First off I want to start by saying I am writing this review as a guest and recent bride myself. If you want your guests and close family to feel welcomed to your wedding, stay far away from this place. We arrived a bit early so we could set the bathroom baskets up as a favor to the bride, our close family member. After asking 3 different employees where the bathrooms the wedding guest would be using were located, we were directed to the bathrooms closest to the reception. After setting it up, Karen the event coordinator comes up to us, full of attitude, saying they belong in the locker room. We explained they were courtesy baskets for the guests use. She left came back and walked past us in a huff, proclaiming the bride wants them in the locker room. Finally a different employee, was very sweet, she was a blond at the hostess booth , her name may have been Laura, anyway she explained that the locker room is the bathrooms downstairs for guest use during the ceremony and cocktail hour and that the baskets were to go down there first and would be moved up to the reception bathrooms after cocktail hour. We tried to chalk this incident up to a simple misunderstanding but this lady, Karen, walked past us a 3rd time this time carrying the baskets and again said us, "I told you, the bride wanted them in the locker room." She was cocky and full of attitude. Trying to get the night back on the right foot, since we were a bit early, we decided to head to the bar and get a drink. Me and my husband walked up to a pretty empty bar, maybe 8 people sitting there and were asked if we were guests of the wedding We told her we were and the bartender informed us the bar is members only, OK, my very sweet husband asks, " Is there anywhere we can pay for a beer, we are a bit early. "The bartender informed us we could either wait for the free open bar at cocktail hour or leave the property and come back. After we walked away dumbfounded we were not able to buy a drink the doors leading to the bar that were previously open were closed, I guess to keep the riff raff out lol. On the positive side the venue is beautiful with a wonderful view of Philadelphia but if how your guests are treated is important to you stay far away from this place.
We have been members prior to Trumps purchase. We enjoy the course as it is challenging and similar terrain to Pine Valley. The staff has had very little turnover and which is a testament to their treatment by the mangers. The staff is polite, courteous and accommodating. It has been a great pleasure to get to know many of them theough the years and watch them mature and graduate as they watch and get to know my children. The pool is fabulous and much like a private get away as it is never crowded. The views of Philadelphia are spectacular. The menu Changes with the seasons and it is quite tasty. The kitchen staff are acoomodating when the need arises for dietary limitations. We have had a few parties utilizing the banquet facility and Sharon and Karen are quite professional and knowledgeable. They have always been able to work with what needed to get done. Alyssa the assistant to the general manager is a master of all trades. Shes got her finger in the pulse of the club and can help anything that is needed. Member activities are enjoyable for all from The kids golf camp to the ladies clinic to the member mixers.
#1 we were seated right in front of Dueling Pianos and their speakers. So loud we couldnt even hear the waitress. We requested to be moved and we were. #2 the food left MUCH to be desired. I had the Braciola..looked like it had been made a week ago and left out. Very dry, sauce dry, all in all only took a couple of bites, left the rest. Scallops over lentils not so good either 5 tiny scallops over LOTS of lentils,edible though. The Brazing fish good. The unfortunate thing is we were with a member who felt bad . We did enjoy the music

This is a wonderful venue to get married and have a reception. Sharon is awesome to work with and easy going. Its a big complex so hiding from guests can get tricky before the wedding starts. Everything went really smoothly and we were extremely happy. All and all a perfect wedding!!!!!! Book here if you are considering!!!!
Terrible course, really. Let me tell you. Awful. Mosquitos everywhere. The sun? I got sunburn. The grass? Never even mowed. This grass is fake grass. Not even real grass, pathetic. Theyre using alternative grass. Really sad stuff. Overall, I would not recommend. Make this course great again.
Our wedding at Trump National Philaelphia was amazing! It was a perfect day! Sharon and Karen are wonderful! They made sure everything was perfect and they were there to help throughout the whole process! The food, the view, and everything about this venue was perfect!
Great venue for a wedding reception. The landscape offers beautiful photos, as well as the iconic clock. Food is delicious, staff was on top of everything, and we could see the Philly skyline! *golf course is private, but did not have any issues prior or during.

I think some may be confusing this course with Pine Valley - not quite Pine Valley but extremely nice to play nonetheless. Perfect Upkeep, challenging and beautiful setting. worth every penny
Horrible, the worst. Mosquitos, everywhere. The only things that sucks more than the mosquitos is the food. Stay away youll thank me. Also the Pro shop is full of no talent hacks.
Its not an easy course for someone who isnt a regular golfer-challenging even for a seasoned golfer. Beautiful greens, great food & fantastic service! Would definitely recommend
Or should I say, I loved it when it was Pine Hill golf club.... its a shame that its not open to the public anymore. I think they still do weddings though.
Played here a few times while living in the Philly area, excellent overall experience with a great and well maintained course . Highly Recommend!
I hope everyone realizes the bad ratings were by Trump haters and do not reflect the quality and class of the course, staff and patrons Thanks
Wow..huge place- very impressive wuth fountain & huge rooms to hold any event.. Overlooking all nj &:etc
Went there for a wedding, the food was extremely bland. However thru did have great views.
The place is beautiful and the staff is amazing. Our food was cold is my only complaint.
