FDR Golf Course

The closest golf course to Center City, the undisputed pulse of the City of Brotherly Love, this 80-year-old spot offers more than 6,000 yards of golf bliss, and it’s welcoming for golfers of all skill levels.

If you’re new to the game, or just looking to step up your gear game, make sure to stop by the pro shop; the staff there are more than happy to help you pick the perfect tools to take your swing to the next level.

John F. Byrne Golf Course

Named for one of the most esteemed Philadelphia councilmen, this course became the property of the city back in the early 1960s. As the site of a number of tournaments, these tree-lined fairways will provide just the right amount of challenge to really test your skill level. Throughout the course, you’ll encounter plenty of water and oversized bunkers and, whether it’s for pre-tee-off energy or to wind down after a round, be sure to stop by the snack bar for a quick bite to eat and a refreshing cocktail.

Walnut Lane Golf

First opened back in 1940, this course lays right in the middle of Wissahickon Valley Park. Golfers will delight in the exceptional challenge delivered by a handful of par-three holes, plus several that are hiding in plain sight, under the protection of hills and valleys. If you’re not sure your skill is up to par, take advantage of the practice facilities. On staff are several PGA golfers that are more than willing to help you really hone your abilities.
