Rating 70.5
Type Public/Resort
Water Gap Country Club has a dramatically hilly terrain that provides a unique and challenging round of golf. Since opening in the 1920s, the course has played host to a number of major tournaments. The links-style layout features lightning fast, undulating greens and seemingly receptive fairways that are fiercely guarded by mature trees. The elevation changes throughout the golf course guarantee that a flat lie will be hard to find and golfers will have to face several tricky blind shots. Water hazards come into play on five holes and there are also strategically placed bunkers to contend with. Water Gap is formidable test of your shot-making skills to say the least, but there are some birdie opportunities available. The signature hole is the par-3 fourth, which plays from an elevated tee to an elevated green.

Worst course I have ever played.

The worst burnt out greens I have ever seen. I wouldn't play again there if it was free.

Worth the golfnow deal cost

I haven't played this course since about 2008-2010. The condition was sub par compared to the last time i played when the course was is good condition. The condition of the course was fair. most of the greens were poor , fairways were not great , nor were the tee boxes. Overall for the price i payed, getting out and playing was absolutely worth the cheap greens fees.

Play somewhere else

I booked this tee time with good intentions. When we arrived at the course you really couldn’t see any holes and the course conditions. In the pro shop the attendant told us the course hadn’t been watered in some time, he offered us a reduced rate to play. The tee boxes were dry with barely any green grass. After 4 holes, we were miserable. We saw no sprinklers, the fairways were bad, and some of the greens were cracked because they were so dry. We decided to leave and after some complaining we were given a refund. Until this place gets some water on it, pay a little more and find someplace better.

Good for practice

I play here about once a year, and each time I realize why I haven't played it more often. Course design is not for me. Elevated tees, elevated greens. somewhat predictable for a mountain course. A number of blind shots, and narrow fairways so if you don't know the course layout you can get into trouble quickly. Fairways have a lot of clover and need aerating badly. Greens were in good shape and putted true. A little slower than my preference but not complaining. Bunkers are an abomination, obviously no maintenance. If you can get on for ten bucks like I did, give it a try.
