The West Course plays above and through the old downtown area of Hershey and in fact you could end up in Milton Hershey's estate, the High Point Mansion's backyard. This par-73 course has tree-lined fairways, small, soft greens, and numerous water and sand hazards. It has played host to numerous LPGA and PGA tournaments, including the 1940 PGA Championship, won by Byron Nelson, and the LPGA’s Lady Keystone Open for almost 20 years. At 6,860 yards, the West Course has a rating of 72.6 and slope of 130. It was designed by Maurice McCarthy in 1930. The East course was designed by George Fazio, Tom's uncle in 1969 and is just over 7000 yards from the tips, 136, and is a great parkland style of course, tree lined fairways, raised greens, water in play on a few holes, and not real forgiving, and has hosted some Nationwide Events. Both courses extremely well maintained, expensive, and a first class experience.
