3 of us played at Bucks County Country Club today. It was pretty hot at about 90 degrees and the course wasn’t too crowded. They told us just to show up without a tee time to give you an idea of how crowded it was. At $60 dollars with a cart, I think it’s a bit overpriced. This was their normal rate and not twilight. A 45 dollar price tag would seem more appropriate. They have range balls to hit for free which is a nice amenity. The starter was kind and let us tee off on two instead of getting stuck behind a group of 8 which allowed us to finish in about 3 and half hours. We actually ended up playing 1 to finish off our 18 and than played the other 8 to finish 26 holes for the day. They didn’t say anything but I feel I earned that for 60 bucks.
I finished the day with an 87 which was pretty good. I was 41 on the front and only had one double. On the back I carded 2 triples and a double. I only lost 1 golf ball on the day and the course is pretty forgiving. Some fairways are narrow but usually an errant drive just hits some trees. I probably used driver on 12 holes and a 2 iron on the other two. We played the blue tees but they really weren’t much different than the whites. On my good drives I was going driver 8 or 9 iron into the greens so it really isn’t that long of a course. I thought the course was in pretty good shape for the lack of rain and played fairly. I would give this course about a 6.5 out of 10. If it was priced right I’d probably give it closer to an 8.
