COURSE REVIEW-

TATTERSALL GOLF CLUB IN WEST CHESTER PA. DESIGNED BY WORLD-RENOWNED ARCHITECT REES JONES, THIS UPSCALE GOLF COURSE IS A SHORT 40 MINUTE DRIVE FROM LEVITTOWN AND ONLY MINUTES OFF THE BLUE ROUTE. SITUATED ON 351 SPACIOUS ACRES IN CHESTER COUNTY. A CLASSIC LAYOUT FEATURES FOUR SETS OF TEES RANGING FROM 5286 TO 6826 YARDS. THE COURSE ALSO FEATURES A BLEND OF 54 BUNKERS, THREE PONDS, NATURAL WETLANDS, A VARIETY OF TREES, SLOPING MOUNDS & BROAD RUN CREEK, WHICH MEANDERS THROUGH THE COURSE. CHANGES IN ELEVATION ARE EXTREMELY DRAMATIC PROVIDING EMPHASIS ON CLUB SELECTION WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY OFFERING SENSATIONAL VISTAS THAT STRETCH FOR MILES. EACH OF THE HOLES ARE VERY PRIVATE AS HILLS AND MOUND LINE MANY OF THE FAIRWAYS THAT SLOPE BACK TO THE PLAYING SURFACE. GREEN FEES DURING THE PEAK SEASON RANGE FROM $85.00 TO A HIGH OF $105.00, BUT CONSIDERING THE LAYOUT AND CONDITIONS OF THE COURSE, IT’S WELL WORTH THE PRICE AT LEAST ONCE A YEAR!

 

QUOTE OF THE MONTH

"AS A GOLF PROFESSIONAL, I’LL TELL YOU THE AMOUNT OF FLEX YOU NEED IN THE SHAFT OF YOUR CLUB.

REMEMBER, THE MORE FLEX, THE GREATER THE STRENGTH YOU’LL NEED TO BREAK IT OVER YOUR KNEE."

JOKE OF THE MONTH -

A FOURSOME WATCHES A LONE PLAYER PLAY UP SHORT OF THE GREEN THEY WERE ON. AS THEY START TO TEE OFF THE 4TH HOLE, THEY WATCH AS THE SINGLE GOLFER QUICKLY CHIPS UP AND PUTTS OUT. HE ALMOST RUNS TO THE 4TH TEE WHERE THE FOURSOME IS. HE LOOKS AT THE BE-WILDERED PLAYERS AND SAYS, "COULD I PLAY THROUGH, I’VE JUST GOT A PHONE-CALL, AND MY WIFE HAS HAD A TERRIBLE

AUTO-ACCIDENT!"
