Rolling Green is a “must play” course in the Philadelphia area, and is ranked among the top 10 courses in Pennsylvania and the 100 Best Classical Courses in America. The course was designed in 1926 by noted golf course architect William Flynn, whose portfolio of outstanding area courses includes Huntingdon Valley, Lancaster Country Club, Philadelphia Country Club and Manufacturers. Flynn also designed a number of championship courses nationwide, including Cherry Hills in Denver (1993 U.S. Senior Open), The Country Club in Boston (1999 Ryder Cup), Shinnocock Hills in Southampton, Long Island (1995, 2004 U.S. Open), and the classic Cascades Course at the Homestead in Virginia. Rolling Green hosted the 1976 US Women’s Open Championship and the 2016 US Women’s Amateur.

Individual prizes will be awarded for longest drive, straightest drive, closest-to-the-pin (all par threes), and the traditional “Double-Flag Birdie Challenge” on Rolling Green’s fabulous 16th Hole. Team prizes will be awarded for low gross and low net. Hole-in-one prizes apply on all par threes (car, travel packages, and/or cash prize).
