Type Public
Par 72
Length 7069 yards
Slope 144
Rating 74.1
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.

Course was wet windy but fair. Played long and tough pulled out a 44 on the front and 40 on the back not bad for windy and wet winter golf. Had not played the course since it first opened.

One Of The Best in the Area

Fantastic layout. Only one mundane hole—a par 3 on the first 9. Greens will test your putter and greens are fair and large and undulating. The Members tees at 5800 yds will be more than enough course for the average golfer. Course handicap for most will see a 3 stroke increase.

Only downside is the number of events held at the course. Can result in slow play and unfortunately many of these golfers don’t repair divots or green ball marks.

Great course but sooooo slow

This is a beautiful and challenging course that is in pretty nice shape for the end of the season. However, our round was ridiculously slow. It took us three hours to play the first nine holes and two hours to play the back nine. On one hole (#7), we had four foursomes trying to play at the same time. A ranger came around (very nice) and apologized for the delay, blaming it on a slow group of older men four holes ahead. However, I think the real cause is that they are overplaying the course and scheduling tee times only 9 minutes apart! It’s like trying to squeeze 100 extra cars onto an already jammed freeway. This course has a lot going for it, but there is no excuse for a painfully slow round where you have to wait in every single shot.

Gettysburg up to par

Pace of play was good. Cart paths only was understandable due to the excessive rain recently but drainage is generally pretty good.

Hidden Gem an hour from Leesburg, VA

Hadn't played this course in several years and played it twice the last week in August (senior rate). If this course was a half hour away, I would join. The conditions are excellent, as is the layout and pace of play. The 2nd time I played with a member who was very nice. Course makes you think. The par 5s are risk reward. Greens are difficult so if you are above the hole, pray for a two putt. Greens are fast & if you hit a good approach shot it will suck back at least a foot. I'll be back with some friends.

POOR SERVICE

I made a tee time on GOLF NOW. When we arrived, our name was not on the courses tee sheet for the day. I brought along my printed confirmation for our tee time. The course staff blamed GOLF NOW for over booking the course. Pace of play extremely SLOW. 5 and 1/2 hours for the round. Waited on every shot. Asked staff to help out, nothing changed. Ranger did nothing to change pace of play. Played this course many times in the past. Now I would not recommend.....

Course is well manicured.

Greens are the gatekeeper for scoring integrity.

Front desk stated they do NOT partake in Golf Now deals, but they also admitted that there have been glitches in getting their account removed (from Golf Now). The front desk person was clearly frustrated in trying to get us out.

However, course rangers were out in full -- actually saw 4 personnel multiple times policing the pace of play. It was still a five hour round, but they were working the pace -- hats off to the effort.

Top notch

This course ranks high on the states best public courses list. It is not for the faint of heart. The holes have diversity and plenty of challenge. Is it Oakmont or Merion? No, but for public course experience it is one of the best I have experienced. We played on an early spring day but course conditions were just fine and I am sure they improve into peak season. The greens are big and have subtle undulations and slants to them that keep you guessing. A few greens are set into the landscape that features natural red rock backdrops. Water comes into play on most of the holes and it is prominent on the back nine from the 12th hole to the finish. Take your A game and be sure to play the right set of tees to manage your game for the best experience.

Course in ex. shape even with wet conditions, cart path only. Played in little over 3 hrs.

Jason was very cooperative with us, left us go off early to beat the incoming rain, which we did. Has to be one the best and nicest courses in the area. Well worth the money.

Don't bother playing this year.

"Fungus" is what I was told caused the fairways to completely fail. Greens are good, most of the tee boxes are good. Fairways are destroyed. If you -do- absolutely -have- to play here, do not pay more than $20. It's just not worth it.

LOVE this course. One of my top ten courses. Can't wait for it to come back to it's former glory. Until then...nope.
