Wyncote Golf Club
When the wind is blowing it's a true links experance

Wyncote is a stylish track that may have you thinking about golf on the other side of the pond.
I've played as a senior at off season rates for two of the past three weekends. Had no trouble setting things up. The rate at this time of year is unbeatable. Wyncote is a windswept piece of land with many attractive natural features (ponds, streams, fescue? (actually it's a sturdier grass than fescue so just avoid it). The opening hole and the closing hole are par fives; so are 9 and 10. For my money, #9 is the best of a nice grouping of three shot holes. The par 3s are spaced nicely through the round and the distances, at least from the blue tees vary substantially. On the par 4s, I prefer the short holes where driver might not be the play. I'd strongly suggest keeping approach shots below the hole. Maybe it's the grain. It certainly doesn't look that severely sloped but there's no such thing as "just past" from above the hole. Wyncote is an Ault & Clark design that's very well maintained. It's remarkable for it's use of gold, grey, and white grasses painting the landscape around the emerald grasses through the green. It's about a 45 minute drive from Philly International airport.

A great challenging layout with friendly staff
A must play! A challenging layout that puts a premium on accurate tee shots. Bring lots of balls if you spay it off the tee. Be prepared to manage the wind as well.

Very playable for seniors. Need to be able to use different clubs for position shots.

Great, even on a rainy day. A Must Play
Played Wyncote for the first time in years, and I was not disappointed. The course was in great shape. The tee-boxes and fairways had been aerated within the last month, but the course was still in great shape. The greens are one of the best in the area; read and rolled true, not too fast and not too slow. Even though it was a Scotland-like day, there was no puddling or mushy areas. The tall grasses that surround each hole make shot making a must. If you are not confident in your driver, go 3 wood, for sure. Only thing that could be better is to have divot mix with each cart. There were some divots that just fell apart and had to leave them unfilled.

Awesome Links-style course!
Overall just a great round of golf ay Wyncote! Played with my buddy as a two ball and finished in 4 hours. A must play when you're in the Oxford area!

It is hard to find a more scenic course anywhere near Philadelphia. It is a target course even though it doesn't look like a target course.
