Philipsburg Elks Lodge & Country Club
The Philipsburg Elks Lodge & C.C., located in Philipsburg, PA, is a short 20 minute drive from State College, PA. The course was designed by Alexander H. Findlay, "The Father of American Golf", and opened in 1922. Mr. Findlay also designed such local courses as Clinton CC (1910), Centre Hills CC (1921), Curwensville CC (1924) and Tyrone GC (1925).
The Philipsburg Elks Lodge & C.C. is a nine hole USGA course measuring only 5600 yards but has many challenges that make up for its short length. The course has small, undulating, quick greens that puts a premium on the approach shot. The greens are surrounded by elevation changes, mounds and 29 total bunkers. The fairways are contoured so you are not left with many level lies. The course also features different sets of tees from front to back changing the par on several holes.

Golf Committee News
It is no secret that things are a little quiet this year on the golf course, so the Golf Committee and the Trustees have taken action. We have developed 4 golf specials that we have implemented with one goal in mind…getting people to come and play our course.
1 – Monday’s - $16 for 18 holes with cart
2 – Thursday’s - $20 for 18 holes with cart
3 – 10 rounds of golf with cart for $250. This pass can be used 7 days a week with making a tee time. Kind of like a trial membership period so we can showcase our club to potential new members.
4 – Elk Days – we will be inviting our Brother Elk lodges to Philipsburg on different weekend afternoons to play golf for $25 for 18 holes with cart.
The more people we have coming up the hill gives us a greater opportunity into making them members. The more members we have, the more we can realize our ultimate goal we set every year, keep golf dues as low as possible. And, we have a beautiful golf course which should be used—it’s a resource we should share, not keep to ourselves.
We are asking our golf members to help us with this. These specials will only work if our current members promote what we have. It’s as simple as telling your co-workers, neighbors, family and friends about these specials and the kind of facilities we offer. If every golf member would bring three guests to play between now and October, we could generate over $13,000 toward making up for the slow start to the year and the decrease in the number of members this year.
Also, any member who brings guests up on non-special days, will receive special pricing for their guests of $25 for 18 holes with cart.
The golf membership has always risen to the occasion in the past and the Golf Committee is asking for that now to help build our membership back up to past levels. What we have to offer is greater than ever…we just need to get them to see it in person.
