The Country Club of Scranton is host to an original 18-hole course designed by the famous Golf Course Architect Walter Travis in 1927. The “New Nine,” as it was named, was designed by Dr. Michael Hurdzan in 1988 and, like the original course, is best known for its large undulating greens. The three nines, appropriately named the Pines, Willows and Falls, combine to make three eighteen-hole courses, the Old, North, and South. Each nine offers a wide variety of challenges but each is still forgiving in its own way, which makes the course attractive to both low- and high-handicaps players alike. The facility includes 27 championship holes of golf, a large multi-tiered putting green, a practice range with target greens, and a pitching and chipping area.
