Middletown Country Club’s golf course has been a fixture in Bucks County now for 106 years. The course was laid out by Scottish golf architect Alexander Findlay, with 9 holes completed in 1913 and the second nine opened in 1916. Throughout our history, the course has undergone renovations by noted golf course architects George Fazio, Stephen Kay, and Tyler Rae. Today’s golfers can stroll the same fairways and hit shots into the same greens that such greats as Hogan, Player, Fazio, and Miller have graced. 12 of the original 18 holes play today as they did in 1913.
Middletown Country Club’s golf course is living proof that a golf course does not have to be 7,500 yards in order to be challenging. The course presents today’s golfer with a variety of uphill, downhill, and sidehill lies as the course features rolling terrain within the Neshaminy Valley. The greens at Middletown are described as being small in nature with a good deal of undulation. The course plays to a yardage of 6,076 yards from the back tees, a more modest 5,746 yards from the middle tees, and 5,037 yards from the forward markers. Par is 70 from the middle and back tees and 73 from the forward tees.
Our golf course is proudly maintained by GCSAA Class A Superintendent Jim Morgan and his team. A Levittown native and graduate of Neshaminy Maple Point High School and Rutgers University, Jim has over 30 years experience in turf grass management. Jim has served as the golf course superintendent at Walnut Lane Golf Club, JC Melrose Country Club, John F. Byrne Golf Club, and Cobb’s Creek Golf Club. Morgan actually began his career in the industry at Middletown Country Club in the late 1980’s. Jim returned to Middletown in 2017 after the unfortunate passing of his good friend and Agro Golf Corporation founder Rick Begley. Besides his contributions at Middletown, Morgan has been extremely active in the community, as he has directed the Neshaminy Basketball Association for youth basketball for over two decades. He also currently serves as the President of the Bristol Township School Board.
Middletown Country Club also is a Associate Member Club of the Golf Association of Philadelphia and the USGA. 75 new Yamaha gas-driven golf carts with windshields and USB ports were acquired by the club in April of 2020. An automatic Toro double-row irrigation system helps keep quality turf conditions during the hot summer months. While the club currently does not have a practice range, Middletown boasts a rather large practice putting green where chipping and pitching is permitted along with two warm up nets to loosen up prior to your first tee shot. Middletown’s golf shop offers the latest golf equipment and apparel to suit every golfer’s needs. PGA Head Professional Dan Hoban conducts lessons in various venues, from the private one on one type, junior golf programs in a group setting, or the group adult clinics as part of the PGA’s Get Golf Ready program.
