Country Club of the Poconos
You can not be on a time crunch as the holes are very far apart. It was not busy day we played so no wait. Some spectacular views. Front nine is in housing development but back nine is all woods. Front nine is tight also.

One of the Best
Another superb outing at one of my favorite courses. Has always in great shape and is like a good friend we visit time and again. Memorable holes despite my forgettable golf. : )

Not bad for a Holiday
This was my 1st time at this course. I started as a single but paired up. Absolutely no wait time, it truly felt like we had the course to ourselves. Some of the tee boxes were in rough shape, but it did not hamper play one bit. Only disappointing thing was on the 17th hole there is a beautiful flag pole coming up the hill before you tee off, but no flag was flying on MEMORIAL DAY. I just thought that was a shame. Overall i got a great value on a beautiful day and would love to play it again another day.

We had a great time practicing on the course. We arrived in the parking lot to find only 3 cars in the parking lot. The course was completely empty on a Saturday afternoon. The course winds through a huge development, many of the holes are right next to houses. Some holes have 500 to 600 yards of driving between holes. You have to follow arrows and signs the whole time from hole to hole. Overall my son and I had a great time.

This course has great view and layout.
I love this course.
The view of the course was terrific.
However, the conditions of fairways and tee box were not good compared with last year.
They need to be improved.

Not a good choice for the first round of the year
My two playing partners had not touched a golf club for a while, so the forced carries on several holes led to lost balls. The scorecard should say if there is a drop area, as it was not always obvious from the hole layout. A tight course where you don't need your driver for pretty much the front nine.
/a few blind shots, and an unexpected uphill green made for an interesting and sometimes frustrating day, I felt like we were really dragging (my partners were a little deliberate with their practice swings) but we finished in 4.5 hours, and that includes the very lengthy drives between holes. VERY LENGTHY.
Some very pretty views for pictures, on long holes and par threes.
I would consider trying this course again, but only after playing other courses in the area for more experience.

this course ranks amongst the most challenging course in the Poconos, in my opinion. I was by friends that I would not like the course, because, of the insane driving distance between holes. While the there was great distance between tee boxes, the scenic vistas that were opened up because of the drive made those distances worth it.
The greens were slow due to heavy rain and snow flurries the night prior, but overall they were in great shape.
Every hole poses its own unique set of challenges.
I will definitely play this course again, you should too.
