First Time Playing

Milton Hershey’s Championship Course

Course by designed by Maurice McCarthy during depression for Milton Hershey and his friends with the intent to host championship events. Course hosted the 1940 PGA Championship.

The 11 original holes that remain are worth the effort to play and they flow effortlessly over the rolling terrain. The holes around Hershey’s mansion and wives former greens are three of the most unique and fun holes you will find anywhere.

I hope the resort and club keep the McCarrh holes they have and do not alter them any further.
