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.

This is a stunning course, no matter how good you are , you will loose a dozen balls and wont break 100 the first time. Come with that expectation and realize what tour players have to contend with from tees that are a lot longer than the ones the regular public and weekend warriors play from.

If you come with those expectations, you will enjoy it to the MAX.

Great course layout. A lot of challenging holes. Greens were a little spotty but overall in good condition. Cart paths were kind of all over the place. Went on Saturday afternoon and had no pace of play issue. Cart GPS is a cool feature. I would play again and recommend.

Course nice layout as really do not see another hole , which nice look like greens where coming back as seem like might had little burn out on greens , but rolled fairly good.the course is not for walkers as long way in between lot holes, also cart person. Could make around little quicker as once tee off do not return to clobhouse until end round

The gentleman at the desk seemed upset i had a golfnow teetime. Luckily the starter was cool and let me go off solo bc there was NO ONE on the course, even tho desk man told me it was busy. Course wasnt in great shape but was nice....difficult too. They need more signs since i got lost 3x's due to backtracking on paths. Overall...so so with no desire to return.

Course conditions were not perfect but given the extended winter it was in very good shape. I want to commend the staff. I was paired with golfers playing the course for the first time and two of them were late to the tee. The starter was particularly gracious in how he handled the situation and we simply swapped tee times with the group behind us. And, although we fell behind after several holes, we were NOT hounded by the ranger about pace of play, which may have ruined the day. The rest of the staff was very attentive and made us feel very welcome. Thank you to all!

Full of natural beauty, but don’t get distracted. Tough track. Long par 3s. Par 5s have length and tough lay ups to target. Fair amount of blind shots. Carts have great GPS to assist you with target yardage and carries. Great range and short game area. Attentive staff from parking lot to course. I’ll be back to tame the beast.

Great course, been there plenty of times. Starter tracked our foursome down around the 9th hole. He said we were behind pace, but carts weren’t allowed in fairway because of weather. That being said, the carts have a screen in them and we were 8 minutes behind pace. We felt rushed and that made the day just an overall poor experience. To add more to the story, they put a group of two behind us and a single behind them. Next time if pace of play is a big deal, pair those players together. Poor starter knowledge and management.

Public courses rarely play like private tracks but White Clay exceeded my expectations. Greens were sandy from aeration (did not know before round) but beyond that, the course plays pretty tough. A fair amount of even lies, difficult to judge shots, blind/distorted shots into the green, make ball placement a premium in order to be in position to score. Tee boxes were in good condition for this time of year, post-winter. I give the crew an A+ rating. Course is UNWALKABLE!!!
