Scotland Run Golf Club is conveniently located less than a half hour from downtown Philadelphia and only 45 minutes from Atlantic City. It has been voted the top golf course in the Philadelphia Region and it's also ranked in Golf World's Top 50 Public Courses in the country. The layout is routed through and around an old sand quarry, providing a unique mix of wooded, quarry, and links-style holes. The distinctive landscape has unique features including expansive waste areas and imposing cliffs that were deftly incorporated into the design. The golf course is wide open, which means it's at the mercy of the prevailing winds. Scotland Run Golf Club is a tough but fair test where you'll face forced carries, water hazards, and strategically placed bunkers. On mornings where the fog rolls off of the hills, for a split second you might think you're at St. Andrews.

Top Notch

Everything about the course worked out perfectly. The starter let us out early and we had no one in front of us or behind us all day. Weather was a little cloudy but even with a lot of rain the night before the course played well. Looking forward to going back,

Great Course

First time playing, good layout. Very relaxing place to play, and was surprised that there were no pestering bugs.

Amazing course, sand bunkers very easy to get out of. Greens were almost true roll. Will definitely be back soon.

Staff are very pleasant and helpful. It’s nice to see people that are happy to be there and do a great job.

Challenging, yet playable

Scotland Run has a well conditioned layout that has lots of character. No two holes are alike. Greens were difficult without being impossible. Fun course... will be back.

Scotland Run

Good track for the money and well maintained. Staff was super friendly. Only gripe would be somewhat insane pin locations throughout most of the course. Plays long from the tips but a good challenge just wish they had some more well thought out pin placements as on some holes birdie was almost impossible.

Really great layout, but conditions could be better

Great course. Really nice starter. Very pretty clubhouse. The greens were punched so I’m sure they weren’t their normal speed or smoothness. They were slooow and bumpy. The fairways and tees were ok not great. In the current condition, it is a little pricey, but it is a really cool layout with many interesting holes.

Overall a great experience.
