The Glendorn Story
May 31, 2016
As an extension to their robust activities list, The Lodge at Glendorn—an idyllic 1500-acre property, bordering the Allegheny National Forest in nature-rich northwestern Pennsylvania—offers its guests temporary access to The Pennhills Club, a membership golf course designed by Walter J. Travis during the 1920s.
This historic golf course features lush greenery and gorgeous backdrops of the nearby hillsides from each hole. Alternatively, dad can bring out his best driver and putter at Pine Acres Country Club, a beautiful 18-hole championship course with a 136 slope rating, tucked away in the middle of the forest. Both courses are only 20 minutes from Glendorn, with a complimentary return car service provided by the lodge. Once back from the course, dads who have a natural love for adventure and wildlife likely won’t want to leave Glendorn. Whether up for fly-fishing, trap or skeet shooting, hiking or biking on 18 miles of trails, dads have multiple options to satiate their appetite for outdoor pursuits. Add in palate-pleasing meals at our award-winning member of Relais & Châteaux, recently lauded as 2016 Orvis ‘Fly-Fishing Lodge of the Year’, and it won’t take much to convince dad to rebook for the whole family next year. With 16 comfortable cabin and main lodge accommodations, and warm and friendly staff to cater to a variety of needs, Glendorn quickly feels like ‘home’ for families of all ages and stages.
