Directions

Merion Golf Club is located at 450 Ardmore Avenue in Ardmore, Pennsylvania.
Merion's West Course is located at 300 Ellis Road, Haverford, Pennsylvania.

To reach the Club, follow these directions or use Google Maps.

Please read directions carefully, as a portion of Ardmore Avenue has closed for construction lasting approximately one year beginning July 15, 2019.
A portion of Ardmore Avenue near the Club entrance is closed while the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation completes a necessary bridge replacement project between Haverford Road and the Clubhouse driveway.  Motorists are being detoured various ways around the Club, which may cause delays on some of the neighborhood's surrounding roads.  Please allow for extra time to arrive for your tee time.  The directions below can be used as a guide, but the Club recommends guests consult their host member or a GPS for the best route for your visit to Merion.  Please feel free to contact the Club at (610) 642-5600 for assistance.
