Buck Hill Falls is home to a classic Donald Ross golf course. Ross, a native of Dornoch, Scotland, was commissioned to design the Buck Hill Falls’ White and Blue nines, which were first opened in 1922. They remain a classic example of the distinct Donald Ross architectural style.

Bradley Klein, author of, Discovering Donald Ross: The Architect and His Golf Courses, will speak at Buck Hill as part of the Foxhowe Association’s summer lecture series on the evening of July 2.

Klein is a senior writer for Golf Channel, Golf Week, and Golfadvisor.com, as well as a renowned historian on golf course architecture. He is one of the foremost authorities on Donald Ross’ unique designs and architectural principles.

Donald Ross designed or remodeled more than 400 golf courses during his prolific career, including the award-winning Buck Hill Golf Club. Bradley Klein writes, “A lot of people who play golf today know the name of Donald Ross, but not enough of them are aware of the effect this modest and unassuming man had and continues to have on the game.”

This special event at the Tennis Tea in Buck Hill is sponsored by the Foxhowe Association. There will be a cash bar available. Cocktail hour begins at 5:15pm, presentation at 6pm at 108 Tennis Drive, Buck Hill Falls, PA 18323. This free event is open to the public.
