MERCERSBURG, PA. - Whitetail Resort and its parent company, Snow Time Inc., are purchasing a golf course for $3.75 million to realize the resort's original master plan calling for year-round outdoor recreation.
The 250-acre Whitetail Golf Resort shared the "Whitetail" name since opening in 2000 but retained separate ownership until now.
A hotel and conference center are planned on the portion of the course across from the clubhouse, according to Don MacAskill, president of Whitetail Resort.
The resort's master plan developed in the late 1980s included the ski facilities, golf course and hotel and conference center. Yet, the Whitetail Resort, which opened in 1991 on Blairs Valley Road in Montgomery Township, had only operated with skiing, snowboarding, snow tubing and fly fishing.
"Now we saw this opportunity, with the golf course for sale, to draw the project back together. I think there's a lot of opportunities to share resources," MacAskill said.
