Detailed description

Kahkwa Club is a Private 18 hole golf course located in Erie, Pennsylvania.

Kahkwa Club traces its roots back to 1893 when it first opened as a social club. The Kahkwa golf course in its present day location opened in 1917. The course was designed by Donald Ross.

The Kahkwa Club golf course was built on rolling terrain and has greens that are sloped and fast. There are mature oak, maple, apple, and fir trees lining almost all the fairways. This club hosted the LPGA U.S. Open 1972. The only water hazard that comes into play is a man-made pond on hole #3, a 151-yard, par 3. The course is a typical Donald Ross design, with many mounds and sand bunkers. You must use a caddie if you choose to walk the course. Guests must be accompanied by a member in order to play this course.
