Sesquicentennial Anniversary of the Civil War

Gettysburg, Pennsylvania is home to much more than Civil war history and national attractions, albeit they are all nice activities to do in the afternoon. Gettysburg is also home to outstanding golf tracks that allow a ‘living history’ experience for golfers to battle it out, just using different tools. Top notch golf tracks await, with reasonable rates in comparison to larger metro areas. What’s nice is the combination of great golf with other things to do, making it really easy to groups with all kinds of likes. In addition to the things you would expect here, there are also several wineries and shopping options. The outlets are conveniently located off of Rt. 15 and there are independently owned shops within the historic district of Gettysburg.

The Gettysburg region is really made up of three small towns concentrated together. The far west side of the area is Chambersburg which features Penn National and their two courses for a 36-hole option. Golfers love these two tracks and the favorite varies greatly upon the individual golfer. On the other far eastern side, sandwiched between Gettysburg and York, is Hanover where you will find some great golf at great values including South Hills and Flatbush. Within Gettysburg itself are three of Gettysburg’s best tracks – Quail Valley, the Bridges and the Links at Gettysburg. No trip to the area is complete without playing at least one of these courses or experiencing the characteristic red clay & panoramic views at the Links.

The accommodation choices are all centralized within the Gettysburg area. It is more convenient for golfers, since it is where the other activities and dining is located. Grouping the accommodations geographically, there are two full-service hotels on the eastern side of Rt. 30 – Cross Keys Motor Inn and the Bridges Guest Quarters. They are only a mile from one another and just ten minutes from Gettysburg.

Conveniently located at the Rt. 15 and Rt. 30 interchange are several other properties. On the east side are the Courtyard by Marriott and the Wyndham Hotel located in a newly -built complex which includes a movie theater. On the other side of Rt. 15 is the Days Inn, a limited service facility with several restaurants within a short drive or walk. If highway convenience is your biggest priority, these properties offer just that. Within the town of Gettysburg proper are two hotels. The Comfort Suites is next door to the Pike Restaurant, a golfer’s favorite. The 1863 Inn at Gettysburg places golfers a little more downtown, with numerous restaurants available on foot. No matter which hotel you choose, they all offer access and convenience to our recommended courses.
