Tall Pines Players Club is open for Spring under new ownership. The 18-hole golf course is nestled within a picturesque landscape in Friendsville, PA, located in Susquehanna County.
The first 9 holes are ready for play now. Memberships come with new benefits like discounts on Carts, Tournament Green Fees and Golf Simulator fees.
Adam Diaz, owner of Diaz Companies in Kingsley, closed on the purchase of the course on March 15th.
Diaz and General Manager Steve Lathrop are already laying the groundwork for course and clubhouse improvements. Work will begin immediately on new cart paths and Pro-Shop expansion with a new entrance.
“I’m just a guy who likes to golf. When the opportunity to buy the golf course came up, it just fit with something I always wanted to do,” said Diaz. The plans for Tall Pines also fit with his commitment to support growth and possibility in the Northern Tier with positive and lasting impacts.
Lathrop is from Montrose and worked at Tall Pines when he was in college. Now, he’s back and making a career change. Both men say they just enjoy the game and welcome all players.
“It’s social, there’s comradery on the course but it’s also a game where you’re playing against yourself,” said Diaz.
Lathrop agrees adding “My favorite hole is 7. It’s a beautiful little elevated par 3. Number 11 is really nice too with a water fountain feature.”
Tall Pines Players Club offers individual and family memberships, league and tournament play, lessons and a golf simulator.
Tall Pines Player’s Club is located along Kinney Road off Route 267 in Friendsville. With 9-hole play open now as weather allows, they hope to open the full course by Sunday, March 24.
