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.

The good news is that I don't have Cabin Fever yet.


The bad news it's on its way.

Who has 51 hole-in-one shots?

Written by Bob Oliver on .

I don't know about you, but I love a good hole-in-one story.


This is most likely because --- I'm estimating here --- I've struck more than 9,000 shots on par-3 holes in my golfing career and have never garnered a hole-in-one on a regulation course.

Posture important in golf swing

Written by Bob Oliver on .

It takes a great deal of talent to play the game of golf well, but that doesn't mean you must have a scratch handicap to enjoy what every true fan knows is a game for life.


Even first timers can have fun playing the game at a local pitch and putt, executive or regulation layout.  


Sure, as Lee Trevino once said, "It's a game where you have to hit your foul balls," but it's still a game at which each level of player can have fun. That great shot on the 18th hole will be etched into your mind and surely bring you back to the course time and time again.
