Rating 70.6

Northampton Valley Country Club, proudly owned by Northampton Township, the golf course first opened in 1963. It is well known among locals as one of the Greater Philadelphia area's best courses. The layout has a classic design with tree-lined fairways and gently sloped greens. Several strategically placed bunkers lurk along the greens and there are a few water hazards that come into play as well. The par-70 golf course is a manageable 6,400 yards from the back tees. It's a traditional design that is player friendly enough for all skill levels but there are risk-reward opportunities that will appeal to low handicappers. In addition to the golf course, Northampton Valley has a driving range with new range balls which is open to the public and a 10,000 sq. ft. practice green with a pristine sand trap for patrons to work on their short game.

Very playable course

One gripe. Being overrun by Canadian geese may be inevitable but greens should be whipped to remove geese scat.

We started off putting in snow on 1st 5 holes, then it melted off, overall great day , greens were pretty fast , and rolled fairly true under winter conditions , course was in very good shape for this time of year, staff is extremely friendly! I’ll play here throughout the winter barring snow!!

Course conditions are pretty good..but the pace of play was terrible we were waiting almost 10 minutes at each tee to just tee off and when we got to the 10th tee there was 3 groups waiting to tee off so we had to go back to the front nine and we were backed up there also.

Fairways ans greens in the best shape I have seen.

After the very warm first week of November, the grass was great on FWs and Greens. Greens are the fastest around and takes more than a round to get calibrated relative to the other open to the public courses around.
Some bunkers are inexcusable.

No walking rate available on GolfNow! !, so you need to call for that. So paying full price $67 to walk, it is the most expensive around as well.

Nice course but pricey

This was my first time playing this year.
The course remains the same. I thought I would try again even with the jacked up price.
It’s still a fun course but not for $70.00 when a lot of the traps are MUD

Came back to Northampton after 5 years of skipping it

I have been avoiding coming back here after playing in a league here and it took 3 hours to play nine holes.
Saw a good deal and decided to give it a try again.

Except for a couple tee boxes that needed seeding and a bad bunker or two, the course was in very good shape. Greens were good and the pace of play was just over 4 hours.

The course was in pretty good shape for the fall. A couple of tee boxes and some areas off fairways were a little beat up. The greens were mostly in good shape and there are clearly some fairways that they put a lot of work into. A couple of fairways were in really nice shape. I played this course in July and the course may be in better shape now than it was in July. The pace of play was a little slow with a couple of groups in front of us playing pretty slow. Altogether it was an enjoyable round on a beautiful fall day.

Excellent value

A short course that offers challenges to all levels of golfers. Tee boxes, fairways & green in excellent condition, only negative were the sand traps lacking sand.

Would definitely return. Great Value.
