Good day, good weather

About 45 degrees at 9 am but warmed up the whole round and was 71 when we got finished. Course is in pretty good shape considering it's the end of winter.

Chilly, chilly

Had made a teetime at another course further north for a time of 11:40 but they called and canceled the day because they still had too much snow on the course. Found an 8:34 time here , naturally a frost delay of well over an hour. Played by myself - first one out - finished 18 in under 3 hours. Lots of extra roll out from the frozen ground. Was getting to 50 degrees as I finished. Take an awl with you to get the tee in the ground. was a good round.

Frozen tundra

Well during this time of year you can expect frozen greens especially when you play early. They were in decent shape but a little hard. Course in good shape and there seems to be maintenance on going to improve the course. Would go back. It’s nice brisk weather to be able to play in January.

Golf in January

Had to wait for frost. However worth the wait. Course was in really good shape for winter golf. The price helped as well with the steal for $28 on golfnow.

Wonderful Friday Afternoon

Our threesome teed off about 2:40pm on a Friday. Pace was good. We only caught the group ahead once or twice but the wait was short. We allowed a single to play thru on the back nine and finished in under 4 1/2 hours. We were in no hurry. The conditions were very good especially the greens. Our threesome all enjoyed the course and conditions and we will play here again. The location is great even though the drive is longer than some other courses. Quick access to 95 or rte 1 makes it a fast trip. Beers were cheap compared to other tracks and the snacks after the round were tasty. All in all it was a great day.

Well Manicured Course

Was in Philadelphia for a week and had two chances to golf. Bensalem was the best of the two with night and day differences in quality and amenities. The course was well taken care of and was challenging...especially the back 9. I have my new best par ever on the 400 yard 4 par 15th hole when my tee shot hit a tree in the hollow about 100 yards off the tee and bounced back to within 5 yards of the tee box. Yes, the last 5 holes of the back 9 play very tight.

Average

I had not played here for a while. I was surprised that course conditions were mostly better than average. The greens putted well while the fairways were OK but some of the tees were just dirt. Layout is OK and back nine is a stiffer test than the front.

Beautiful weather!

Early round beat the heat. Course had had quite a few repairs done to it. Pretty good shape.
