    Merion Golf Club (East) Course Review




    The Merion Golf Club was designed way back in 1912 by the famous architect (in his time) Hugh Wilson and its a private facility, being available for its members and their guests only. As per its accolades, the Merion Golf Club was ranked 7th by the reputable magazine Golf Digest in its 2013 2014 top one hundred greatest courses in the United States and 2nd in its home state (Pennsylvania that is). What to expect while playing here? Well, according to many tour pros, the Merion Golf Clubs golf course is arguably one of the best per acre in the world, as the layout is pure genius, impressive by any imaginable standard and taking into account that the course spreads over just 120 acres of land, its truly a masterpiece.

    Hugh Wilsons mastermind really hit the spot with this baby and despite the courses restricted acreage, it doesnt feel short at all and it will provide you with an unforgettable and most challenging golfing experience, regardless of your skill level. The bunkers at Merion Golf Club are famously known as the white faces and they were the first ever to feature raised lips on the back side, so they seem like looking back at the players. The bunkers on the greenside feature elevated/deep lips next to the putting surface, due to the fact that they have been built up from the sand flying out of the bunker and onto the lip over time. Keep in mind that the golf course at Merion Golf Club is walking only and its mandatory to complete your round in four hours max. Another unique feature at Merion, one youll not be able to find anywhere else by that matter is that youll find wicker baskets on top of the flag sticks, not flags. Also, this golf club practically oozes with history and tradition, as it has hosted a USGA Tournament once every ten years or so since its inception and playing here youll not be able to find one bad hole on the property, while the courses elevation changes will deliver lots of fan and variety during your round.
