Trail/Blue at Blue Ridge Trail Golf Club
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.

For how dry it has been lately the course was in very good shape. The greens were great, the bunkers nicely raked, and the rest of the course was very nice considering the dry weather, One of the best courses in the area.
We drove over an hour to play this course. Great value. The course conditions were superb for as many rounds get played on it. The greens were a bit slow but not to the point of being a problem. Fairways, tee boxes, rough and traps were well maintained. The sand in the traps was a bit course but playable without issue. While the holes don’t have a “shot maker” feel, you can be punished for not hitting the needed spots. Definitely makes you think and sometimes scramble to recover. If you haven’t played it, you need to play all three nines.
This course, for the weather we’ve been having, was in great condition. From tee to green they really know how to take care of a course for sure. It’s been a few years since I was there and the entire staff was so accommodating and friendly. I took my older son here for the first time and he had an absolute ball playing this challenging course. He can’t wait to go back and now wants to take his friends there to play.
Found the course ro be enjoyable. Greens were in good condition and the course was well maintained.
always beautiful conditions.
This course is 1 1/2 hours from my home, but worth the drive. It is my favorite place to play in PA!!
Amazing golf course!
All I can say is WOW! If you are anywhere driving distance to this beautiful golf course, it is worth the drive! I drove 80 miles to play there and what a fantastic time I had. I took the road trip as a single golfer and got paired up with Robert, Joe and Dr. George and had a blast. Bob, the owner greeted us after the round at the clubhouse. Tony, Tyler and Rona and the staff were so friendly and welcoming. I told them I'm bringing ALL my golfing buddies back to enjoy this wonderful property. The golf GPS on the golf cart was very accurate.
The scenic golf holes were beautiful and tree lined, and you have room still for not so accurate shots on most holes. You can see the care and attention that's given to the greens and there were hardly any ball marks. I wish this course was closer to me because it's one of the top courses in Pennsylvania. Thanks again Blue Ridge Trail GC for a fun day! I'll be back soon and often.
BRT is one of my favorite courses in the area. They have very wary tee times and allow people to get out and off before the meat of the day. The layout is great, looks tough, plays a little easier. Variety of tees for different levels.
The one problem they have is over-booking the course. With 3 nines, there is no reason to stack people on top of each other. Yet, every time I play, they throw extra groups in front of us as we make the turn. We played the front - teeing off at 630am, in 1:45, then were significantly slowed on the back, where we were 2:25+.
The cart girl is hit or miss and the food ordering should be easier to access. If you order ahead of time, why isn’t it ready? The gold is great and I enjoy the course so we will be back.
Hands down one the most challenging courses in the area! You must place your tee shots well, and don't miss hit your approach shots, or you will regret it. From the ponds along the fairways to the dangerous bunkers lining the fairways, your score can easily be punished. The electric carts with built in GPS make the whooping a bit more bearable.
Tough fun course
Blue ridge is a fun challenging course. All three nine hole courses are challenging at any skill level but a lot of fun to play. The course was in excellent shape as it always is.
7:30 tee time 5 hour round
Played last week and teed off at noon. Took 5 hours. Understandable since it was a weekend afternoon. Got a tee time for 7:30 on a Saturday morning. Took 5 hours again. Waited at every tee box with the 4 some in front of us. Never once saw a ranger. Really disappointed.
Great course - Rate pf play is atrocious
I love this course but I don’t think I will ever come here on a weekend again. They send way to many groups out and it becomes impossible to finish 18 under 5 hours. It’s to the point where it really doesn’t make sense to pay the increased weekend charge because it takes so unbelievably long to play. I was talking to some guys I was paired with today and they said they never finish 18 holes because they can’t take waiting so long. Unfortunately I’ll have to only come here after work on weekdays for 9, which still isn’t very quick. Not sure if it was always like this pre COVID quarantine.
Course is in great shape, but only come here if you have a lot of time to burn!
Great 27 hole course
Great course in EXCELLENT shape!
Greens are real quick. Very enjoyable. Will definitely go again.
Great course and conditions
Blue Ridge doesn't disappoint as its always in great shape and is a good value for the money. The greens were perfect.
