Located in the heart of Philadelphia’s major league sports neighborhood, the South Philadelphia Turf Club is situated next to The Citizens Bank Field, home of the Phillies, The Lincoln Financial Field and Stadium, where the Eagles play, and just blocks from the Wachovia Complex, home of the Flyers and the 76ers. The facility opened on July 16, 1994, quickly becoming a popular stopping place for the city’s sports fans before and after games. In July of 2000, a 9,500 square foot expansion was opened, which offered a glass enclosed dining area with sweeping views of the Stadium to the south and the center city Philadelphia skyline to the north. The 27,000 square foot Turf Club offers high definition, digital monitors. Located off the Packer Avenue exit of I-95, the South Philadelphia Turf Club is easily accessible to both local racing fans and interstate travelers.
