White Clay Creek Country Club at Delaware Park is a challenging but playable layout that is well known amongst locals. At just over 7,000 yards, the golf course offers a fair amount of challenges. Water hazards come into play on most holes, demanding several difficult forced carries. There are also some spots on the course that can be quite narrow. The terrain is mostly flat but the layout provides enough diversity to appeal to both low and high handicappers. White Clay Creek has a strong reputation not only for the golf course but also for its various amenities, which give it the feel of a private club. Staff assists you with getting your clubs to and from your car and use of the driving range and chipping green are included in the reasonable fee.

Great conditions, pace and value

Perfect weather and great pace for a Friday afternoon - under 3.5 hours as a threesome. Course in great shape, greens fast and true (evidently a tournament the day before). Interesting layout with some good forces carry decisions. More yardage markings on course would help, especially when path only cancels out the gps. Staff couldn't be nicer. Recommended and will come back when in the area.

Too wet/Green s like ice

It hasn't rained in weeks yet the course was extremely wet. The greens were like putting on ice....I'm not a bad putter but even on the last hole, still blowing by the cup when just tapping the ball which was REALLY frustrating and ultimately dampened the round.

Make sure you bring drinks and snacks, there is no clubhouse on the course and although it was a packed day, there was no cart service.

Course layout is challenging with many risk/reward holes.

Great course

Enjoyed a great round of golf with a friend played with another twosome from out of state great company , the course layout is great and very challenging with layups and carries. The course conditions was great especially for the drought that the state of Delaware is had this summer I enjoyed it very much.

Course is challenging, the fairways are very soft which could change ur iron game if you don’t adapt (especially with pitch shots). None of the holes run into each other, you can’t slice or hook a drive out of play and find your ball, you really have to play short and accuarate. Greens are well kept and are speedy!

Quirky course

You need to think on the course. If you want to just bang away, don’t play here. A lot of holes are short but hazards and dog legs prevent the use of a driver. A thinking mans course. Lots of hazards to avoid. Loved it. Really well maintained.
Usually too expensive but found a good deal on GolfNow.

Awesome course

Great course have not played in a while since very pricey, was able to get a great deal on Golf Now. Definitely a private country club feel, a bit stuffy but well worth playing. Course in very good condition, a lot of carry shots specifically with the drives. Only negative is many ball marks on greens golfers not repairing, several on every green. A must play course, high end and very challenging

Best Course in the Area

Wow is all I have to say. This course was something else. When I arrived a cart was driven up to my car and immediately put my bag on it. I went down to the pro shop and was greeted by an extremely friendly staff. I played around 4:15 to get one of the discounted rates but ill get back to that later. I was going solo that day so they asked me to join a group of 3 ahead of me to help with pace of play. Usually if I go by myself I like to play alone to work on my game without pressure but honestly the 3 guys I played with were awesome and definitely helped with how this course was laid out.

The starter was cool and helpful and definitely had a passion for the course. I'm a single digit handicapper but this course was a challenge. Lots of layup shots, water, and holes that will punish you severally. If its your first time out here I suggest playing with someone thats familiar with it. The blues are really challenging at 6500 and they make you work for it. I suggest playing from whites if possible. But they have the ipads on the carts with GPS which helps tremendously for shot selection! So cool for a public course.

As I went through each hole I had a smile on my face the whole time though. Every single hole could have been a signature. Extremely beautiful and could have taken a photo on each hole. The 15th reminded me of 18 at Sawgrass and couldn't resist taking a photo with the sunset. The course conditions were pretty good. I gave it 5 cause they weren't perfect like I was expecting but still nicely shaved fairways and decent speed on the greens (divits are where the problem was). Pace of play was decent but there are some holes where you have to drive at least a half mile to get to them. Its scenic but just is kind of abnormal and I would wish upon no one to walk this course if its hot out.

Now I would recommend everyone to come and play out here. I drove an hour and 20 minutes and I'm returning again this weekend because it was so good. It's pricey in the morning but worth every penny, but if you can come play a twilight round, the price is unmatched really.

Love it!

A Course Worth Joining

If I was going to join a course and not use a GolfNow, this is the course I would join. It checks all the boxes, from the beautiful clubhouse with a great locker room, the terrific practice area for both long and short game, the finely manicured course, to the great 19TH hole and patio.

Fast morning round!

The course was in very good shape. Some bunkers had water in them from rainfall the last few days. The greens rolled fast and the staff was extremely nice. We finished our round under four hours. Challenging course but fair if you don’t spray it all over the place. Definitely will be back!
