Sunset Golf Course is a multi-faceted facility overlooking Harrisburg International Airport and the Susquehanna River.
A recently-renovated and expanded clubhouse welcomes public golfers to this18-hole championship-style layout. A new drainage has been installed at the course, located high atop Sunset Drive off Geyers Church Road in Middletown, and fairway and greenside bunkers have been upgraded.
The average to large-sized greens are meticulously manicured by the maintenance crew, giving even the higher handicapped golfer an easy read and true roll to the cup. Whether before or after play, enjoy a meal on the deck or in the dining room at Sunset Grill providing breakfast, lunch and dinner menus as well as a variety of draft beers. New lockerroom facilities are available in the lower level of the clubhouse that also houses a full-line pro shop and a social hall available for private rental.
Highlighting the par-70 layout is its signature10th hole. The 345-yard, par-4 is one of five dogleg-right holes on the course. A large vertical drop from the tee box to a narrow tree-lined fairway gives golfers a variety of clubs with which to begin their back nine. (view photos)
The front nine includes three par-3s and back-to-back par-5s on Nos. 6 and 7, both of which are slight dogleg-right holes. Only the starting hole provides a dogleg-left on the front nine while Nos. 12 and 17, both par-4s, offer the right-to-left flight on the back nine. The par-5 16th and the par-4 18th are the only dogleg-right holes on the back nine.
Water comes into play on four holes throughout the course, most notably protecting the left side of holes No. 12 and 16. Most of the 36 greenside bunkers protect the front nine while there are also a few strategically-placed fairway bunkers.
Whether it's the competitive fire or a relaxing social day that beckons, you can find either one right here at beautiful Sunset Golf Course.
