Fun Fact

Knoebels Three Ponds Golf Club has been part of the Amusement Resort since 2007. Designed by Steven Jepko, Sr., the Three Ponds Golf Club opened its doors in 1967 as a 9 hole facility built on farmland owned by the Jepko Family. At that time, the 9 hole course consisted of “Three Ponds”. In 1972, the Jepko’s acquired more land and built an additional 9 holes to make it an 18 hole course. To date, the original front nine still maintain those original three ponds.
