10/14/2005Bogeyman and I decided to venture to our old college stomping grounds and incorporate a research trip on the way. We visited Whitetail in Mercersburg PA, just north of Clearspring MD and I-70 exit 19. We had not been to Whitetail in 4 years and being the curious golf reviewers that we are, decided to check it out for all the Waggle-ites out there. We’re happy to report that the course is as good as we remembered it the first time. With fairways generous enough (for most holes) to be slightly forgiving, extremely nice playing conditions from tee to green, beautiful scenery and a quick pace of play, what’s not to like? The front nine is fairly open but there are a few holes to check your club off the tee as there are some hazards in the range that most of us can hit the driver – so take a look at the tee box before gripping and ripping as most of them tell you the distance to any hazards out there. I especially remember and enjoyed the difference after hole #11 going to #12 when you seemed to “go up into the mountains” after a long cart ride crossing over a fairly large body of water. The next several holes are not as wide open as previously mentioned but the beautiful scenery “made” us hit good shots. As we’ve indicated before, Bogeyman and Lefty give this track “two thumbs up”. Lefty
10/25/2003Whitetail is under new management this year and there have been some changes. A new fleet of gas carts has arrived and they no longer have the GPS. A new 200 person pavillion is now available for outings. And, the rates have been reduced but the course is still fantastic. Get up there soon to enjoy the fall colors. 
7/18/2001Waggle.com ventured out to Whitetail to check out this new Rick Robbins designed course. What a treat to play! This course is one of those that is challenging enough, yet forgiving enough for players of all levels to enjoy. Add the beautiful scenery, superb conditions and friendly and helpful staff and what more do you need? The GPS system on the carts and the ability to take the carts in the fairway make it that more attractive. The course itself requires some thought off the tees as many holes have hazards, which cross the fairway just about where you were planning to hit your drive. Fortunately, most fairways are generous and you have plenty of area for mis-hits. The natural grass areas and several ponds will have to be avoided but read the Waggle.com Players Guide on the Whitetail page and you’ll know where to play’em. The Waggle guys give Whitetail “Four thumbs up”! Go ahead and make the drive - you'll be glad that you did. (Final bonus - this course is not yet rated - so if you shoot well it won't bring down your handicap 🙂 Bogeyman/Lefty
