Explore the Course
As you play through the wooded, rolling mountainside terrain, you will experience the timeless design of legendary architects Donald Ross and Robert White.
Our acclaimed 27-hole golf course consists of three nine-hole courses:
1. White Course: The front nine of Donald Ross’s 18, the 36-par White Course is our longest and flattest course, weaving through our charming golf cottage community.
2. Red Course: Robert White’s masterful design, the Red Course is our most open and hilly. It’s also our shortest, but it boasts some of our most difficult par 4s.
3. Blue Course: Embracing the other courses’ choice features, Ross merged the hilliness of the Red with the length of the White to create a compact course with notably elevated greens and tees. Our iconic Swarthmore Shelter appears on the Blue Course.
With stunning views of dense woods and mountain silhouettes, Buck Hill Golf Club has provided members of Buck Hill Falls with a one-of-a-kind recreational experience for generations. A retreat from the ordinary, our highly sought after 27-hole course offers abundant opportunities to seek out a new challenge or enjoy a relaxing game.

Played Buck Hill on Monday 7/7. I started out on the Blue course which i found to be a really fun, scenic 9. The back-2-back par 5's were mountain golf at its best, very tight but very fair. The par 4 8th was another beautiful hole. Standing on the tee box i must have been able to see for a good 60-70 miles. The conditions of the blue were very good. The fairways were plush, the rough nice and thick, tee boxes full and the greens rolled true. The biggest problem i had was leaving my ball above the hole way too many times on the first few holes before i finally learned my lesson. For my second 9 i played the red course because the white was pretty crowded. The red started off pretty slow, a ho hum par 3, par 4 and another par 3 before it picked up after that. The conditions were once again very good although the rough did have some brown spots. This 9 wasn't quite as appealing as the Blue but never the less very enjoyable. The greens weren't quite as tricky and the holes weren't as tight except for 5 which was a brutal par 4, 410 yard uphill tunnel. All in all Buck Hill is a great course and i think the price is very reasonable compared to other courses in the area. I fully intend to play here again so i can get on the white.
My cousin Bob and I drove down from the Binghamton, NY area to play the course on 10/25/10. It was money well spent. This is easily one of the best courses in the N.Y./P.A. area. It's mountain golf at it's best. The blue course is riddled with narrow, sloping fairways and blind tee shots. Everywhere you look there is undulation and elevation. The greens were in great shape and are your typical Donald Ross fare (small-medium sized). The bunkers were in good, playable condition with medium grain sand. The rough was fair but punitive. The abundance of leaves made it difficult to find balls that caromed off the fairway, but then, we should have hit it straighter. The carts were gas powered and in good shape. The staff was very friendly (especially the folks in the restaurant). Alcohol and food prices are quite reasonable and we found lunch to be REALLY tasty. The price here can be a bit steep, but it's well worth the occasional splurge. We'll be back.....
Played this course May 21, 2013. The condition of the tee boxes, fairways and greens was outstanding. The course is extremely playable with no forced carries, very little water and bunkers that were well situated but not unduly penal. The staff was very friendly and helpful...didn't see any rangers or cart attendants, but we didn't see more than half a dozen other golfers. The dining area is quaint, old school comfortable. This is how a 'country club' in the mountains of Pennsylvania should look and feel. And, the price was more than reasonable. Not easy to find, but if you are anywhere near Buck Hill Falls, Pa and looking for a great experience, make the effort and go to this fine venue.
