Inniscrone Golf Club in Avondale is making a comeback

AVONDALE, Pa. -- Inniscrone Golf Club was private and ranked among the top 100 modern courses in America by Golfweek when it opened in the late 1990s. Over the past several years, however, the course's conditions deteriorated.

But Inniscrone, located about an hour from Philadelphia, is making a comeback. London Grove Township hired the Heathland Hospitality Group to manage the club in December 2011 -- and it's paying off.

Bunkers have been reworked. Greens have been improved. And more changes are coming on this Gil Hanse design, which is open for public play and also offers memberships. Enjoy the picturesque par-3 11th and the challenges of the fourth and 17th holes, which both have severely sloping greens.

Improvements are planned for the clubhouse and facilities as well, meaning the best days at Inniscrone Golf Club are ahead.
