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 - Not Easy

Second time playing White Clay Creek. Both times the staff was fantastic and friendly. The course is always in great shape. Greens were rolling very true and just the right speed. The layout is also awesome with no back and forth holes. The holes them selves are not easy. Some long carry's and also some target golf.
Clubhouse is beautiful and the food in the restaurants was awesome, great lunch.
Cart girl could not have been more available and just super nice.
Play here if you're in the area for sure.

Great Twilight Value

Course was in very good shape, greens were firm and were rolling great! Was impressed by the practice areas and friendliness of the staff. Lots of accurate iron play required, if you love hitting driver, the tips will give you a couple more chances to do that. Great twilight value, will be back soon! Highly recommend.

If golf is a metaphor for life…

White Clay Creek is what it’s like to live!
It’s beautiful, but can be difficult at times. It’s serene, then the challenges come!
I loved it all!

Shot Makers Paradise

This golf course is a nice track and as the conditions improve through the spring and summer will be a real treat for many golfers. I would start by advising if you aren't at least a moderately practiced golfer, this course might not be for you. The rough is truly rough and the greens are fast and unforgiving. There are lots of opportunities for shot making both off of the tee and approaching the green complexes. Local knowledge in invaluable, so if you haven't played it, plan one round just to observe the course and where shots should be placed so that you can come back and really score well in the future. Played the white tees on this visit. Tees played a solid 6500 yard round. Many of the holes are position tee shots leaving many mid and long irons into greens. Par threes all played over 160 with the exception of 17 (120 yds). Only hit driver 3 or 4 times. I really enjoyed this round and the challenges and loved the opportunities to hit some real quality shots. As a final note, I travel for work and can't carry golf shoes with me. I play in running shoes and that was a challenge as the tees and fairways are mowed rather short here and I struggled to keep my footing. It was damp on this day, so that provided a different challenge for me. All that to say, I will be back. Where is the first tee and what is the course record?!

Very tough course too many forced carries Most of the greens are up on a plateau making it incredibly hard to hold chip shots on very fast greens, Not a fun course to play but incredibly challenging

Cold day

Was cold and very windy day so had hit least two clubs more, cold wind made day seem longer, not course fault , also pretty wet car path only which suspected, took almost five hours so little long but understandable. Nice course just not on cold windy day, but if want golf deal with it. Will come back as pretty good deal

Another great round

The greens were recently aerated but they still rolled well. We played under cart path only, due to recent rain, but still managed to finish in just over 4 hours. Staff were all very friendly and accommodating. Looking forward to playing the course again.
