Country Club of the Poconos
Nice Course in the Poconos
Nice course for the money on Golfnow. Short but challenging course, making use of all clubs in my bag. Course set up nicely for me. Great vistas of the Pocono Mountains. Only complaint I had was no food, only snacks. Had low Blood sugar on #7 and had to go to clubhouse but not much to eat except snack food. Made out ok though and finished round. Hardly anyone on the course for a Monday.

cart is a must
Very challenging short course that we enjoyed greatly. The only problem was the long wait making the round over 5 hours. We were lucky we were paired up with another twosome whom had played here before because we would have gotten lost many times! A cart is required because of the crazy setup of the holes layout. It winds through a development that you have to pay strict attention to otherwise you'll end up on the wrong hole. None the less we enjoyed all of the quirkiness of the course - from the dog legs to the elevated greens it made for an interesting round.

A lot of driving
The course is not long, but has a lot od "character." There are side slopes I fairways, elevated tees and greens. Drivers are not always needed or advised.
Literally, you will drive the cart further between holes than any other place I ever played
I would like to play CCP again and play it smarter.

Long distances between holes and very slow play. Some pretty views,but difficult to determine proper club selections on on large elevation change holes.

Great mountain course
Played this course for the second time and all the holes came back to me as this is such a unique setup. No two holes are alike and they are all interesting. A good day's outing. Great views and challenging.

Short but challenging Course
Many elevated tees and carries over marshland. On a number of holes, I moved to the back tees just for the experience of playing the course at its best.
Small landing areas on many holes, this is not a course where you can just hit long then go find the ball.
As others have commented, a cart is a must - there are very long hikes between most holes. Also, no refreshment cart and the club house was closed midweek.
We found the pro shop staff to be casual and helpful.

CC or P
A couple of tee boxes were worn but the course was as beautiful as ever. It's always an enjoyable challenging day of golfing when I go there. A first timer who doesn't play much golf who came along also had a great day golfing.

Needs better management
Arrived at the course for noon t-time. Very few cars in the lot. No practice area except for small putting green. No cart attendant or starter. Course was spread out over miles of area. Cart paths meandered through woods and housing development. You can't walk this course. Some nice vistas. Some tricky holes with waste area to clear off the T. Biggest complaint was sprinklers operating on some holes with all T boxes getting
soaked. Had to T off from fairway. Couldn't avoid getting soaked by sprinklers on some holes. Grounds keeper wouldn't turn off so we could pass. Won't go back again.
