Founded in 1896, the Country Club of Scranton appointed Walter Travis to lay out an 18-hole course for the membership in 1927. Sixty years then passed before Michael Hurdzan was called in to add another 9-hole circuit in 1988, expanding the club’s golf offering to 27 holes.

Set out within a generous 384-acre tract of land, the three nines (named Pines, Willows and Falls) can be configured into three different 18-hole layouts, with the Pines and Willows combination forming the original Old course.

A number of new millennium developments have taken place to improve the golf facility, including the installation of a new irrigation system in 2004 and the introduction of new drainage on the Old course greens in 2009.

Designer Tom Marzolf (former President of the American Society of Golf Course Architects) then completed a course renovation program in 2012, which resulted in improved drainage throughout the property, the removal of undesired grass species from fairway fringes and the construction of new green complexes and bunkers on the Old course.

Travis loved the New York City social and sporting scene. Apart from hunting and fishing trips he was also partial to a Ricoro Corona cigar, a dram or two of Old Crow whiskey, and evenings playing poker.
