The Links at Gettysburg sprawls across rolling hills situated near the hallowed grounds where the defining battle of the Civil War took place. The golf course wages a formidable challenge itself, featuring 35 steep rock cliffs where the stone-lined tee boxes are perched and 10 lakes and waterfalls that come into play throughout. Red rock cart paths give a contrast to the lush greens and sparkling blue waters. The dramatic elevations allow golfers to enjoy stunning views of the surrounding countryside but the scenery can be almost too distracting since the demanding layout requires all of your attention. Be prepared for a bevy of strategically placed bunkers as well as mature trees. With the challenging layout and unrivaled views, it is no surprise that the Links at Gettysburg is ranked as one of the top 10 golf courses in Pennsylvania.

Excellent layout

This golf course is a good challenge for all levels of players. The greens are difficult and are in very good shape. Bunker sound is quite good. Fairways could use a little work, but in general are OK. The course has many interesting and challenging holes.

First Timer

Invested in the yardage book at the pro shop which is a must for the first time player. It's a course you have to select your club wisely or you will find yourself through the fairway or in the drink. Water and sand on almost every hole. Greens don't look the best but roll true and were fast. They were cutting the high rough around the course so didn't look the best, but still a very nice course.

Disappointed for such a nice course

What happened to the golf ethics? Divots were everywhere on the fairway and ball marks on the greens. For such a nice course, you would think the golfers that play there are not beginners or without good golf ethics. The course layout are very nice and challenging. I hope the staff will remind the golfers to take care of the divots and ball mark, Else the course will go downhill.

Just a Great Course!

First time playing this year, and the course was in good condition. Some of the tee boxes were a little chewed up, and there was water in several bunkers; however, the fairways were in good shape, the rough was thick, and the greens were firm and rolling true. We had a little trouble getting there because Mason-Dixon Road was closed, and we got stuck behind line painting, but they held our tee time. Unfortunately, though, when we went into pay, there was a long line and only one register opened. Evidently, there was a Tuesday special and lots of people trying to check in. Not sure why only one check-in person (because there were two behind the desk), but it is what it is. We were rushed out to the tee and it took us a couple of holes to settle in to a good pace of play. We never held anyone up and was done in a little over 4 hours. I really like this course, and definitely recommend it.

A must play course

We’ve played here a few times a year for 3-4 years and are never disappointed. One time the pace of play was really slow and they do go to cart-path only at the slightest threat of rain. However, it’s a course that’s worth the trip. Conditions are always good to excellent. Layout is challenging and fun with lots of elevation changes and some nice risk-reward holes. Scenery is really nice, too, especially with the red rock backdrop on three of the holes. Back 9 much tougher than the front as water comes into play on multiple holes.

Good Value and Fun layout

Staff was awesome, excellent layout. Greens were quite a bit slower than what we were used to. Course is interesting and very scenic. Lots of fun and would go back.

Great Condition Except for Some Bunkers

Greens were beautiful as were the fairways. Some bunkers had sand, some did not. Other than bunkers I would give a 5 star rating. Pace of play great. Bring friends back next week to play it.

One of the better courses.

Played in a twosome. Was a little chilly, but expected that this time of year. Fairways were good, to early to be great. That will happen when it’s get warmer. Same for the greens, not great but good for this time of year. Overall today’s experience was very good. Had fun and and the course was a good challenge. Every time playing this course never had a bad experience. Would recommend playing this course to all golfers.

Cold April day

Layout of the course was great. Greens were aerated about 3 weeks earlier. Bumpy as expected. Was in a foursome. The day was about 42 degrees. Not too many people playing today. All that being said, it was a delight to play this course again, expected a challenge and it was. Yes definitely would recommend this course to everyone. The staff was very friendly. We all had a very good experience playing here today.

Interesting Layout

An interesting, attractive layout requiring course management. Surprising amount of elevation changes and blind shots. Still early in season with greens aeration so putting on sand. Some soft fairways and more water in play than expected. Bunkers in decent condition for early in season. Very friendly staff and value priced food. Will play again when course has greened out.

played bad, still had a nice time

This was my second time here, I played horribly, but I couldn't blame anything but me. Both times played the course was in great condition, and all staff was friendly. Great day, great early spring conditions, too many slices to make it a perfect day :P
