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.

Good Time all Around
We've played here several times this year and are never disappointed.
the staff is friendly and helpful, the course is in great shape and the holes are challenging.
there are several blind holes that make your drives interesting and several very thin fairways that keep you nervous and careful.
if i had to complain about anything it is that the cart paths are in bad shape.
i happily recommend this course. we will certainly return.
I selected somewhat challenging because of limited options. There are probably six holes on this course that I would blow up. It is an abominable resort course. I expected some blind shots and hills but when a golf cart gets hit parked on the cart path next to a tee designing a hole with a landing area (6) so close to a tee is bad planning. I get golfers will hit errant shots but this spot is too close together. It was a challenge to figure out where to hit tee shots or whether to hit less than driver on a couple holes. Definitely a course you need to play to learn how to play it, but I won't be coming back. Greens were too soft and we hadn't had that much rain in the area to cause that.
I can only describe the layout as goofy where standing on the tee on some holes you don't know exactly where to hit and if it is driver hole or not. Four holes on the back nine need to be blown up. Greens were too soft and inconsistent. On one hole a downhill putts stops short and on another it runs 12 feet by. It's a course you need to see and play at least once to figure out how to play it. That doesn't make it a good golf course, just learning to play it. Terrible course for resort guests unless they are repeat guests.
Course was in great shape! Greens are fast! Totally enjoyed our round!! Will play it again!!
Not a real golf course. If you are looking for real golf don’t go here don’t drive out of your way. It’s part pitch and putt part par 3. Most of the holes are completely blind making this ridiculous course at times hard. As there are full trees basically hanging over the fairway. Sometimes you have only 10 feet wide of opening.
But then there are plenty of wide open 300 yard par 4. From the tips ! There is a 385 yard par 5.
People staying on the property actually drive thru the middle of the course to get to condos. Yes on the cart paths. I was actually stopped before I hit on the box and they asked me for directions!! No lie . Was the weirdest golf experience I’ve ever had. If you want a joke of a round for $25 go here
Course in great shape. Greens soft yet fast for putting. Tee boxes, fairways and rough well maintained. Played in 4 hrs without rushing. Definitely will be back.
Needed a Marshall
I ended up behind a threesome that was incredibly slow and refused to let me play through. I ended up reading 300 pages on Kindle waiting for them on every shot.
Great shape in view of dry weather
I paid $37 for green fee plus $2.95 fee charged by Golf . If I had called the course for tee time, the rate would be $29 for seniors (no fee). So, in the future I will be calling the course for the tee time.
Can’t beat the price
This is the best course in the area for the money. Cart and 18 holes. Today I had a 8:15am Tee time. I think I payed $25. I skipped the first hole (I was alone and there were 2 groups of 4 in front of me) and finished the next 17 in 2 hours. Didn’t see another soul. Not going to say it’s the most scenic but it’s a pretty course. LOTS of woods around so you will lose balls if you are a beginner like me. Bring more than a dozen.
Course is in good shape! Staff is friendly. The only thing i can suggest is that we had a foursome and in these times sometimes we could adapt better. I could ride with my friend in the same golf cart but our other 2 friends wanted To ride in separate carts. In other golf courses they do offer that but here they were charged another 15 dollars for the cart. Not a big deal but we were literally the last ones playing so the carts were available. Other than that course is good
Fun course. Hilly
Staff was very friendly. Course was fun. Had some
Challenges , one or Two long par 5’s.
I went with my husband and son and really wasn't expecting much. However, the greens and the fairways were well maintained. Times were set about 15 minutes apart, but it wasn't bad. The courses were challenging, but not over the top. We had a great time.
