Guest Information

Welcome to the Country Club of York. We are proud to be Central Pennsylvania’s only Donald Ross designed course that dates back to 1926. We benefit from the course’s classical layout which rolls through the hills of York providing unique views of the surrounding farmlands. We strive to preserve the traditions and history which distinguish our Club.

A suggested standard 4 hours for a foursome and 3 ¼ hours for a twosome to complete 18 holes. It is the group’s responsibility to keep up with like groups in front of them and if it is delaying the group behind it should invite the group behind to play thorough, irrespective of the number of players in that group.

Course Care

We ask that you please help take care of the course by way of repairing your ball marks, replacing your divots or using the sand and seed mix provided, and raking your own bunker. In addition, golf carts should not be driving within 30 yards of each green and you should exit the fairways to the cart path side of the green.
