Rated 3 out of 5 by bradco short, tight and quirky
got a great deal to play at Fernwood and took the nice drive up there from Philly. After reading the reviews that were pretty positive I wanted to see for myself.. The front 9 plays 2990 yds from the back tees and with the elevation, thin air and firm ground the course played much shorter than that.. Even the 600 yd par 5 6th hole was reachable in 2 for the good player.. For the most part the conditions were good and greens had few if any ball marks.. The back 9 had some really quirky, tight and awkward holes. The sand traps were hard pan in most cases and need work.. The 350 yd 18th hole plays downhill and both of us drove the ball within 10 yds of the green. Fernwood is a decent course and certainly a great value for what we paid but its far from being a what any good player would consider great golf..

Rated 3 out of 5 by tgmassey Tough layout
The greens were very well kept as well as the rest of the course. The negatives are:
•Severely sloped fairways
•lose many balls in the bottom of the fairways (The slope)
•Too many people wandering around on the back 9 holes. Guests, not golfers!

Rated 4 out of 5 by t2207 A solid 4-stars!
We enjoyed our round very much and while it wasn't anything spectacular it was quite serviceable. Not crowded on a Saturday afternoon, so that's a plus. At the turn, we got some hot dogs which were good. They had a cart girl going around which we saw a couple of times. All the things a good golf course should have.
The front was not nearly as tight as described in some of the posts and while the back 9 does bend around the villas /condos, they don't affect anything. A good array of holes with some elevated greens, short par threes and blind shots.
A little hard to find, but once there the staff picked up our clubs and from the parking lot in a cart and let us on the course before our tee time as a two-some because we were ready and due to tee off after two four-somes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by chippendale Front nine much easier to play than back nine.
PLayed with my grandson nine holes front nine, several times. Back nine to tight & blind greens for beginners. Golf course is the best thing about resort.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SupNewt Quirky, but fun!
We booked at the last minute in the afternoon while on a golf trip to the Poconos.
Course has some 'quirky' holes for sure , traps were like hitting off the road, but for the most part, fairways and greens were in pretty good shape for early spring. More than a few blind shots.....
Front 9 plays through wooded areas, back 9 through the Resort.
Course isn't long, but a well placed tee shot is needed on many holes.
Having a cart was nice as we hadn't played here before and it was nice to take a ride up and get a lay of the land on holes like #4.
We absolutely owned the place as there was nobody in front of us, and ripped through the round.
Staff was friendly and fun.
All in all, a good time!
