Wyncote Golf Club
The course was in fantastic condition. The layout is very good. I definitely will play again.

I always enjoy playing Wyncote - it is a tremendous challenge and test of a player's skill. Upon this visit I was disappointed to see the sand-trap rakes attached to each cart. Only problem is people are not carrying the rake with them when their ball is in the trap. So while I found the sand in the traps an improvement over prior year visits, the sandraps themselves were unraked and discheveled.

One of my local favorites
A great choice for upscale public course golf in SE PA. Links style layout where the wind comes into play. The beautiful and quiet countryside is as much a draw for me as the great layout .

Can't beat it.
They ran a special the entire day for $25. There is not another course around for 30 miles that's done that, that I know of. We played in the afternoon 4:00 the weather and course were fantastic. Greens were fairly fast and true. I live in Pa. and play courses in Pa., Md., and De. This is one of the best around. If you want to play a nice course try this one, you won't be dissapointed, just practice up on your sidehill lies.

Not a tricked up hole on the course. Greens were excellent. I would highly recommend this course. We drive over an hour to play it. Great mid-point between Philly and Charm City for friends to get together on an outstanding track. Rivals Bulle Rock for 1/3 the price.

Very entertaining course.
Liked everything about this course BUT the whole rake thing. No body seemed to mention this. You see, instead of having rakes at the bunkers, they have them in the carts. What ends up happening is you either forget to take it with you or forget it in the bunker when you're done (guilty). The end result is that most the time the bunkers don't seemed to be raked from there previous inhabitant. Hey, I was only in twice. It's not like I was living there. No wind on our day.

Go Play it!
Wyncote is in great condition right now. The greens are rolling nice and the fescue is high and penal (don't bother looking). The first cut of rough is not too high; just right really. Tee it forward if its windy - as it usually is at Wyncote.
I also have to note that I lost my rangefinder on the course. The staff was very helpful about that and a patron turned it in. I would have liked to thank that patron in person.

Worth the trip
This was my second time in two years. It is a great layout. Very few people out on a 90 degree plus day. Tee boxes are a little out of shape. Fairways were superb. Greens are slow - not complaining. Great rates for the afternoon golfer. Check it out.
