We list only public courses that are less than an hour by car from the heart of the Brandywine Valley. If you know of a course that should be included, email us at hello@thebrandywine.com and let us know.

If you play golf and don't belong to a club or even if you do and play other courses, we highly recommend the Tee Time Golf Pass . This book is a bargain. You can save $10 - $30 in greens fees every time you play. You owe it to yourself to check it out.

1107 Pilgrims Pathway | Peach Bottom, PA | 717.548.3011

221 Glen Mills Road | Glen Mills, PA | 610.558.2142<
Designed by Bobby Weed, Glen Mills' vistas are breathtaking. The changes in elevation reminded you a bit of Fieldstone in Delaware, except this course is open to the public. The fairways are undulating and water comes into play on the back nine. Tee times can be reserved 7 days in advance.

The course is linked directly to the Glen Mills School, founded in 1826, which is a residential facility for troubled youth. The course is being used as a training facilty for students in turf management and golf house operations. Revenues go to a student scholarship fund.


13 Chisel Creek Drive | Landenberg, PA | 610.255.3961
Chisel Creek opened in 2000. It was built by Niebur Golf, the same people who built Fieldstone Golf Club, an awesome private course in Delaware. Chisel Creek is a par 70 design, three par 5s, five par 3s including No. 3 with an island green.

The layout puts a premium on placement rather than length. The greens are challenging and undulating. Distances on many holes are deceiving and the rough is stubborn. The par 5, 6th hole is particularly challenging as is the par 4, 12th. Overall, an interesting challenge. Play it and let us know what you think.

US Rt. 30 | Downingtown, PA | 610.269.2000<
Renovated George Fazio designed course that gets a lot of traffic. 18 holes, par 72, open year round. We have heard mixed reviews on Downingtown, but we have not played the course.

"Downingtown is a nice course and should be recommended.  There are several sets of tees that make it family friendly, yet from the back tees, it is quite a challenge. There are several risk reward holes that beg you to dare, but will punish you for mistakes. The condition of the course is nice and despite the high traffic, I thought the greens and fairways were in excellent shape.  It's not a high end daily fee, but I felt like I got a very good value for my money."

104 Horseshoe Drive | Thorndale, PA 19372 | 610.384.9128
Par 68 course, with six par threes, ten par fours and two par fives. Water comes into play on seven holes on the course which puts a premium on accuracy rather than length. Comments?


Rt. 1 & Bypass | Toughkenamon, PA | 610.268.2234
Fun layout. Water on 14 holes. Target golf. The course is in the best condition ever. 18 holes, par 70. Comments?


402 Schoff Road | Atglen, PA | 610.593.2600
Family owned and operated. Fairly straightforward layout with some demanding shots required to score well. Water is a factor on three holes, especially the 18th par four. 18 holes, par 72. Comments?


653 Scotland Road | Quarryville, PA  | 717.786.2220
Don't let the address fool you. This is no links course. Front 9 is fairly flat. Back 9 is up and down hills. A fun course. Conditions are fair. 18 holes, par 72.
