Detailed description

Sunnybrook Golf Club is a Private 18 hole golf course located in Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania.

Sunnybrook Golf Club first opened for play in 1915. The course was designed by Donald Ross.

In 1954, a combination of circumstances (not the least of which was the impending new Route 309 which obliterated the famous 5th green) caused the club to seek a new location.

A beautiful 135-acre site was found – the old William Disston farm, which was purchased in December 1954. The new course opened in 1956 was designed by William Gordon and his son David. Earlier in his career, William had supervised course construction for Willie Parks, Jr. and Donald Ross. He started his own company shortly after Ross’s death and developed a national reputation with work such as Saucon Valley’s famed Grace Course.

In 2000 and 2001 the golf course received an architectural upgrade, under the direction of the nationally recognized design team of Hurdzan and Fry.

Sunnybrook Golf Club hosted the 1971 United States Senior Men's Amateur Championship and was also the site of the 1978 United States Women's Amateur Championship. In 2005, the Club hosted the Pennsylvania Open.

Par for the course is 71. From the back tees the course plays to 6,944 yards. From the foward tees the course plays to 5,074 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 10, a par-5 that plays to 559 yards. The shortest hole at Sunnybrook Golf Club is # 15, a par-3 that plays to 164 yards from the back tees.
