Detailed description of New Castle Country Club

New Castle Country Club is a Private 18 hole golf course located in New Castle, Pennsylvania.

A. W. Tillinghast, designed the New Castle Field Club in 1923. Mr. Tillinghast is revered for such famous designs as Baltusrol, Winged Foot, and the San Francisco Club; hosts to many of golf's premiere events. Renamed in the 1940s, New Castle Country Club offers a challenge to golfers of all levels. The last decade has afforded the Club the honor of the best greens one year and the best fairways another year in Western Pennsylvania.

In July of 2007, New Castle Country Club was honored to be placed at #50 on John Garrity's Top 50 Courses in the World. NCCC shared this honor with such remarkable courses as Pebble Beach and Augusta National. The 6,600-yard challenge has stood the test of time and remains one of Western Pennsylvania's "hidden gems."

Par for the course is 72. From the back tees the course plays to 6,657 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 5,690 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 5, a par-5 that plays to 592 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 2, a par-3 that plays to 159 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 5, the 592 yard par-5 challenge is the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole at New Castle Country Club is # 2, the short 159 yard par-3.

Great value- free, I was a guest, a thank you to mu host!

I found some of the tees rather difficult to get to at my age. The greens were very fast, undulating and sloped. Bunkers had bees flying all around, it looked like they were burrowing into the sand. I took a mulligan for my sand shots:). No, GPS, ball washers or divot fill sand on the carts.

The fairways were very nice. All the holes provided some challenge with a par five being the most fun with the 3rd shot to the green located in the ravine 150' below. Blast away for the back of the green is below the other side of the ravine and it slopes back onto the green. I missed my putt and bogied.

Watch out when going into the mens food area. The floor has about a 4" up slope right inside of the door, I twisted my funky knee when entering. I don't understand why the 7th green would be placed in front of the clubhouse with the ninth green being located at the bottom of the clubhouse hill.

Very friendly staff.

Would travel: 10-20 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
