Jack Frost - Great Play but locally chilly reception
Great Golf course in wonderful condition. Very challenging and it can play long fron the black and championship tees. Wonderful mountain course with great variety and spansive greens. Numerous pin position opportunities to play again and again.
Not crowded during mid week and you can play in well under 4 hours. Great getaway course. We travelled 90 minutes from Philadelphia to beat the heat and humidity. 10 degrees cooler and far less humidity!
Negative concern was reception from local players and members who consider this their own golf course and have no respect for guests.. We were a twosome and expected to wait for groups ahead. We caught the groups ahead of us on the third hole who had consolidated to a sixem. A caravan of carts! They did not offer nor would not allow us to play through. We slowly followed their play from 3 thru 8 until they split up to avoid detection from the proshop on the ninth hole. We watched as they replayed shots and practiced repeat putts. We waited on every tee and in every fairway.
Thank you to them for leaving after 9! No marshalling on-course for observation for pace of play. We played the front in over 2 hrs and 30 minutes and the back in less than 1 hr and 30. minutes.
Will would certainly play again but would not hestitate to contact the proshop if confronted with a similar situation. They need to police pace of play not just talk about it!

One of the top five courses in the northeast. Great shape from tees to greens.

The course was nice but they really need a clubhouse and a better patio the conditions were ok but really wet I think it could have a better drainage system the cart girl was really nice though. All in all a good time

What an awesome course. We played on a saturday and it was as nice a public course as I have played.
Course was busy but pace was Excellent as we played in 4:20 which is great for a busy public course. The conditions were top notch...greens were fast and smooth probably rolling around 10-10.5. Fairways were immaculate and we'll manicured. Bunkers were in good shape.
The best part of the place is the staff, very accommodating and nice.
I highly recommend this gem!!

Good Balue out of Tee-Time Book
Very little to complain about here! Fine greens, practice facilities, putting green and overall course conditions. A sufficient challenge to the best of golfers and relatively fair. Lots of elevation changes that add to the challenge. Clubbing will require an extra effort to get it right Proper selection will save quite a few strokes. Enjoyed the round with no complaints from any of my playing partners.

Best of the Poconos - Hidden Gem!
I've played here numerous times and have always found the course to be fair, well maintained and always a great value. Greens range from fast to slow depending on aeration sessions in spring/fall. When the greens are in good shape, they're the truest in the poconos (and quickest). From tee to green, the course is very fair with no hidden trouble and the couse plays different from each set of tees. Doesn't matter the players handicap - the course is challenging for all boxes, a true test for any player. Pace of play can vary depending on the weather - if it's sunny and the wind is down; the tee sheet fills up fast and the rounds get longer - when the wind is up the course opens up and you can get a round in very easily under 4.5 hours. The proshop guys are great and the cart girls/cafe attendants are friendly, courteous and overall great people.
The practice facilities are great - grass tee boxes with 10-15 'bays' marked off, an approach range as well as a multi-tiered putting green commensurate with what players will see on course. Top notch for a younger course - will only get better with age.
