Country Club of the Poconos
Excellent course, worth playing
We played mid week and got an excellent rate, course was quiet so no waiting.we went round in three and half hours.
Take your camera for some pics of some stunning holes, unfortunately I didn't.
Well worth a visit.

Lots of Driving
By that title, I don't mean with a golf club. Played horrible but a lot of that has to do with not knowing course as it was my first time here. Very well kept golf course. Fairways are pristine even though I didn't find them much. Greens are slow, and inconsistent in feel. Some are soft and roll to a stop, where as others are hard and the ball will roll out. Rough is ROUGH. The grab your club head type version. That's how golf should be though so I'm not complaining. I just would need to play better aha
Scenic views and some challenging holes. Elevation changes are crazy! Overall, a great experience and I honestly had the most fun driving the cart!! Recommend to all!

VERY VERY NICE GOLF COURSE
Played on a Thursday, after the area received about 6 inches of rain in a big Tuesday night storm (Tornado watches, several torrents of rain overnight into Wednesday). Course does not drain well. We were informed of this, but still decided to play.
The course is under 6,000 yards, but plays longer even on a nice day, with the wet fairways, it played even longer.
STRICT TARGET GOLF. No getting up and blasting it, finding it 75 yards to the left or right, and hitting it again.
Views are beautiful. They will be GORGEOUS in October.
No danger of an errant shot striking you from another hole.
Cart paths meander through the development of nice homes, but there's really nowhere that a house infringes on the course. If you hit a house, you hit a ridiculously poor shot.
The cart ride, overall, has to be several miles. The course itself runs 3 1/2 miles, and there has to be at least that much driving between holes. Crack a beverage, the 12-oz. variety, between holes 16 & 17. I'll bet that you finish it between the two holes. Has to be a 1 mile ride between 16 & 17.
Still, a beautiful golf course - caveat is that is FAR from anything.

Nice course and nice conditions
Was really happy I finally played here. It's not a long course but it is very narrow and had small greens. Lot's of blind tee shots. I only hit my driver on 3 holes.
Tee boxes are very nice, fairways and greens were in nice shape. Well maintained overall.
Some holes have some great views.
Staff was nice and very friendly.
Will play this again and will save some shots now that I know the course a little better.

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.
