Check-in is on Friday, 12-8pm, at Group Campsite #1, in the main lodge. Sign in at the main lodge before proceeding to your cabins. It is strongly recommended that you arrive before sundown. Picking a cabin and situating your belongings will be tough without proper lighting.

Players’ Village:

• Lodging for this event is included in your registration fee. We have reserved a group campsite for the weekend. Every team will be provided their own cabin. The cabins are a mix-bag of goodies. All cabins have four walls and a door, and they all sleep 4 or more people. Some of the cabins have fireplaces and some of them have electricity. They will protect you from wind and rain, but they are not climate controlled. Cabins are issued on a “first come-first served” basis.

• Every player will be responsible for providing his/her own bedding. There are raised bunks off of the floor, however; there are no mattresses, sheets or pillows. Helpful Hint: Bring cardboard to lie over the bunk springs.

• There are community bathrooms with showers.

Note: Players are encouraged to invite friends and family to attend. Food and lodging is reserved for players, coaches, and event staff only.


• Five meals are included with your registration as well as refreshments Friday night at the players meeting. We will be serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner on Saturday. On Sunday we serve breakfast and lunch only.

• All meals will be served in the main lodge at the Players’ Village.

Note: Please contact the tournament director if you have dietary restrictions.


• There will be CTP prizes for all four rounds.

• There will be a distance competition Friday night. It is glow and we will provide the discs.

• There will be a putting competition Saturday night, at the Players’ Party.


French Creek was once home to two permanent 18’s: Doggie Woods (1987) and Pleasure Mountain (1989). These were the first two courses in the Pennsylvania State Park system. Unfortunately, because of environmental issues related to the lake, the park removed both courses and has allowed the development of a third course.

I can tell you from experience, this course will challenge players at any skill level. Each hole has two permanent baskets: a silver layout (4600’) and a gold layout (8,200’). Both offer a combination of elevation and tightly wooded fairways. We would like to give special thanks to Skeeter Hoffman, and the Stonerville Dead Dogs, for all of the hard work and dedication that they have put into this course.
