Philipsburg Elks Lodge and Country Club
The golf course was constructed in 1922 and has had very few major changes to it over the years. The 5595 yard Par 70 course is very deceiving because shot placement is a premium off the tee and onto the green. The fairways are a medium width for tee shots but most fairways have some sort of slope which can influence the end result and the next shot. A well placed shot will be necessary to overcome a dry river bed and over 25 bunkers in regulation. The greens are small and fast which leads to a few 3 putts if you are above the pin. Many players from all around come to challenge the course but only a few over the course of a season ever break par.
Our signature hole is the 356 yard par 4 third hole. The hole dog legs to the left and a dry creek bed about 230 yards runs through the middle of the tree lined fairway. Once you get your tee shot in the fairway the fun has only begun as you are left with about a 125 - 150 yard shot straight up hill with a large tree on each side of the green, along with several mounds and 3 bunkers protecting the small green. Once you get on the green you still can't relax because the green is severally sloped and putting is no fun on this hole.
