Downingtown Golf Club
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!

Bring a group of friends
We played here yesterday as a group of 16,, The club was very friendly from the first phone call ( Dante & Ken ) to the last drink ( Ally ) The course was in good condition and clean. The heat was tough and the bugs were tougher !! the bunkers where alittle thin as far as sand goes but thats the only downside. Everyone liked the course and said they will play it again I will too. Great chicken wings.

Average course - Could be much better
I have played downingtown couple of times last year, it used to be good and well managed..but now it seems the environment has deteriorated over the period of time.
Some of the greens are true to the speed and some are not. Pace of play is horrid, no marshall to keep up the pace.. it seems they just focus on the bookings from the morning.. anyone playing after 4 or 5 they don't really bother to have them keep up the pace.
I had booked to play for 18 holes but when i reached there were no starters for the 5:40 timing.. kept waiting for some time and then learnt they have a league on the front-9..i have to go the back-9...
I will play this course again only if i get a good price deal and as it is near to my place ..but anything beyond $40 is pretty high..

Over priced for what you get
Way too expensive for the quality of the course.
No sand in bunkers, just dirt and mud, can't control the ball out of any bunker. Most tee boxes are chewed up. Greens are good and fairways are in good shape.
For $80+ dollars, you should get better quality. Mentioned to staff and got "I know, we've heard it before"

Fun Course with Interesting Greens
Downingtown is not a long course but offers a lot of fun. All the holes are unique and have plenty of character, especially the greens and strategic placement of bunkers, mounds, and water hazards. Definitely a shot makers course. If I pick a shortcoming, it would be the conditioning. For the money they charge, course conditions should be improved a notch or two.

This course brings variety and challenge.
Overall course is in great condition. Nice fairways and well kept greens. Good variety of holes. Bunkers are the only question. They are more like firm dirt than sand. Otherwise a very fun course to play.

The tee boxes, fairways and greens were in great shape but the lack of sand in the traps cheapened the overall quality of the course.
