PA's Hidden Gem
Woodloch is in an isolated area of the Northern Poconos. Despite the location its worth the drive to play it! The course is not overly long (6500 from the tips, just over 6000 from blacks) so you don't have to be a bomber to get around. The elevation changes and contoured greens present the biggest challenge. Despite being located in the woods the course is relatively wide open. The most likely places to lose a ball are on the Par 5s due to forced carries.
The Par 5s at Woodloch are the weak link imo. Most reasonable hitters must layup off the tee on at least two of them. All 4 are visually impressive but below average in terms of design. The Par 3s might not impress some due to their length (all under 175 yards from tips). I'm a fan of shorter par 3s so I considered it a bit refreshing when so many modern courses have 220 yard behemoths. The par 4s are all awesome imo and easily the strength of the course. 18 is a helluva finishing hole!
The course plays through a community so there's houses and condos all over. Thankfully, they don't crowd the course and are all "upscale". There's also some real adventurous drives between holes. Especially the one from the 13th green to the 14th tee!
Course conditions were very good but could use some refinement. The bunkers were playable not needed a little TLC . The greens were a little slower than I like.
The clubhouse and restaurant are excellent. As is the staff!
Worth the drive
Drove 2 hours knowing how beautiful the course is and anticipating a wide open course due to time of year and day. Arrived a few minutes late, but the staff was great and got me going right away. I was a single was right behind a 4some who pleasantly waved me through. Course was in great shape, other then fairs ways being aerated recently. Played in 2 1/2 hours only going through one other group. This course is so lush, tall pines everywhere and great views everywhere. Such a beautiful place.
A must play course
Tough but fair course. Beautiful views and well maintained. A real pleasure to play but not suited for a beginner.
Great layout and incredible views
This course has a great layout and the fairways are in excellent shape. The greens are being aerated so they were a bit bumpy. The sand traps need lots and lots of work. Overall great day on a beautiful course.
Beautiful course, tough greens, unforgiving terrain. If you miss by an inch you could be dead. Good shots can turn bad in a hurry. Driver is not always, if ever the best option. Signature hole is 14. If time permits, hit from the gold and try to carry the 220 yard gorge! Overall it's worth the money at full price (I played there two days in a row, once at full price) so any deal makes it even better!
Better every time!
My family has a house in the Springs, so I have played this course many times and it never gets old. Buy a yardage book! This point cannot be over stated. I have a book that I have used over the years and have marked the different locations for clubbing. But even on your first trip, this book will make your round so much more enjoyable as you will know exact locations and distances of everything. And there is a lot to know. Layup shots are required on many holes because there are carries that even John Daly couldn't hit over. Fairways are in great shape and the course is maintained marvelously. Greens are fast and true.
An excellent course and worth the time and money.
The score card should have a coarse layout on the card. Challenging yet worth the money maybe the layout can be on the tee of every hole.q
Golf in Heaven
This is what I would expect golf to be like in heaven. The course was in great condition, the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Being our first time playing the course manager gave us a yardage book and tips to navigate us through the course. It was a great experience and can't wait to play there again. Thanks to Golg Now for making the course available.
Great layout and good challenge
I enjoyed this course a lot. the layout is challenging and the course very well maintained. Staff was efficient and customer focused. Range balls thrown in, and if you want to practice they have a top notch particle facility. Food cart continued making the rounds even though we were one of the last groups out this weekday evening.
All tee boxes and fairways were in good shape. Greens rolled well, and I'm thankful there was rain overnight and the morning hindering cutting or rolling as I'd have been sparked even worse than I was. I play regular but am not your top player, yet I scored well when I made quality shots. But not pay attention to danger spots behind greens or drop offs if you come up short and you're penalized. It required focus and paying close attanetion to yardage. Had I not had my Garmin G8 approach to estimate layups, I'd have rally done poorly. Even with that several holes did me in on the back nine.
The trees were viewable but not the major hazard, which I appreciated. Views were great and the homes lining the course were usually not in play.
If you haven't figured it out I really loved this course and the challenge it gave me. Best I've played ever, equaling some at Myrtle Beach, in my opinion, and priced better. I like mountain courses and a challenge, and this gave me both. I'll come back again when I can come to the area and try to punish my game again. ☺️
allways a good day great course
bunkers could use some fresh sand but this course is allways a nice experience greens fast but true
Worth the trip
My cousin Bob and I drove down from Great Bend on 4/30/16 and played under overcast skies, with high 50's temps. The course was lightly trafficked, but we were paired with a gentleman by the name of Tom and his young son, John. We thoroughly enjoyed the course and the company. You really need to bring your "A" game here. The course is very hilly and driver can get you in trouble on the par 5's, if you don't know where the trouble is. This is definitely the kind of course you play better at after the second or third time. The greens had been aerated a couple/three weeks earlier and were a little slow and inconsistent, but that's to be expected this early in the season. The carts were gas and well maintained. There is no "walking" this course, unless you're a tri-athlete. Traps were clean and mostly shale free, but the sand is typically coarse. Staff were friendly and the pro shop, bar and snack window were efficient and professional. All in all, it was a great day. Be mindful that the course is out in the middle of nowhere and takes some time on winding, secondary roads to get there.
This is a very hilly course with many forced carries. It will test every club in the bag. It's a course that should be played a number of times to really appreciate. The scorecard will give Tees played/Suggested Hcp. Play from the tees that match your Hcp. and you will enjoy a great round.
Shot makers course
Played from the tips it plays as a quite a challenge. Tees are available for all skill levels. Lots of forced carries and greens have lots of undalation. Not your typical resort course
A tricked up resort layout
3 par fives that force a layup for even the long hitters and a joke for anyone else! An average layout at best and no way as advertised as a traditional layout. Save your money and play somewhere else like the nicklaus layout at great bear!
Beautiful and Challenging Course
Beautiful course, quiet and in great condition. Plan to lose a lot of balls. GPS strongly suggested. The greens are relentless - by far the toughest in the area. Fun course to play, staff was great and the facilities are top notch. You won't be disappointed you came.
First time on course but not my last for sure. Me and a friend drove from Westchester, NY. It wasn't easy to find but once we did we loved everything about Woodloch Springs. The staff couldn't be nicer and the course was a blast.
I am planning on one more trip before winter.
Awesome golf course.
First class from start to finish. The course was in excellent shape. Great Tee Boxes, cut out fairways, soft sand, excellent greens. Best course I've played all year!!! Only complaint was the pro shop was out of logo balls which was totally ok because that's another reason to get back again for another round. I highly recommend.
Didn't want to spend the 3 hour drive to this course because of the cost. However, the pro was "outta sight" friendly and professional, the staff was great and the food at the restaurant was very good. As for the course, it was tight but every hole had a nice landing area. I'll play it again but from the back tees to see how this changes the character of the course. All in all, it was a very pleasant day. Left at 8 am, played at 1 pm and was home by 8 pm. I'll do it again but not on a regular basis due to the distance. Nice to know that I have a great course in my back pocket.
The course was in excellent shape and very playable for both men and women. Definitely not a walking course. Staff was very friendly and had an enjoyable day. We will go back often.
