Downingtown Golf Club
looked good for fall
It was a beautiful day so it was busy for a Tue afternoon so pace was a little slow for my liking. They were doing some work on the course but otherwise was in good shape for late fall.

Could be better
Not worth what they are charging. The bunkers were not raked, and they are a lot of them .Greens needed to be blown of leaves and twigs

Nice course that's overpriced
Downingtown Country club is in good conditions. The prices without golfnow.com are seriously way overpriced . $80 rates. Really? That's ridiculous , it should be $35 weekdays and $50 weekends.
Honestly whoever is paying those rates, you are the reason why they continue to charge those rates. Stop paying such rates for one season and watch them come to reality and charge better rates.
Till then they will keep charging those Wall Street rates. This is downingtown not manhattan

Tough Greens, Creative Design
I don't know much about George Fazio, but he put together a truly entertaining and challenging course here. Greens are large an undulating with many options for pin placements. The greens are sneaky fast with challenging reads. Course is not long and has more than a few non-driver holes, but has enough long holes to keep the grip it and rip guys happy, If this was a private club I would join it. I always walk off wanting another crack at it.

Great course for the money
The course is in excellent condition and has the feel of an old country club. Very private and landscaping throughout the course is very well kept. The course is not long but shorter holes are offset by challenging greens and pin placements. Greens are firm, fast, and plenty of slope. Greens are pro difficulty.

First time at course
Just moved to Philly and this is the first course I played in the area. Very friendly staff course was in very good condition. Not overly long but fairly tight on a number of holes.
Would definitely go back.

Good time, good play
The one negative, a couple of the bunkers were muddy, other then that it was crowded, but finished in 4 hours, and 20 minutes, couple of holes we had 2-5 minutes wait

Best public course around
I belong to 4 private clubs and this course is still in my top 5 public courses. The George Fazio design is excellent with no two holes the same. Excellent walking course, very challenging but fair. Staff there are awesome and so is the food. You must have their hot dog, the best!
