In 1919, 4 pieces of land totaling 113 acres were purchased for $11,850. The scenic piece of property in Orwigsburg, PA, allowed all to see for miles in all directions. The original 9-holes of the golf course were designed by world-renowned golf architect Willie Park Jr. and built by Frank James at a cost of $20,700. In 1921, the course and clubhouse officially opened and became known as the Schuylkill Country Club.
In the mid-1940s, additional property was purchased and the course was redesigned to 18 holes by another world-renowned golf course architect, Donald Ross. Ross was involved in designing or redesigning around 400 courses from 1900-1948, laying the foundation for America's golf industry. His challenging layout is known for its fabulously maintained playing conditions in a peaceful, quiet atmosphere.
The challenging and well-manicured golf course at Schuylkill Country Club is recognized as one of the premier courses in the Mid-Atlantic region. The course is member friendly as home course knowledge proves to play a major role in most tournaments. The greens are designed in traditional Donald Ross style and continue to make the course different every time it is played.
