I’ve played this course a few times this year and it was always in pretty good shape. There are very few bunkers on the golf course and they are always in need of repair but that’s typical of most public courses in the area. They recently aerated their greens and there is no notice on either Golf Now or their website. No discount offered either. The greens rolled ok but the speeds were inconsistent due to the varied amount of sand on them. It made putting and chipping a guessing game. (It’s not wise to aerate so late in the year, 3rd week of November). Although they did a good job, The greens will not recover until May of next year. It’s ideal to aerate at the end of August in the northeast. Growing conditions are ideal and the greens will fully recover in two weeks making for a great green experience throughout the late summer, fall and winter. The rest of the course was in good shape with minor exceptions. The par 5 third is always a bit of a mess as there is a creek running across the hole that overflows its banks and there is poor drainage about 50-75 yards out from the creek, Resulting in a lot of casual water. The pace of play was pretty bad. About 4 3/4 hours. There was one group a few groups ahead of us holding up the entire course. Golf course etiquette is out the window. They were millennials who had no clue and/or didn’t care that there were three holes open in front of them. A round of golf should take four hours max. If you can’t complete a round in four hours or less, you need to pick up after double par or less. Obviously there was no ranger on site the entire round. It sucks when you have to wait on every shot. Other than that, it’s a fun and easy course that is good for the novice golfer. Just learn proper etiquette before heading out to play.
Macoby Run is at the top of my list of favorites. It's elevation changes offer more than just dogleg and putts. The course was in great shape. The greens were unblemished, accessible and challenging. The hole locations are spread out and we rarely even saw other golfers. Workers were courteous and even other golfers were friendly when seen. Great day. The special was delicious... washed it down and on my way home. Dont tell everyone.... I'm hoping it stays a "hidden" gem!
Greens Like Ice
Course, leaf free, beautiful day, greens tough to hold, chip to and putt. This course has great staff, friendly to all, reasonable prices. Well worth the little extra drive. The course is playable by all and holds enough challenges to keep you shot making. Not your average public venue, But is the normal hilly course found in southeast PA. Roll and fairway stance can be challenging.
It is clear that management takes pride and the course is well maintained... overall great value for dollars...
A public course in better than average condition, especially for this time of year. Lot of bridges out along many routes makes getting there a bit tough
Nice course SLOW pace
The course is really nice. You can tell that they are repairing areas, but compared to when I was last here, it’s great. The BIGGEST.issue is the pace of play. It’s a Saturday.in November and it’s sunny/over 70 degrees! On the 3rd hole, there were 12 people waiting. On the ninth hole, 16 people waiting!! If it were not for these backups, I’d rate this course a 5.
Course is in great shape, greens are lightning fast and firm, played after we have had rain for a few days and the course was pretty dry. The only thing I can complain about is that this course is an hour away from where I live. Otherwise I’d play it a few times a week.
Worth the drive
Great layout. Entertaining course. Tea boxes, fairways and greens were in great shape. I would love to play here again.
Great Course, 5 somes should not be allowed
This continues to be one of my favorite courses in the area. Beautiful views, well maintained course. However, the lack of ranger or monitoring seems to be a continuous problem. Our play time was over 5 hours today. 2 groups ahead was a 5 some that took their time all day long. We waited for the group in front of us to tee off every time we pulled up to the next tee. The weather was great and didn't play horrible. But 5 hours is a bit much and could have been remedied.
Pace of play is too slow. 6 hours is too long for a round. If you play at a normal to faster pace is can be very frustrating. Waiting 10 minutes at each tee box is too long. Took an hour to play the first 3 holes. The first time I played here I had a 3:04 Tee time and couldn’t finish 18 due to how slow the pace of play was. Course is fun but poorly run. Desperately needs a ranger.
First time playing this course and I really enjoyed it. Played with 2 friends and they enjoyed it as well, but we could all agree on one thing: The pace of play was very poor. We were stuck behind a group of the 3 that was playing slowly and it held up multiple groups behind us as well. Groups were teeing off very close together and it turned a 4 hour round into a 5.5 hour round. everything else about this course was great but I wish that the pace wasn't such an issue.
Challenging but so slow
I have played here about 6-7 times and every time the backup at hole 3 is 3-4 groups. Average time is 4:30. The course is in good shape and always fun to play. Great value, but a ranger would help things as pace of play is slow.
Great local course
My bf plays here every Saturday in a “league” so I tend to come here a few times a season. Great little course. Conditions appear a bit unkept but the fairways and rough are easy to hit out of. Some ladies tees are extremely uneven (turtle back). Some challenging, interesting and fun holes. During the summer they do have a few holes that are infested with locust killers (large bees that don’t bother you) but it is still a distraction. Went on a day that was forecasted for lots of rain but we got lucky and only drizzled the first 10 min of our teetime. So the course was fairly empty and we could take our time. But I do enjoy playing here. My bf has played every Saturday for years, along with his golf buddies some of whom have been playing here since the 80s!
