Partnering with Visionaries… It’s How Wohlsen Works

Posted in: News on September 13, 2016

The golf course that accompanied Lancaster CountryLancaster Country Club Golf Course Club’s earliest clubhouse was among the first 1,000 courses in the United States. Originating in Scotland during the 15th century, it took several hundreds of years for the game to reach America. Despite its delayed adoption, interest from the media and business sponsorships led to the rapid popularization of the sport. Soon, the nine-hole Lancaster Golf course on Juliette & Frances Avenues was falling behind par.

During the early 20th century, Lancaster Country Club, like golf, rapidly grew in popularity. They built a new clubhouse in 1913 with a proper 18-hole golf course. In 1919 William Flynn redesigned the course. Flynn is one of the most prominent golf course architects from the “Golden Age” of golf.

Given its long history with the sport, Lancaster Country Club is a mainstay in the world of golf. During the summer of 2015, the country club hosted the LGPA’s U.S. Women’s Open and also restored some of its 31 holes to their Flynn-like glory.

Wohlsen is proud to share a history with the prestigious club that played a fundamental role in popularizing golf in the Central Pennsylvania region.
