Gilbertsville Golf Club in New Hanover Township is tucked away among the rolling hills of Montgomery County. The 27-hole public course is divided into three nines, called the Red, White, and Blue. The Red and White were the club's original 18 holes when it first opened in 1967, and the Blue nine was added 30 years later. Being one of the older nines, the White Course has a more traditional layout with small, mostly flat greens and wide fairways lined with trees. It's not the most formidable round at Gilbertsville G.C. but it does have a few challenges in store. There are some tricky doglegs and while water may only come into play on two holes, one of these -- the par-5 second -- will leave a lasting impression with a carry over a lake and a meandering stream that edges the right side and then cuts in front of the green.

Great layout and the 3 nines insure you don’t get board. Since this was the first warm day there were lots of rookies out who lacked course etiquette ie a twosome that took selfies after ever shot, foursome that spent 10 minutes looking for drives and then putted like they were playing the Masters except none of the putts went in

First time playing here. Course was in good shape, fairways were clean, and greens rolled well. Great value with the Golf Now booking. The Red was easy to walk, as was the White. Staff was very friendly. We played the blacks on the Red course and blues on the White course and it was a nice challenge. I definitely recommend.

The problem was the issue that only 1 of the 3 9 holes was open. Course did not update Golfnow on the condition. Doing the winter GolfNow should confirm that the course is open. Before posting the HOTDEAL

Booked in advance - nothing on website indicating only ONE of the three 9 hole layouts would be open. Drove there in time for tee time - had to play the Blue Nine twice - other two courses closed - course was extremely wet - some flags not in and conditions were AWFUL! We should of been comped for the round - no fun! From a "customer service" viewpoint this was a disaster!

When we arrived we saw the sign saying cart path only. We were informed it rain the night before even though 20 miles away where we live we didn't have any rain I accept that nothing you can do about it however when we get out on the course and we played the red and blue the courses were not wet whole number 7 on the red had some water along the cart path but the blue course in particular was not wet. I did complain to the gentlemen taking tee times when I turn the car again and he was sympathetic and understanding but he doesn't make the rules. I believe it because it was a cold windy day and they had only maybe 12 to 15 players out on the course they shut it down for that reason. I'm sympathetic to Course Maintenance and keeping the course nice but it turned our round of golf into a mess. The other golfers on the course by the way were taking their carts into the fairways so for that reason I don't think we'll be back

I played the white-red course. Overall the course was in good shape. However the greens were just aerated, so I thought the price should have been reduced a little. Worst part was how crowded it was, at every tee box we had to wait for the group ahead of us, who was waiting to tee off because the group ahead of them was waiting for the group ahead of them to get off the green. And this happened on almost every hole. I can't blame slow players for this mess, it was just overbooked.

It is difficult to rate a course when we were told to only play the white due to an event on the other two. Would have been great to know before we got there. Well, the starter was great and allowed us to play 5 holes on the red loop after the event cleared out at 5:20pm.

So, this course has some interesting holes that were challenging primarily due to effective layout and some cross fairway hazards. Pretty course right now but greens had just been aerated and sand topped so greens will improve.

Some tough par threes and several simple par fours. Overall, challenging from blue tees.

We had fun in the end and will go back. Thanks to the starter for helping out.
