Country Club of the Poconos
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.

Mountain type course
Enjoyed the course very much. There are a number of exceptional holes with spectacular views. There are a few non-exceptional holes, 18 was disappointing, seeming like it had a long season. Conditions were overall good. Greens were furry and needed a shave. Not a course to walk. Lots of long drives between some holes. One ride might have been a half mile. A number of challenging holes and layouts. If your one who believes golf is suppose to be fair, go somewhere else. Had fun, will be back.

Too much driving between holes, no continuity, holes seem to be scattered all over the place

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.
