This course is very challanging with the surrounding homes lining the fairways. the bunkers are deep in some areas and the greens are above average.

Customer Service

I found the staff professional and helpfull.

TigerPaw   Shoots in the 80s [Aug 15, 2007]

A fantastic and exciting Arnold Palmer Signature Course (rare to find in eastern PA). With 6 sets of tees there is a fair test of golf for all skill levels. The range is nice with pyrmaids of balls, short-game area is awesome and the professional staff is very freindly & accomodating. The clubhouse is very cool, not too big or small and not stuffy with cool modern music, great bar and ideal outside dining with views of 9, 18 & pond. The course is challenging but fair. Course conditions were very well manicured. Greens fast and true and bunkers are large and filled with light white sand. The layout is very intriguing with a nice blend of easier and tougher holes. It's both pretty and deceptivety. The back a bit easier but more scenic. Overall, arguably some of Arnie's best work as this course is fun to play.

Customer Service

The staff was very freindly. From bag kids to pro shop and restaurant staff, to membership director, all get high grades. Not stuffy in the least. Attentive service without any attitide, and they make you feel right at home. Also, their New Membership Plans are unbelievable and a no brainer if you live within 30-40 minutes. It's really that good.

Similar Products Used: Definitely the best of like courses in the area. It's not Cricket, but defintely better than Talamore, Meadowlands, Cedarbrook & Ole York Road. I would highly recommend Blue Bell to all golfers, as I have had nothing but positive expereinces there.

golf nut   Shoots in the 70s [May 29, 2003]

Private course that's still rather new. Trees need to mature to conceal some of the homes. In a few yrs this will be one of Philly's great courses. Excellent layout & course design (A.Palmer). Very few blind shots. OB on every hole.

Customer Service

Friendly, professional service. Private course w/out the attitude. Extremely helpful to the guests of the members.

Similar Products Used: Great short game area. Two tiered, grass driving range. Beautiful clubhouse w/ patio & mixed grill overlooking #9 & #18.

A   Shoots in the 70s [Apr 29, 2003]

Par 71. Blue tees are 72.0/130 & gold tees are 73.6/132. It seemed more difficult due to wind & landing areas. This course will challenge all level of golfers. Bent grass greens/fairways were in excellent shape. Fav holes are 13 & 15. The back 9 seemed more challenging than the front.

Customer Service

Excellent service in the pro shop. Tee times every 9-10 minutes. The pace was very enjoyable. Great food in the mixed grill & main dining room. Celebrity head chef.

Similar Products Used: Short game facility is top notch & is convenient to the clubhouse. It's great for practicing sand shots & 10-40 yard shots. The men's grill is a fun place to have a drink (or play cards if you're a me

Arnuld Palmer   Shoots in the 80s [Apr 02, 2003]

This is a great course. The bentgrass fairways & greens are well maintained. OB on nearly ever hole makes this course very difficult. There's a big premium placed on hitting a straight ball off the tee.

Customer Service

Friendly people. Bag drop guys were helpful upon arrival. Excellent food (Chef Jim Coleman formerly from the Rittenhouse Hotel).

Similar Products Used: The best short game facility I've ever seen. Not too many Phila private clubs (ie Merion, Aronimink, etc.) have a short game practice facility of this caliber.

jaime   Shoots in the 100s [Feb 20, 2003]

well, the course is long and fair. unlike the residents on this course(JOHN ASHDALE for example), i can expect to play a fair game. John should take better care of his personal life and not make such a mess of himself out on the "links", or he may get himself in a bit of a hole. By the way, the fact that many know about his "partner" can only hurt the game itself.

Scottinpa   Shoots in the 80s [Jun 27, 2002]

Great challenge. Fast, smooth greens. Superb fairways. Plays longer then card due to tightness of landing areas. Wind always felt like it was in our faces. Favorite hole is #13- slight dog left- up hill second shot with a killer bunker if you are short.

Customer Service

Nice people. 4.10 hour round. It was pleasure with no pressure

Similar Products Used: Food is really good. Jim Coleman is the head chief.
