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 TLC

Tee boxes, fairways and select greens not in great shape. Lots of bare spots. People I played with are regulars and said the course suffered a lot over the past month.

old and tired

The golf course itself is a little old and tired and perhaps it needs a face lift more than just conditioning, that has not been the greatest the last two years. Nothing has been done to it in years. Start with adding tee areas and go on to rebuilding bunkers that drain and will hold sand and can be maintained not turn into hard pan. Design wise I am sure a course designer could spruce it up.

Needs Work

The greens were in relatively good shape except they had been recently punched, sanded and rolled. This make it quite difficult to judge the speed. Maybe in a few weeks that will get sorted out.
The fairways and rough were in good shape.
Some of the tee boxes were the worst I think I have ever seen. Not that big a deal and probably a victim or priorities.
Starter was friendly. Let's see, we went out behind a man and his grand-daughter and several foursomes of high school players. Fortunately, the HS'ers only played nine. Still we got around in decent time.

need combo tees

Course needs to set up combo tees for white and gold. Many holes are playable for average golfer from white tees but a handful are too long. At least two of the par 3 holes are too long along with perhaps five par 4s. The two par 5's could be on that list as well. Crabgrass on many tees a mess but fairways and greens are good.

good course...

I found this course online as it was only 30 minutes from my home and was presently surprised. Good condition, pretty straight forward, not much trouble to encounter (except for an almost unfair ending par 3 on 18), ranger keeping the pace at the end of 9, just an enjoyable track, would highly recommend.

It's OK, but....

Overall it was not that good for the money you pay. The T boxes were not that good, Some were overgrown with crab grass and they were not mowed. Others were not level, so when you were getting ready to T off, you could feel you were not balanced. Then there were those that we not even mowed or they were over soaked and mushy. The Greens were in really bad shape, not rolled, torn up, full of divots (people have not repaired), not cut right, some areas were cut too short, dirt showing. When you putted the ball bounced all the way to the whole.Fairways were the best part and that was not per the reputation of the course. Overall the course looks like they are not caring for the course and shutting down for winter. Not good, questionable if I would play there again.

Not the best golf experience

The grass was very high, the pace was slow. Only got in 11 holes due to holdups.

Improving conditions

Since the course went from a family owned facility (YOU NEED TO ALTER YOUR PREVIEW) to being township owned the physical facility has slowly showed signs of improving in conditioning and upkeep of the course. The greens are smooth and fast. Hoping at some point bunkers get rebuilt and filled with sand and cart paths are redone.

Phenomenal

We had the first tee time at 6am and played from the back tees. The gentleman managing the carts and the starter were great and even got us out a few minutes early. I'm aware this course was once a private club and it shows. The tee boxes and greens were in fantastic shape. The greens rolled true and fast but they also held a shot as well. It made for great scoring opportunities. There are some shot maker holes that were tight and tree-lined which was fun and challenging. I intend to return very soon.

Almost There

Nice, fun course. The overall rating has to be dinged for the condition of the bunkers (not enough sand/maintenance in many of them) and some of the greens (a few where there had been patches of sod replaced resulting in oddly long grass). At the Hot Deals price on GolfNow, definitely worth playing. Outstanding pace of play, I haven't had an issue in any of my visits here.
