Where2Golf says: 

Hershey Country Club (West course) is one of two 18-hole in the "Hershey Collection". Sitting alongside the highly-regarded East course, Hershey's West course is an older and shorter layout than its sibling. Guests staying at the Hotel Hershey or Hershey Lodge enjoy access to both these member-only layouts.

Hershey Country Club's West course is a well-rated and always popular golf layout. This tree-lined and open parkland course should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy. Older and shorter than its companion East course, the West has a distinguished history of hosting top level tournaments, including the US PGA Championship in 1940. The course also brings you alongside part of Hershey's chocolate production facility, with one hole played in front of the original Milton S. Hershey Mansion (now part of the Hershey Trust).

A mile away from the Country Club, and open to the public, you'll find the chocolatier's nine-hole Spring Creek course. Until 2013 the collection also included the Hershey Links. This open British-style layout was also operated on a public access basis but shut down in 2013 to make way for student housing.
