The John F. Byrne Golf Course, which opened in 1931, was purchased by the City of Philadelphia in the early 1960s and renamed after the famous Philadelphia councilman.

Nestled in and around a valley, the golf course features a variety of tree-lined and open fairways. Several elevated tees and greens accent the rolling terrain, creating dramatic changes in elevation. Torresdale Creek winds its way through the course, coming into play on a total of 10 holes. In addition to the water hazards, picturesque John F. Byrne Golf Course features oversized bunkers that are strategically placed to protect the medium-sized greens.

Designed by Alex Findlay, the par-67 golf course measures 5,193 yards from the longest tees. The course rating is 65, with a slope rating of 107.
