Having belonged to a private club for many years, I am "spoiled" and find Downingtown the next best thing. I've yet to play there and find the fairways and greens in anything but above average condition. The staff is always cordial and accomodating and the pace of play enforced makes for a totally positive round. Not necessarily a course for "the weekend hacker", but maybe that's what makes it worth playing among other public courses. My wife has discovered that a gift card for a couple of rounds here makes for a great last minute gift or "stocking stuffer"!

Would travel: 10-20 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Ranks with the best in this price level, Best course in the area

Downingtown is a good design with variation form hole to hole. An added advantage that I like, you can walk this course.
