Where2Golf says: 

The Old Course at Saucon Valley Country Club is one of the top-rated and finest championship layouts in Pennsylvania. The excellent tree-lined and open parkland course contains a wealth of wonderfully crafted, memorable and challenging holes. Definitely a course that will challenge your all-round game. However, this is a private course generally playable only by members and their guests.
