Sunnehanna Country Club, The golf course at Sunnehanna, is a perched on a hilltop and meanders 360 degrees around the clubhouse. The greens are small, bunkered, requiring accurate iron play. Fairway bunkers generally are only on one side of the fairway. Like many golf courses designed in the early 1920's, the course has evolved over time. Built prior to the advent of central watering systems, Sunnehanna was designed to play bump and run shots. The course when playing as designed, plays hard and fast with shots meant to be played short of the greens. This accounts for the open entrance to the greens. The course was relatively free of trees. The Sunnehanna Amateur was inaugurated in July 1954. The tournament was the first country club sponsored 72-hole stroke play competition for amateurs in the United States. The rapidly growing professional tour was strictly 72 holes of stroke play, with the one exception being the annual match play championship of the National Professional Golf Association (PGA). The country club has a clubhouse and pro shop, and is located in Johnstown, Pa.
