Links at Gettysburg
The Links at Gettysburg sprawls across rolling hills situated near the hallowed grounds where the defining battle of the Civil War took place. The golf course wages a formidable challenge itself, featuring 35 steep rock cliffs where the stone-lined tee boxes are perched and 10 lakes and waterfalls that come into play throughout. Red rock cart paths give a contrast to the lush greens and sparkling blue waters. The dramatic elevations allow golfers to enjoy stunning views of the surrounding countryside but the scenery can be almost too distracting since the demanding layout requires all of your attention. Be prepared for a bevy of strategically placed bunkers as well as mature trees. With the challenging layout and unrivaled views, it is no surprise that the Links at Gettysburg is ranked as one of the top 10 golf courses in Pennsylvania.

Another so so experience
Hi there, I’ve lived in the mid atl for 30 years and have been back-and-forth to the Links Of Gettysburg off and on. My last time there was in 2019, the summer, and the course was in really bad shape. I had read that 2020 was much better and was looking forward to a more pleasant experience today the first weekend in May. I was disappointed. For $80, I expect a pristine golf course. The greens were bumpy, the aeration and sanding had not healed, they did not roll well. The bunkers were not well cared for, the rough around the greens was very inconsistent. For that price point, it should be a much better experience. I can drive 15 miles in another direction to play Penn national and simply is no comparison from a manicure and maintenance standpoint. I won’t be back again for a while, I had some neighbors I had never played there and wanted to go out so I said I’d be happy to join. I was so disappointed, and $55 I would not be but at 80, it is way over priced
Decent Golf in Southern PA
I was very excited to try the links at Gettysburg after hearing rave reviews from friends that had played there. After the round, I left somewhat disappointed after making the hour drive from Baltimore.
The range is very minimal and was mats only. The mats were in bad shape and you couldn't hit a driver off of them. The range and the practice green are across the parking lot from one another, so be sure to hit a few putts before heading to the range and the 1st tee.
The first 5 or so holes at Gettysburg seem tight and don't fit in with the rest of the course. Once you get to the 6th hole, it really opens up and that's where all the dramatic views and water come into play. From a layout perspective, there were quite a few holes sacrificed to create the signature holes on the course. The two easiest holes are 470 yard par 5s that seem to just be there to get to a par 72. The signature holes were great, but were weighed down by a few downer holes sprinkled throughout. Condition wise, the greens were bumpy and slow. It looked like they had aerated a few weeks ago, so its understandable. What was really disappointing were the uneven tee boxes and bunkers with little to no sand. For $81 on the weekend, I would hope for there to not be large chunks of solid mud/clay throughout the bunkers.
Overall - 3/5 with the signature holes really saving the day.
This course was by far the in best condition around the area. Loved this course.
Nicest course around
Best course I’ve ever played. It really challenges you off the tee. First time there and I was a solo. Starter let me borrow his course guide. Helped so much!
Paying less than $50 here is a absolute bargain. I live and play a lot of MD courses and this course is in the top 10%. This course is as hard as you want it to be based of the various tees, but it's not easy from anywhere. The greens were punched but should be rounding into perfect shape in a week or so. The rest of the course was surprisingly great for this early in the season. I was matched up with a nice 3some and we finished our round is 4:15, mainly because the group in front of us was a bit slow as it was a car path only day. (I'm glad it was! Keeps the course much, much nicer.) Phenominal layout. I'll be back often this year.
