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.

Consistently great

Every time I play here, the course is in excellent shape. Pace of play was awful but it was 65 degrees on November 6th. Everyone wanted at least one more round until the 8 months of winter takes over.

Beautiful Property

This course is great..:elevation changes, tee boxes with natural landscape in views, challenging, fast greens. It has everything. The timing of nice weather in early October presents fall foliage views that are difficult to match on a golf course. Pace of play was a little slow for a weekday,

Great Day for cheap golf

The hot deal really made the course worth it and having 27 holes makes the course unique and more fun as well as makes you want to go back to get a different set of 18 holes in

Blur Ridge

For how dry it has been lately the course was in very good shape. The greens were great, the bunkers nicely raked, and the rest of the course was very nice considering the dry weather, One of the best courses in the area.
