Join Us For A Hole By Hole Overview

The Williamsport Country Club features a classic Tillinghast course layout that is both picturesque and challenging. For a virtual tour of the golf course layout, see the individual hole layouts and photographs below, or click here for a video tour.

 

#1 (Roadside)

The first hole offers a classic risk-reward play. Playing only 314 yards with a drop in elevation of 50 feet from the tee to the fairway, driver is a tempting choice but out of bounds runs down the entire left side. The prudent play is a fairway wood or long iron to afford a full short iron into the green that runs slightly front to back.



#2 (Oak Lane)

If players thought the course would be a pushover from the looks of No. 1, the second hole bears the teeth this course has. Playing 419 yards from the white tees, longer irons to fairway woods are common for the second shot into another green that slopes front to back and is protected by two large hardwoods fronting both sides of the approach shot.




#3 (Woodsy)

A classic Tillinghast par 3, the third hole measures 207 yards with a long narrow green bordered by bunkers. If there is a place to miss the green, short is the play which allows for a bump and run shot. This green has some of the most subtle breaks found on the course.



#4 (Overbrook)


Guarded by hazards on either side of the fairway, this 370 yard par- 4 demands a confident swing off the tee. The approach shot needs to stay below the hole with a deep green that slopes severely from back to front. Birdies are achievable, but an aggressive can lead to a bogey.



#5 (Uphill)

As the hole’s name states, this 353 yard par- 4 has a shelf that crosses the fairway at the 150 yard marker. Clear it and a short iron makes the play into the two-tiered green easier. Come up short and hitting the green in two becomes more challenging.
