    Course Information

John F. Byrne Golf Club is one of the most respected courses in Philadelphia. Purchased by the City in the early 1960's, it was renamed after famous Philadelphia councilman, John F. Byrne. As of November 1st, The First Tee of Greater Philadelphia has assumed operations of the course. 

The Alex Findlay layout has played host to numerous tournaments including the Philadelphia Publinks Senior Open Amateur Championship. The course is nestled in and around a valley and features a variety of tree-lined and open fairways. Several elevated tees and greens accent the already rolling terrain, therefore creating dramatic changes in elevation.

The layout is highlighted by the Torresdale Creek which winds its way through the course coming into play on ten holes. In addition to the water, this picturesque golf course features oversized bunkers that are strategically placed to protect the average-sized greens.

Par is an excellent score on the 385-yard par 4 9th hole, as the golfer is required to hit a lengthy tee shot followed by an accurate approach shot to a sloped green guarded by two large bunkers. Once you play this challenging golf course you'll find out what has attracted golfers to John F. Byrne Golf Club for over 70 years.
