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.

Challenge to be accepted

White Clay Creek forces you to hit shots. If you’re not in control of your ball, you will be exposed. Play it for the challenge.

Staff is friendly & facility is complete. Worth the trip every time..

Great green condition

Green condition was awesome roll true and fast. Other than that personally just way too much creek into play just about every hole you have to force carry over a creek into fairway or to green. . And two holes there is train running literally right next to you. Mind horse racing around you. Like the track on couple of holes, overall condition was good. Also bring lot of balls of you don’t hit straight.

Punishes Big Hitters

The course is in great shape and it’s challenging. However, I’ve never had to keep driver in the bag so much. The creek is in play a lot and there are a lot of doglegs. Typically I can cut a few but there are so many trees here and they are very high that it was impossible. I can’t remember a course like this that I couldn’t cut any corners. I will probably not be back to this course for some 20 years. I feel like you have to be a shorter hitter to really like this place.

One of the best around!!

WCCCC is always a treat and pleasure to play. When you can catch a hot deal, it’s a no brainer.
The greens were insanely fast.

Kemper Mgmt doing it right

White Clay Creek is always a treat. A challenging layout that is not only a great layout with impeccable conditions tee to green but each hole is different and the cart trip from hole to hole is an enchanting ride through the White Clay state park and Delaware Park horse training track. Course was in good condition and greens perfect running around 10/11. Staff was friendly and they include the practice range and balls with your round.
I will be making a return trip in fall on top of everything is the course is adjacent to Delaware Park Horse track and casino.

White Clay Creek (Deer Sighting)

We played from the White Tees and had to lay up on about 60% of the holes. This course was challenging due to the wind and course layout. Great driving range and chipping greens. Highly recommend. Also, casino right next to the course.

Great Course. Slow play

Got twilight rate. Course is great and in awesome shape. Lots of irons off tees (played the whites). Front nine pace was fine. Back nine was atrocious. A member of our group quit after 12 due to it. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
