Though not a long course, it has plenty of challenges for any golfer. It's location is also great being so close to the main line, Manayunk and Center City

Reviewed December 13, 2010

Great course, great club, affordable and convenient to city. Though short, still very challenging with small, quick, well guarded greens. As a longer than average hitter, skeptical at first, but handicap travels accurately. Regularly scheduled member events/outings, great comradery.
