This used to be a good municipal course but recently the city has been bleeding the course of funds and it is the worst of all local public courses. The bunkers need total rebuilding and the greens are not far behind. The tees are sloped from years of neglect.Maintenance involves cutting the grass, that's it. It's a shame because the layout is good and they have the revenue to sustain a very good municipal course.

In order to score low here you must long off the tee!

For a public course this is an excellent value. Five sets of tee boxes for all playing levels. Excellent proffesional staff. Just oppened Starters Golf Grille which is simply exelleent. Nothing like it in the Lehigh Valley... A great golfing experience.
