Country Club of the Poconos
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.

Hidden gem in a mountainside community
Wonderful day spent with 2 members talking about the course. Fabulous views of surrounding area. The housing does not encroach on the playability.

Great Course, Great Group
Course was challenging. Staff was not overly friendly, did not feel like sticking around after finishing my round

Needing good mgmt
With better mgmt this could be a great place to play. As of now I'd be hard pressed to want to go back... Restaurant not open, no snack shop, no drink cart... Bring your own snacks and drinks
