Pocono Hills Golf Course
Surrounded by the Pocono Mountains, the Pocono Hills Golf Course (formerly Fernwood Resort & Country Club) was carefully carved from wooded hillsides. Condos and other residences were later built near the golf course and although they are situated quite close, the round is still enjoyable. The layout is tight with narrow fairways that are lined with trees. The front nine is easier than the back where more dramatic elevation changes come into play. Many of the greens have elevations of over 50 feet, making approach shots a formidable test. There are also a number of tricky doglegs that are practically 90 degree turns. The layout rewards straight, accurate drives and the greens putt fast and true. There are a number of challenging holes, especially the 10th and 14th, but overall Pocono Hills Golf Course is approachable enough for all skill levels.

Beautiful course, fun play
On vacation staying at the Exploria property. We were very pleased with the course. Very well maintained course. Staff were very friendly. Saw us pull in and met us at our vehicle with carts before we could even get out. Pro shop has very little. No coolers, no beer. Course does have ice cold water coolers and cups at tees. Course isn't as narrow as other reviewers implied. We're from flat Ohio so we enjoyed the diverse elevation of this course. There were only a few mushy areas along the fairways and ruffs - impressive for the excessively wet spring. Pace of play was perfect. Course was not busy, but steady. We enjoyed it so much, we booked another tee time before we leave. Definitely great golf at an extremely affordable price, hot deal or not. Plenty of available tee times.
Sunday afternoon golf
The course had some wet spots (understandably) and some bunkers need maintenance and care. Overall, course was in good shape. I would definitely play again!
Nice course with narrow fairway
You need to hit it straight. Most of the fairways are narrow. No margin for error
Great day to play. Still wet on 7,8.9,and 11. But the rest of the holes are in good shape.
Great challenging. course
Have played this course twice. The fairways and greens were in excellent conditions.
They keep the place very nice.
Need to Have a snack and beverage cart.
A must play.

The weather has been so tough since last season. Not the fault of the owners or the workers. The staff has always been excellent to me no matter when I have played there. The course was in as good of condition as it could be. No fault of the owners and staff. I drive up there from a Jersey and it has always been worth the trip. Thank you owners and staff for another great day. Much appreciated and I can’t wait to come back!! You guys rock! Again I say it is always worth the trip up there.
Always play well here very fun course great for the dollar
Greens in great shape as well as traps.
A challenging course.
Sporty with demanding tee shots. Choosing less than driver may be the smart choice on several holes with the trade off of a longer approach to a tilted green. Great risk/ reward course
Beautiful fairways and greens. Considering it rained all day yesterday only ran into a couple soggy spots
3rd time playing this course, the fairways were just cut, and the greens were very nice and very challenging. The pace of play was excellent due to the very light volume of other players. A couple of fairways showed some damage from the rainy weather, but most were in fine shape.
Bargin price for great golf expreience
Got a great deal for a weekend price. Staff was engaged and actually did some pace of play management. They directed a foursome playing very deliberately to allow several twosomes to play through. Quite unexpected, but welcomed. Course was wet and cart path only which they enforced as well! Having played this course previously makes it more of a challenge to improve shots on each hole. I first saw this course as unkind, but later found it to be fair.
Challenging course with great scenery
First time playing this course - the reviewers weren’t joking, short but a real challenge: narrow fairways, elevation with a few blind shots and tight doglegs. This course forces you to think. I left the driver in the bag on all but 3 holes. The course is also very well laid out with nice scenery - in short it was a pleasure to play. Can highly recommend it. Will be back.
The cart paths are a little in need of repairs - otherwise would have been 5 stars all round.
