Perched on a hilltop, the Inniscrone Golf Club clubhouse is an enchanting colonial structure made of stone walls with a white porch and columns. But that's not the only feature that draws inspiration from the past. Carved through the rolling hills of Chester County, the 18-hole, par 70 course conjures an old world feel with fairways threaded through mature trees, mounds, and thick rough. The layout also reflects strategic course design, especially on the par-four 18th hole. Though only 350 yards from tee to green, the signature finishing hole plays into an elevated green guarded by a gauntlet of bunkers, like the secret lair of a paranoid greenskeeper.

Cleaved into a pristine expanse of rolling hills and dense woodlands, Chisel Creek Golf Club’s 18-hole course gently rises and falls across 6,203 yards of moderately challenging terrain. Large, undulating greens supply the bulk of the difficulty at the par 70 course, complemented by tight tree lines and dramatically sloped terrain that forces more awkward stances than a middle school dance. A duo of duffers can loop the lush labyrinth astride a nimble golf cart before retiring to the Creekside Grille to refuel with a homemade chicken-salad sandwich (a $5.50 value) or a zesty buffalo-chicken wrap (a $6.50 value).
Rolling hills, wooded terrain, and shimmering waterways serve as the canvas upon which Beckett Golf Club’s 27-hole, 9,577-yard golf complex shines. The swath of verdant playing grounds forms three distinct nines that golfers mix and match to create varied 18-hole rounds. The longest layout, the blue course, confronts players with bends and jumps in the form of dogleg fairways and water hazards on three holes. A fast-starting swing is a must for golfers starting on the red course, where the first hole—a 498-yard par 5—is also the layout’s most difficult, bending sharply to the left with a lush patch of trees that prevents shortcuts and golf-cart drag races. The shortest of the three nines, the white course puts water in play on two holes and revels in the rolling fairways and medium-size greens that characterize the entire 27-hole layout.
There are a number of ways to enjoy the game of golf without hitting the links, and Tee It Up Golf provides just about all of them. Its two-level 52-stall driving range accommodates seasoned veterans as well as newcomers developing their own swing using Tee It Up's rental clubs. Kids can set out on the 18-hole mini-golf course or enroll in a summer golf camp to learn to navigate the world of golf proper. For golfers longing for faraway links, the facility's golf simulator allows you to tee off or yell at birds on digital versions of 30 courses from around the world.
