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.

Nice course, terrible pace of play.

I have played this course several times, but this was the first time back in probably 10 years. I always liked the course and excellent facility, but the pace of play was previously unbearable. I figured I’d give it a shot on a Thursday, since my previous Saturday rounds were memorably excessively long. The course was not overly busy, but back 9 ended up being insufferably slow, as usual. Course was in great shape but the back 9 is too difficult for most and just backs up tremendously.

Always A favorite!

Scotland Run is essentially my home course.
The course gets a little crowed on Fri-Sun. and is a bit pricey for the conditions. Greens were in fantastic shape , fairway were good some with some standing water from prior rain storm. Bunkers had wet sand and had been at least graded, tee boxes need work. Never tire of this layout as it offers many interesting holes all different and some short and easy while others are a difficult up hill challenge such as, (par 5 -18th) a fabulous difficult finisher.

Visually impressive

This course looks great. It is pleasant to see and fun to play. Lots of traps and not a lot of water. Traps have a thin layer of sand and are very hard under that. Greens were fast. No easy par 3s . Looking forward to playing again and to improve the number I put up today.

It’s Good, but...

I love the layout. My problem is what I’ve seen all too often on higher end priced courses. The “day golfers”, and probably the member, don’t take care of the course. They paid their “X dollars”, and they expect others to clean up behind them. Too many beat up tee boxes, divets not repaired, and ball marks on the greens. They have a few short par 4’s that have SW or LW into greens, and the landing areas are left abused. And can’t anyone fix a GF ball mark...? I just wish they had a ranger out there to enforce courtesy. Oh, but other than that, l did enjoy the layout and the round.

Great Course

Love to have more daily reasonable priced Hot Deals. Concession lady was very nice. Course was in impeccable condition. Smart to close off certain areas to regrow the rough. It’s a treat to play this course.

Really enjoyable track to play

Very nice layout. Course was wet after overnight rains that resulted in a cart path only round of golf. Greens were a bit slower than I would like, but that’s typical at this time of year., I will definitely be back!

BEAUTIFUL DAY ON THE COURSE

I would say it's not worth the normal $89 per round that was on the course webpage, but at $65 through Golf Now I would play it again and again.
My only complaint was the greens were a bit slow, otherwise, everything was great.

Not up to par

Not sure what is going on, but the course was all torn up. In fairness, they were aerating the course, but I've never seen a course go through aeration with this result. Parts of the course, mostly the rough, looked like it had been set on fire.

Not going back until the problems are fixed.

Not worth the money I spent and not worth yours IMHO.

Great conditions

Everything about this course makes me want to play again. Friendly staff, great conditions. Pace of play was perfect. It’s a secluded course no homes in sight. Watching skydivers jump out of airplanes all day was an added bonus.

Great staff, horrible conditions

the staff and layout of this course is great. The conditions as of today are not worth the cost. Fairways were fair to poor... greens were ok but the grass leading to the greens were bad. Weeds stopped my chip on the 7th. Some fairways were aeratored and just in poor shape... not worth what I paid.

The course was beautiful, the pace was slow and that could be do because of the size of the course because if you’re not a big hitter you got your work cut out for you .But if you are a decent golfer it’s a great challenge
