Middletown Country Club has been one of Bucks County's major golfing destinations for more than a century. Originally designed as a nine-hole golf course in 1913 by Scottish architect Alexander Findlay, the second nine was added three years later. In the many years since opening, the golf course has undergone renovations by both George Fazio and Stephen Kay. This tough course is proof that a layout doesn't have to be 7,500-plus yards to be a challenge. Although the Middletown C.C. golf course plays to a seemingly modest yardage of 6,217 from the back tees, the rolling terrain provided by its location in the scenic Neshaminy Valley makes the course seem much longer. The small greens have plenty of undulations and you'll also be faced with a variety of uphill, downhill, and sidehill lies. There are also towering trees looming above the fairways and water comes into play throughout the golf course as well.

After moving to the area a few years ago, we have grown to love this course. We routinely play in 3-1/2 to 4 hrs (midweek) ahead of their 4:15 pace and that can include walking (it's hilly). As others commented, course and GREENS knowledge is very helpful - 1st timers need to relax and give it another shot - you'll have more fun 2nd time around. Enjoy the beautiful, massive trees and fast greens. Nice bar to watch golf, Phillies or Eagles.

Recently took a chance that the heavy rains would hold off and maybe get a quick round in for it's been awhile since i played here. For once things went my way. The course is in great shape No problem with the tees, fairways, greens or bunkers. For those who haven't played here before don't be fooled by the yardage, In my humble opinion there are at least 7 holes you are going to need a solid drive (plus 220-230) to have a decent chance to be on the green in regulation and that 's from the whites.This place is as hilly as it is quirky and I mean that in a good way. I'll be back soon.

I know its been raining...but our two groups lost more balls JUST BARELY OFF OF THE FAIRWAY!

And, please, all 8 of us are fairly decrnt putters; bit when the hole is cut at a 45 degree angle on a severe slope...ridiculous! Read USGS suggestions on hole placements...

Played there on Sunday for the first time. Very hilly course and a little odd. A few par 4's under 300 yards and several over 400. And only one par 5. Greens were in really nice shape. Quick and challenging. If you don't like sloping greens skip this course. Course was in pretty decent shape overall, but was a bit shaggy toward the end. I'd generally have given it a 3-4 star rating but the horrifically slow pace of play makes it a "never again" for me, at least on a weekend. There was nobody on the course moving people along. Plus it seems "par for the course" that groups wait on the several short par fours for the group ahead to clear the tees before teeing off. This was true even for the group playing in front of us that had no golfer who hit the ball more than than 175 off the tee. My round was 5 hours and I didn't get to play 17 or 18 because of a commitment I had that I never thought would conflict with this round of golf.

Hello, thank you for taking the time to provide us your feedback regarding your recent experience. We are sorry to hear that you experienced slow pace of play that day. We had a team match through an association that certainly was slowing down the pace of play. They have since been addressed and will be given a warning as well as told to skip a hole if they start to lag behind. We, do not in any way condone slow pace of play and we are sorry this made for a poor experience. We hope that you will give us another chance in the future.

It was probably one of the coldest days of the year to play golf. The course was in overall fair condition but finding a ball even when it in the fairways was difficult. I happened to lose 5 on this date. I do plan to return on a day in the future to play another round and hopefully score better.

Greens were in beautiful shape but much faster than I am used to. Staff has done a magnificent job keeping the fallen leaves out of play and were actively continuing to do so during play. Course was nearly empty when I played so I played alone and at my own pace. Several very scenic holes. Very enjoyable experience
