Rolling Green - Springfield, PA
Founded in 1926, Rolling Green is one of the Philadelphia area's top country clubs. The course was designed by William Flynn. Williams intent was to "... make it a shrine where the skill and ingenuity of the lover of the game could have full play."
As an architect, Flynn was a trail blazer in coining the term 'forward tees' instead of 'ladie's tees' to encourage play by both men and women. Flynn also designed a reversible course for John D Rockefeller Jr that could be played both forward and backward. This idea has since been revitalized by Tom Doak at Forest Dunes.
One of the course's unique features is the walking bridge that takes the golfer over a valley on the 250 yard par 3, 14th hole. Those taking a cart to navigate the course's hilly terrain won't get to experience this fantastic bridge. Just another reason to walk when you can!
