Resort jewel

Staff just can't do enough for you......excellent. The course seems to become more challenging as it progresses. Conditions are typical of a good club, which it is. It won't beat you up, perfect while relaxing at the beach.
Brian Trout is as good as they get.

Hidden Gem

I have been a member of Cripple Creek since it opened in 1984 and I have not looked back. First let’s talk about the course, the views of the front nine are as spectacular as the condition of the greens. There are five holes on the course that are as unique as and memorable as any golf holes I have ever played. It requires the golfer to use all the clubs in the bag and depending on the wind direction, it can create a completely different golf course.

I love the management, Brian Trout and his team of professionals and staff have provided me and my family a terrific experience. The most impressive thing about the club is that it continues to find ways to improve the course, facilities and the overall experience for the members. I highly recommend you stop by and experience this for yourself.

This course never dissapoints.

Cripple Creek is Bethany beach's only private club. The grounds staff keeps this course in top condition year round. The pro shop staff is very friendly and know the answers to all my questions. Lunch afterwards in the Pub has always been amazing.

Great golf at the beach

Course was built in mid 80s and is now one of the best courses at the beach. Pool, restaurant and golf staff are great. Course is challenging but fair.

Does not feel like a private course

The conditions are much more like a public course than a private one, and not a real good one at that. The layout is pretty boring. Pace of play was decent. I expected so much more based on the location along the bay. To be fair, there were some interesting holes, actually quite a few, but the conditions were just not good enough.
