Length 6329 yards
Slope 126
Rating 70.9

Northampton Valley Country Club has been a family-owned golf course since first opening in 1963. It is well known among locals as one of the Greater Philadelphia area's best courses. The layout has a classic design with tree-lined fairways and gently sloped greens. Several strategically placed bunkers lurk along the greens and there are a few water hazards that come into play as well. The par-70 golf course is a manageable 6,400 yards from the back tees. It's a traditional design that is player friendly enough for all skill levels but there are risk-reward opportunities that will appeal to low handicappers. In addition to the golf course, Northampton Valley is popular for its practice facility. The driving range allows for long game practice as well as a chance to hone your iron skills, and the 10,000 sq. ft. putting green has a sand bunker.

Course Needs Work

This course needs quite a bit of work. Many of the tee boxes are ripped up; the traps have little to no sand and lots of rocks; greens are pitted with ball marks and rot. Most of the cart paths are very beaten up. The fairways are ok however. The best aspect to this course are the staff. Very friendly and helpful., Overall a little too rough, even with the reasonable twilight green fee.

Zero golf educate from the ground crew

Ground crew is rude and inconsiderate. The course booked an golf outing without telling me. The first 9 holes we on a pace of a 3 hour round. The outing delayed us and it took us 2 hours to finish the back 9.

Bunkers were terrible!

The bunkers either had no sand or were filled with so much water you couldn't find your ball. I understand we had a lot of rain the previous day but this was ridiculous. Nice layout and a good deal with a Golf Now Hot Deal.

WET DAY

Rain was scheduled to end at 11:00. We started at 11:30 with moderate rain that continued for an hour+, soaked grips, flooded greens. All four of us enjoyed ourselves regardless. Each player lost multiple shots to the conditions. Sun finally came out.

Over BOOK !

When we arrived we were told 1140 teatime was on time. The problem was there was a small allocation of 30 people I don’t think that’s a small outing I just think they’re overbooked ! we got for the 14th hole and quit . There was two sometimes three groups on each of the tees on the back nine. That’s not acceptable . The Course is very nice and the greens had really good pace

Good Local coarse

Played here for the first time and I wasn’t disappointed despite playing after two hellish days of rain. That being said, it was cart path only which always make the round a little longer and some of the cart paths are pretty rough and damaged to say the least. The coarse itself was wet but surprisingly not terrible. The best feature were the well manicured greens: true and fast ! The only thing that bothered me was the grounds crew. We played early at 06:50 and they were all over the place, which is ok they have a job to do. The part that bothered me was that they had no courtesy. No stopping and standing off to the side on your approach shots to the green - they acted like you weren’t even there. They look like a bunch of thugs with no regards for the rules of etiquette for the game. Other than that, great round. I’m looking forward to playing again in drier conditions.

Extremely Slow Play

We teed off at 1130 AM, at 430 PM only finished 15 holes. Had to quit since it was so slow. Horrible round of golf.

Decent Course for Folks in Newtown!

Enjoyed playing with my father. Staff were accommodating when I wanted to add him to my tee time. No interruptions during our play which... could be slow for folks just getting out for the first time. Wasn't crazy about the lakes. It's usually one or two holes to carry over a lake on a typical course. This course has about five, and one's a par 3! The greens are fast, so have a good short game! Overall, I can see myself coming back for round 2!

Potential

The course needs a lot of work. Cart paths are in bad shape. Bunkers need sand and overall the course needs attention. All day saw only one worker. Hope township gives them a decent budget. Also can use a management company to run things. Course could be a great one . Right now so so.

The Course was in great shape

The day after 3 days of rain the course was in great shape. It was cart path only but no much water on the course. Greens were in good shape.

Great Course

Northampton Country Club is a great course for a great price. The course is long and the fairways are in pristine condition. There are plenty of bunkers around the greens to make it even more challenging.

NVCC part 2: Nice track

I first played Northampton Valley CC in May 2017. Then, as now, I think it’s a very nice track.
This time around, however, the greens weren’t quite as perfect, having been aerated not long ago. Also, although the bunkers looked good, they didn’t have enough depth of sand; I chunked into some mud just below the sand surface twice.
(Downer: A four-person scramble team in front of us was very slow, led to a 5-hour round.)
Good value for my $27 Hot Deal.

improving

The new owner, Northampton Township, is not sparing anything in upgrading this facility. Currently the greens and firm and fast after aeration. On course upgrades are being done to bunkers and new cart paths are coming. Pace of play is monitored although it is too early in the season where the golf course isn't packed to get a read on that. Grill Room was upgraded as well for drinks and food before or after a round. Looks like it will be a process but expect with continuing upgrades this will be a first class facility.

Needs Improvement

This course has potential, but the township really needs to upgrade the conditions. It is early in the season, so I am hoping it improves for peak season.
