The Inn at Pocono Manor offers two championship golf courses, conveniently located less than two hours from New York, New Jersey, and Philadelphia. Surrounded by the beauty of the Poconos, the inn has earned a spot on the National Registry of Historic Places. George Fazio designed the West Course, and the East Course was Donald Ross' creation. The East Course, the original layout, has hosted a number of legendary players, including Arnold Palmer and Sam Snead, since 1912. Ross carefully sculpted the mountainous landscape to create a course that is both challenging and memorable. It is shorter and tighter than the other course but they are equal in level of difficulty. The golf course is defined by the interesting water hazards that come into play on several holes, but the scenic views are also a draw.

Great Time -- as always

Great time today.
Course is in very good shape: Tee Boxes, Fairways & Greens all in tip-top shape.

Pace of play was no problem; finished is just over 4 hours bit never waited to hit.

only complaint is that the cart path is a shambles. There are fewer holes & bumps on the grass.

I highly recommend this course!

Not bad

Price this year is super high. You can golf a course like Mt. Airy or jack frost for a similar price with much better coarse right in the area. I like this coarse but 15 bucks more a round then last year is a little crazy.

Very different course

This course was challenging and very different but a lot of fun. There were numerous holes that were unlike anything I’ve played before. For example a par 3 with no visible green.

Quirky Layout

Very strange layout. 2 par 3s on front side are very poorly designed. First is 150 yds and you cannot see the green from the tee. The second is 77 yds and plays about 60 since it is severely downhill. Course was in fair shape overall. Cart paths need a ton of work, greens were smooth albeit a bit slow. Clubhouse was basically closed due to covid however it didn’t appear as if it would be a place you would want to spend a lot of time anyway. Overall this was probably a very nice place 40 years ago but for 2020 it is not up to par compared to a place like Jack Frost which is 20 mins away.

Hidden gem

If you like the history of golf course design and the golden era of golf. This is a true classic. Not extremely long but demanding for shot shapes. Greens were soft but rolling true. Great course!
