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.

LPGA ShopRite to fall dates

Written by Bob Oliver


Nothing is "the same" in the new world of COVID 19.   Yes there is a vaccine but the disease is still causing havoc. 


The good news for LPGA fans is that the 2021 ShopRite LPGA Classic presented by Acer is on the calendar, slated for September 27-October 3 at Seaview, A Dolce Resort. While not occupying "normal" dates kicking off the summer shore season the new dates will allow more time to attack the disease.


While other events were cancelled by the LPGA because of the pandemic, the ShopRite was held - without fans.  For 2021 there is a full 34 event world class schedule, with more than $76M up for grabs.  "We have a great schedule and hopefully the pandemic is overcome," said commissioner Mike Whan. "This has been a difficult year but we are optimistic about the future."


The ShopRite annually attracts some of the finest golfers in the world, who love the Seaview Bay Course, the amenities of the Atlantic City area, and --- hopefully --- boisterous fans.  Oh, and the $1,750,000 purse helps whet the appetite. 


The event's list of champion includes numerous Hall of Famers, and the competition is intense and watched by millions around the world.  Mel Reid claimed the 2020 event with a sparkling 19-under-par score.

Zero Friction unveils light golf bag

Written by Bob Oliver


There won't be a PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando next month, a real bummer but the reality of the new world order under COVID19.
That does not mean we don't uncover some great new products. One that totally struck our eyes is one from our friends
at Zero Friction, a company that has been making quality quality merchandise that delights golfers of all abilities
for years.
The latest rollout is a super lightweight easy carry stand bag.  Oh yes!
This bag is a breeze to carry weighing less than five pounds. It is sold with a slotted waffle golf towell and Zero Friction's award winning golf glove, and features a comfortable easy carry fual strap,  perfect handle and smart hip pad.  The folks at Zero Friction have though long and hard about what a carry bag should have and this product does it all.  
There are seven zipper pockets that provide a place for everything, including an apparel compartment for rain gear or a sweater.  There is a perfect  lined valuables pocket and an insulated water bottle pocket. Suffice it to say there's a place for nearly everything. 
The product features a full length bottom of the bag divider that helps keep your clubs organized, allowing them to keep their distance from another to keep from nerve wracking bunching up. 

The Zero Friction bag has all kinds of attributes, and one other thing: a price that doesn't break the pocketbook.  It retails for less than $200. But then what would you expect from a company which continually develops smart products for golfers.
