Kimberton Golf Club
Kimberton Golf Club, which opened in 1962, has stood the test of time. Well known golf course designer George Fazio created a nice mix of holes about 45 minutes northwest of Philadelphia. The golf course isn't overly long and doesn't feature a lot of trouble, but it's long on fun. The signature par-4 third, a dogleg right around woods, is a pretty hole and worth the trip. Kimberton Golf Club is a just good old-fashioned, Philadelphia-style golf course.

To start with the check in was very smooth, the gentleman at the counter was very accommodating and helpful.
Cart could use a little attention but overall, no major issues.
Course is reasonably maintained, a little standing water but that is understandable due to heavy rain earlier. Greens rolled true but traps were rain packed and could have used some TLC raking.
Played as a twosome behind a very slow foursome that should have let us play through. Oh well. Would play again.
Always an enjoyable day!
Love playing at Kimberton GC! Staff is friendly, course is in very good condition and pace of play was great even on a holiday weekend! The renovations of the bar area make the 19th hole even more enjoyable!
despite being crowded, had great time. course not wet at all.. pace of play as expected for a saturday. definitely will be back!
one of our favorite places to play
You can always find the course in good condition, especially for winter golf. greens are nice, no B.S. aeration and top dressing.
Solid course that won't beat you up
Even though the course was pretty wet the greens were rolling fast and true. never had to roll the ball to get a good lie. Played last week in south Jersey on a course that still had a lot of leaves on the ground but not here, could not find a leaf anywhere, course really clean. It's evident they care about this place and i'll be back soon
I've nicknamed this course "Hamburger Helper." It's not your first choice, but will work in a pinch when all else fails. The fairways were in decent shape, but the greens were soaking wet after night of rain. No one came out to roll them, so we were literally splashing puddles on the Green. There's nothing flashy about the course, which really doesn't make or break a course. But it does give the appearance of a Podunk kind of golf course In the middle of the country.
nuce coursein good condition
played two satirdays in a row... good pase... greens rolling trie... starter is such a sweet lady!
I love kimbo, they keep it nice and everyone that works there is friendly... Micky and Marie are the best!!!
The course was a little soggy but manageable. Not many other players which allow a two and a half hour round. The staff was friendly and courteous. A bit cold but no wind. Enjoy my day.
Nice day, no rain!
Although a little chilly and overcast, it was a good day. Met some nice guys from Rivercrest golf club. For the middle of December the course was in good shape. The greens were not super fast but were in great shape and ran true. Some tee boxes were a little overused in some spots and could have the markers moved more often. Jim the pro was very accommodating and the newly renovated bar area is nice. The golf cart could have used a windshield to block the wind chill created when driving it. I would definitely play again.
Course in great shape. The leftover snowfall left course wet. 90 degree Tee boxes and greens in great shape.
long time between playing
it had been 10 to 15 years since I have play the course........remembered nothing.......course was in nice shape with the weather we have had.....WET
greens rolled nicely tough to get speed.......all in all nice day of golf..........will be back in the near future
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Glad to have you back after some time. We've made a bunch of improvements in the last few years and love hearing from our players how much they are enjoying them. It's been a trying year for golf courses with all the rain to be sure, but our grounds staff has done a remarkable job keeping us is such great shape despite those challenges. Will definitely pass on your compliments to them as well. Hooe to see you out again soon!
Friendly staff. Grass was higher then usual due to rain. Enjoyed the day. Played with a father and son duo. Nice day
Hadn’t played here in 10 years. Nice to see it again and look forward to returning when I find a deal. Hopefully they will cut the rough down. It was quite high and we lost balls we thought we shouldn’t have. . The full rate of $55 was a little high. In my opinion. Will return for the right price.
Using Their Game
Ownership changed about the middle of last season. I think the children took over for the parents. A lot of new trees were planted. Old dying trees removed.
The greens were lush. Like many courses in the area the greens crew is having trouble keeping up with the grass. Spots are too wet to get equipment on. Not many on the course and on the 16th we found out why. Rain pounded us and my cart buddy went in. I put on my rain jacket and carried the last 3 holes. Feeling it this morning.
Glad you are enjoying the new changes... more on way! Our goal after purchasing from the family is to make Kimberton one of the most enjoyable experiences in the area. The course has such a great history and we are honored to be carrying it on and improving upon it. Thank you for the review, look forward to having you out again soon.
Good little course
Greens were in fantastic shape. Course is a very good value, some tricky holes. The bar is awesome! Food is good.
Course is always in good condition. Greens rolled smooth. Kimberton, while challenging, is a great place to go and just play golf. The course is right in front of you.
Thank you for the review and the kind words. We're having a great time putting in all the extra work it takes to stand out. Awesome to hear when people enjoy the course! We have a few new sets of back tees in the works, should really add a bit more challenge to those that want to test themselves.
Course was in good shape.
Comfortable pace. Friendly and courteous staff. I will lay there again.
