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.

I Will Return
I give the conditions a 4 only because I lost 4 or 5 balls in fallen leaves. As I was finishing I did see some out on the course with blowers but they were only blowing the leaves off of the fairways and maybe 3 yards of rough. The leaves need to be moved all of the way into the out of bounds areas. Also the traps were not kept up to par. Other than that the course was in great shape and except for rude golfers not fixing their ball marks on the greens they were fast and true.
Course was in great condition and some of the holes were very challenging making for an interesting round. Played in under 4 hours on a beautiful sunny day. For the price this is a real value and I will definitely be back.
Fun course to play
Have played here 3 times now - easy to get a tee time, good pace of play, nice course and ridiculously cheap.
Very well worth a visit, the staff are very friendly and the course although not long places a premium on putting your ball in the right place.
We will definitely play here again.
Course is in good shape. Fun holes with elevation changes. Some tight holes with some open holes Good variety. Greens were nice as we're the fairways. Great value on tee off. Play it soon the course close at the end of Nov. Great day playing a foursome let us play through. There are still good people with etiquette out there
I like this course and play it to improve my golf game. There are FEW challenging holes. The course is not rated so you cannot post your scores to GHIN or any handicap program. Green fees are a steal. Cart and staff are good. Weather started out cold and wet, sun came out and warmed it up. Overall a good day !
Good course, great price.
Always enjoy playing this course. It is in good condition, especially the greens. Staff is always friendly and helpful. Price is outstanding for a weekend and pace of play was good also (4 hrs).
The course was in great shape and was an excellent value for the money. All the staff members were friendly and accommodating.
The front 9 played fairly easy (shot a 41) but the back 9 was very difficult and challenging. Lots of hills and valleys, several blind greens, completely different. Really enjoyed the course, would like to try to play again.
