Detailed description of Merion Golf Club, West Course

Merion Golf Club is a Private, 36 hole golf facility located in Ardmore, Pennsylvania, a suburb northwest of Philadelphia. The club has two courses,they are: The East Course, and The West Course.

The Merion Golf Club dates from 1896, when members of the Merion Cricket Club (founded in 1865) opened a golf course in Haverford, Pennsylvania. In 1910, the membership decided to build a new course and chose 32-year-old club member Hugh Wilson, a Scottish immigrant, to design it. Merion East opened in September 1912, and the original course was closed. The West Course, also designed by Wilson, opened in May 1914. With the completion of the West Course in May of 1914, Merion became the first club in the nation to boast two 18-hole championship layouts. The Merion Golf Club did not officially separate from the Merion Cricket Club until 1941.

Things to remember at Merion, this is a walking golf course only. Carts are only provided with a written authorization from a doctor due to a medical condition. The use of distance measuring devices (range finders) is also prohibited.

Blue tees: par-70, 5,989 69.2 / 122

White tees: par-70, 5,733 yards, 68.1 / 121

Red tees: par-70, 5,461 yards, 66.7 / 118
