Rating 69.7

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.

Interesting 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.

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!

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

Hamburger Helper

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.

Good day

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.

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!

Fun track

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.

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.
