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.

It's our first time play at this course, it's somewhat challenging course, some hole that you can't see the green when you tee. Should be nice in summer time.

A little quirky, but I really enjoyed it. I would have liked to play it again, but our golf week was over. Get the sheet from the clubhouse that describes how to best play each hole -- if you've never played the course, you'll need it on at least a couple of the holes (like the first par 3).

If/when I get to golf in the Poconos again, this course is definitely on my list.

The restaurant was closed for a private function, so I can't comment on it.

I like this course and try to get there 3 or 4 times a year. For a mountain course there are not excessive slanted lies. And the layout keeps errant golf balls from flying onto your space. Greens are rather fast and kinda small. But the starter and staff are very easy going and the pace there is definitely laid back. Just a fun place to golf.

This course was a delight and a challenge from what we are used to. Surprises abound at each new hole and we enjoyed the creative layout. Rain caught us on hole 14 and along with the chilly breeze that made the final holes even tougher. With the exception of some rocky bunkers, we could not find a single thing to improve. We look forward to playing again!

Pocono Manor was in excellent condition. Hadn't played there since the late 1960's. The greens are small and there wasn't a front, middle, back designation on the pins. Only three sand traps on the entire course. Golf Now rates are definitely the way to book your tee time.

Course is in really good shape, and much improved from 3 years ago (last time I played the course). Interesting par 3 holes! Tee boxes and greens in excellent condition. Very competitive course layout, playable for beginners and intermediate (me) players.

We had a morning tee time, and already the greens had taken a lot of abuse. The course gets a lot of resort novice golfers, who "do not" fix ballmarks which make putting a challenge. Almost every cup had the rims damaged from people not paying attention when removing and replacing the flags. I commend the staff for maintaining the course in the shape they do under the circumstances.
