“Where should we play?” The goal of this website and our rankings is to answer that simple question. Whether you’re a local, a visitor, or new to the area, we want to show you which public golf courses are worth playing in the Philadelphia area. We are not a golf course directory that shows every golf course in Philly. We intentionally want to weed out the average and the bad courses and show you only the ones we consider to be good, quality courses that are worth your money and time to play (and yes, we know we’re bound to ruffle some feathers with those that we’ve excluded).

This page will give you pertinent info and quick access to weather, directions and pricing for each course, and, where available, a course review and discount tee times.

For the purpose of this website we have defined the Philadelphia area as the following counties: Philadelphia, Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery Counties in PA; Burlington, Camden and Gloucester Counties in NJ; New Castle County in Delaware. On the rankings pages you will find the area’s Top 20 public courses as well as rankings of Philadelphia area golf courses worth playing in each of those counties. ¬†Also included are golf course rankings for the Jersey Shore and the best classic and modern private clubs in the area.
