Macoby Run Golf Course – a gem from the golf days of yore where a farmer decided to stop his farming operation and trade in crop seed for bent grass.

If you would take yourself back 75 years, Macoby Run was an operating farm of crops and cattle. The farm was owned and operated by Floyd Hersh and his family who moved to the property in 1919. As farmers found it increasingly difficult to provide for their families, Floyd made the decision in 1964 to make his living in the construction industry. Farming became his hobby.

aboutus1One hobby Floyd never boasted about much was his love of golf. At the time golf was considered a sport only for the elite and not many played the game. So Floyd never boasted much of his dream to one day turn his own farm into an 18 hole golf course. As a farmer, Floyd had the opportunity to travel the surrounding counties and inspect various farm properties. During the 1960’s he began to see farms being plowed into fairways and not crops. It wasn’t until nearly 30 years later that Floyd would see that very scenario at his own farm.

Through nothing but hard work and determination Floyd’s dream finally became a reality in 1990. Macoby Run Golf Course opened 9 holes in September of 1990. A few months later the round was increased to 12 holes and by Spring of 1991 the full 18 hole golf course was born.
