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.

good shape

After an unusual down year last season with conditioning it was great to see new irrigation system going in and the fairways and greens back to good playing shape. the greens were fast and smooth and a delight to putt on.

nice public course

Nice to see some work finally being done by the township since purchase over a year ago. Looking forward to seeing top quality course conditions once all the work is done. Tough par 3 holes and feel the 18th hole is set up wrong for average golfers and course gives little breaks to forward red tees for women.

Great Layout, Quick Pace of Play

Try to play here as much as possible. Can get a little pricey but incredible value for $24 on a hot deal. In great shape for this time of year. Finished the round in 3 hours on weekday afternoon

Friendly Staff

Upon entering the pro shop I was greeted by a person who obviously enjoyed their job. This is important when dealing with the public. You don’t want to start off your round with a negative attitude.

Worth a look

NHV is a typical Country Club design. It has many challenging features, and they love making you fly bunkers on tee shots and approach shots. The course was in great shape for this time of year (but a few of the greens were a bit spotty). Hot deal made it a must play- can’t touch this course otherwise.

Anytime you’re playing in January it’s a great day. Course in good shape for the time of year. Bunkers were a bit rough but it is January. Will play here again.

First Time Playing

Nicely done especially with COVID

The 15 min tee times made the pace really enjoyable. I know you can’t do that all the time, but it was very nice.

Staff was very nice while enforcing the COVID restrictions and created a very relaxed atmosphere.

I’ll be back for sure.

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.
