About

Holes 18
Type Resort
Par 72
Length 7150 yards
Slope 0
Rating 0.0

Split Rock Resort & Golf Club is nestled in the western region of the Pocono Mountains along the banks of Lake Harmony. The club has 27 holes of championship golf as well as an 18-hole miniature golf course for the kids. Split Rock's North Course is an 18-hole layout that is supplemented by the South nine, which can be combined with either the front or back nine of the North. Stretching to 7,150 yards from the tips, the North Course offers plenty of room with several holes that will appeal to long hitters. Mature trees line the fairways and strategically placed bunkers surround the greens on every hole. Water hazards make an appearance on only four holes but they are memorable ones, especially par-5 fifth where golfers have to contend with not one but two lakes.

Interesting and challenging

This was my first time playing This course I enjoyed the course layout and found it challenging and enjoyable to play. We were a twosome and played in 3 hours. The course was in good shape but the greens were a little slow. Would definitely play again not sure the pace of play normally since it is a family resort area

Great Layout

In the hills of northeast Pennsylvania two golf courses sit adjacent to each other, Jack Frost and Split Rock. Jack Frost bills itself as the finest public golf course in Pennsylvania, I played Split Rock for $30, I didn’t play Jack Frost as their greens fees were $78. I don’t know for sure, but I have a tough time imagining that the best Public golf Course in PA is $48 better than Split Rock.
Split Rock is amazing . Massive changes in elevation, Result in spectacular views of the rolling Poconos. Four sets of tee boxes on every hole give players of every level a totally different experience on virtually every hole. Doglegs, uphill, downhill, blind shots, risk reward , short holes, tough holes, you name it this course has it all. Two complaints. On the back 9 three holes run along side a highway. And for walkers, it’s a hike from green to tee on a half dozen holes, that hike is par 5 in itself.
Great course, extremely challenging, most of all fun.

Had a great day at Split Rock

We thoroughly enjoyed playing here and especially during the challenge of Covid-19. The starter and staff were friendly and helpful. First time playing here, course is in great shape, we love the layout. I would call it challenging yet fair. For $40 with cart it was a great value, that may have been a promo price due to the current situation. Club amenities like restaurant and driving range were not available but the putting green and beverage cart were there. Nice locker rooms too.

Challenging of the mind

If you want a course that the layout is open and doesn't make you think. Then go there, if you want a course that makes you think from tee to green. Then this one is it! You have to play what is in front of you not what you don't see with the blind spots, doglegs. Your layups can be rewarded where going to it will hurt you . Enjoy this beautiful course.

Mountain course

Tough mountain course. We knew they were aerating the greens, so they obviously played not so great, but the course itself was pretty beat up. I got a hot rate deal to play, but would not have been happy to play full price. Pretty location, many blind spots to hit from. Staff very friendly , and restaurant/bar upstairs nice and food good.

Great course, better staff!

On vacation and decided to play here. From the start it almost felt like being welcomed at my own course. Advice was freely given, help was always ready, and staff are just friendly and approachable.

I almost had the entire course to myself, and dictated my own pace. There is so much beautiful scenery here that I was thankful not to rush.

The course guide was spot on. It plainly says what types of shots are rewarded, and where trouble hides. Whe. They say trouble, they mean it! The rough is ROUGH. Really challenged me to play course strategy golf instead of playing free and hoping for the best.

Target golf in the mountains

Played from blue tees. Course conditions were average. The course needs some work and maintenance on fairways and greens. I was told they only have 5 workers to maintain a 27 hole course during the week. It's simply not enough if you want an elite course. No one is paying attention to the details on the course. ex: The cups were not moved on the greens in a couple days and some lady was sitting in cart talking on the phone talking about her weight loss and laundry while my partner and I were putting on the green....Funny, but are you kidding? If you want to shoot low, you really need to play it twice. I would play it again, but only at a hot deal price.

Nice Layout

Second time playing this course, unfortunately it was two years ago and forgot some of the areas that needed to be targets. Shot placement is very important and knowing distances to landing areas is a big advantage. Pace of play was good, about four hours. Course was really wet in spots, the fore it was golf cart only golf. Would definitely recommend. BTW, the cash rate at the course was the same as Golf Now, so could have saved the processing fee.
