 Club History 
 
 

With the anticipation of the growth around the Penn State University, investors Phil Sieg and Alex Gregory, Sr. combined resources in 1968 to begin the development of lands just a few miles west of the campus. Set in the white pine cover hills, they named this community "Toftrees", a Bavarian term meaning home amongst the trees. The endeavor began with nine holes of golf and a modest number of apartments and homes. By 1971, the project had grown in to a remote community of single family homes, cluster homes, condominiums, six apartment complexes and a 100+ room hotel/resort with full conference facilities. The Edmund Ault design course was also a complete 18 holes by the end of the year.

Over the next 19 golf seasons, the course earned the respect of golfers throughout the mid-Atlantic region, and became the host to the PA Golf Association Better-Ball Championship. During this time, the two owners parted ways, and Alex Gregory, Sr. retained ownership of the Resort and Golf Club. In 1990, he partnered with Marriott Golf and became a part of prestigious network of golf clubs managed by the hotel giant. After the 1999 season, the relationship with Marriott Golf ended, and a few years later the property was sold to a local partnership. This partnership of investors, businessmen and developers recognized the untapped potential of both the golf course and the untouched land surrounding the front nine. Guided by S & A Homes and Shaner Corp., Toftrees is now entering the next phase in growth, nearly 40 years after itís conception.

This new dedication to the property marked a renaissance for the golf course. The influx of capital has allowed Toftrees to improve turf conditions and manicure the putting surfaces to meet the highest standards. Annual, winter tree removal and forest beautification programs are ongoing, plus critical improvements to bunkers, tees, collars and approaches offer members and guests a challenging, but classic golf experience.
