Golf at The Historic Summit Inn
The Summit’s golf course, built in the early 20′s is rich in history. As one of the earliest courses in the area, it attracted some of the games best. Sam Parks Jr., winner of the 1935 US Open, was the Summit Inn’s golf pro in 1931. He went on to have a very successful career competing in 18 Masters tournaments, 14 US Opens, and 12 PGA Championships. In 1923, Pete Dye’s father played his first round of golf here at The Summit. He then returned to Ohio, gathered a group of investors together and designed and built a 9-hole course called Urbana Country Club.
The Summit Inn’s mountaintop golf course features large undulating greens, spectacular views and tree-lined fairways that afford generous landing areas. The most difficult hole is #8, a 170-yard par 3, featuring a triple-tiered green. The most scenic hole is #4, a 345-yard par 4, offering a sixty-mile view of the Pennsylvania countryside. Although there are only 9 holes on our regulation style course, there is an additional set of mens tees for your second trip around providing you with a full 18 hole experience.
Call or contact our knowledgable staff for more details.
