From the Steel City to the City of Brotherly Love, Golf Advisor raters played a lot of golf in Pennsylvania in 2014.
The top 15 courses in the state all earned scores of 4.25/5 or higher, and the top three made Golf Advisor's inaugural Top 50 U.S. courses in 2014, Jack Frost (no. 17), Quicksiliver (no. 35) and Champion Lakes (no. 37).
Jack Frost, located in the Poconos, earned high marks all year long, particularly in course conditions and staff friendliness, showing that management is firing on all cylinders at this scenic course set across 200 wooded, mountainous acres.
"Played for the first time two days earlier but enjoyed enough to go back again during our week in the Poconos," wrote Cam, a female golfer from the Boston area. "Wonderful mountain course that challenges but in a fair way."
