Scotland Run Golf Club
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.

Great Course offering interesting and some very challenging holes.
Most par 5's were very challenging for me, a 16 handicap. I played green tees 5,554 yards. I walked in the park on the front
However the back side more challenging with waste areas through the green and wood pilings in bunkers are integral parts of the course with no relief. So many character building holes with small canyons and wild grasses in front of you on your drives!!! Great course!!! Want to go back!!!
True this is a very solid course with interesting holes and is usually in good to average condition. However, the course is soooo over priced as many courses of moderate quality design and conditions are.
Not a good value at all...
Outstanding track but with an understanding disappointment
We were blessed with some outstanding weather for late November, along with being greeted by friendly staff and a day of playing with a member who was just as friendly, playing an awesome course, and greens that ran true. The only disappointment were the sand traps which lacked sand and grooming but with the 2020 economic conditions due to this virus it’s understandable that this was one of many things that had to be addressed. 100% Guaranteed we will be back and already sent word out to some other friends how great this course was.
A quick 9
Was able to get a hot deal here at 3pm....excellent place to play after work. Course is in outstanding shape.
Nice course, terrible pace of play.
I have played this course several times, but this was the first time back in probably 10 years. I always liked the course and excellent facility, but the pace of play was previously unbearable. I figured I’d give it a shot on a Thursday, since my previous Saturday rounds were memorably excessively long. The course was not overly busy, but back 9 ended up being insufferably slow, as usual. Course was in great shape but the back 9 is too difficult for most and just backs up tremendously.
Always A favorite!
Scotland Run is essentially my home course.
The course gets a little crowed on Fri-Sun. and is a bit pricey for the conditions. Greens were in fantastic shape , fairway were good some with some standing water from prior rain storm. Bunkers had wet sand and had been at least graded, tee boxes need work. Never tire of this layout as it offers many interesting holes all different and some short and easy while others are a difficult up hill challenge such as, (par 5 -18th) a fabulous difficult finisher.
This course looks great. It is pleasant to see and fun to play. Lots of traps and not a lot of water. Traps have a thin layer of sand and are very hard under that. Greens were fast. No easy par 3s . Looking forward to playing again and to improve the number I put up today.
It’s Good, but...
I love the layout. My problem is what I’ve seen all too often on higher end priced courses. The “day golfers”, and probably the member, don’t take care of the course. They paid their “X dollars”, and they expect others to clean up behind them. Too many beat up tee boxes, divets not repaired, and ball marks on the greens. They have a few short par 4’s that have SW or LW into greens, and the landing areas are left abused. And can’t anyone fix a GF ball mark...? I just wish they had a ranger out there to enforce courtesy. Oh, but other than that, l did enjoy the layout and the round.
Love to have more daily reasonable priced Hot Deals. Concession lady was very nice. Course was in impeccable condition. Smart to close off certain areas to regrow the rough. It’s a treat to play this course.
Scotland Run has removed some trees. The course has never played better. Greens where in great condition. Freeways and tees in super shape as well. I would advise anyone who loves golf play this course!!
Really enjoyable track to play
Very nice layout. Course was wet after overnight rains that resulted in a cart path only round of golf. Greens were a bit slower than I would like, but that’s typical at this time of year., I will definitely be back!
BEAUTIFUL DAY ON THE COURSE
I would say it's not worth the normal $89 per round that was on the course webpage, but at $65 through Golf Now I would play it again and again.
My only complaint was the greens were a bit slow, otherwise, everything was great.
Scotland Run is by far 1 of the best public courses in the Mid-Atlantic region.
Not up to par
Not sure what is going on, but the course was all torn up. In fairness, they were aerating the course, but I've never seen a course go through aeration with this result. Parts of the course, mostly the rough, looked like it had been set on fire.
Not going back until the problems are fixed.
Not worth the money I spent and not worth yours IMHO.
Everything about this course makes me want to play again. Friendly staff, great conditions. Pace of play was perfect. It’s a secluded course no homes in sight. Watching skydivers jump out of airplanes all day was an added bonus.
