Hershey Country Club (West course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1930

Hershey Country Club's West course is one of two 18-hole layouts in the "Hershey Collection". Sitting alongside the also highly-regarded East course, the West 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.

The West has a distinguished history of hosting top level tournaments, including the US PGA Championship in 1940. The course 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). This tree-lined and open parkland course should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy.

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.

Who's Who

Céline Boutier: with many successes as both an amateur and professional golfer, Boutier added a major championship title to her impressive résumé at this year’s Evian Championship.

Alex Cejka: buffeted by rain and high winds, especially on the high-scoring final day, Čejka prevailed over Pádraig Harrington in a playoff at Royal Porthcawl, to scoop the Senior Open Championship title.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
