Huntingdon Valley Country Club: Toomey/Flynn

Huntingdon Valley, PA Private

Overview

Founded in 1897, Huntingdon Valley started out as a nine-hole course before expanding to 18 in the 1910s. The club then had to move to its present site in the 1920s and acquired enough land for 27 holes. The main 18 was designed by William Flynn and Howard Toomey and opened for play in 1928.The third nine called the C course fell into disrepair during the Great Depression and only the main 18 was maintained. However to coincide with the club’s centennial, they hired Ron Prichard to bring back what is now called the Centennial nine. The greens are difficult in terms of both undulation and slope. Huntingdon's routing is its strength, as it makes great use of incredibly rolling topography where the only flat lie one gets is on the tee box. It also takes advantage of the valley and creek that the property sits on meaning golfers have to navigate and avoid the tough features they bring.
