Designed by course architect Les Furber, The Links at Penn Hills’ 18-hole course weaves through waterways, wooded tracts, and rolling terrain for 7,236 yards of challenging golf. Breezes drift onto the course from the nearby Shubenacadie River, creating a tranquil environment for players to split fairways with soaring drives and carb-free clubs. At the end of each hole, bent-grass greens present a slick surface for each testy, breaking putt. Water hazards come into play on six holes, including the par 5 seventh, where shots must clear water and land on a bunker-fortified island green patrolled by a bearded, marooned Tom Hanks. The course promotes game improvement with a training complex that includes a 300-yard driving range, a nine-hole practice green, and a practice bunker. Course at a Glance:
