The Best Golf has to Offer in the Philadelphia Area

Philly, The City of Brotherly Love, is full of rich history from the Liberty Bell, The Betsy Ross House and Independence Hall.  In between all that sightseeing and grabbing a Philly cheesesteak sandwich, there are plenty of great public and semi-private courses with their own great history to treat yourself with a round of golf.

Lulu Country Club

Located north of Philly, this once corn and tomato farm now golf course has a storied history including golfing shriners who managed to convince Donald Ross to design his first course in the Keystone State on this very land.  Over the years, the course has seen many changes including the planting of trees and removing of land hazards, not to mention a fire that burned down the original clubhouse during a tournament in 2015.  Construction on the new clubhouse will begin this year.

The Golf Course at Glen Mills

Considered by many as the top public golf course in Eastern Pennsylvania, The Golf Course at Glen Mills breaks all the unofficial rules.  With plenty of hard shots and gratuitous length between tee times, you'll get a uniquely fanciful golf experience.  The course meanders down uneven hillsides and through a steep quarry that will make you want to play the course more than once.
