Birch Run was established in 1954 by Jim Stravino. The regulation length par 35 golf course has had only four owners since the opening. The current owner Bob Ketchner, purchased the club in March of 2022 from Danny and Greg Kaye, with hopes of continuing to provide the membership and guests with a place to play golf and socialize in a friendly environment.
The course is built in a very scenic location in the enchanted mountains of Cattaraugus County and is overseen by our Superintendent Grayson Cole. The undulating greens are tough to read and fast. There is a creek that comes into play on two holes, and it attracts any wayward golf balls. Well placed bunkers complete the layout to provide challenges around the greens. Players have the option of playing the White, Black, Yellow, or Red tees and this give the player a different approach and distance to each hole.
