Frog Hollow Golf Club in Middletown boasts the title of "best public golf course" in Delaware. The course has a links-style layout that is challenging but still player-friendly enough to appeal to beginners, seniors, and juniors. The layout is wide open and quite forgiving but there are still plenty of hazards with which to contend. There are more than 50 strategically placed bunkers throughout the golf course. Their thoughtful placement makes up the bulk of the layout's challenges. There are ponds that come into play on six holes as well as tall native grasses that appear along the fairways and greens. The wind is often a factor on the course too and will test your accuracy even further. Frog Hollow Golf Club's par 3s and par 5s are manageable but the par 4s will test even the best players.

Course in great shape, bunkers unplayable

I’ve been playing this course for years and even with the hot summer, the tee boxes fairways and greens are in great shape. The rough could use some water but still not bad. The course has been under a few different managements over the years and still none of them have tacked the terrible bunkers. It’s like dirt not sand and there’s giant rocks in almost everyone of them. It’s so bad that you will definitely destroy your clubs if you play out of them. The course is fun and I would recommend to anyone in the area, but stay away from the bunkers.

Back to normal

Frog Hollow is back to being near the top of my list of places to play. The course has come back strong from the problems of a couple years ago. Tee to green is 85%. The bunkers could still use some love. The toughest 6 finishing holes around. ( in my opinion.)

Nice hills to use in play

First round in my new home of De
Worth the coin
Layout is fun and if you can work the ball the sides of the hills are perfect
I’ll go back again but with a long stick
Irons only creates issues on some holes
Go play
The starter has the perfect personality for that course

slow greens made round less fun

The layout is a good one. Fairways were in good shape. Bunkers were not. Greens were bumpy and VERY SLOW.

A nice course!

I live east of the Chesapeake Bay bridge and taking the 50 minute scenic drive to Frog Hollow is always a delight. The hot deals are an especially great value right now.

This course is challenging and in great shape. A few holes are CPO but we have had a lot of rain lately…but who hasn’t in this neck of the woods?

Frog Hollow

The course was in great shape other than the one par 3 with all the geese on it and all their left overs.
Really nice course though. Nice challenging holes.

Good pace

The pace of plat was very good. Good value for playing. Sand traps need some help. Solution is to avoid them.
