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.

Benvenuto 57th in LPGA Q-School

Written by Bob Oliver

After a successful season on the Symetra Tour, the top developmental circuit for the LPGA Tour, Langhorne's Brittany Bevenuto advanced to the final stage of 2016 LPGA qualifying in Daytona Beach, Fla. 

It was a good news, bad news event.

Benvenuto scored a five-round total of 365, finishing 57th in the tournament (72-72-77-70-74). The bad news is despite that strong performance it did not qualify for the 2016 LPGA Tour as only 44 players earned status. She did re-earn Symetra Tour status for 2016.

Earlier in the fall Benvenuto, who attended Neshaminy Langhorne High School and the University of Arizona, placed 43rd in the Symetra Tour Championship Tournament on a 72-75-69-73--289 effort.

CHIP SHOTS: Erik Greene scored the second ace on the 15th hole at Northampton Valley Country Club in six years. This time he used an 8 iron to stroke his perfect shot on the 145-yard test...At Bensalem, Richard Charlino aced the 14th hole.

Shore Gate a class act

Written by Bob Oliver

The Jersey Shore has a wealth of outstanding golf challenges. Wonderful venues that can satisfy each and every level of golfer.

With that in mind, have to give a major shout out to one of if not the finest open to the public layouts, Ocean View's Shore Gate Golf Club.

We at golfbuckscounty.com previewed the course elsewhere on the site years ago, calling it a gem. "A Must play".  Years have passed, and this gem is polished and has gotten even better with age. 

A recent visit - Annual Day after Thanksgiving Shootout - saw a couple writers visit this outstanding venue.

Not a single disappointment, as Shore Gate was in perfect shape, the fairways manicured to perfection and the greens rolling like glass. Superb.

The golf boom since fizzled has meant some area courses have weaved their way through bankruptcy and ownership changes. Blue Heron Pines, The Vineyards at Renault and Mays Landing come to mind. But Shore Gate is rock solid and commands a player's attention as a challenging layout with all the fixins.

From the first tee box to the 18th green, Shore Gate is one heck of a golf destination.

Simply stated, if you haven't sampled it, you must, and if it's been a while, get back there.
