Downing Municipal Golf Course


Featured Golf Course Review:
Downing Municipal Golf Course -- good muni course
Review by: David Downing is a long, flat muni course that is well-kept and still a reasonably good deal ($22 to walk on weekends). Bring your 3-wood, because you're going to need it. The greens are quick but easy to read with few double-breaks. The par-3's are all 180-plus yards, except for one that always seems to be into the wind. The fairways are wide and fairly straight. The groundkeepers let the rough grow long for a muni, especially when a local tournament is coming up. Downing gets a lot of play, and weekend tee times fill up within an hour during peak season. Good, solid muni course.

Lenape Heights Golf Course -- Nice Layout, Very Hilly
Review by: Joe Golf Among the golf courses whose greens fees are in the lower tier, Lenape Heights is one of the nicest. The layout is quite interesting -- each hole has its "own look," and challenges abound. If there is a single downside to the course, it is the fact that you will have to take quite a few blind shots; you have to keep checking on the group ahead to make sure you have a clear shot. Conditioning is generally quite good, although I feel that both the fairways and the rough tend to be cut fairly long (especially the rough). The hilly terrain makes for a difficult walk. If you aren't in great shape, better get a cart. I gave the course a 3 out of 5, but it really is much better than average.
