Description

Country Club of York - PA-0668 - found in 1885, Mr. Grier Hersh, a banker and prominent businessman, laid York's first known golf course at his estate known as "Springdale". It was a nine-hole course, which measured only 2,281 yards with a par of 34. He often invited friends to join him for a round of golf. One of his friends, a Mr. A. B. Farquhar wrote in his autobiography "The First Million Is the Hardest" the following:I took the Colonel (Keitt) over to a neighbor, Grier Hersh and we talked over things connected with the war (Civil War), and Mr. Hersh took usout to explain the new game of golf, a course for which he had just started. It was the first golf course started in York and the first time it had come to my attention.
