Macoby Run Golf Course is thrilled to be featured as a part of the Summer Travel campaign for Valley Forge and Montgomery County, Pennsylvania! The Valley Forge Tourism and Convention Board unveiled a new commercial for the campaign on May 16th during their Travel Rally Day. Here is what they had to say about the advertisement:
“The day’s theme – Faces of Travel – fit in perfectly with our new commercial that highlights those working behind the scenes to create the visitor experience in Montgomery County. The commercial will play locally on 6abc, but the big push is for out-of-market leisure travelers. It will air in the New York, Washington, D.C., and Baltimore markets between now and the end of summer.”
You can view the new commercial below. We could not possibly be more excited to be featured in this commercial!
Thank you to the Valley Forge Tourism and Convention Board for choosing us to be included in their campaign!
Nestled in upper Montgomery County is where a farmer from days of old realized his dream of trading in the plows for greens mowers and field corn for bent grass.
If you would take yourself back 75 years, Macoby Run was an operating farm of crops and cattle. It was owned and operated by Floyd Hersh and his family who moved to the property in 1919. As farmers found it increasingly difficult to provide for their families, Floyd made the decision in 1964 to make his living in the construction industry and farming became his hobby.
One hobby Floyd never boasted about much was his love of golf. At the time golf was considered a sport only for the elite and not many played the game. As a farmer, Floyd had the opportunity to travel the surrounding counties and inspect various land properties. During the 1960’s he began to see farms yielding fairways instead of crops. It wasn’t until nearly 30 years later that he would turn that hobby into his livelihood.
Through nothing but hard work and determination Floyd’s dream finally became a reality in 1990. Macoby Run Golf Course opened 9 holes in September of 1990. A few months later the round was increased to 12 holes and by Spring of 1991 the full 18 hole golf course was born.
Floyd Hersh passed away in September of 2000 but his family still resides on the homestead, his construction company still operates at its’ original location and his family continues his dream of owning and operating the 18 hole golf course which was his brainchild.
Utilizing the naturally rolling terrain and woods of upper Montgomery County farm country, Macoby Run Golf Course offers an excellent variety of challenges to compliment the breathtaking vistas you will experience throughout your round. The front 9 holes have 138′ of elevation change with hills and trees to keep you on top of your game. The back 9 holes offer a bit of a reprieve with slightly less hilly and more open terrain. No two greens are the same and the two-tier green on #3 will challenge the truest putting skills.
Our golf staff is courteous, professional and eager to help you have the best experience possible while you enjoy your country retreat. Macoby Run is kept in pristine condition with country club quality greens maintained by our grounds crew for over 20 years. The pavilion and Wetlands Bar & Restaurant allow you to enjoy your golf tournament and post golf activities in one location.
Whether you’re a first time golfer or a seasoned pro, a family or a business outing, Macoby Run has something for everyone. Let us entertain you and yours at Macoby Run where fun, family and friends are par for the course.
