Philipsburg Elks Lodge & Country Club 



The FLOG course or GOLF backwards is a course you play backwards,green (near the green) to tee.  We have orange tees set up to play from.This is available for golf members to come out when they want as long as you stay off the greens at all times.  Even if you hit a ball on a green please let it there. Any damage done to the greens will be noticeable into late Spring / early Summer. Who knows maybe we will catch some warm Winter days and I will send out an email for a FLOG skins game or better ball event.

     The Philipsburg Elks Lodge & C.C., located in Philipsburg, PA, is a short 20 minute drive from State College, PA. The course was designed by Alexander H. Findlay, "The Father of American Golf", and opened in 1922.  Mr. Findlay also designed such local courses as Clinton CC (1910), Centre Hills CC (1921), Curwensville CC (1924) and Tyrone GC (1925). 

     The Philipsburg Elks Lodge & C.C. is a nine hole USGA course measuring only 5600 yards but has many challenges that make up for its short length.  The course has small, undulating, quick greens that puts a premium on the approach shot.  The greens are surrounded by elevation changes, mounds and 29 total bunkers.  The fairways are contoured so you are not left with many level lies.  The course also features different sets of tees from front to back changing the par on several holes.
