Penn National was founded in 1968 by T.K. Nitterhouse and a group of local investors. It was the first 18-hole golf course in Franklin County, Pennsylvania. Today, Penn National boasts two 18-hole nationally recognized championship golf courses and a thriving active adult community of over 1,000 families, encompassing over 1,500 acres.
In 1995, T.K. retired, leaving the business in the capable hands of his son-in-law, Dennis Zimmerman, and daughter, Patti, who continue to work on building the late Mr. Nitterhouse’s dream.
