Morgan Hill Golf Course
The Morgan Hill Golf Course in Easton has a somewhat misleading name since you'll find more than just hills on this challenging course. Be prepared to face a variety of elevation changes ranging from subtle to dramatic. The golf course has a dramatic design that is carved into a hillside, which makes it a hard course to walk but one that is visually interesting and tough to play. It may not be a layout for the faint of heart but the scenery alone is enough to provide enjoyment. Golfers can enjoy scenic views of the river, but scenic respite is the only break you'll get. There is hardly an even lie to be found and the severely undulating greens will test even the most seasoned golfers. Also, be prepared for a slew of blind shots at Morgan Hill Golf Course.

Challenging, scenic course
This course has some very nice scenic views high on the hill sides looking over Leigh High Valley. Up and down course with some narrow challenges. The par 4s make your shot and club selections different on each hole. Green are difficult, very few flat holes. Started off in the back nine today, the back is a tough 9 and on a hot day like it was today, would have preferred to ease into the round and played the front first. Would have made the round much smoother.
Like playing golf on a roller coaster
When people say hilly it doesn't begin to express the degree of elevation changes on this course, even on the greens themselves. blind shots on almost every hole. If you haven't played the course before you have no idea on many tee boxes where to hit it. If you like to see the course in front of you and the hole you are playing, go somewhere else. That being said, other than a few truly ridiculous elevation drops on the back nine it was pretty fun and in good condition. Bring your A game and it would probably help to have a range finder with a slope app.
Not your typical driver off every tee box
I always enjoyed playing here but stopped coming back 4 years ago after a horrendous 6+ hour round due to slow play and absolutely no pace-of-play enforcement from the course ranger.
Today the course was relatively empty due to it being the 4th of July. Since we got there a little early, the starter let my twosome go off 15 minutes early, which allowed us to avoid being paired up with another twosome (as was on the starter's sheet).
Tee boxes, fairways, and greens were in good to excellent shape. Hole #12 had all tee boxes temporarily located on the front of the sloped fairway, which made the tee shot less than ideal. I'm not sure why all the tee boxes were not being used on this hole as they seemed fine.
When we were putting on #10, we noticed 4 carts/ 2 foursomes leave the clubhouse area and proceed to tee #11. When we got to the tee box, it was 4 husbands and wives who cut in front of our group. I immediately called the Pro Shop and the ranger was there within 2 or 3 minutes. He spoke to the groups in front of us and had them let us play through. Evidently those groups played 10 holes and then ate a sit-down lunch at the clubhouse. Absolutely no golf etiquette for them to jump in front of us. I cannot begin to tell you how appreciative I was for the staff's immediate response to their egregious actions as it was apparent that these 2 groups would be playing extremely slow.
The only negative about the course was that the bunkers were in terrible shape. Some were full of weeds and appear to be unkempt on purpose. However, others had minimal sand, were not raked, and had lots of marble to golf ball-sized rocks in them. When we hit into a trap, we would rake it really well and then drop our ball in the raked sand before taking our shot. Honestly, it really wasn't a big deal as I was only in 2 traps all day.
I would definitely play here again as the greens, fairways, and tee boxes were a huge upgrade compared to most of the other Lehigh Valley courses.
I know this course gets a lot of negative reviews for it's configuration because you cannot (or should not) hit a driver on every part 4. Personally, I enjoy courses like this where some thinking is involved before club selection on some of the tee boxes.
I'll add one more thing, they have a nice GPS mounted in the cart. While I found it extremely useful, the distances can be off by a lot due to the elevation changes on the course. I relied on my slope range finder but still greatly appreciated the cart's GPS.
Hilly with great views
Played here many times before. Always a challenge with the hilly terrain. If you like an easy course, don't come here.
I love this golf course
This is one of my favorite golf courses that is close to where I live. Every hole is different and presents a different challange. This is a difficult course that will test all aspects of your game and expose your weaknesses. If you love a challenge go to Morgan hill you won't be dissapointed
Course is very hilly with great views. Fun to play but very difficult to score if you’re playing out Of the rough. Many blind shots, so it’s not easy to keep it in the short grass. Greens still recovering from aeration, so wait a couple of weeks to consider playing.
Great course will tear you up if you let it odd par 5 tees at 13 th hole
Blind shots, extremely hilly, well kept, friendly and helpful staff. Will be back again!
5 Hour Round
It's frustrating when you are waiting on every hole. You can't get any rhythm going. The group in front of us was dawdling. There are no rangers. This is a tough course, not for beginners. If you are struggling sometimes you have to pick up and move on. Not look at each other for several minutes to discuss "where should I drop" etc. Overall I was unhappy playing this round which was too bad because otherwise I like the course.
