Hershey Resorts is offering golfers a chance to play 100 holes a day at Hershey Country Club as part of its Centennial Golf Package, which was created in honor of the “100 Years of Happy” celebration at Hersheypark.
Though playing 100 holes in one day may be a stretch, the Centennial Golf Package includes unlimited golf on the date of stay, which makes it inviting to play from dawn to dusk or turn a day trip into a multi-day, 100-hole visit.
The package, which is valid from April 6 through December 31, includes:
• Deluxe accommodations at The Hotel Hershey or Hershey Lodge • Same-day unlimited greens fees at Hershey Country Club on the East or West courses • Same-day unlimited golf cart • Commemorative 100th anniversary of Hersheypark putter cover • Unlimited practice range balls • Complimentary admission to Hershey Gardens and Hershey Museum At Hershey Lodge, prices start from $200* for weekend stays (Friday – Saturday) and $179* for midweek stays (Sunday – Thursday). Prices at The Hotel Hershey start from $229* for midweek and from $249 for weekends. At The Hotel Hershey and Hershey Lodge, children ages nine to 18 can stay for a rate starting from $99.
Hershey Resorts are the official resorts of the “100 Years of Happy”
celebration and provide guests with a variety of special ways to share in the celebration, including exciting entertainment, one-of-a-kind commemorative gifts, and special food and beverage offerings.
The highlight in Hershey this year will be the unveiling of the biggest attraction Hersheypark has ever opened, The Boardwalk At Hersheypark. A grand tribute to the legendary boardwalks of the Northeast, The Boardwalk At Hersheypark will captivate guests with more than 100 fun-in-the-sun experiences, including the flavors, sounds and activities of an old-fashioned boardwalk, as well as the world’s largest water-play structure. The Boardwalk is scheduled to open on Memorial Day weekend.
In addition to the centennial of Hersheypark, 2007 marks the 100th anniversary of one of Milton Hershey’s most beloved creations, the Hershey’s Kiss, and the 150th anniversary of the birth of Milton Hershey himself. It was Mr. Hershey whose passion for golf brought the sport to his town. In fact, the fifth hole of the West Course of Hershey Country Club is right on the front lawn of his mansion.
Consistently ranked among the top resorts in the United States, Hershey Resorts’ guests have extended playing privileges at Hershey Country Club, which features two spectacular and distinctive 18-hole private courses. The West Course is a classic par-72 layout that winds its way through tree-lined fairways and challenging hazards. The signature hole of the West Course is the par-3 fifth hole with High Point Mansion, Milton Hershey’s former home, as a spectacular backdrop. On the East Course, a par-71, designer George Fazio captured the natural beauty of Central Pennsylvania’s countryside with spectacular views that golfers can appreciate on every hole. The 7,061-yard course boasts numerous natural hazards, rolling fairways and difficult greens. The East Course hosted a Nationwide Tour event for eight years.
