Country Club of the Poconos
I would play this course every time I visit the poconos. Other than the distance between green to tee there is nothing to complain about.

Nice course. Challenging. A lot of blind shots. The only problem is that holes are very far apart and it takes a while to get from hole to hole. My brother shot a 78, one if his best rounds ever.

If you want a course with a view... This is the place for you. You will not believe the elevated tee boxes ( especially from the tips - even if u don't.. Walk up to take a look ). Course conditions are much better since the town decided to put some money into it. Its a tough course if you are not a straight hitter - some tight fairways and if you send it into the trees...consider it a donation. The first time we played there my playing partner lost 13 balls. There usually isn't any rangers to be found and if you get a slow group in front of you...pack a lunch. That being said, I keep going back when I'm in the area and so should you

If you are looking for beautiful vistas.....
This course is very challenging with beautiful views.
There is a long distance from greens to the next tee box which keeps the game moving.

Pace of play here aged me a year
Took us just about 3 hrs to do 9 holes so we left. Went inside to see if we could get a voucher and come back another time but they said that pace is normal and a 5 1/2 hr round is very normal. Unless you really want to kill a day, I would not suggest this place to my worst enemy.

Some previous player said the course was empty and they saw no player whole day. It is both right and wrong depends on which week day you play. CC Pocono has a crazy price and you pay $50 on every week day except Tuesday so people paid $50 on Mon, Wed, Thu or Fri and see no other players other than cart girl but if you paid $25 on Tuesday you'll see many players and 10+ miles long cart path and slow foursome (it will happened sooner or later when many player on course) will results in 5.5 hours day. It is an excellent course but if you can't spend time (5~6 hours) then pay double and do not play on Tuesday.

Nice cart ride in the pocono's
We were surprised when we arrived that only one couple was teeing off on a nice June day.
We soon found out why as the course being short is
Very difficult for most golfers.
It had some nice views of the mountains,homes,streets,cul de sacs,etc as it seemed like we may have put a dozen miles on the cart in 18 holes.not sure what Fazio was thinking when laying out the course?
No parallel fairways here.

11 miles of cart paths
Great conditions and great price but what is more impressive is how large and private this course is. Not a single fairway runs alongside another so no need to worry about someone cherry picking your ball. A few blind shots and some changes in elevation especially with one mountain of a green on 13. One thing though..... The course design does not return to the clubhouse at the turn so use those golf cart coolers
