Great fall day!
4 deer on 17 and 7 turkeys on 18, 3 of which sat on a fence. What a great day for golf and a beautiful course. Stay out of the rough.
Got to the course to find out it is cart path only. Booked on golf now so cannot get a refund if I do not play. Plus drove an hour to get there. It was so wet, it squished almost everywhere we walked. We hit a nice drive and it is laying in mush with grass so long it is difficult to find the ball. We were not told the greens were recently fertilized. It smelled so bad, making us sick to our stomachs that we did not finish our round. Worst round of the year. Very disappointed.
All of the sand traps under water,,,,fairways wet and notcutin days,,,muddy and,tee boxswere in poor condition
Too many long par 4's
Way too many long par 4's. And 3 par 3's 180 plus. 9 handicap, but 63 years old, with some short par 4's makes the 6300yds plus from the whites that much longer. Very nice course and nice condition why I gave it 4 stars but if your not real long, no chance to score. No senior tees so that wasn't an option. Recommend the course with the qualification of some of hole's length.
Awesome!! First time playing this course but what a fortunate discovery thanks to a great golfnow rate. Course was fair with rough just beginning to grow teeth. Greens were in fantastic shape just barely showing early spring top aeration marks. Rolling true and not furry at all. Vistas are amazing passing by waterfalls, the old inn and endless hiking trails. Service could have not been better. Everyone, from the young girl in the pro shop to the cart guy who greeted us post round and cleaned our clubs, were so accommodating. We had such a great day we decided to head to the taproom for dinner where the theme of amazement continued. Having now toured the inn as well, I can't wait to book a return round and a stay at sky top.
Course should be closed
Called VIP after this disgraceful experience.
Upon arrival informed that hot deal was to play South 9 two times.
Ankle high grass on tee boxes, fairways like poorly cared for cow pasture, as much grass in bunkers as sand, wildlife droppings omnipresent, greens punched , lumping and SLOW.
I understand other 18 is nice . Golf Now and Splt Rock Resort should terminate this deal. Not all golfers would take a chance with GN or SRR after this fiasco.
This was beautiful. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The corse was very chalenging for a beginner. I haven't played for a long time and finally went out with my family. I had a blast and will defiantly play again.
Skytop is a great layout with a great reputation but had slipped a bit as the previous general manager of the resort didn't focus on golf. The current one invested heavily in more staff, new equipment and it shows. Course is in great shape. We played on a Saturday morning and it wasn't too crowded. Played another day after 3 and basically had the course to ourselves. Rates were $50 with cart which is a good price. Weekday is $35 I think. I'd recommend giving it a try.
Old course but beautiful
Skytop is a wonderful resort with a very nice golf course. The greens were true and fast,the fairways were super,no leaves for early nov,and the finishing hole was tough!
course was in really good shape for time of the season
good value for the money course in great condition
Well groomed, challenging course in a beautiful location.
The course was in good shape and the staff were friendly and helpful. The wind was blowing and made the course more difficult. Still, it a fair test of golfing skills and the scenery was great.
SkyTop in the Fall
It was a gorgeous fall day and the course was in great shape. Carts were supplied with tees and towels. Greens were well maintained with well defined fringe cuts. Despite it being in fall, the fairways were , for the most part, devoid of leaves. The views were fantastic of the hills and the fall foliage. We had a great time! we will be back.
typical poconos course. some nice views and a nice course layout. i played by myself and had 2 older couples in front of me but they kept a good pace
Coming here just off the street is kind of pricy but finding a deal on golf now made it much more affordable
Great golf course
Played Friday afternoon. Course was empty so pace of play was great. Course was challenging and extremely well maintained. Would absolutely play here again.
Great price for a very nice resort course. First time here and it was a pleasant surprise how nice the course was. Actually the whole resort was pretty nice especially compared to other Poconos resorts in the area. Course layout and conditions were very nice. It looked like the greens have been aerated a while back so some of the back nine greens were a little bumpy. It should be really smooth in a couple of weeks or so. I will definitely return.
Nice resort golf course
The golf course is part of skytop resort. We played in a windy afternoon. The wind comes from different direction. It is very difficult to judge the distance with wind. The green is very tricky and hard to read. It is difficult to score well when we played there for the 1st time.
great course, scenic views
one of the most wonderful properties in all of the poconos..course is in great shape, price on golfnow.com was incredibly low for the quality of course..only weird thing was the resort guests walking around the course..but would highly recommend to anyone
