CC in the Poconos

Great holes to play; it plays hard with tight fairways and lots of woods; Holes are too far apart; your driving on roads and around neighborhoods to get to holes. Also food items very expensive!!

Mixed feelings

The layout is different but interesting. Overall the course was in decent shape, but could use a little maintenance on the tee boxes. My biggest issue today was the lack of drinking water available on the course and the food cart came by once on the 2nd hole and never returned. It was 92 degrees and these services were very much needed by all the players. Lucky my playing partner brought a cooler with six bottles of cold water!

Poconos Country Club

We loved this course! The elevation of many of the holes provided us with opportunities to challenge our game as well as beautiful views. We will definitely be back next year!

Be prepared to drive Green to the next three

Had not played this course for about 10 years. Forgot how long it was to go from green to next tee it does take a while the courses is in very very good condition as it was probably the hottest day of the year close to 100°. The people inside especially the girl behind the desk was awesome and Could not have been nicer the course itself may be difficult for some people who sprayed the ball . The greens were a little slow but that’s because I think they were afraid to cut them being that it’s been so hot . If you get a chance you definitely should try playing the course I think you may enjoy

You need a lot of balls to play this course

A lot of hills and driving to play this course. Pretty views. A lot of weekend warriors. Slow play. No rangers around. A lot of waiting on the tee box while others spend a lot of time looking for lost balls.

Excellent course - bring extra balls

This is such a fun course to play. Play here occasionally and enjoy it almost every time. Greens were in very good shape, fairways good and sand traps mostly in pretty good shape. If you don't lose any balls on this course, you are a very good golfer. Bring extra golf balls. Price on GN was good. I think it was the 14th, view was absolutely spectacular. You cannot walk this course as it has about 8 miles of cart path through nice woodlands.

Scenic, and definitely a challenge!

If you're not a sharpshooter, then prepare to lose more balls than a herd of bulls at a Rocky Mountain Oyster festival. These greens are definitely challenging! The greens are as far apart as people say, but the trip between holes is actually very pleasant. All in all, it's a great course to run through.
