Philadelphia Cricket Club Golf Course Review
The city of Philadelphia is one of the United State's greatest golf centers and the Philadelphia Cricket Club is at the heart of Philadelphias golfing community. What makes this golf resort really special is the fact that it has built a different golf club in every of the last 3 centuries. And lets begin with the Wissahickon Golf Course, designed by the famous architect (at that time) A.W. Tillinghast in 1920. Currently known as the Wissahickon , this golf course was first opened for players in 1922 and its a master piece of a golf-design genius, offering its visitors a world class experience. Just a few years ago, the Wissahickon suffered an extensive renovation and it was ranked 30th on Golf Weeks top 100 Classic courses in the United States.
The second one is the Militia Hill Golf Course, which was designed by Dana Fry and Dr. Michael Hurdzan in 2002, being an 18 hole championship course adjacent to the Wissahickon and overlooking an area which was a battleground in the Revolutionary War, hence its name. The Militia Hill Golf Course was host for Philadelphia Section PGA championship in 2003 and 2004 and for the 2004 Philadelphia Amateur Championship. This baby was designed to complement the Wissahickon, not to clash/compete with it, being ranked by Golf Digest as the 22nd best course in Pennsylvania. Last but not least, theres the St. Martins Golf Course, built way back in 1895 and wearing the signature of architect Willie Tucker. Originally a 9 hole design, the St. Martins Golf Course was expanded to an 18 hole regulation 2 years later, in 1897. The golf course is now known as Martins and it was the host for the 1907 and 1910 US Open championship, and it plays currently as a very pleasant nine hole layout. The Philadelphia Cricket Club also provides a practice facility for its visitors, featuring a two tiered ranged, including a short game area, an indoor instruction area, an irons only area and plenty of grass hitting stations, which are available for its members from dusk till dawn.
