New Golf Practice Facility
Coming Spring 2020
Philadelphia Country Club realizes that as a premier golf destination, it is important to have a Golf Practice Facility with adequate grass teeing area and range size to allow most golfers to practice with all of their clubs on fresh and well-maintained grass. PCC has also recognized the dramatic change to the game of golf itself. A “driving range” is no longer intended or sufficient for ten-minute warm ups before a 4 hour round on a day dedicated only to golf or a rare lesson. Practice and enhancement of skills is now as important a component of golf as playing an 18 hole round. Changes in technology and learning processes now make everyone a lifelong and continuous learner. New Member families, both dedicated golfers and aspirant golfers, require such a facility before committing substantial funds to a golf membership.
Planned to open in spring of 2020, will be a New Golf Practice Facility situated directly next to the Centennial Course. Much consideration has been given to this solution and this will be done without interference with our existing championship Spring Mill course, and while retaining the playability, walkability and flexibility of our Centennial Nine.
