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.

Average course but strange price practice s

Walked on and Played at 2:30 pm. They charged $30/pp. Later found out from a friend that they list the green fee for twilight Monday - Sunday as $26. Interesting how money hungry they are.

New owners improve the course

The town took over this course last fall. They put a lot of work and effort into making this course great again. If you get a chance I recommend that you play it.Ryan the gentleman inside was very friendly. The gentleman that was getting the carts was extremely helpful. And the guy that was the starter couldn’t have been nicer. Great experience the greens are awesomely fast for this time of year and the course is in very good shape too. Give it a try you won’t be disappointed yes I’ve read a lot of reviews on Golf Now and a lot of them are not so good I don’t know where some of these golfers rate the courses but believe me you can’t trust How they view them

Nice afternoon

Slow round due to the Veterans Day crowd. But not a bad day. Teed off at 12 noon and finished after 4:30 PM. The greens are fast with a few bad spots left over from the summer beating but it does look like they are repairing the bad spots.

Some wind, chilly, winter is coming soon. Lots of leaves on the ground but that is the time of the year that it is. Fairways and greens were pretty well clear. Greens were running fast

Maybe next year

To be fair: We had a nice round,
The good: fair price bc of hot deal, no one in front of us so 3:45 hour round, nice layout.
Looked like lotta staff trimming/ working.
and trying to
The bad: conditions inconsistent. Apparently wonky irrigation system led to issues, but new ownership ( private to now municipal) plans to invest in course. Greens are splotchy, a few tee boxes pretty poor. Some traps fine, others poor. Can’t understand why cart path holes not filled, even with gravel as temp fix.

I’d pass on fall play but definitely give course another chance next year.

Bad shape

Overall course is in bad shape. Greens had a bunch of patches and burnt out. Fairways the same. Was not worth the top dollar they want to play. I played this course many times and loved it that's why I came back but this time might think twice before I do.

Course is a bit above average.

A couple of greens need work. Some of the tee boxes are bare. Cart paths are very bumpy and could use redoing.
