At Back Creek Golf Club, your entertainment dollar goes further – 
from the first tee to the best entrée on our menu.

No one is there to help you earn your money. But at Back Creek Golf Club, we think we can help you make the hard-earned bucks you spend on entertainment and recreation go a little further.

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.

“This course has been brought back to life by the new owners. Beautiful course, nice clubhouse,
kinda windy but I am sure that will be a blessing once summerhits!”

If excellent golf weren’t enough, our bill of fare starring award-winning crab cakes and other local favorites served in our half-moon Grille at Back Creek pleases hungry golfers and local diners alike.

“Good menu, especially for fish. I had a grilled yellowtail salad that was excellent. There were many good choices,
from pub fare to more elegant. If you can eat outside on the patio, you'll enjoy it!”
- G.D., Wilmington

“Food was great, service was better. Had a great time with my family. Can't wait to go back.”
- Steve, Middletown  

"First time - Will be back."
- B. Teague 2014  

“Don’t change a thing.”
- D. Shoop 2014 

“You guys are world famous.”
- The Cloughs’ 2014

Membership certainly does have its advantages at Back Creek. We offer several membership options to satisfy everyone from the weekend warrior to the serious golfer, each assuring that you get the most from your disposable entertainment buck.

Service is our main business. We can host a wedding. Give a golf lesson. Feed an army of hungry outing attendees. Impress your business foursome. We do it all with a lot of panache and without emptying your wallet!
