Many Central PA Golf Courses utilize tenting to expand their revenue and service base during the pleasant weather of the spring, summer and early fall.  The events range from corporate golf outings to wedding receptions to non-profit fundraisers.  In some cases, the tent compliments the indoor space that is used year round, while in others, the tenting is the only banquet space of any size for the facility. 
Liberty Forge Golf Course Crew were busy today topping the tent adjacent to the Driving  Range on Lisburn Rd near Lower Allen Park.  This tent is used as outdoor seating for the people visiting the Range, as well as a niche business selling ice cream cones to the many surrounding housing developments in the 3 mile radius.

Liberty Forge recently entered into a contract with the Altland House to provide Banquet Catering at the facility previously known as The Wedge.  The well-appointed post and beam building at the top of the hill will accommodate up to 250 guests in the main room, and has smaller meeting rooms for up to 75.
Ben Hough runs the Hospitality arm of Atland House.  Under this division,  they also provide similar services at Ski Roundtop, Valencia Ballroom, York Expo Center, Majestic Theatre in Adams County, and Penn National Golf Course of Franklin County.   A grand opening is tentatively scheduled for May 15.  Bookings are handled at or  phone (717)848-8257.
Regents Glen’s annual tent setup also took place today by the 5 man EC crew.  EC provides a take down, cleaning, storage, and setup service for companies who prefer to make the capital investment in tenting rather than renting them for the season.
