Featured Golf Course Review:
Philipsburg Country Club -- Great little secret in Central PA
Review by: John Smith This is a very hilly course that is not too long. The greens are small and will yield many 3 putts if you are in the wrong spot. There are a lot of risk reward holes to make birdies or double bogeys. With small fast greens and the hilly terain, anything around par is a great score the average player with a 14 handicap should expect to play around 83 golf. Well maintaned golf course, good food and service in the dinning room. The pro shop staff is very professional and accomidating. The best thing is the cheap cart(highly reccomend to take one) and green fees less then $40 a player. This is my second favorite thing to do on a Penn State football weekend, of course the Nittany Lions are the first thing.

Cumberland Golf Club -- Underappreciated Track
Review by: Reed Galinac Cumberland is the kind of course avid golfers love. Located a short drive along I-81 S from Harrisburg, this mature course never seems to be choked with casual golfers, so it isn't often you find yourself waiting to make every shot. The course's hallmarks are its challenging par 3s, which, if memory serves, play roughly 187, 205, 167, and 178 (no wedges off the tees, please), and two of the nicest (and longest!) finishing holes in the area. Whether you're bidding to break 100, 90, or 80, the 17th & 18th at Cumberland will MAKE YOU EARN IT! There's also a driveable par 4 that isn't simply a grip it and rip it type -- you've got to be able to work the ball right to left to achieve glory. The place has charm, too. How many courses require you to make two subterranean forrays as you work your way around the course. Throw in generally well-maintained greens and prime time rates of under $40 with cart, and you've got the makings of nifty course that, inexplicably, continues to be a fairly well-kept secret. Bottom Line: Play it once, and you'll be back.
