Buhl Farm Golf Course, formerly known as Buhland Golf Course,[1] located in Sharon, Pennsylvania, is the only free public golf course in the United States.[1][2][3][4] The 9-hole course is open from mid-April to November between 8 a.m. to sundown (closing times vary on season, so call ahead). The course is known for its flat greens, high rough and little room between each hole. It is also known for its easy layout including straight and wide fairways. The course is also known for its one artificial turf tee box, and eight other natural tee boxes. The course also includes a driving range and a First Tee center. It is run by the Buhl Farm Trust and generous donations from the public. The free course is called "Dum Dum" by the locals.[1][2]
