In early April, Whitetail Resort and its parent company Snow Time, Inc. announced the purchase of the Whitetail Golf Resort. Located a short drive from the ski resort, the Whitetail Golf Resort originally opened in 2000 and has been operated by the Hummelstown General Authority since then. The course will now be operated directly by Whitetail Resort.
“We are thrilled at the prospect of adding the Golf Course to our operation at Whitetail which at this time includes skiing, snowboarding, snow tubing, and a fly fishing school,” said Whitetail’s President Don MacAskill in a news release. “The acquisition of the golf course allows us to move in the direction of becoming a four season destination, and this purchase will greatly benefit visitors to our region.”
Whitetail has operated the Dusty Wissmath Fly Fishing School since 1997. In the late 90’s, Whitetail also offered mountain biking during the summer months, but discontinued the program several years ago.
The 18-hole Whitetail Golf Course was designed by Rick Robbins and has been described by Golf Magazine as “breathtaking, five stars, a must play.” The facility includes a full service snack bar, rentals, and lessons. The regular rate for an 18-hole game is $35 with cart on weekdays and $49 with cart on weekends and holidays. Discounts are available for seniors and after 1 p.m. Season passes are also available.
