As seen on NEPAMOM.com
My kids are big golfers and while summer may be winding down, if you ask my son, now is the perfect time to hit the links and play some golf. Courses are in good shape, weather is cooling off and there is just something peaceful about golf courses during the fall. Years ago, when we lived in Hershey we belonged to the Hershey Country Club and it is still one of my son’s favorite places to Golf in Hershey PA when playing in golf tournaments. While the Hershey Country Club is private and accessible only to members, guests of The Hotel Hershey and Hershey Lodge also have the privilege of golfing at this awesome and historic facility.
Milton Hershey opened Hershey Country Club in 1930 on the twin principles of sporting excellence and refined luxury and that rich tradition continues today.
