The Architects Golf Club is a unique layout that honors legendary course designers including Donald Ross, A.W. Tillinghast, and Alistair Mackenzie. Each hole is named after a famous designer, beginning with Old Tom Morris. The opening par 5 pays homage to St. Andrews' designer through the use of the existing features as hazards such as the rock wall and the sloping hillside that the green is deftly carved into. One of the most memorable holes is the 13th, another par 5 that will give you a taste of what it's like to play Augusta. This Alistair Mackenzie-inspired hole offers many risks and rewards. Golfers will face fairways bunkers and a pond on the left and then a creek that runs diagonally in front of the triple-tiered green. Position is the key to maneuvering this tough hole.

Over priced and bad policies

Overall the staff is friendly, so not a review on them. The course was meticulous when I started playing it a decade ago. Was overpriced then, but worth it on occasion. Now it is not worth the pricing, and to make it worse some even the range (was great) is not worth it anymore. AFTER putting hundreds of dollars on the card, they changed the natural grass area to members only and put a dirty old mat on a cement walkway for anyone else. I can't imagine paying a membership for a course not worth the $118 they are charging individually. After the range cards are done, and a few gift cards remaining, I am more than likely done with this course. I can play courses just as nice, some better manicured, twice for that price by driving 3 miles to Easton PA. I can hit off a mat on my patio and save the range card as well. One positive, through the covid they have absolutely done a good job managing the carts/staff/distancing etc. And again, always friendly. Shame on the policy and pricing.

very nice

Great day for November weather. Course was in great shape. Challenging holes with a ton of variety. Chance to use all the clubs in your bag. Worth the price in the early winter weather. Greens were good and the fairways were very nice. Recommend getting out before the snow.

Great Fall Golf...

Course was empty thanks to the rain the past couple of days...cart path only, but we were happy to get the extra work in!

Greens were imacculate and this continues to be a challenging course off the Blues - Golds would be very tough in these conditions..

Some renovations limiting club house use, but not a concern for us.

Finished in 3 1/2 hours, even with the cart path only rule..when it's this pace, a truly great day out and excellent value...

Great time in the wind

It was very windy the day we played with the wind moving the ball sometimes 20 to 30 yards on our drives. The condition of the course was so nice this didn't effect us at all. Will definitely come back. One of the nicest coused in the area.

Worth the Ride

I live 1 1/2 hours away from this course, nice ride, and the course looked great, with great views of the area. As a single, joined with,3 gentlemen, had a good time. Every hole was different, and greens in good shape got quicker as they dried from the morning dew.
If one has the opportunity, I recommend this course.

great course

would highly recommend! we had a makeshift "tournament" occupying 12 tee times in front of ours, they played very slow but the staff rode around doing their best to keep pace while also letting my group and other groups behind know what was going on and what they were doing to try and get it moving better. course itself is awesome, a lot of fun and beautiful scenery.

Great variety

This was my first time playing this course, and oh what a beauty! Course conditions were fantastic. Tea boxes, fairways and greens all in great shape. The greens themselves were fastThis was my first time playing this course, and oh what a beauty!
Course conditions were fantastic. Tea boxes, fairways and greens all in great shape. The greens themselves were fast and true.
I think the best thing about this course is the variation in the different holes. As the course name implies, each hall is designed after a different classic golf architect. What this means to the player is that each hole has a different character. You won't get bored playing this course.As the course name implies, each hall is designed after a different classic golf architect.
