Frog Hollow Golf Club in Middletown boasts the title of "best public golf course" in Delaware. The course has a links-style layout that is challenging but still player-friendly enough to appeal to beginners, seniors, and juniors. The layout is wide open and quite forgiving but there are still plenty of hazards with which to contend. There are more than 50 strategically placed bunkers throughout the golf course. Their thoughtful placement makes up the bulk of the layout's challenges. There are ponds that come into play on six holes as well as tall native grasses that appear along the fairways and greens. The wind is often a factor on the course too and will test your accuracy even further. Frog Hollow Golf Club's par 3s and par 5s are manageable but the par 4s will test even the best players.

Course is in good shape except for the sand traps.
Also, pin placements are not player friendly.
Either on side of hill, or less then 15’ from edge of green. This effects pace of play because consistent 3 and 4 putts. If you want to increase rounds, it is important to create pin placement that is accessible. Customers / players like playing where they can score well.
Making the course unnecessarily difficult is foolish. For the player and to optimize sales and rounds played.

Favorite course to play

Wide open, and in good shape. most of the bunkers are mud this time of the year, but everything else is very good shape, hole 6 backs up a bit, and 7 is no carts at the time which slows things down, but no delays for me. everything moved as should, on cold windy day.

Coming Back to Excellent Condition

Have not played this course in over two years because of the previous conditions. However, was told it has come back to being in very good shape. I was pleasantly surprised to find it in very good condition. Fairways were only spotty in a few places. Tee boxes were very good. The greens were just about perfect. A couple had very minor spots but nothing that would cause a putting problem. One negative was the pace of play and lack of a ranger, Would not have a problem recommending this course, and would most definitely put it back on the list to play again.

Bbgk

Nice course. Bunkers are rough - many unplayable. Wish they had a ranger to speed up play sometimes.
I will play there again. Greens are a bit inconsistent though.

Show play, no rangers

Great layout, very pretty course, lots of sand. But could be better maintained. Play was very slow at over 5 hours. And no Rangers to keep people moving. But value was certainly there for fall golf.

Continues to improve

Kudos to the management for bringing this course back after their loss of irrigation the summer of 2019 that devastated the course. Tee boxes, fairways, and greens are now excellent. The only reason I would not give this a 5 star rating is that the bunkers and sand traps are still lacking some quality sand but management has been diligently improving then and hopefully this will continue.

Turned around.

This course has always had a great layout but in recent years course conditions had gotten very poor. I was amazed at the overall course condition improvement. The greens were pure and fast even after a rainy day. The fairways were great and the rough thick. A very enjoyable round.
