Project Description

This project will examine the history of golfing in Hershey, Pennsylvania and take a detailed look at the five courses in town. With 72 holes covering 425-plus acres across five courses, Hershey has more golf courses per capita than just about anyplace else in the world. Providing for his chocolate factory's employees' recreation was an important part of Milton S. Hershey's vision for the community which bears his name.
