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.

Excellent experience

Very nice links course. Fairways in great shape as well as greens. Course could stress to golfers to replace to the debits on the greens. Overall greens were slightly tough to read especially if you are playing there for the first time. I would definitely recommend this course for play. I will definitely play another round here.

What a Surprise!

When I saw the pictures of the course, it reminded me of a course in So. Cal. a course in Lake Elsinore; "The LInks at Summerly". Courses somewhat made like the links courses in Scotland. Well it live up to all the hype; T Boxes, Fairways, layout and the greens were true to speed. Really enjoyed the course, will return soon.

Makefield with the Ladies

Was paired up with 3 lovely women that helped me navigate my first time around this beautiful tract. Tees fairways and greens were in very good shape. Bunkers had sand in them and were raked. The course had water coolers throughout. Pace of play was good for a Saturday afternoon. I will definitely be back and I would love to play with the girls again.

High marks for Makefield Highlands

Nice, tough track. Mainly links-style holes with a few parkland.
Course conditioning was good but short of excellent.

Beautiful

First time playing here, the course was in perfect condition. Challenging holes, front nine really felt like I was playing in The Open. No trees but plenty of pot bunkers. The back is harder with plenty of trees and water. One of the nicest courses in Bucks County!!

Great challenge

The course was in great shape
The greens were perfect. Nicest greens I've seen this year.
Fairways were fast and green.
Great course for the experienced golfer.
Will be a little difficult for a beginner.

Pleasantly surprised

I had heard that this course was overpriced and not that good. I decided to judge it for myself and was pleasantly surprised. Course layout is pretty nice, some drivable par 4s and some really long par 4s. It was really hot and it seems they ran out of water in almost all water coolers throughout the course in the late afternoon. Cart girl was making rounds which helped. We were stuck behind two slow groups that led to a 5 hour round. Greens were fast and tricky. Fairways were in really good shape, some bunkers were not raked but that’s on the players. I’d definitely come back.
