Water Gap Golf and Country Club
Until the early 1940's Water Gap Country Club was the famed as Wolf Hollow Country Club - birthplace of the golf's Eastern Open. The course today is the same well-groomed test that confronted golfing greats of the Golden Era of Golf. Golfers now tread in the footsteps of such immortals as Walter Hagen, Johnny Farrell, Gene Sarazen, MacDonald Smith, Wille MacFarland, and Leo Diegel.
Today's Water Gap Country Club retains much of the nostalgia of the Wolf Hollow era. From the historic charm of the clubhouse and grounds to the links design of Scottish architect Robert White, Water Gap Country Club retains a special bond to the past.

Water Gap Country Club's number 4 hole (formerly number 12 during the Wolf Hollow years) is famed as "Hagen's Folly". It is remembered that Walter Hagen, arguably the best golfer of his era, scored a disastrous nine on this hole during a major tournament. This par 3, 120 yard hole, with elevated green and tee, remains just as hazardous to today's golfer.
