Find dramatic Rees Jones golf at expansive Broad Run Golfer's Club in West Chester

WEST CHESTER, Pa. -- Broad Run Golfer's Club , located just outside of West Chester, is a Rees Jones-designed gem that was carefully sculpted from 372 acres of rolling hills.

The expansive golf course is not what you would expect to find so close to downtown Philly. The dramatic terrain serves as the centerpiece of the course, providing the holes with plenty of movement and stunning views that stretch across the surrounding countryside.

The course offers a variety of holes, some which play along the valley floor and others that edge along the ridge tops. There are also holes that play across open grassy meadows and some that are routed through dense forests. Throughout the course, swampy marsh areas and high fescue grass wait to swallow up errant shots but Jones included only minimal bunkering so that the challenges wouldn't be too overwhelming.

One of the most memorable holes is the 15th. This uphill par 5 has a tough blind tee shot to a plateau green surrounded by trees but it's hard to be too upset at the difficulty with such a beautiful view in front of you.

Born and raised in the former Soviet Union, photographer Oleg Volovik moved to the United States in 1992 and now lives with his wife and two children in Los Angeles. He joined the TravelGolf editorial team in 2010. Originally graduated with a Masters Degree in Civil Engineering he continued to dedicate his time and energy to his passion for visual arts and photography. Oleg has extensive experience in fine arts, fashion, event, architecture and journalistic photography. His work has been exhibited in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Moscow, where he also taught a master class, sponsored by Hewlett-Packard, in April 2007. He may be a novice golfer, but Oleg always wears a white leather glove during photo sessions. "Golf photography is my own 'game' with the beauty of nature and human creativity.
