Detailed description of Saucon Valley Country Club, Weyhill Course

Saucon Valley Country Club, is a Private, 60 hole golf course facility in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Saucon Valley Country Club has three 18-hole courses plus a 6-hole venue. The 18-hole courses are: The Old Course, The Grace Course, and The Weyhill Course. The 6-hole course is aptly named The Short Course.

Saucon Valley Country Club, The Weyhill Course opened for play in 1968. The course was designed by William and David Gordon.

The property that is the golf course was originally a dairy farm "Saucona Farms", later renamed "Weyhill Farms" after the owners ancestral farming village in the County of Hampshire, England.

Construction of the course began in 1966 and the first round of golf was played on the Weyhill Course on August 28, 1968.

In 1970 the course was renamed, "Bent Creek Golf Course", after the Bent family and Saucon Creek, which winds throughout the property. Two years later, the name reverted back to "Weyhill".

Two of the most spectacular are the holes that bridge a quarry located in the middle of the course. The fourteenth hole is a par three measuring 176 yards in length. The tee shot must carry the quarry to a green that slopes dramatically from right to left and back to front. The fifteenth is reminiscent of the second hole at Pine Valley, with its monstrous uphill approach shot to an elevated green well guarded by a series of bunkers set into the hillside.

Weyhill measures 6,859 yards from the back tee markers but could easily stretch to over 7,000 yards should a requirement arise.
