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

Hershey Country Club's East course is the longest and most challenging in the Hershey collection. Players will enjoy elevated greens, three small lakes, and more than 100 bunkers through which to manoeuvre. This lightly tree-lined parkland layout provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy. In recent times, many top level tournaments have been hosted on this modern and demanding layout.

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.
