Cliff Park ... the golf course, and surrounding countryside, became part of Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area in 2003. The Buchanan Family owned the land from 1803 until 2002. In 1900, an old farmhouse was converted into an inn and the golf course (the inspiration of Annie Felt Buchanan) was opened in 1913. With alteration through the years, the course remained a favorite with golfers while spectators watched the "Front Five" sitting on the inn's porch. Fast forward to 2013 and PGA Professional Joe Stead, who cut his teeth in the golf business at Cliff Park , signed a ten year lease to manage the golf course and property. Joe has been blessed with great staff that have been managing and bringing the course to the glory it had in times of past.
