Central PA Golf Guide

Course Review: Sinking Valley Country Club

The golf course at the Sinking Valley Country Club is a hidden gem. Tucked away in the mountains of central PA, between Tyrone and Altoona, the course is very well maintained and fun to play. You will enjoy a quiet and peaceful round and may even see some wildlife (I saw a few deer as I was playing). The course itself is pretty open. Most mistakes can be recovered. A number of elevation changes require extra care in club selection.  The greens are protected by a number of sand bunkers, with a few that really make you think about your shot placement. Water comes into play on a few holes, with #10 being a short par 3 with a shot over a pond. If you are a long hitter, this course offers plenty of opportunities to showcase your talents. Hole #17 is the longest on the course at 617 yards from the white tees.

Overall, the course was a fun experience. I had the pleasure to play the round with a group of regular members who helped with some tips and tricks of the course, which really made the round even more enjoyable.
