No rain for days, still plenty wet
Overall, relatively narrow fairways with not much buffer between you and the poison ivy and oak -- don't go hunting for lost balls. Also, with the actual broad run nearby, most low points remain damp or wet. Fairways were well kept and the greens were running pretty fast, seems like the cicadas are out this year leaving holes everywhere.
Not too bad.
Have played many rounds here. Years back it was pristine, but is starting to worsen, esp traps. Water in play on three holes. Play can back up since it is only 9 holes. Price? Good question. Rates are not posted on line nor posted at desk, so either call (and write down the price), or bring your Ouija Board. I think the price varies according to the hour of day. Advantage Card is a good deal for Senior at $39 a year. Pays for itself after two rounds, then 20% off rounds. Senior rates offered at age 60 or 62, I believe. Staff does a good job to accommodate the golfer, and confirms tee times via email.
Friendly check in and starter. Course in good shape and pace was good. Good value.
Good Public Course
Ladies and Gentlemen,
This is a good public course with a good practice facility. Remember, this is a public course and not a Country Club. Pace of play can be slow at times. However, if you are going to play golf, then you should expect that sometimes. This course is great for the beginner and junior golfer (9+).
Staff if friendly and helpful.
Suprising Find - Great Putting Green
I was in VA for a buddy's Bday celebration and had the chance to play 9 with some local buddies. Great time and nice practice facilities with a great putting green.
If you want to play 9 or 18 holes this is a good place to play for the cost. Easy to get to and staff is very friendly!
Most scenic public course in Chester County PA
Ok, so it is only 10 minutes from my house, but it really is one of the most scenic courses I've played, and in the fall....magnificent! Hilly doesn't begin to describe the terrain, but I have seen people walk this course (insane!). Spoiled by the fast pace of play (during the week, mid-day). Maintained very well. Could use a few more rakes around bunkers.
This is NOT the Broad Run course in Va.
You get what you pay for
It's a meh course, meh plus at best. However it is dirt cheap... and for the price, you get a lot of dirt instead of grass.
Not to say it's terrible, or I wouldn't play it again - it's super cheap - but not a steal. You get about the value you pay for. Good if you need a warm up round.
Other possible big negative: it's only 9 holes that guys play twice. On a busy day that backs up 1. We had two groups in front of us for our tee time, even though times before and after were open 4 slots worth.
Thank you for playing Broad Run; and, for your review, Jim! You are correct in that fitting in groups making the turn with groups teeing off hole #1 can be a challenge on busy days. We may not have had a starter at the first tee when you played with it being so early in the golf season; but, this time of year we do have a starter everyday alleviating such backups. We will take your feedback and try to better serve you in the future though! Hope to see you soon.
