Best Public Golf Courses in Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania is forever etched in golf history as the home to the Foxburg Country Club, which since 1887 is the oldest golf course in continuous use in the US. 50% of the state is covered by forestland and the entire state rolls over the hills, plateaus, ridges, and valleys with the Pocono and Allegheny ranges of the Appalachian Mountains exerting the major influence. Rivers dominate the east and west borders with the Delaware River beginning at the Delaware Water Gap and the Allegheny, Ohio, Monongahela and Susquehanna rivers on the west.
