Worth the ride

I live an hour away but it's worth the ride. The staff is friendly, the food is always good, and the course is always in great shape. The views are nice especially in the fall.

An Affordable Gem..

I played Sugarloaf with a buddy of mine and we were thoroughly impressed with the course conditions. It was my first time playing there in a long time. The course was in fantastic shape. Fairways and rough were quite lush and well maintained. The greens were in remarkable shape and were pretty quick. The course proved quite challenging. I definitely enjoyed the round and would like to play there again real soon. I just wish it was closer to my house.

Beautiful course, beautiful setting

Sugarloaf is a hidden gem, slightly off the beaten path. The course is in wonderful shape. There are a couple off lengthy par 3s and also the bunkers play fair. But beware of the greens; they were scary fast , some with different tiers. You need to get within 8-10 feet for a chance to make your putts

fair course with nice size greens

course was in good condition, the only thing it needs are 150yd markes in the fairway so you can judge the depth and not drive through the fairway and shows you the direction of the hole.

A Gem

Play among Pennsylvania farm land with bucolic views off many tees. Be advised, playing from the blues involves playing a 266 yard par 3 with a creek in front at the 200 to 220 distance. You'll need to flight the ball a full 240 yards. I found the whites challenging enough. Traps are well groomed though they lack the fine white sand. Its a coarser product with the occasional small rock. Fairways are beautifully maintained and fairly wide. Everybody on staff has a genuine air of helpfulness. If ever I pass through the area again I'll make a special effort to tee it up here again. Try El Mariachi's Mexican restaurant. The neighborhoods rough but the food is great.

One of the best public courses for the money!!

Play this course often found it on golfnow @ discounted rate what a steal. Course is always well maintained except for a few bunkers but they are working on them. The greens are some of the best in the area & true to putt on. You can't go wrong if you are looking for an enjoyable round in the scenic Sugarloaf valley.

Great first round of the year

Course was in great shape and our pace of play may have been more related to some average players in our foursome. Value on Golf Now was excellent as our foursome played for less than $100 all in. Course is pretty wide open which provides some flexibility for first round of the year. Overall very positive experience.

Coming along nicely..

Sugarloaf is one of my favorite courses! Played there earlier and it was nice, but with aerified greens, it wasn't fun putting. The greens have healed, are rolling nicely, and the rest of the course is starting to green up too! A few weeks, maybe a month, and this course will be pristine!! I'd recommend it to anybody, especially those who can't keep ball in play. Sugarloaf is open enough that you can get in trouble, but still have a chance at scrambling for pars.

Bubba Buoy

Considering the winter/spring we've had the course was very playable. Was a beautiful day which has been rare so this is why pace of play was quite slow. This course come summer is a top course in the area. Greens are always incredible that roll true and consistent. I probably will play this course 15-20 times this year. Worth every penny.
