HISTORY

Cobb’s Creek Golf Club is site of the first public golf course in the Greater Philadelphia area and, today, houses two 18-hole layouts - "The Olde Course" and "The Karakung Course."

The Olde Course is the crown jewel amongst Philadelphia’s courses, having been nationally ranked as the #6 Best Municipal Course in by Golfweek Magazine. Designed by renowned course architect Hugh Wilson (architect of the famed Merion-East course in nearby Ardmore), the Olde Course is a mature tree-lined golf course that was established in 1916.

Cobb’s Creek has another distinction as well - it served as host to the 1928 USGA Amateur Public Links tournament and a PGA Tour event, the 1955 Philadelphia Inquirer Open.

he Karakung Course was originally designed by Alan P. Corson and A. H. Smith. Built initially as an 11-hole course to help alleviate the large number of golfers playing the Olde Course. It became aparent how important that decision was because by 1929, over 120,000 rounds of golf alone were played at both the Cobb’s Creek "Olde Course" and "Karakung Course".
