The same rolling hills that provided the backdrop for the Civil War's bloodiest battle today make for a peaceful golf outing that can be as relaxed or as challenging as you like! The Doubleday Inn Bed & Breakfast is situated directly on the Gettysburg Battlefield and within easy driving distance to several award winning public golf courses. Courses are generally uncrowded but confirmed tee times are always a good suggestion:

·         The Links at Gettysburg   A very scenic upscale course featuring lakes, streams, and red rock canyons about 6 miles south of Gettysburg.
·         Penn National  Two highly rated courses, one featuring traditional tree-lined fairways; the other, a classic link-style course with fabulous mountain views.  About 20 miles west of Gettysburg in a golf community.
·         The Bridges Golf Club  Carved into the rolling hills among woodlands and wetlands is this challenging layout, one of the best in the area.  Located about 15 miles east of Gettysburg.
·         Carroll Valley Golf Club  About 8 miles from Gettysburg at the Carroll Valley Resort.  This course is wedged beautifully into a narrow valley surrounded by woodlands, especially beautiful in the fall.  It is the least expensive of those mentioned
