Designed by Brian Ault, the verdant appearance of the 18-hole layout at Wyncote Golf Club has been described as “a lush carpet of bent grass covering the entire course”.
There's no question that anyone heading to play Wyncote will get the best of service from an attentive staff and an equal element on the course conditioning side which is very well presented. The main lacking issue is an architectural style up to the task in matching the other two aforementioned areas.
That's not say there's nothing worth remembering. The shared green with the two par-5's at the 1st and 10th is a good touch. But for the most part the holes are simply sprawled out over a large canvass with large houses occupying most of the other available ground.
The general lament for public course players is the inability to have quality turf. That's not the case with Wyncote. While the chassis looks grand there's nothing really under the hood to really hold one's attention.
