One of the most popular sites at Capon throughout the years has been the golf course, which is filled with history. The open area on which the course now lies previously played host to exciting baseball games between Mountain House guests and local residents. However, when he acquired the property in the 1930’s Lou Austin envisioned a golf course set against the region’s natural beauty and landscape. Funds for the project were extremely hard to come by during the Depression. It was from the help of several women from the nearby community that the golf course was able to be finished and the long-standing honorable relationship between Capon and the local residents was formed.
Construction of The Golf Course at Capon Springs was completed on the nine-hole regulation course in 1936. The Prep course, a pitch and putt, par 3 course was later designed for beginners and became available for use during the 1954 season. Today, Capon guests continue to enjoy the lush, rolling hills and majestic mountain views around the well groomed course; the reality Lou Austin dreamed of many years ago.
