Type Public
Par 72
Length 6965 yards
Slope 144
Rating 74.5

Blue Ridge Trail Golf Club boasts 27 holes of championship golf that are played in three 18-hole combinations. The three different nines are natural named Blue, Ridge, and Trail. Tucked away in the hills of northeastern Pennsylvania, the golf courses provide stunning scenery and views. All of the holes were carefully carved from the surrounding woodlands and molded into the hillsides. An abundance of trees characterizes the course, giving all of the holes a secluded feel that is further enhanced by the design, which doesn't feature any parallel fairways. The Trail/Blue Course combines the shortest and longest nines but both are considered slightly more challenging than the Ridge nine. The Trail nine possesses two of the four water holes at the club. There is a combination for every skill level and four sets of tees make the nines even more accommodating.

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!

Vacation Traveling

This course is outstanding! We played the Blue & Ridge courses. Greens were in great shape, fairways cut & enormous amount of grass! Traps were all the same texture and raked. If you want a challenge play Blue Ridge Trail GC!

Played Blue Ridge set up from blue tees

Played early morning, some blue holes still were wet and had standing water in areas. Overall, it was still one of best courses I played all year. A true test of your ability.
