Experience golf through the Hershey Country Club, opened in 1930, and ranked by Golf Digest as one of the top 50 resorts in the U.S. Join WCGA and other wonderful women of all golf skill levels for a weekend getaway at The Hotel Hershey, a four-star resort located just two hours from Washington, DC.  It is listed as an Historic Hotel of America.

Optional add-ons for WCGA or WCGA guests include access to the Spa at The Hotel Hershey, ranked top 100 best spas in the country and known affectionately as The Chocolate Spa. The resort also has an indoor pool and jacuzzi, fitness center, access to hiking trails, falconry, and complimentary valet parking.

While WCGA members may want to golf, your family would have preference/early access to Hershey Park. They would have free parking at the Park and can enter the theme park an hour early before the public. Hershey Park has rides, including roller coasters, a water park, zoo, and chocolate tour. Guests also receive complimentary admission to Hershey Story Museum, Hershey Gardens, and Chocolate World.

  • 2 night hotel accommodations at The Hotel Hershey and 18 holes at the private Hershey Country Club, home to two spectacular 18 hole courses.

Cost per person: Double occupancy $590/ Single occupancy $1,063

*As mentioned above, this WCGA negotiated price includes a room discount and a free round of 18 holes at the private Hershey Country Club. This is more than $200 savings. All resort guests have free valet parking and early access/additional hours at Hershey Park.

The resort also has cottages that may be of interest for WCGA members who are interested in making this a family getaway.
