Featured Golf Course Review:
Bent Creek Country Club -- Exquisite Conditioning
Review by: Steve Dyer I was a member at Bent Creek for ten years until moving to South Carolina. Day in and day out, compared with top caliber courses, this is probably the best conditioned course in the Mid-Atlantic area. Tees, fairways, and greens are bent grass, as are the practice tees and even one of the two practice ranges. The course is more difficult than its slope and course rating indicate, with very difficult holes at the start, especially from the back tees. It is a great course for average players from the regular men's tees, and a fantastic test for better players from the back. An under-par score from the back tees is exceptional.

Flourtown Country Club -- Good value for the $
Review by: JW Only 9 holes but still a good value. Good for a leisurely practice round or a quick 9. There are some challenging holes and a couple that are fairly pedestrian. I rank them, in order of favorite to least favorite, as follows: 6, 7, 8, 2, 4, 1, 3, 5, and 9. (In fairness, a friend of mine who plays a lot of golf considers #9 one of the nicest holes in the Philly area, but I can't see why.) For me, the most challenging holes are 9 and 8 from the back tees; 5 and 7 from the front tees. 5 and 2 from the back tees (both par 5's) offer a reasonable chance at a birdie. Overall, the course is a bit short, but over the course of an 18-hole round (there are alternate tees for the front and back 9) you will likely use all the clubs in your bag. Other than on 7 and 9, there is not much difference between the tees for the front and back 9, other than making the hole longer or shorter as the case may be. I've heard FCC described (by other members) as the best value for the money in the Philly area and I'm inclined to agree. (Just for comparison, in the Philadelphia/Montgomery county area I would give Karakung 1 star and the Philly Cricket Club 5 stars.)
