White Clay Creek Country Club at Delaware Park is a challenging but playable layout that is well known amongst locals. At just over 7,000 yards, the golf course offers a fair amount of challenges. Water hazards come into play on most holes, demanding several difficult forced carries. There are also some spots on the course that can be quite narrow. The terrain is mostly flat but the layout provides enough diversity to appeal to both low and high handicappers. White Clay Creek has a strong reputation not only for the golf course but also for its various amenities, which give it the feel of a private club. Staff assists you with getting your clubs to and from your car and use of the driving range and chipping green are included in the reasonable fee.

Great course. Awesome touch screen in cart. No need for my android to keep score. Price was right. Lots of rain this fall into this oncoming winter so lots of puddling of run off water. Thank god cart path is in great shape. Best I have seen in a while. Was windy and chilly on our day but that doesn't stop us. Dress properly. Especially if you love this sport. Big course, be prepared to enjoy the nice scenic views. We will be back.

A fantastic golf experience

This course makes you feel you are playing a hundred year old championship course in PA.
From the professional driving range to perfectly true greens and beautiful fairways this is a great golf experience.
But be forewarned , you need to drive the ball long and stay in the fairways because the ruff is not forgiving and most likely you will lose your ball. Also there is the meandering monster white clay creek , I will leave that for you to discover. LOL

Tough course

The course layout was tough. Definitely makes you chose and play shots carefully. GPS on the cart was great to show the layout and yardage. Staff was friendly and helpful. Rained the night before which made cart path only and a long day (5 hrs). Group in front made for even slower play. Very easy to lose balls with hazards and the time of year. Would play again during summer when not cart path only and no leaves on the ground. Definitely recommended

This course has a challenging layout

I enjoy playing White Clay Creek golf course bc it's always in great condition and it has a challenging layout. It's very much a risk/reward tee shot setup.

Extremely difficult course for those over 20 handicap

Played from the white tees (5800 yds). Many long carries from the tees. Several holes with multiple creek crossings or other major hazards. Shot accuracy required on many holes with little forgiveness. Many cart path only holes due to course conditions.

Solid course

It was my second time playing. Only downside was my cart happened to not have a reverse switch (it was broken) and rattled the whole round. Had a lot of fun and the course was in amazing shape for November!
