Quotable "I worked really hard on my game this year. I still feel like I've got some stuff I need to work on, but to see the fruits of that labor is very satisfying. To play the last 15 holes that well under the conditions was really exciting and gratifying.”
 -- Jim Furyk
Fast Fact This is the 100-year anniversary of the club's Old Course. While Saucon Valley was founded in 1920, the Old Course did not open until two years later. Saucon's 18-hole Grace Course opened in 1958 and the Weyhill Course opened in 1968.
