Wyncote Golf Club
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.

Links style course
Links style course through windy PA farmland.
Well designed & maintained.
If you go past the 1st cut of rough, you're into very thick fescue & a probable lost ball.

Great Course - Afternoon rate is Perfect
Tee off on time on a Sunday afternoon - Excellent.
Course was in fantastic shape. Great challenge.
Just wish it was closer to home, I would play it more often.
Bring an extra sleeve of balls.

Terrific Golf Course
I used to live/work in Philly (2004-2007) and always enjoyed playing here. I was in PA for the weekend, and managed to get out at four old favorites: Wyncote, Iron Valley, Glen Mills, and Turtle Creek. I am glad that I started with Wyncote, as it is still a terrific golf course, very scenic, fairly priced, in great condition, with solid routing. Weather was good, as was pace of play. Highly recommended for anyone in Baltimore-Harrisburg-Philadelphia triangle.
