The Golf Course at Glen Mills

The Award Winning Golf Course at Glen Mills is a public course located in historic Thornbury Township. It is the only golf course in the Philadelphia area featuring 12-minute starting times. It is a full service, 18-hole golf facility including multiple manicured practice areas. For over a decade this Bobby Weed design has been providing the daily fee golfer with superior golf and the natural beauty of Glen Mills.

Penn Oaks Golf Club

Penn Oaks Golf Course provides amazing scenery and breathtaking views that hearken back to the pre-Colonial era when King Charles II first bestowed this parcel of land to William Penn.  From the moment you step out of your car, there's a feeling of 'stepping back in time'...maybe its the terrain, or the giant oak trees or the lush hills, or the way the lakes seem carved into the land...but you can almost feel the age and history of this place wash over you.  Grand pines line the rolling hillsides of the course’s narrow layout, making it challenging even for many pros. There's plenty of adventure (and potential disaster ;)  to be found on this 18-hole golf course, as well...including Bubba-long holes daring you to get your ball to the green!

There's over 1000 acres of gorgeousness at Longwood Gardens.

Longwood Gardens is an American botanical garden consisting of over 1,077 acres of gardens, woodlands, and meadows in our Brandywine Valley.
