Rated 5 out of 5 by Scott150VPD Always a great play
BRT is one of those courses you just keep coming back to. We live an hour north and usually make it down a couple times in the early spring and late fall, when the temps are a few degrees warmer than up home. This is 27 hole facility. (Blue 9, Ridge 9 and Trail 9 - get it?). This is target mountain golf at its finest, where straight wins the day. Don't expect to put up career low numbers here. Par is like birdie on many holes. The electric, GPS equipped carts are very nice, though I do wish they'd go with an overhead system, as the current one blocks the cupholders. The course layout is competent and challenging and the conditions are always top notch. The sand is course and grainy, but lacks the shale that plagues many courses in NE PA. The clubhouse is solid and the food and drink prices are reasonable. Staff is generally cordial to nice. People come from NJ to play this course, so you know its worth the trip.

Rated 4 out of 5 by soupy45 Fast and tricky Greens!
A great course to play! On our way home from Ocean City and after playing relatively flat courses this course was a pleasant change. We were warned about the fast greens by the very welcoming starter and pro shop staff but we still had to get used to the speed and slope (often optical illusions that seemed to show slope uphill!). the greens were large and undulating but in great shape considering it was November. Lots of great vistas from tee boxes. We played Blue and Ridge nines from the whites which was quite challenging but fair for 70 year olds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by u000008049429 Best public course around!
I think that this is the nicest public course in the Wilkes-Barre / Scranton area. The condition of this course is top notch. The fairways are always nice and the greens are pure. Most of the holes have nice wide fairways. Lots of hazards to challenge more experienced players. 27 holes means you're not going to get bored of the same 18. And compared to Philly and the suburbs what they charge here is a steal.

An amazing course! It is so well-maintained, and I whenever I come there's never a Wait. Can't believe more people don't play here. A jewel

Rated 5 out of 5 by RonKane Excellent value. Great personnel.
This course is a three distinct 9 hole layout. Very scenic, well maintained. Some real challenging bunkers at most holes. This place is a gem. Rate for a 10:16 tee time was only about $40.00 with cart. Can not be beat. The extraordinary part of this day was actually the personnel. Everyone was professional, very friendly and helpful. I could not be more impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Paulmack8221 Awesome course
Blue Ridge is hands down one of the best public courses in PA.. The gps, course condition, staff, and range is awesome! The only downfall is its always packed.. 18 holes can take up to 4-5 hours to play even though they have 27 holes ... Besides that, I strongly recommend playing this course!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ken6614917 Wow! What a hidden gem!
I am NOT from the area, but I am so glad I found this course. There are many blind tee shots, that makes the GPS on the carts very valuable! There are 6 tee sets, and I would definitely recommend playing to your ability. The starter was incredibly nice and put me in with a twosome instead of making me wait behind a couple of groups. The course is in great shape and the Green roll true and fast! I cannot wait to be up here again!
