Broad Run Golfer's Club
Designed by Rees Jones, Broad Run Golfer's Club boasts one of the best layouts in the area. The course sprawls across over 370 acres of rolling hills countryside. The dramatic elevations are definitely not something you would expect from a golf course that is conveniently situated so close to downtown Philadelphia. The elevated tees feel as though they're in the clouds and mature trees frame most of the holes. There are hazards lurking throughout the golf course including swampy marshlands and tall, dense grasses that are all just waiting to swallow errant shots. It is a challenging layout no doubt but it is made more player friendly with generous fairways and Jones was also light on the bunkering. One of the most difficult and scenic holes is the par-5 15th. This hole plays uphill, featuring a blind tee shot to a plateau green surrounded by trees.

Very Nice Course
Conditions were great. The only thing not up to par was the bunkers. They could use some work. The greens, fairways and tee boxes were very good. Would not hesitate to go back.
How the mighty have fallen
Very sad day.
Course used to be well maintained. Now, not so much.
Traps were trashed, tee boxes, fairways, greens, all in rough shape.
I’ll be back in the spring to see if things change.

Love this course. ....BUT
as much as I like the layout of this course , I have to say the conditions of the green are below average
The fairways and tee boxes are in bad shape. The course needs serious attention
Not a good time to play now
Played before and was a good experience but not at this time. Aeration and no bunkers(full of water).
I was set to play with a group of 4 but they put alone in busy time. Sometimes I had for more than 10 minutes yo hit a shot. At the end I went back to the office to complain but the felt sorry for and wished for me to come back to have a better experience. The gentleman tried his best and gave me a free basket of balls for the range. GolfNow should have my money back.

Great day at Broad Run !
Referred by someone on Easter Sunday at The Golden Pheasant golf course
I was in very pleased at this picturesque course , every hole is beautiful ! Absolutely no chance of getting hit by someone's ball , or hitting someone , because all the tee boxes are far from the previous green ! One thing to note is there is a lot of walking , due to the cavernous greens. Which I didn't mind at all , due to the fact that I need the exercise ! There is elevation changes all over the course ! I would play here every week if it wasn't an hour and a half away !!!!!!! And to cap it off , I had one of the best bloody Mary's after my 3 hour round !!!!!!!
We were told on several other golf outings by others to try Broad Run. It’s a half hour drive for us, which isn’t too bad. Once we got there we were pleasantly surprised! This place is daunting at first, as it plays like a mountain course. We absolutely loved the lay out. Staff were friendly and personable and thanked us for our business no less than 5 times. Greens had been recently aerated, but once that fills in we will definitely be back!
Aerated but otherwise in great shape!
Course is in GREAT shape!! The had just aerated but we knew that going in so other than the greens the course was amazing.
Not A Walking Course
Not only is this a hilly course, the distance from green to tee is long (supposedly 1 mile from the18th green to the clubhouse). There are some very interesting holes and the course was in good condition. The greens were moderately fast and rolled true.
The driving range is into the side of a hill, and is only good for loosing up. The senior rate of $59 is too high, and consequently the course was fairly empty.
No flat lies.
Hills, hills and more hills. Beautiful course with a wide variety of holes. Not for the faint of heart. If you love nature and wildlife and being outdoors enjoying the beauty around you, this is the place.
Decent public track
Broad Run is fun to play although a little guirky in spots. Reasonable conditions and pace of play
