Walnut Lane Golf Course

Welcome to Walnut Lane Golf Course. We invite you to enjoy this hiden gem in the Roxoborough section of Philadelphia. The course sits within the confines of the Philadelphia Parks Department, but is managed by The First Tee of Greater Philadelphia, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing young people with educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf. 

Located within Wissahickon Valley Park lies Walnut Lane Golf Club, a tree-lined golf course designed by Alex Findlay. The golf course opened for play in 1940 and is highlighted by several challenging par 3’s. The unique layout features several holes that area cleverly tucked away in hills and valleys. The undulating greens vary in size and are protected by deep bunkers that make accuracy a must.
