Located just south of Allentown, Pa., Locust Valley Golf Course is less than hour from Philadelphia and the Poconos and only 15 minutes from the New Jersey border. The course is player friendly enough for high handicappers to approach with confidence but there are a few challenges in store as well. The 6,504-yard layout is a manageable length but there are still a few holes that will test your distance. The terrain is mostly flat though there are a few subtle contours that can be tricky. The fairways have a lot of variation with some that are wide and forgiving and others that are tighter and demand greater accuracy. You'll also have to watch out for the occasional water hazard. Locust Valley is not the most challenging golf course in the area, but it's one of the best values you'll find in town.

Goodbye Locust Valley

First time playing the course. I’ve had better and worst experiences for $50. Don’t know that I would take the 1.5 hour ride from South Jersey again but doesn’t matter much because in 8 days the course will be leveled for homes.

Decent for the price

This course used to be pretty nice . The course is very nice but the neglect of the bunkers is upsetting and the lack of snack bar and facilities being taken care of is disheartening. If the cared about more this course could be much nicer and busier

Not Gone Yet

Another good round at Locust. Tees and fairways look good. Green are nice but slow slow. Traps are all filled with water. Overall, a good round.

you get what you pay for

i’ll come here when i’m not hitting well and just want to get out and not worry about scoring. Conditions aren’t too good, but not too bad, the layout causes you to watch out for a lot of tee shots coming at you, so be careful. Overall you get what you pay for, it’s also kind of in the boonies, lol

Liked the lay out

Tees were rough, sand traps not worked in weeks and rough was high ( spent to much time searching for balls a couple of yds off fairways).

First Time Playing

First time playing this course and I will be back. The price was very fair at only 20 dollars and the course was in good shape. We just had a lot of rain but it didn't bother me. As a new player this wasn't too challenging so it was good practice but there was enough difficulty for experienced players too.

Nice pace of play

Played mid day on Sunday in a twosome. Moved with a good pace until the last few holes. Course was in good shape overall, traps could use a little work with all the rocks in some of them. Always liked the layout of the course. There are a few trees that could use a trim as well - affected some approach shots.

Nice layout

Nice layout. Greens need to be mowed and rolled. Few cigaret butts around greens and almost no used syringes in the well-designed bunkers.

Nice Course for All

Locust Valley was surprisingly in good shape. I'm glad they kept it open for another season, and are taking pride in maintaining it. It's a great course for hackers, and there is enough variety to keep it interesting for lower handicaps.
