Rating 72.2
Type Public
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.

Great value!

Except for the sudden thunder shower , that held up play for about 30 minutes, this course is very playable for all levels of golfers. The score card illustrated each hole design very well as my wife and i were first time golfers here. Would like to return in the future when the conditions are a little dryer.

Great Course

This is one of my favorite courses. A real shame it is closing. Hope the housing development going in its place serves the community as well as this golf course has served the community and South Eastern PA.

Nice place to play

I really liked the course. We were pretty packed on both sides. May have been because it was Fathers Day and all of the fathers were on the course. We still enjoyed our day on the lynx. The staff and the players were nice and welcoming. A really nice place to play if your up for the challenge. Doc P.
