In 1920, 16 business leaders from Bethlehem Steel acquired 205 acres of farmland lying along the Saucon Creek to establish a family-oriented country club. Saucon Valley Country Club has evolved gracefully over the past 100 years. The Club leadership has been guided by a genuine concern for the recreational aspirations of its members striving for excellence in golf, racquet sports and swimming.
Today, the Club encompasses over 850 acres and is home to 60 holes of golf with three championship courses, a 6-hole Short Course, and a Practice Facility. The Old, Grace, and Weyhill Courses have each been ranked in the Top 100 golf courses in the country. The Racquets and Fitness Department offers 14 outdoor courts, three indoor courts, platform tennis, squash and a fully-equipped Fitness Center. SVCC also offers 10 dining venues, four swimming pools, fly-fishing, and a 13-bedroom 18th century Guest House for overnight lodging.
Renowned golf course architect Herbert Strong designed the original 18-hole Saucon Course, later becoming the Old Course, and a second 18-hole course, the William and David Gordon-designed Grace Course, was completed in 1957. The Weyhill Course was completed in 1968 and also designed by William and David Gordon.
Through eight major United States Golf Association events, including the upcoming 2022 U.S. Senior Open Championship, Saucon Valley Country Club has attained enduring national stature. The extreme pride and sense of obligation to preserve Saucon traditions and high standards of excellence still pervade the membership today. Saucon Valley Country Club offers a timeless retreat from the everyday hustle and bustle for the entire family to enjoy new experiences and create memories.
