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.

Fall Foliage Masterpiece

This was my first time playing this course but man it did not disappoint. It rained partially throughout the round but with the beautiful mountain landscape and leaves changing colors it was a great time. Probably lost 20 balls but also found a bunch in the woods. Will come back

So, So, SLOW

Pace of play was horrible. Took 5 hours 15 min to play. Not sure if they stuck in extra players. No rangers out to push.

Good Public course

Nice layout and good conditions for a muni. It was probably an aberration but we were 2 foursomes deep on every tee. 3:15 for the front 9 holes. Couldn’t stand the 20 minute waits on every tee so we cut the round short.
