Golf Bucks County

Middletown Country Club

Middletown is a compact 80 acres of challenging golf, with rolling hills and large specimen trees that have watched many golfers travel its fairways over time. It has retained its old time feel with tees and greens in close proximity, allowing golfers to walk the course if they choose.

Love it or hate it, Stoneleigh's a challenge

Written by Bob Oliver on .

There is no middle ground when discussing the Stoneleigh Golf Club. Over the last 14 years golfers have learned to hate, or love, the course located just outside Round Hill, Virginia, near the northern end of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The Lisa Maki designed Stoneleigh has dazzled and bedazzled players of all abilities. 

 

Its undulating fairways can lead to treacherous lies, well-placed hazards seem to grab errant golf balls, its ample greens are challenging even when they aren’t 11 on the stimpmeter. Oh, and there are the stone walls that come into play.

 

“That’s Stoneleigh, a lot of challenge for any level of player,” said former Director of Golf Bob Benning, a man who guided Stoneleigh in its early years before retiring. Benning still gives lessons at the Bob Benning School of Golf, so he’s an expert on the course one loves to love…or hate.” 

Vegas has more than slot machines

Las Vegas has long been known as an entertainment capital, one that offers everything from gaming to glitter and from glamour to glitzy.



In recent years golf has become a major attraction in the desert, a respite from the gaming tables and big name entertainment.



"Golf in Las Vegas is special," admits long-time PGA Tour pro and now Champions Tour member Jim Colbert. "You might think all the courses are alike, but nothing could be further from the truth. There is a little bit for everyone in Las Vegas."
