A gem in the Poconos
Saw that the course had made the Golf Magazine's list of "top courses you can play" in PA and decided to give it a try. It turned out to be a great decision.... fantastic layout w/ just the right amount of doglegs, elevation changes and forced carries; great view everywhere; not too crowded (3.5 hr round which doesn't happen too often these days); friendly staff; very nice practice/warm-up facility. The only negative was that the greens were too slow. I have played at other courses on the list, and this place should definitely be rated higher than some of them (like Berkleigh, Lederach, and so on). Although the course is tucked in the Poconos, it was fairly easy to get to - just off the PA Turnpike/I-80. I will definitely be playing here again, soon.

Always love this course!
My son(s) and I play Jack Frost 1 to 2 times per week. I think it's by far the best course in the area. We usually play weekday afternoons where the pace is great. Well maintained and always challenging. From the novice to expert... you'll love your round at Jack Frost.

Amazing Golf Course!
I have the opportunity to play a lot of different golf courses and Jack Frost ranks in my top 5. EVERY single hole is amazing. This courses layout and landscaping is one of the best in the Northeast for a newly made course. The only thing that I can't fully comment on are the greens, as they were being aerated. If you are in the pocono region, this is a course you have to play!

Played it for the fist time. Had a blast. Each hole was very private, secluded and challenging. Course was layed out very nicely. Didn't care for the location of a few bunkers in the middle or near the center of the fairways. Will definitely play it again.

One of the nicest in the area.
I've played Jack Frost a couple of times a year for the last two or three years. This course, in my opinion, is probably the nicest public links in the area. It is well maintained, with good fairway grass and greens. Note that the "clubhouse," is the only drawback -- seems to be a termorary structure on this otherwise nice golf course.

Despite 1.5 inches of rain the previous day Jack Frost National was very playable, especially the greens. As expected the course had several spots with standing water, including bunkers, however the undulating greens were surprising firm and fast, probably running at 11 or better on the stimp. This course has six dogleg rights and six dogleg lefts. It forces you to work the ball in both directions and hit every club in your bag. Highly recommend this golf course. The only downside was a pace of play that reached nearly 5 hours due to a much needed cart path only policy for the day.
