Scotland Run Golf Club
Scotland Run Golf Club is conveniently located less than a half hour from downtown Philadelphia and only 45 minutes from Atlantic City. It has been voted the top golf course in the Philadelphia Region and it's also ranked in Golf World's Top 50 Public Courses in the country. The layout is routed through and around an old sand quarry, providing a unique mix of wooded, quarry, and links-style holes. The distinctive landscape has unique features including expansive waste areas and imposing cliffs that were deftly incorporated into the design. The golf course is wide open, which means it's at the mercy of the prevailing winds. Scotland Run Golf Club is a tough but fair test where you'll face forced carries, water hazards, and strategically placed bunkers. On mornings where the fog rolls off of the hills, for a split second you might think you're at St. Andrews.

Par and Bar
The Par and Bar is a great event at Scotland Run!! A round of golf, draft beer and buffet.. The course was in great condition. They have removed a ton of trees and the course is now wide open.
Course was in great shape.. was just aerated but for the most part ready for spring.. there were 3 greens that weren’t ready yet but looked immaculate and ready for the season.
Wow. Save your money
For a discounted rate I got to play it - and I paid too much. 3 temp greens on the front 9, and a closed hole on the back. The course was in such disrepair it was impossible to putt on any green and honestly were close to the same speeds and cut as the temp greens. Our playing partners joked about it but honestly- it wasnt worth it. As for the hole that was closed - not sure why since it looked just as bad as the rest of the course, certainly no worse.
Played here a few years ago and loved it - couldn't have been more disappointed.
4 greens were closed. nothing about this when booking and was unaware till the staff mentioned. $59 greens shut down, no staff at at the halfway house
A great challenge
This course is great as usual and is a great challenge compared to the parkland style courses that are abundant in south jersey.the greens were a little patchy compared to the practice green but is probably due to the over abundance of rain this season.did not have to wait on any tee and barely saw the group behind us.a wonderful day of golf and the staff was awesome.
We were prewarned by the club the greens in bad shape, and they were. It rained and course was soggy. Generally this is very good course. Be that as it was we still enjoyed ourselves
True links course
This wasn’t my first time playing Scotland Run. We were told about the greens being in less than stellar shape. Well, the majority of them had damage from the wet summer. They were under repair and shaggy. Other than that the course was in great shape.
Greens were atrocious. Almost not playable. Normal round 89$, this round 59$, should be 29$.
The course is usually prestine. But they aireate about 3 an half weeks ago. But the weather got hot again. Greens were burnt an bumpy an brown!! I am just glad had promo code to play that day. Also only played 9 holes of 18 that was paid for. Putting the ball was a joke.
Bad Course Conditions
Paid for this round, it says the were aerating which is fine, what it did not say is that over half the greens were just plain dirt. That is not a typo. Dirt, no grass just dirt. The other half were patches of grass and the rest dirt. They lost their greens, but did not mentioned, allowed you to play. It was like putting on mulch. Terrible conditions of the green. Have played here a lot and it usually top notch. Not this time, feel like I wasted my Money.
Greens are in poor condition right now, a couple of them are 80% gone. Recently aerated but the aeration is going to do little. They need reseeding at the least. Rest of the course is in excellent condition .
Greens? More like flat bunkers.
Granite the greens had been aerated last week, the conditions of the greens where a little unpleasant. Everything else was great, guess I’ll have to go earlier in the season next time.
Absolutely a horrible experience, slowed up by a 5some no ranger. The course was an absolute joke for the money, the tee boxes were terrible, the fairways were terrible and the greens were not only air rated but 80 to 90 % dead !!! So upset and disappointed was expecting a beautiful track and was so horribly disappointed
Rainy season wear and tear
I love playing Scotland Run but this course seems to have suffered the rain effects . more than any other Philadelphia area track. The greens had burn and mold spots and the tee boxes and fairways should be better in late September. Very disappointed that the high greens fees were not adjusted when this course is in such mediocre shape.
Course was great
Great day. Out as a twosome and the course is very interesting and overall conditions were excellent with the exception of a few tee boxes that need some attention.
