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.

Amazing. Can’t wait to go back!

Beautiful course~ at first very intimidating but from the ladies tees it was very manageable. Shorter than I expected. From the blacks, much more challenging~ Great conditions~ well kept~ some divots on the fairways~ they should remind ppl to replace their divots~ but overall amazing! Greens were fast and easier than I expected. Ladies tee boxes were pristine :)

Nice course, good value

I had a good time at White Clay Creek, despite being on cart path only. It seemed to be necessary, but there wasn't that much rain the previous two days so maybe it doesn't drain that well, i don't know. The layout is interesting, but maybe over engineered and forced a bit. Not enough to be unpleasant, though.

Challenging course in great shape, great facilities, great staff

5pm tee time, was still able to just squeak in 18 holes from the black tees. Excellent practice green, short game area and driving range available and complimentary with the round. It had rained all day so the course played a little soft but was still in outstanding shape. The course played from the back tees forces challenging shots even for long hitters. The forward tees plays significantly different than the back tees. All around a fantastic course and the twilight rate offers a better value than any other public courses in the area.

Very humbling course but I love it

Keep it in the fairways and you can score well, but bring your A game because certain holes can gobble up your ball (eg, par 5 15th). Shot placement is a must here.

Gem

White Clay CC is a gem. Very challenging & well kept golf course. It is the best course, I have played this year. I am an avid golfer & I play once or twice a week so this is a Huge compliment. Important to pick the correct tees because there are many force carries & the course plays longer than the score card. Shot 74 because I birdie #9 & #18. Greens roll fast and true. You really have to have your thinking cap on for this course. Suggestions to even improve, there are no sandwiches & restaurant is closed Mon & Tues. Food should be available. With Covid 19, I would not recommend having the young attendants pick up bags & clean clubs. Right now, it is important to have less contact to keep everyone safe. Pre -Covid 19, bag pick up & cleaning clubs is a great touch. Rob, the starter & our cart girl were excellent. I will be coming back. It was worth the drive from Maryland :) Keep Up The Great Job.

Unfortunately Difficult

WCCCC is typically a well maintained course with great amenities. Grass practice range and chipping area use are included with your round or available as a separate rate if you just want to practice. Staff is friendly. Club transfer from parking area by staff and clubs cleaned after your round if you wish. The layout is challenging and tailored to shot makers because of the influence of water on nearly every hole. Excellent value for a late afternoon round, but higher pricing early typical of guest rates for area country clubs. Check it out if you are for a challenge.

Great track

I found this track a really good challenge; the layout was fantastic with good distances between holes, tough bends, streams to think about and fast greens. I'm an 11 handicap and it exposed a lot of my game. This would be a good home course for someone.

The course is very challenging and was in great condition. The only problem I had was the pro shop failed to inform us when making our tee time that two holes were under repair and had been changed to par 3's instead of a par 4 and 5 respectively. This was disappointing.

ALWAYS play here when you get the opportunity

One of the top 5 i can play in the area in my opinion. Cart path only is always tough here, but our twosome finished in 3hrs 40 minutes. I don’t know why there is sand on greens now, it was a little disappointing. Still a great January day to play and always worth it for a deal.

Really solid course....DONT try to walk it

Really solid layout with a lot of mixed challenges. Mostly elevated and narrow greens. Most fairways had plenty of room. Try to play with a local. It helped an awful lot knowing the site lines and yardages, Could have been long day because i would have hit shots that i shouldn't.
Staff was friendly and informative,. A cart girl in January....sweet....wine, beer and shots...perfect together. Would have tried the restaurant but wife was tired and getting tired for the 2 hour drive home. Like to get back in the warmer months. First course i ever played in Delaware in 40 years. Worth it,. Dont try to walk it.....in between tees and greens on some holes would probably add 4 miles to your 7 mile golf walk.Try it...you will enjoy it!
