The Founders Course at Penn National sits on the site of an old iron mine. In the 1960’s the land was turned into the present-day golf course.
This is a traditional design that features narrow fairways, a number of doglegs, and small greens. In the summer the greens get firm and fast. Stay below the hole if you want to putt aggressively.The real meat of the Founders Course comes in the last five holes. Starting with the par five 14th, this stretch of holes is the one of the toughest in the state. If you make it through 18 holes with your scorecard intact, it’s an accomplishment.
