Water Gap Country Club has a dramatically hilly terrain that provides a unique and challenging round of golf. Since opening in the 1920s, the course has played host to a number of major tournaments. The links-style layout features lightning fast, undulating greens and seemingly receptive fairways that are fiercely guarded by mature trees. The elevation changes throughout the golf course guarantee that a flat lie will be hard to find and golfers will have to face several tricky blind shots. Water hazards come into play on five holes and there are also strategically placed bunkers to contend with. Water Gap is formidable test of your shot-making skills to say the least, but there are some birdie opportunities available. The signature hole is the par-3 fourth, which plays from an elevated tee to an elevated green.

    This course is exactly what golfers refer to as 'dog track'. Compared to other local options, I was appalled with how much they charged, even though it wasn't that much compared to my local area. The first few holes look pretty good from the club house, but its downhill once you get out there. You get to the 3rd hole and all of a sudden there are 7 holes jammed into a few acre area, which was not expected considering the local area. There is a 200+ yard par 4 that the locals typically leave there carts next to the 100 yard par 3 and just walk over to. So not only are you staring at a golf cart 10 feet off a green on a short par 3, then you get the disappointment of getting to the next hole which is basically driveable with a 3-wood. Tee boxes were basically dirt with a bit of grass. I have done more yard work at my own house than they do on their course. Blind shots ween't the typical blind shot, they were there because they just stuck holes wherever they could. Maybe in the top form of the 'resort' back in 1950 this course would have been ok, but save your money and drive to Mt Airy, Buck Hill Falls, etc. This course is solely for the local members who feel the need to scream across 3 fairways at their buddies and continue the conversation for the duration of the round.

    The hamburger after the round was good.
