Nice course

Very slow play. Unnecessary. A ranger could have moved the group about 4 ahead of us along. Good daily course if they kept the golfers moving a bit quicker. Nice staff, very friendly. Greens were really slow, but with all the rain, that was to be expected

GREAT ROUND, low score of the year

great experience from check in through post round lunch. Played in less than 4 hours, course in great shape except for a couple of tee boxes and small area in front of 18th green. First time playing Delcastle since the late 90s and it was worth the trip. Of the three Wilmington courses, Oliver and Rock Manor are the others, I enjoy the layout of Delcastle the best. The course is moderate to easy for a mid to high handicap golfer. There is room to spray the ball around without major penalty. That makes the round much less frustrating for a 23 handicap like me. Delcastle will be back in my regular rotation of courses and I look forward getting back there ASAP

Never looked better

You notice a big change when you pull into the parking lot. Almost all ofthe trees blocking the view of the first fairway are gone! You pull in and see the course. That’s very noticeable to anyone who has played here over the years. I’ve played here off and on for 25-30 years and Can’t remember when Delcastle has looked so good. If you haven’t played Delcastle ina few years, come back and check it out. I believe you will like the changes.

Alternate choice

Based on some scheduling and weather problems, we chose this course to play. Pretty crowded for a Friday afternoon, so the pace was not less than 4 hours. We were surprised by the elevations on a few of the holes. A few good holes, our paired up duos were friendly, and it was a good course that met our needs

Value

This course has tremendous value for the price I paid. The quality and layout are for average golfers looking for a challenge. The greens are always in good shape and the fairways almost never in bad condition. Looking forward to getting out to Delcastle again soon!

Wet weather

there;s good news & bad news

Solid golf course, I'd say typical 60' or 70's designed no issues with tees, fairways or greens which were better then I expected. I've played here a handful of times thru the years and as luck would have it I had to walk every time, my bad. If the ground is soggy they don't have a cart path only policy, they have a no cart allowed on the course policy as some of the paths don't extend the length of the hole . You are either hoofing it to the 1st tee or back to your car. Onward to the tee it was a pretty nice day for a walk but a tad humid.Since my best days are behind me I was looking for a bench or even a dry tree stump to sit for a minute or 10, I ended up at the 16th sitting under a tree on the wet ground hoping to get my 4th wind. Finally hit 2 decent shots on the 18th seen the hill leading up to the green pick my ball up walked to the 13th and played that in to the parking lot..I'll be back but not until we have 2 straight of weeks sunshine.

Slow play with no ranger. At one point we pulled up to the next hole and there were three groups on same hole, with us making it four! On the back nine we gave up and left. Such a shame because the course is beautiful, although the greens were in awful shape. We don't plan on returning : (
