Solid local muni

Played as a 4 some in 3.5 hrs for a 11:40 tee time on a Thursday. Course is in as good as shape as ever! Played last year and mentioned the bunkers needed some love. Well, contrary to recent reviews, the bunkers were good. Most needed some sand, but all of them have been attended to recently. More then I can say about a lot of courses coming out of quarantine.
White tees are about 6400 but doesn’t feel that long. It was nice to see a difference from fairways to rough. Tees and greens were in great shape and rolled fast. For some reason they put the hole on 18 in the 6 foot area of the green that was beat up. Still a good day of golf for a good price.

Good shape in general

Course was in good shape in general, although the sand traps need some work and perhaps some kind of drainage system. Greens and fairway were in nice shape and the pace of play was good.

Optimum conditions

Have played this course a number of times. It is in the best condition I have ever played. Fairways, greens and tee boxes are wonderful. Even the 1st cut was reasonable. Can be high At times and losing a ball just off the fairway is not unusual. Not today. Walked the course in just under 4 hours. Did not have to wait on any hole. Let a 3 some play through once. Lovely.

Not a ball eater...

This course favors big hitters as you will appreciate its wide open fairways that allow you to grip it and rip it off the tee. It also is very well maintained so if you do have a miss you won’t be spending time searching for your ball. The greens are in tremendous shape with the exception of 18 which is a bit rough. Clubhouse staff /starters are very friendly.

A big hitters dream course.

I’m not a big hitter but I’m prone to get a little erratic off the tee by that is ok at Delcastle. The wide open and scenic course is great fun. Bring the big dog and let him eat as you have several great chances at birdies with big drives. The course has never been in better shape that I can remember and all the greens except 18 are in fantastic shape as well. Hardly any water except to the left fairway on 10 And only the most mis hit of slices can get you in trouble in a downhill par 3 on hole 9. Starters and staff are courteous and friendly. The driving range across the street and the chipping green behind the clubhouse are tops too. Love playing here when I need to give my game a confidence boost.

Course condition and pace of play is good. But all putting green need some work to do. Bumpy, slow and air blow for seeds and dirt

Delcastle

Staff was friendly and inviting. Course layout was good and forgiving. Only issue that day was the pace of play. Was just me and a friend and we waited a lot after the 6th hole. Otherwise I’d come again and play. Didn’t loose a single ball.

My go-to course this year

Played here a bunch of times this year and it’s withstood the harsh summer and high volumes this season. Still in great shape, and much better than what I originally played on a few years ago. And for a $30 hot deal, can’t beat it. Course isn’t that difficult and greens don’t roll really true, ball line stays pretty straight regardless of the break looks like. But I’ll take the conditions and value any day.

Much improved

I probably played this course back in June and we had a lot of rain for spring so the course was ok. Played October thought the course was much improved. Green fairways and soft greens. Still need to work on the bunkers. Need sand not baseball diamond fill.

Delcastle GC is a gem

Lived in DE 5 years but played Delcastle the last 3 Sundays and loved every round. Course is in great condition and the value is enhanced by the test for a bogey golfer like me. Plan to play a few more Sundays at Delcastle this year yet.
