Had an awesome time here with a few of my friends. Staff was very friendly from bag drop to pro shop to starter. All very knowledgeable and helpful. Was excited to see they are adding a huge new putting green too. Can't wait to play here again!

I regularly include D-town in my local public and private rotation. Jaws and the team are making changes constantly! Including a NEW putting green! Putting clinics on Friday night! And Tom's best of bloody Mary's at the turn. Friendly pro shop staff and quick witted starters will get you singing the wrenches! If you haven't been to this track in a while, I highly recommend you check it out! Cannot wait for the weather to turn and see this place at its best!

I came to golf at Downingtown Country Club alone and was warmly greeted by the pro shop staff and immediately hooked up with a group. What a relief not to have to hang around and hope someone would take pity on me! They did a nice job of including me in the right group.

The changes to the course layout are really positive. The staff told me there is a new putting green opening in May, and since this is an area of my game that needs work I may also take them up on the Friday night putting clinics.

It was great to see Ron there that day - he is so positive and adds to the positive atmosphere in Downingtown. Great day of golf.

Played at Downingtown Country Club for the first time in years yesterday and all I can say is WOW. What an all around improvement. The course condition were absolutely immaculate and this is at the end of February! Cant wait to see what the course looks like once the weather breaks. The staff was great from the very kind and helpful golf staff to the tavern staff, DCC is full of all-stars! Cant wait until my next visit to Downingtown!

beautiful course on a gorgeous February day. I couldn't believe how green and lush the course was from tee to green. Jaws is putting a lot of money in the tree work. Grounds crew were working on filling stump holes where A LOT of trees once were. Saw a sign for a big putting green being built in front of the clubhouse. I cant wait to see that. The previous practice green they built was way too small. Pace of play was slow with no ranger in sight. I don't blame it being packed since it was the warmest day of the year.... IN FEBRUARY! Food and drinks were excellent after our round. The bartender was very friendly! Great day at downingtown.

NIce course but there were leaves everywhere and it is the end of November. Most leaves should be gone by now. Then we saw the one guy working with the blower and it was evident as to why there were leaves everywhere. My grandmother could work faster than that guy. They need more and better grounds crew employees.

This course is regularly priced in the $70 during the summer and that is a complete ripoff. Like other Ron Jaworski courses it is overpriced.

No ranger, ever. For a chilly Saturday morning, when beginners generally don't appear, I don't understand how a Jaworski course can ignore slow pace of play. I like the course. I like the people. But the pace is brutal. The layout allows you to see the gaps between groups. Too much waiting on tee box [Hole #3 there were two foursomes]. Yet nobody at the course seems to notice or care.

I'd rather play on an average course with better pace of play.

Gave 5 stars for the fact that the course was in magnificent shape! It's been a wet week but the greens were super quick and rolled true! Looked like they just laid sand on the greens but that didn't affect putting at all! Very surprised! Looks like Jaws is putting some money into the course. Seems like less trees and all the bunkers have new sand! Bravo Mr Jaworski! I belong to a local private club, but with the friendliness of the staff from start to finish and the course conditions, I felt like I was at home. Only damper was pace of play, We didn't see a ranger out there all day and there was a major backup on the 13th hole. 4 groups ahead of us we slow and had an empty hole in front of them. Had nothing to do all day so I didn't mind! We will definitely be back soon!
