Hershey Country Club's East course is one of two 18-hole layouts in the "Hershey Collection". Sitting alongside this highly-regarded layout 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 a layout with 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.
