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.

Thumbs up

Went here based on reviews of local public courses - in Hazleton from out of town and was looking to sneak in a quick 18.

Walked up without a tee time as a single at 8am and the crew got me right out. Played the blue and trail courses.

Everything is lined with trees- a lot of elevation changes, very fun course to play. The greens and tee boxes were in fantastic shape.

Really great value - I’ll definitely be back on future trips

Bring 4 Friends

Course in terrific shape. Only complaint is we were behind a fivesome starting at the turn, Management unconcerned. when reported to starter. Skipped the hole bypassing the group. Played 17 holes. They significantly slowed the round for players behind them. We finished at least two holes ahead of the problem. Imagine course will start to thin out but be forewarned. Or is that fivewarned?

Great course

Our first time playing Blue Ridge and we will definitely be back. Challenging course, but the GPS units in the cart were a great help, being able to touch a point and know how far to hit. We were a 3some, but got paired up with a 4th who had played there before which was also helpful. Very scenic and well kept.

worth the trip

this place has everything you want and more. Great speed on the greens and fantastic layout. Staff is superb. In particular, I loved the granular sand in the bunkers - made for very consistent lies and fair play-ability out of them. If you have a chance to play here - it is totally worth the drive!

Vacation Traveling

This course is outstanding! We played the Blue & Ridge courses. Greens were in great shape, fairways cut & enormous amount of grass! Traps were all the same texture and raked. If you want a challenge play Blue Ridge Trail GC!

Played Blue Ridge set up from blue tees

Played early morning, some blue holes still were wet and had standing water in areas. Overall, it was still one of best courses I played all year. A true test of your ability.

Never been disappointed with playing here.

Never had a bad round playing at BRT. Just started playing the Seniors tees. Very friendly course but challenging. I think that it is one of the best courses in eastern Pennsylvania. If I lived closer I would be a member.
