#Back9Philly: Back9Network’s Philly Golf Course

Philadelphia, so full of history and culture, plays host to the U.S. Open starting June 13. The resplendent East Course at the Merion Golf Club sits in Ardmore, a suburb just west of Philadelphia, and will put on the famed major for the fifth time. That you probably already know.

What you may not be aware of is why the entire city of Philadelphia is just as magnificent.

Surely you’ve heard of the Liberty Bell. Or tasted a cheesesteak. Or seen one of the five “Rocky” movies. But are you privy to the Xfinity Live Center? How about the city’s best bars and restaurants?

These are the aspects of “Philly” we want you to discover, in addition to better understanding the lifestyle side of Philadelphia and the U.S. Open. So we’re going to take you through our Back 9 of Philadelphia — nine sites in Philly that you absolutely must know more about. So when the attention of America’s sports world descends on the Merion Golf Club, you’ll be full of familiarity.

Enjoy, then, the Back9Network’s Philadelphia golf course.
