Thanks For The Memories

FDR Golf Course will permanently close operations on October 31, 2019. The decision to close the course was made by Philadelphia Parks & Recreation because the course is no longer sustainable due to frequent flooding and unprofitable operations. After October 31, 2019, golfers may use the City’s other public golf courses: Cobbs Creek and Karakung, Walnut Lane, John Byrne and Juniata.

The golf course closure will add up to 150 more acres of park for expanded public use and ecological restoration. Philadelphia Parks & Recreation is working with First Tee of Greater Philadelphia to find an appropriate way for it to continue its youth golf programs at FDR Park. The Master Plan also includes an option for a public golf driving range.

If you would like to know more about the decision to close FDR Golf Course please contact Philadelphia Parks & Recreation at parksandrecreation@phila.gov.

The Course
FDR Golf Club, the Golf Philly course nearest Center City, was established in 1940 and is named after the country's 32nd President - Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

The 6,004-yard layout provides a fun yet challenging experience for players of all golfing abilities.  With spacious fairways and large-sized greens, FDR utilizes the surrounding natural wetlands as well as a canal that runs through the course to provide unique challenges.  

FDR is enrolled in Audubon International's Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses to ensure that the course helps to protect our local environment, conserve natural resources, and provide wildlife habitats.
