Type Semi-Private
Par 72
Length 7095 yards
Slope 140
Rating 74.8

Nestled in the rolling hills of northeastern Pennsylvania, Blue Ridge Trail Golf Club offers 27 holes of championship golf that were carefully carved from woodlands and valleys. There are no parallel fairways throughout the entire course, giving each hole a secluded setting. The golf course offers plenty of variety, which has made it a popular venue for outings and tournaments. The holes are divided into nines that are played in three different 18-hole combinations. The Blue/Ridge Course is both scenic and challenging. The courses are almost equal in length but the Blue nine is considered slightly more difficult, although the Ridge nine possesses two of the few water holes at the club. Mature trees frame most of the holes and there are also strategically placed bunkers along the greensides.

Course layout is great

Nice open tree lined fairways. Sand was fluffy and well maintained. Greens did not appear to be in good shape, but that was deceiving as the ball would bite on the green. Roll was fast and true. All in all this course was a very pleasant surprise. Certainly worth playing. Very reasonable rates for the care management puts into the course.

Always pleases, greens and traps good

I’ve played here about five times the past year which is a lot since it’s far from my home. But I enjoy it every time. I play in all seasons and the courses are kept in top shape. I like the variety. Greens putt consistently. Sand traps are full of nicely kept sand.

They run it pretty well. Looking forward to using the dining area soon post Covid. Driving range is good. Lots of tees for all skills.

Recommendations I’d make are to change the loud speakers that announce names that are up to tee soon. I’d put one over AT the range so the one by the building doesn’t have to be so loud and interrupt teeing off. It’s the one aspect that doesn’t match the usual professionally run course.

I’ve walked the course and the holes are widely spaced at times. So it’s a long walk.

I greatly dislike video commercials to play on the cart screen while I golf. I want to leave that garbage behind when I get away to play. I’ll pay a extra dollar or so. Some other courses started doing that and I hope the trend does quickly. It may make me avoid courses that do it. I feel that strongly about it. Give us a break from the media

But again I like the course and operations here.

Good value, Interesting holes

Played for the first time per recommendation and really enjoyed it. Conditions in the morning started to rough with the rain and multiple layers we were all forced to wear due to the cold as well, but the course was fun. Course requires you to hit certain spots to avoid hazards and the greens were very fast for how wet they were. I’m excited to try this course again this summer when it’s warmer and the conditions are better.

Beautiful layout, great value for the money

There was some uncertainty about which pair of 9 hole courses I was set to play on, but it worked out fine with the way they manage the pace by GPS. Greens are fast, with lots of forced carry over brushland/wasteland, so bring ammo. Blue course had great views, some tall tee shots. Bunkering isn't very snug to the greens here, so most of the challenge is getting it on the correct area with the approach shots. Well maintained.

One of the best in the area

Blue Ridge never disappoints. Course is always in top shape. Only downside is I never seem to get to play Blue, it's usually always Ridge to Trail or Trail to Ridge. Blue is my favorite 9 of their 27 beautiful holes. I play here multiple times a season and that won't change anytime soon.

Spectacular

I love playing this course. I play it a few times every year, and never had a bad round. The carts have on board maps with distances to the hole, which help out immensely. Also, being able to order foor through the displays is great, and they have some excellent food.
