18 Hole Golf Course


Olde Homestead Golf Club proudly offers an award-winning 18-Hole Championship Course which is open to the general public. With continuous cart paths that literally go over the river and through the woods, along with some that follow the rolling hills of Pennsylvania's countryside, Olde Homestead's 18-Hole Course is truly one to be seen. This links style course is also home to several aspects of Olde Homestead's ancestral heritage including a summer kitchen from the original 1700's homestead, a restored one-room schoolhouse, and a pair of drive-through corn cribs.

Olde Homestead's 18-Hole daily fee course was designed by Jim Blaukovitch Associates and opened in 1995. Each hole features five tee boxes making the course fair and enjoyable for scratch golfers and high handicappers alike. Our rye-grass fairways are fairly wide and trees are typically not a factor in play. Greens are medium speed with a fair (but not excessive) number of green-side bunkers.

Challenges include water hazards, which come into play on 10 of the 18 holes, and undulating bent-grass greens, many with three tiers. The course features an above-average number of fairway bunkers and a defined cut of deep rough which can add strokes to your score if you're not careful.
