Downingtown Golf Club
This place has slipped
Downingtown used to be one of my favorite golf courses. I arrived and there was no starter. I had to find a cart to take out, and ended up having to clean someone's used cart out. Because there was no starter, the group I was supposed to be paired up with went out as a threesome ahead of a twosome, who declined to let me play with them. Thankfully, thunder started and the twosome left, and I skipped a hole to pass the threesome. The greens were somewhat slow, and were peppered with ballmarks. Perhaps because they overcharge for them in the pro shop, but I digress..... The course is somewhat short , but ALOT of fun to play. Bunkers were bare and muddy, but with the abundance of rain, that can be forgiven. Overall, I would suggest not trying to get out here for a quick round, or within a day of a heavy rain. Still a good track, but nothing like it's past glory.

Great Value on Golf Now!
Ordinarily a little out of my budget. Great deal on GolfNow.

Nice and easy
Nice course with parallel holes, allows good scoring if you hit straight.

Awesome Traditional Course
I played at Dowingtown CC again because I'd enjoyed it so much the first time I'd played it (about 18 months ago). I played poorly on the front 9 -- the easier 9 -- but did great on the back 9 -- playing bogey golf. I enjoyed the traditional look, small greens, and fast greens, which brought me back for a repeat visit. No interactions with the grounds crew, staff, or halfway house, but I played at the crack of dawn. Course was in great condition, and the greens were lightning quick (compared to the last course I'd played down in VA the week before). Glad that I could walk the layout; made for a much more enjoyable experience, and $20 less expensive than advertised on Golf Now. I'll definitely play Downingtown CC again!

I played the back 9 in just over 2 hours. Pace of play was an issue, and there were no rangers out to keep pace of play going. The course itself was in decent shape, but there were a few downers. Sand traps in areas needed more sand - I hit two shots where the ball was sitting on hardpan in the middle of a sand trap. Also, the holes hadn't been cut for a while and were shaggy on the edges. On the positive side, the fairways were green and tee boxes were in good shape. The holes aren't real imaginative, but the par 3's were fun. Play the tips at this course.

Great challenging layout. Pricey when not using golf now. Good condition except bunkers need sand badly. Definitely worth a look otherwise.

way too expensive
Not a gem of a course for the green fees charged. Pace of play is slow
