Wyncote Golf Club
what a great track,what a great test!
what more needs to be said about the number 5 course in the state! it's fantastic! if you want a true links course, this is it!!! including the winds. you will want to keep the ball low. my buddy and I stayed for dinner and it was AMAZING!!! I strongly suggest the chicken and rock shrimp scampi!
I will be back soon even though I live 50 miles away!

Country Club greens at a public course. Fairways and tee boxes were pristine. Was first off and played 18 in a little over two hours. Even though the course is a 50 minute drive from my home, I could play this course every week.

Impressed on 1st visit
The Staff was courteous & helpful, but understaffed. There was NO starter, cart man, or cart with drinks on a warm Saturday afternoon in late September.
The course conditions were very good & was very challenging. But the ONLY markers were from 150yds. & few other markers for distance to the green.
The pace of play could have been faster if more heads were marked or more visible 200, 150, & 100 yd.marking were available
Overall a pleasant experience

Bring extra balls
Had a nice day and an early tee time so pace of play was no issue. Lower handicap golfers will have less trouble but it is a penal course if you spray the ball. You can get lost in the rough and long overgrowth quite easy so take less club and keep it straight. It rewards good shots and bruises your ego with the shots that go slightly astray.

Hidden Gem in the Country
The course was in excellent condition with well manicured fairways. Fair but challenging course that can prove to be a little unforgiving if you hit the ball of course. The staff was incredibly friendly from the pro shop staff to the restaurant staff. All in all this is an excellent course to play.

Worth the 70.00
One of the few courses worth what they charge. Greens were in great shape - pretty fast and smooth. It had rained a lot the day / night before, but the course for the most part was dry - wasn't even cart path only! It was hot & humid - but one thing about Wyncote is hat there is always a breeze. Course, imo, is definitely tougher than a 125 slope from the whites. Lot of high heather grass - don't miss the fairways by much, and bring extra balls!

This is a spectacular challenge tee to green. One of my favorites. I was one of the few out there, teed off at noon, finished at 3:30.

A Gem in the Burbs
I had not played Wyncote for about 10 years, I played it several times when it first opened. I was delighted!! It has aged very well, fairways are bentgrass and very soft, greens are in outstanding condition, the layout is wonderful, and the rough and grasslands are absolutely beautiful. You have to play this course carefully or you will loose lots of golf balls. If you concentrate, it will prove to be fair, but challenging.
