Great Gorge Country Club is a virtual golfer’s paradise.  The George Fazio designed Golf Digest 4-Star-rated, twenty-seven hole complex offers a truly exceptional challenge for golfers of all skill levels.  Opened in 1970 as an amenity to Hugh Hefner’s famed Great Gorge Playboy Club, this classic course continues to stand the test of time, winning awards and maintaining popularity with golfers year after year.

In spring 2004, Crystal Springs Resort assumed management of the Great Gorge Country Club, enhancing the golf experience at Great Gorge with the expertise gained in the operation of the other five award-winning resort golf clubs.

Great Gorge Country Club is comprised of three separate and distinct nine-hole courses:
The Quarryside Course – From the back tees, this is the most demanding nine.  This course plays through spectacular rock outcroppings and diverse water hazards.
The Lakeside Course – Designed to be a fair challenge for all levels of play, this nine is set amid sparkling lakes and mature trees, and features dramatic elevation changes.
The Railside Course – The most scenic nine is also the most forgiving as strategically protected greensites are sculpted into the dramatic terrain.  The par-3 third hole on the Railside Course features artifacts from the railroad era in a formation reminiscent of Stonehenge.
Amenities and services include a pro shop, bar and restaurant, driving range and putting greens, a chipping area, lockers, showers, PGA professional instruction and club rentals.
