Built in 1916, Cobbs Creek’s Architectural pedigree is unparalleled, holding the unique distinction as one of only two golf courses collaborated on by the complete Golf School of Architecture; the other course to hold this distinction is Pine Valley. Cobbs Creek features the iconic 3rd hole, which served as the model for the Bobby Jones’ Grand Slam of Merion’s 11th hole. Moreover, Cobbs boasts an epic final eight-hole stretch that will provide prospective tournament viewers with a dramatic ending that will rival any finish in golf.
In the proud spirit of Philadelphia Architectural legacy, world-renowned architects and natives Gil Hanse and Jim Wagner will restore the course back to its Golden Age legacy, complete with a major tournament composite routing. The significant footprint of Cobbs Creek will provide a compelling test of golf for the daily player, and an outstanding fan experience for tournament spectating, corporate development, and hospitality, with easy access to multiple transportation options.
