Originally named Cornwell’s Golf Club, Bensalem Country Club was established in 1960. It was a Private Golf Course which was designed by renowned architect William Gordon who received many awards for his outstanding work. Some of his works include Saucon Valley Country Club’s Grace Course, Philadelphia Country Club, Seaview Marriott Resort and Golf Pines Course.
Initially, the property was an English Estate that was bought by a farmer Gus Hansel. Mr. Hansel used the property as a farm until 1950, when he realized the need for more developments and attractions as the area around the farm got populated with residential and commercial buildings, and people pouring in for different activities. Mr. Hansel then employed the services of the Award Winning Architect, William F. Gordon to design 18 holes around his farmhouse and barn. The farm house still stands intact, and can be used as a beautiful backdrop for Wedding Pictures.
After the demise of Mr. Hansel, the property was purchased by Mr. Albert Bader. The club was opened as a semi-private in 1984 but became a Public Golf Course five years later in 1989. The golf course saw many great years as it served the public. To maintain and keep the beautiful 140 acre property intact and in good use, Mayor Joseph DiGirolamo and the Bensalem Council, worked unanimously to purchase the course under the condemnation rights and fair property value assessments. Finally, in the year 2006 they were able to do so, and hence the name Bensalem Township Country Club.
