Penn National Golf Club & Inn Founders Course

The perfect combination of traditional and modern golf can be found in Fayetteville, Pennsylvania, at Penn National Golf Club, home of two four star, 18-hole championship courses.

The Founders Course (1968-Ed Ault Design) at Penn National, a classic Northeastern-style masterpiece, features large contoured greens, tree-lined rye/bluegrass fairways, sculpted bunkers, and a 7-acre lake.

Streching to just under 7000 yards from the tips, the Founders Course provides a good, old fashioned traditional test of golf. The course turns up the heat at the end, with the best and toughest stretch of holes starting with the par 5 fourteenth.

Nestled in Pennsylvania’s lush Cumberland Valley in Mont Alto, Penn National Golf Club and Inn is located just 20 miles west of Gettysburg. “Play among the stars” at Penn National, located 18 miles west of Gettysburg, close to I-81 and I-70.

Stay & Play packages are available at the on-site 52 room Inn.

For tee times, call 1-800-221-7366. For reservations and packages, 1-800-231-0080 and visit their website at
