Description

The Hershey Park Golf Course opened in 1930, and was designed by famed golf course architect Maurice McCarthy who also designed the Hershey Country Club's West Course, the 9-hole Spring Creek Golf Course and the Hotel Hershey Course. The Hershey Park Golf Course was his first effort in Hershey and featured a challenging 18 holes with lots of changes in elevation and a meandering stream.

In the 1970s the course's name was changed to Parkview Golf Course. At 6,332 yards, the par-71 course featured traditional narrow fairways and was consistently ranked among the top public courses in south-central Pennsylvania. Renamed the Country Club on Hershey - South Course, it was managed by American Golf Company from 1994 until 2002. Hershey Entertainment and Resorts Company bought it back from American Golf Company, renaming it Parkview Golf Course. Then in 2005, the course closed forever.
