Played the Olde Course this afternoon with my daughter. Would actually have given 3.5 stars as I would give a course like Rock Manor 4 stars and Cobbs is not on their level. That said, they deserve a better than 3 star rating, most because of the giant improvements that have been made to the course and the friendliness of the staff. We played a late day round and my young daughter had very little experience. They charged me $16 for the cart and no greens fees. We got 16 holes in before it got too dark to finish. I was blown away with how great of shape the greens were in and how true they were rolling. Also they were quick and manicured perfectly. The fairways are coming around and were in playable shape and the rough was at least cut to be rough. Sand traps were full and clean. Infinitely improved from last time I played here. You can really tell the ownership and grounds keepers are trying to turn the course around. The only thing I would complain about was the lack of signs marking the hole numbers and directions to the next hole. Also no food at the moment, due to the recent fire at the clubhouse With 2 courses intertwined in areas it can be confusing without proper markers. But for the money it was wayyyy better than a city course like FDR. Well done and I will likely be back and am glad I decided to give them a go after 15 years of swearing Id never go back.
this is one of my "go-to" courses.(the old course) the course has a wide variety of holes that keeps the round interesting. the staff is really great., and so are the grounds crew. Ive lost things on the course multiple times and i was always able to retrieve it from staff the next round. karakung is a really good course for short game practice. i like to use it as a range, so to speak. its only 19 dollars in the evenings and you can go out and just hit practice shots at greens that are in great condition. its not quite as well kept as the old course, hence the discount but is still very playable.
Dont ever play Krapakung!!! Doesnt deserve to be called a golf course. Would it be that hard to put some grass seed on the damn tee boxes?! Shouldnt be allowed to charge people money to play here. Also, the staff is completely incompetent. "Olde" fairways were next to some of the Karakung holes. They looked "eh." If you are in the city and want to play at a public course, just drive 10-15 minutes longer to a course farther from the city. It would be worth it.
This place is a Hidden Gem within the Philadelphia city limits. They have two courses to choose from and both courses offer an equal challenge no matter your level of play. I recommend the Karakung course as the greens are smaller and tougher to get on. Good luck making par on the "KUNG".
I really enjoy the Olde Course at Cobbs Creek. While the course is not long, it does offer some interesting and challenging holes. Maintenance of fairways and greens is very good. The course has a storied history and the potential to be a great tract with some targeted investment.

Played here in Sept 2011.Worst course I have ever played. Couldnt tell the fairway from the rough.Tee boxes were just dirt. Lovely setting but poorly maintained.Hired clubs and they came out covered in dirt.Clubhouse in need of a severe make over.
Nice course. Problem areas include the cart paths, and the fescue growth is outrageous! The Open courses have nothing on this course. I lost 5 balls that bounced through the fairway and sunk in the 8" to 10" over growth.
The Olde Course is headed in the right direction. Trickiest greens Ive played all year. May not need Driver but you will need to bring your best putting game if you plan to post a good score.
This is a huge public course. Surprisingly well maintained, reasonable price; definitely worth a visit. Would recommend to friends. Only played the Olde Course

this is a historic course and is still a good bang for the buck 42 $ wk end dont try to bet the price any where in the city.. great .....
My sister lives there and its pretty good but has a lot of bugs such as spiders, flys, mosquitos, and many other pest that we all hate
Karakung is much improved. The Tee Boxes are getting better. The fairways are actually starting to look like fairways and not rough.
Wonderful layout. Tight course. Fairways just ok. Greens in Great shape. Would play it again
You got a little wet today but we got our money back well at least to play another round
