Inniscrone Golf Club
Great Layout, Worth The Trip
This is one of those kind of courses you want to put on your list of must play. You can see why it was in the Top 100 modern designs.
It does play longer than it says on the card. If you are a shorter hitter I recommend 'teeing it forward' to enjoy the round. There are generous fairways but positioning is important for your next shot. The traps are massive and deep .... what you think may be a short shot greenside becomes a much longer skill shot.
The club staff was awesome and very welcoming. It's a bit out of the way in the corner of southeast PA but very much worth the ride.

First Time Played
Course knowledge is necessary on this course. If its your first time playing I highly recommend having a mobile app to help assist in layout. Very tricky course with a lot of angled fairways and meticulous shots required. Shorter but more challenging of the courses I've played recently.

much to like here
Inniscrone is a course that tests every club in the bag.. I've played here over the past few years and its one of the best values around.. The only thing holding it back from a 5 star rating from me, is that the tee boxes are chewed up on a few holes and the greens have some ball marks in them. Its a shame that on such nice greens people do not care to fix their marks.. You must keep your ball below the hole on approaches at this course as there are some real big slopes in a few greens. If you can make par at holes 4, 6, 12 and 17...you are almost tour ready... Those are some of the toughest par 4s that exist anywhere.. I will play here a few more times this year for sure..

Very much enjoyed my round, the front nine is a more open less challenging layout than the back side. The greens were rolling very true and not too fast. The tee boxes need some work, but over all a good course that makes you use all your clubs.

excellent daily fee, great value
Very good design, great condition, challenging. They couldnt retain the membership to stay private, and that is to our benefit. It is definitely out of the way, and there are other excellent courses nearby, wyncote,broad run, glen mills, etc. It would be a must play if closer to phila but for what it is, particularly with promotional offers, there is not a better value in the area. Worth the hour plus drive for me on a weekend. You will not be disappointed but dont try getting here during rush hours.

Great course IMO. Must drive your ball well ( reasonably long & reasonably straight). Greens are nice and true, (Please fix your ball mark). Ball placement into the green is necessary to score. The ability to shape your shot with your irons would be a plus at this course. Rough is penal, but the fairways are generous enough. If your hitting out of the rough, your ball will not spin and therfore the shot must be played accordingly. There are places on the course you cannot be if you expect to score. You wiil not be able to recover depending upon pin placement. Only had an issue with 1 hole. Its a downhill par 3 that plays about 110 on the card, but is a 75 yard shot. The shot is made tough with a narrow green. Over is dead and the front of the green is mounded to roll front to back. Ugh. Course is a great challenge for the better player. For higher handicappers, choosing the set of tees in line with your ability will dictate your enjoyment. Will definitely return. Play well! Cya.
