Gilbertsville Golf Club in New Hanover Township is tucked away among the rolling hills of Montgomery County. The 27-hole public course is divided into three nines, called the Red, White, and Blue. The Red and White were the club's original 18 holes when it first opened in 1967, and the Blue nine was added 30 years later. Being one of the older nines, the White Course has a more traditional layout with small, mostly flat greens and wide fairways lined with trees. It's not the most formidable round at Gilbertsville G.C. but it does have a few challenges in store. There are some tricky doglegs and while water may only come into play on two holes, one of these -- the par-5 second -- will leave a lasting impression with a carry over a lake and a meandering stream that edges the right side and then cuts in front of the green.

First Time Playing

First timer

Not sure why I waited so long to make the trip from Delaware to play. Played red/blue from the tips, about 6100 yards according to the card. Probably closer to 6k , some tees were up a bit. As a single player going off early morning, I took my time, enjoyed myself and finished in just under 3 hours, thanks to the 3some in front of me playing quickly.
Everything tee to green is in 80% The one BIG thing, in my opinion, is the bunkers. They seem to take the time to rake or drag them, but don’t take the time to pickup the many different sized stones I saw in almost every bunker. Sand would be nice.
Visually appealing. Very nice fairways to rough definition. Some tall grass areas and some water to deal with. Greens were fast and not too beat up. I would have liked a regular for knowledge.
Will definitely return a couple times this year and hope to get to play the white 9 sometime.

Great public course with nice open layout

Fun open course, always in great shape with big undulating greens. A lot of fun to play as it's easy to keep the ball in play, but undulating greens protected by bunkers keep it a fun challenge.

Worst I've played in a long time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tee boxes where trashed, bunkers where all stone, and playing behind a group that took forever to make a shot made for a long day. On top of all that I paid $48.00 per player. We are not going back, place has gone down hill since they changed to the current PGA pro.

Pace of play is way too slow

Foursome two groups ahead of us slowed play all day.
By the 15th ( hole 6 on red) four groups of golfers sat waiting in carts for them to clear the fairway so that the threesome in front of us could finally tee off. We decided to end our day of golf at that point rather than to continue the agony of waiting for them at every hole.
Course ranger needs to enforce the pace of play and have groups play through when slow players are backing up play for everyone behind them. The agonizingly slow pace of play and constant waiting to hit made for a frustrating round of golf on what is overall a nice course.

Nice layout but needs some maintenance.

This is a great course if you can play it for less than $40. However, it seems like they built a brand new nine and didn’t bother to put sand in any of their bunkers. The traps are literally rocks and dirt. It’s a shame because this would be the nicest part of their golf course.

Gilbertsville Red to Blue Courses

Overall, a nice day of playing golf. Had the best round of my life by shooting a 3 over par, 73. The macadam cart paths on the Red Course were horrendous. Tons of potholes and crumbling. The Blue Course cart paths were much better. Most importantly, the greens were in very good shape. Was never in the bunkers but they looked a little sketchy. Fairly basic track with some water coming into play. Would play there again.
