Second time playing this course this summer. Considering the hot weather, the fairways were green, the greens were great, Considering the temperature. I played in a foursome with young guys that were good players. The only knock is the pace of play. 4.5 hours with a 8:30 am tee time.

Nice layout and greens

I had a nice day at MH yesterday. The White T’’s played a little short and you had to club down on a an awkward amount of holes. I think the course will play better from the back. The holes are well designed and seem like set up for the back tees. A nice lady in the clubhouse coupled with a nice started got the round off on time. They have a range, chipping and putting green.

Fun course in a vacuum...

For a public golf course, it's in great shape. Greens could be a bit better, but again, for a public course, they are solid and true. Good ball striking will be rewarded here, poor ball-striking will struggle. The course does a nice job of making sure you on your A game in the short game department. Multi terraced greens, tremendous elevation changes.. You won't regret it.

I've been using the practice facility as my home. A good vibe, even amongst the T shirt wearing riff raff..

fantastic course - definitely worth checking out!

Loved this place! I've heard about it for a few years and I've been trying to get out here. Finally had the chance. The front nine is basically all "in-land links" and then the back is more wooded.... There are a few "quirky" holes but not so much that it ruins the course. #15 is a bit odd... however it LOOKS more odd than it actually IS... and once you've played it you wish you could go back and give it another go.

I wouldn't call this course overly difficult, but it can be challenging in sneaky ways. But if you're ON... then you could go pretty low here.

The most important thing to me is whether a course is a FUN round, and this place is 100% fun. Just about every hole could be a postcard and there are a lot of little things to learn about the place.

I HIGHLY suggest this place. It's actually really underrated as a course in eastern PA. I would easily put it right up there in the top 5 public courses in the philadelphia area.

Great Experience

Simply put, should you decide to play Makefield Highland, you will be very, very glad you did. The staff from check in to when you returned the cart were all friendly. The course is challenging yet fair. It's helpful to play with someone who knows the course (which I did. Thanks guys). Go ahead, book your tee time, you'll have a great day.

Bunkers—-

Many bunkers are under repair.
That’s the only negative.
This is a difficult course.
Hadn’t played it in a few years.
After a relatively wide open the back Winds through woods and narrows.
Very difficult

Fair Value

This was the first time I played this course. I'm not, generally a links-course fan because they're often boring. There was a decent mixture of scoring holes vs those with some difficulty. Makefield Highlands was a bit different. There was great variety among the holes. The well placed traps ensured they come into play, which added a challenge from shot to shot. Finally, the course was in very fine condition and the greens were fair.

Consistently excellent

Another Bucks County gem. MH is always a pleasure to play. The hazards are thoughtfully hidden in plain sight though this doesn’t lessen the challenge even a little bit.

A great course to walk-in or ride around. Lots of fun for big hitters but the rewards come for those who excel from 100 and in

Overpriced, overrated, rude staff

I’ve played this course at least 20 times prior to my last round. The first time I played I paid around $90 and realized it wasn’t worth $90 so I decided I’ll play it if I find deal on golf now. After I saw them on golf now I started playing here. My third round in a row in the month of July here wasn’t very pleasant. First of the pace of play is horrible. At check in I was told I had to pay additional $22 cart fee. I tried to explain that I wasn’t aware of the cart fee so the the gentleman started explaining it to me as if I was a 5 year old, he kept talking over. Finally I had a chance to tell him that my last two rounds were booked via golf now and he’s the same person checked me in once and and another person the second time and neither one of them mentioned anything about additional cart fee. He started ranting about working with golf now and then said we’ll technically Tupi owe us money then, I almost told him you can’t charge me for your incompetency of performing your job properly but I realize he wasn’t worth anymore of my time so I offered to pay the previous cart fees. I walked out of the pro shop and lost all interest playing. I paid $60 for a 3:30pm tee time without a cart. I’d never come back to this course unless it’s free. There are better courses near by that are far better then this course, heron glen and neshanic valley are two of those, they charge $60 after 3:30pm with cart and are always in great condition.
