Water Gap Country Club

Delaware Water Gap, Pennsylvania | 18 holes | Par: 72 | 6124 yards

It's not everyday that you can play on a scenic mountain course, built in the 1920's, that hosted a major tournament played by many legendary golfers. That's what you get at Water Gap Country Club, the historic course in the Delaware Water Gap and the site of the Eastern Open in 1926-1928.The links-style course, designed by Robert White, the first president of the PGA, is extremely hilly. It's not very long, but the hills produce many blind shots, with water on five holes and bunkers throughout that make it a real shot-makers course. There landing clear landing areas amid the hills, so you'll have the opportunity for some big drives with clean approach shots to the undulating greens. The rolling greens are fast, but true, so you can sink a few putts if you hit them straight.The par 72 course plays 6,237 yards from the tips, with only two par fives and seven short par fours, less than 350 yards. There are three shorter tee areas, so the course is accessible to all levels of play.
