We had a foursome go out and it was torrential down pouring with 30mph winds going into the 9th hole. Asked them for a rain check for the back 9 and wouldn't "unless the 18 is flooded." Absolute joke and won't ever be back there again.
Short Course with Risk/Reward
Rolling hills with tight fairways on many holes. Relatively short compared to your average course, but elevation changes compensate. Several holes give the opportunity to go for the green off the tee. However, this tends to slow down play. Many fairways are sloped, so you have to place your shots. I enjoyed the round, but would only play on a weekday. It has a 5+ hour round on a weekend feel.
Couldn't have been any slower.
The course was in decent shape. Staff was OK. The problem was and still is they have a men's league on Sunday and don"t enforce any kind of "pace of play". I called the clubhouse and talked to the pro and he said he would talk to them. I said that does me no good, Im stuck behind them. Never again. $60 to follow the living dead. LOL These guys took at least 5 minutes alone just putting. Seriously, these guys should take up bowling. Maybe even foot golf. The holes are bigger for them.
Overpriced for sure
Played a round here this past weekend. Back tees are only 5700 yards. I didn't use my driver the whole round. Course conditions were great, but paying 62 bucks for a shorter course is crazy. I mean you can play Glen Mills for 68 bucks. Most holes you aren't rewarded for good tee shots trying to cut all the dog legs. I'd probably play again, but not for $62 and for accuracy off the tee with 4 and 5 irons.
Cut the ranger
Love this course. The ranger is without question a rude and miserable man. I got hooked up with 3 women who were playing 9 holes. I finished 18 and the ranger challenged me with, "Where did you come from? How did you get on the course by yourself? What time did you start?" Obviously an accusatory tone and VERY unfriendly. I payed for 18 holes and played 18 holes. Who needs that kind of interrogation after a round of golf. it's YOUR job to find out what's happening on the course instead of interrogating someone when they return the cart. There's a grouchy starter too but he's thankfully not there all the time.
A Decent Municipal Course
This is a good course for the beginning to average golfer. Better golfers and big hitters might not find it too challenging. The green complexes are interesting with interesting bunkering and there are some very good par 3's. Conditions were excellent, and I didn't see any rough patches or bad spots on the greens. There is a very good restaurant/bar at the course and it's a good place for a post round meal and drink.
Paxon fits the bill of a nice but not great local municipal course. Its generally in pretty good shape and a fun play. Depending on when you go (as with most muni publics), pay of play can be very slow and the course gets a lot of play due to the lack of options in the area.
Improving Delco course
Not a lot of great option for public golf in Delco, but Paxon Hollow has been doing a good job of fixing itself up. 5 years ago it was not in great shape, but they have taken good care of it over the past few years and the green, fairways, and tee boxes are in pretty good shape.
The course itself it ok - few tough holes, few easy ones,nothing overwhelmingly spectacular. But a nice round if you can play in a reasonable amount of time and get a decent price.
Good Delco Course
Lots of hills and blind shots, but a good overall course in Delaware county.
This was a great course, some unique holes with different shots that needed to be played, i really did enjoy my time here, i did find it easy. fairways and greens were great
I think they have done a nice job with certain things here - the clubhouse is nice, they re-did the snack bar, and the deck is great.
the course is what it is - nothing really spectacular about it, the greens were in decent shape but it is a short course with some very forgettable holes.
17 is a neat little par 3, and 18 is a very tough par 5. $65 for this course is a bit much.
Pace of play is usually pretty bad.
Very well-kept except some tees
Played this course with friend and his son on a day with some diverse weather. Overcast, humid and a 12 minute rain shower. Still the course was in great condition, ever after the rain. The weather may have scared off some folks because had very little waiting, finishing in 4 1/4 hours. I can see how it might be consider easy, but you do need to be accurate or you'll be penalized. Greens were large and had some interest, but were not particularly difficult. I'd play again.
Can be a decent place during the week
I played 9 after hitting some irons on the range and hitting some chips and putts. It was a great way to get in some holes and practice during the week. I try not to play here on the weekends because the pace of play is brutal and it's not worth the money the charge in prime time - Typical of the public options in Delaware County.
A few nice holes, 5, 17, 18 and a few tough ones as well but nothing overly memorable about the course and some gimmicky holes.
Staff was nice and the patio is great for a drink or two.
always good shape
Consistently in good shape for the amount of play it gets. Expect up to a 6 hour round on Sunday if you get behind their Men's League. Overall pleasant experience most times. Has some good character holes.
