Designed by Rees Jones, Broad Run Golfer's Club boasts one of the best layouts in the area. The course sprawls across over 370 acres of rolling hills countryside. The dramatic elevations are definitely not something you would expect from a golf course that is conveniently situated so close to downtown Philadelphia. The elevated tees feel as though they're in the clouds and mature trees frame most of the holes. There are hazards lurking throughout the golf course including swampy marshlands and tall, dense grasses that are all just waiting to swallow errant shots. It is a challenging layout no doubt but it is made more player friendly with generous fairways and Jones was also light on the bunkering. One of the most difficult and scenic holes is the par-5 15th. This hole plays uphill, featuring a blind tee shot to a plateau green surrounded by trees.

Too pricey for winter conditions

I've played Broad Run many times and it's a nicely maintained and challenging public course. But I was very disappointed paying a premium winter season price for a course with sand traps under repair and temporary tee box locations. It was cart path only. too. It's understandable to have these course conditions during the winter season, but the price should be lowered due to the greatly diminished golf experience.

Challenging round of golf

A challenging course with tough greens - you’ll be rewarded by staying in the fairways. Friendly staff and the course is in good shape. The bar is a must in the patio !

Nice layout. What little staff there was were friendly enough, but it’s understaffed to be sure. Course is in good condition apart from the tee boxes, which were dreadful.

Brutal pace of play

Early morning Saturday round, course was already 10-15 mins behind at the first tee. Well over 5 hour round, should not happen when paying $100+ for a round. Course itself is still awesome, one of my favorites.
