golf course located along Jacoby Road, approximately ½

from Allentown and a 15 minute drive from Quakertown.
Tumblebrook offers two sets of tees and can be played as an 18-hole
course - white tees for the front, yellow for the back. The wide
fairways and open space minimize lost balls, which makes Tumblebrook
a great course for kids and beginners. More experienced players
will be challenged by the course's small, domed greens.
Tumblebrook was designed by the legendary Donald J. Ross, widely
considered the most prolific and successful golf course designer
of all time. Ross was noted for his ability to create holes that
were perfectly integrated into the landscape. His design philosophy
stressed using what nature provided rather than wholesale remodeling
of topography. By the time Ross retired, he had created over 400
new golf courses in the United States including such masterpieces
as Pinehurst, Seminole, Inverness, Oak Hill and Congressional.
