About

Holes 18
Type Public
Par 72
Length 6964 yards
Slope 146
Rating 74.3

There are 27 holes of championship golf available at Blue Ridge Trail Golf Club. They are divided into three nines, naturally named Blue, Ridge and Trail, that are played in different 18-hole combinations. The holes have an advantageous setting amidst mountains and trees, offering both privacy and scenery. The setting is made even more peacefully secluded by the fact that there are no parallel fairways throughout the entire golf course. The holes were carefully carved from the forests and hillsides, providing each nine with a different character. With four water holes, the Ridge/Trail combination has the most water of any of the courses. There are also strategically placed bunkers throughout but the towering, mature trees present the most formidable challenges. The course starts off rather gently with the player-friendly Ridge, but becomes progressively more difficult on the back nine.

Great walk in the woods

Walked the blue course and had a wonderful time. Course was in great shape in the late fall and I loved the layout through the woods and up and down the mountain.

Great track

Played here a couple of times in different seasons and I must say, the three (3) courses are maintained very well. My husband enjoyed these courses as well and was very pleased of the pace of play. Finished 18 holes in 3.5 hours.

Very nice layout and a nice course to play and enjoy golf as it should be. Sand bunkers are easy to get out of just a pleasant course to enjoy a round.

If you want a relaxing round, come play here. It is worth the trip.

Thumbs up

Went here based on reviews of local public courses - in Hazleton from out of town and was looking to sneak in a quick 18.

Walked up without a tee time as a single at 8am and the crew got me right out. Played the blue and trail courses.

Everything is lined with trees- a lot of elevation changes, very fun course to play. The greens and tee boxes were in fantastic shape.

Really great value - I’ll definitely be back on future trips

Bring 4 Friends

Course in terrific shape. Only complaint is we were behind a fivesome starting at the turn, Management unconcerned. when reported to starter. Skipped the hole bypassing the group. Played 17 holes. They significantly slowed the round for players behind them. We finished at least two holes ahead of the problem. Imagine course will start to thin out but be forewarned. Or is that fivewarned?

Great course

Our first time playing Blue Ridge and we will definitely be back. Challenging course, but the GPS units in the cart were a great help, being able to touch a point and know how far to hit. We were a 3some, but got paired up with a 4th who had played there before which was also helpful. Very scenic and well kept.

worth the trip

this place has everything you want and more. Great speed on the greens and fantastic layout. Staff is superb. In particular, I loved the granular sand in the bunkers - made for very consistent lies and fair play-ability out of them. If you have a chance to play here - it is totally worth the drive!
