Very rude staff

I took my wife golfing here for her first time. I have been golfing for 25 years. She was driving the cart and when on the greens on a par 3. I immediately told her to get off as it was an honest mistake. A staff member came Immediately came over and told us to leave the course immediately. I told him it was my wives first time. An honest mistake and apologized. And his response was “learn some golf etiquette then come back”. He was completely unprofessional and incredibly abrasive in his reaction. I can understand his concern but it was an honest mistake and because of his reaction and attitude we never go back to this course again. It’s actually the worst course in Delaware but it was a cheap place to teach my wife. You get what you pay for. We joined DuPont now instead and will never need to go back.

First time this year

In nice shape for time of year and the fact they get a lot of play on the weekends.
Fairways and greens were firm and fast. Got a lot of bounce and roll today. Kudos for every bunker I saw was tended to. Rough a little long in spots, but very open and very playable. +6300 yards from white tees, +5300 yards from next tee up. Recommend and will return again this season.

Great course

Great course great staff. Pace of play was average on the front 9 however the ranger did ask us if it the group in front were too slow. We said it was fine. The back 9, things got slower towards the last holes. It didn’t ruin the day at all though.

Walking only

I drove 30 minutes to be told that it was walking only. This was at 11am. They had all morning to email or phone me. They didn't. Very inconsiderate.

Roughest I’ve seen this course in a while

Delcastle has always been a course I enjoy. Not sure if it’s just early in the season or what, but greens weren’t grown in yet, still sand from off season rolling and we’re rock hard, fairways grass was longer than what you would typically expect. Conditions very firm so balls rolled out well. And they are putting new sand in the traps. So it does seem like they’re slowly working on it, but hoping it gets better for the rest of the season.

Very playable course

This is a course you can walk if desired and it does not require super accuracy. Has interesting holes and can play fast..
