Located at the base of the bridge on 896 in Middletown, Delaware, Back Creek is an 18-hole golf facility providing the area’s best “links-style” rounds with unmatched attention to detail -- at some of the best rates available.
Named one of Golfweek's “2012 Best in State” and one of Golf Magazine's “2012 Best Public Course” -- our traditional layout with generous fairways and contoured greens gives enthusiastic golfers reason to come back again and again.
The course plays 7,113 yards from the black tees for a par of 71. The course rating is 74.4 and it has a slope rating of 134. Designed by Allen Liddicoat/David Horne, the Back Creek golf course opened in 1997, with many improvements the past four seasons under new ownership.
