Get into the Swing of Things at Spring Creek Golf Course

If you’ve never heard of or golfed at Spring Creek Golf Course you’re missing out. Originally named the Juvenile Golf Club, Milton Hershey opened the course in 1932. At the time it was the first course in the United States open to players age 17 and younger, and allowed adolescent players to golf for a fee of $.35. For several years one could only partake in the game of golf at Spring Creek if invited by a junior under the age of 18. In 1969, the name was changed to highlight Spring Creek, the water hazard that winds throughout the course. The age restriction has since been lifted but it still remains a beginner-friendly course, and is open to and enjoyed by the public of all ages.

Spring Creek claims bragging rights for being the area’s longest nine-hole golf course. It features 2,200 yards of lush greens, holes lined with mature trees and golfers enjoy the natural Spring Creek stream winding throughout. This par 33 course is perfect for players of all ages – especially those just getting into the game of golf.

If you’re looking to switch up your golf game, but are short on time a relatively new offering is FootGolf. This combines the best of soccer and golf to make for a fun, new game. FootGolf is played on the course and a soccer ball is kicked into a series of large holes with the object being to complete the course using the fewest possible shots. This is a great team building activity and is typically finished in under two hours.

Don’t miss this gem of a course located on Chocolate Avenue. Golf or FootGolf. Young or old. Beginner or novice. You’ll have a sweet time at Spring Creek Golf Course.
