Deer Valley Golf Course in Hummelstown boasts one of the most affordable rounds you'll find in the Hershey/Harrisburg area. Since opening in 2005, more than 850 trees have been added and it has matured into a course favored by both visitors and locals. The layout features large, elevated greens and massive multi-tiered tees. From the golf course's peaks, the views stretch all the way to Hershey and the Blue Mountains. The winding layout twists and turns, doglegging left and right. It's a challenging layout round despite the absence of sand bunkers. There is however, thick rough and a number of grass bunkers to watch out for. Water only makes a brief appearance. Deer Valley Golf Course isn't overly challenging but for a fun and fair test, it's an affordable option that also offers some beautiful scenery.

Interested course

We picked the course by chance on our way to Penn State for football game.
First off the staff was awesome. Absolutely cannot beat the price. Beer only at the pro shop, $3.50 for 16oz cans 👍🏻. The course layout is a bit goofy. 5- par 5’s and 5 -par 3’s !
Par 3 on 9 and par 3 on ten makes for an unpleasant backup👎🏻
However, the bottom line is the course is in such GREAT condition that I highly recommend playing it if your in the area.
