About

Holes 18
Par 70
Length 6561
Slope 143
Rating 72.1
Type Public
Inniscrone Golf Club in Avondale is one of the toughest public courses in the area. It is a formidable challenge to say the least, but an enjoyable one. None of the holes run parallel to each other and no two holes are alike either. The greens have quite a bit of variation from one to the next but mostly they are very large and extremely fast. Although the greens only have mild contouring, the rippling landscape still provides plenty of challenges throughout. Strategically placed bunkers perfectly complement the dramatic elevation changes, ranging from pot bunkers to vast expanses of sand. Inniscrone Golf Club's ninth hole is a memorable one since it encapsulates the course's appeal with a ridge of cross-bunkers just off the tee and even more along the left side.

great course great value

My buddies and I go every Thursday afternoon. Certainly the course has its challenges this year due to the amount of rainfall, however, greens crew works VERY hard trying to keep up.

Very pleasant staff and a fun course

Tale of Two Nines

Front nine is a challenging and fair layout of holes.

Back nine is has many hokey holes.

Fairways and greens in great shape. Rough is unacceptably high. If you miss the fairway even slightly on many holes, there is a slim chance you will find your ball.

Would recommend playing, though with the above understanding of course. $45 or less.

TOUGH

It was my first time and I found the course rather challenging. (a) Severe slopes/elevations on some of the fairways and approaches requires adjustments on alignment, stance and distance to green. It also results in the ball rolling off the fairway if the tee shot is slightly offline. (b) Some holes are setup to severely punish wayward tee shots/approaches and misjudged distances to the green. (c) Each bunker is deep and wide enough to bury a dinosaur or two or three. (d) Met a gentleman walking the course. He said he was playing 18. I saw but did not believe.

Left the course feeling I had been in an 18 round boxing event (not as the referee).

Can't wait to recuperate so I can go back!

Squishy but good

It's a tough little course, playing the back tees puts you in some odd places but adds some challenges to an engaging layout. The greens and fairways are always pretty good and a ton of rain recently made it a bit muddy but nothing bad. Staff are good, new carts are nice it's a good course for beginning golfers as well as challenging enough to keep good players on their toes.

Nice course for the right price

Played using a $20 online voucher, so that certainly made me a bit less critical of the course. Nonetheless, it was a nice course, but I don't know that it was worth the 1.5+ hour drive to get to it. It was generally in good shape, but two or three of the tee boxes left a lot to be desired. It's a pretty fair balance of open/tight holes throughout. If you get on this course for $30 or less, you'll be content. Paying anything over that might leave you a little disappointed.

Tough rough

Played here years back and was awesome. This time out, not the same to play the least. Never spent more time searching for a ball in the rough. 1 foot off the fairway or skirt would take several minutes to find.

This was a nice course. They handled the recent monsoon conditions well. The course is over an hour from Philadelphia (where I live) and not that outstanding to justify the trip.

Good, but gets difficult on the back

I have mixed feelings about this place. The course is interesting, is usually in pretty good shape, the greens fees are reasonable, the staff is friendly. But I have never enjoyed the design of this course. The front nine is very good and pretty straightforward, but the back nine is much more difficult and is filled with blind shots, greens perched next to steep ravines, and forced carries,. I like the course; I wish I liked it more.

Great Value

This Gil Hanse designed course is a treasure. The layout is challenging with varied holes. I knew all this because I have played the course many times. But what impressed me today, was the course condition. In spite of the dry conditions we have been experiencing, the course was not at all burned out. The greens keeping staff is doing a great job.

Always in good shape

Haven’t played Inniscrone in a couple years. Glad to see it is still in above average shape. Always worth playing, especially when you get a deal on GolfNow. I recommend everyone come out to Avondale and play this track at least once a year.

Worth the Drive!

Beautifully maintained course with lots of challenges, but also some forgiving holes to help you out. Great staff from the cart attendant to the pro shop. We will definitely play this course again, even though it's a half hour drive away, it's worth every mile. The only negative was that there was no beverage cart, and for 100 F temps on the Fourth, that would have been greatly appreciated!

If I lived close, I’d get a membership. Layout is fantastic, and condition was very good. It’s easy to see that the course was meant to be private. They softened up a few holes but the course stays difficult from the back tees.

2nd time I have played this course, but it was a couple years ago when I played for the first time. The Golf Course is in excellent condition and will challenge you in every way possible.
