Nestled in historic Bucks County, Makefield Highlands Golf Club resides on the former Pleasant Valley Estate Farm with history traced to the early eighteenth century.

In 2004, 168 acres of the original Penn Grant made to Thomas Bond (c. 1718) for land extending beyond the current location North and East to the Delaware River, became what is now Makefield Highlands Golf Club. The stone Manor House is a registered historical landmark and sets the stage for a perfect day spent golfing and dining.
