About

Holes 18
Type Semi-Private
Par 72
Length 7095 yards
Slope 140
Rating 74.8

Nestled in the rolling hills of northeastern Pennsylvania, Blue Ridge Trail Golf Club offers 27 holes of championship golf that were carefully carved from woodlands and valleys. There are no parallel fairways throughout the entire course, giving each hole a secluded setting. The golf course offers plenty of variety, which has made it a popular venue for outings and tournaments. The holes are divided into nines that are played in three different 18-hole combinations. The Blue/Ridge Course is both scenic and challenging. The courses are almost equal in length but the Blue nine is considered slightly more difficult, although the Ridge nine possesses two of the few water holes at the club. Mature trees frame most of the holes and there are also strategically placed bunkers along the greensides.

Good day of Golf

Course was in good condition. Pace of play was great. Played the Trail and Blue Courses. Courses played long because of the wind.
Surprised to see a beer / snack cart was in use.
Will play here again this year.

Great track to enjoy golf.

Blue/Ridge is my favorite 18 here. Course is in great shape at this time. Every time we are up in the area my husband always wants to play this course.

It has the quality of a Championship course similar to some of USGA venue I played before. A truly hidden gem.
It is challenging enough and you do get rewarded when you stick it. Do not come up short, those greenside bunkers are everywhere. No big deal, just take a full swing about 2 inches behind the ball and you will hit it close under that flag...

In the summer these greens, are pretty close to a true roll. I just love playing this course.

Thanks to all the people that maintain this course. Hope to play more this year...

Great walk in the woods

Walked the blue course and had a wonderful time. Course was in great shape in the late fall and I loved the layout through the woods and up and down the mountain.

Great track

Played here a couple of times in different seasons and I must say, the three (3) courses are maintained very well. My husband enjoyed these courses as well and was very pleased of the pace of play. Finished 18 holes in 3.5 hours.

Very nice layout and a nice course to play and enjoy golf as it should be. Sand bunkers are easy to get out of just a pleasant course to enjoy a round.

If you want a relaxing round, come play here. It is worth the trip.
