The Inn at Pocono Manor offers two championship golf courses, conveniently located less than two hours from New York, New Jersey, and Philadelphia. Surrounded by the beauty of the Poconos, the inn has earned a spot on the National Registry of Historic Places. George Fazio designed the West Course, and the East Course was Donald Ross' creation. The East Course, the original layout, has hosted a number of legendary players, including Arnold Palmer and Sam Snead, since 1912. Ross carefully sculpted the mountainous landscape to create a course that is both challenging and memorable. It is shorter and tighter than the other course but they are equal in level of difficulty. The golf course is defined by the interesting water hazards that come into play on several holes, but the scenic views are also a draw.

Great Course Choice in the Pocconos

My wife and I played 18 and we were pleased with the experience. We're bogey golfers and the course offered plenty of challenges. It's an older course with very few bunkers or water, but the trees and mountains make it absolutely gorgeous. The fairways were excellent, but the greens were really hard and somewhat bumpy. There are very few sand bunkers on this course, but there are a lot of grass bunkers/hills that are strategically placed to create challenges. The pro-shop was very friendly as was the cafe staff. There is a driving range which is perfect for a quick warm up. We were paired with a couple of folks from New Jersey and we had a lot of great conversation. There were a few five somes on the course which is probably my biggest complaint, but the pace of play was adequate. We will definitely play this course again.

Terrific round

Tough greens highlight a well designed, challenging course. The 77 yard par 3 seventh is a wonderful challenge, if you’re in the area, it’s a must play.

Needs major work or it’ll fail

From the moment you pull into the lot it’s not good. A beat up parking lot with pot holes, a “sports club” that looks worse off than most kids summer camps well worn buildings. I tried to give it the college try but the more I played it the less I liked it.

The buildings need Bull dozed under. No charm as the website suggests. Folks were friendly enough. No issues. The layout isn’t bad but a fair amount of blind shots. There hasn’t been rain lately but I lost a ball in a fairway with standing water. Oddly placed moguls though.

The overall care of the grasses on all areas wasn’t too bad but no where close to a resort standard. It was passable although there weren’t many traps for a Ross design. The greens were over wet and held approach shots but for the wrong reason.

Unless they announce a major takeover or millions in improvements I’d avoid this course. There are
Many in the area that don’t cost much more and are public and tons better.

Friendly staff; just average course conditions

We were greeted and our clubs were loaded onto the cart for us. The course was in average condition. The cart paths were in serious need of repair. A few of the golf holes were quirky. Lots of hills. Play was very slow.

Wet weather

Really nice course. The staff was friendly and helpful. Laid back atmosphere. The only problem was it rained about 2 inches the night before and a tropical storm the week before , so the course was wet. Nothing that could be done about that. Beautiful scenery. We seen alot of deer. I will play here again.

Not bad

Course a bit soggy, but we recently had about 6 inch of rain. Greens could use more work. However, overall, course was playable,

Glimpse of yesterday!

A vintage golf course with lots of old charm. Greens are very fair and they rolled true. Fairways are a little thin here and there but these mountain courses in the Pocono’s seem to be that way. The greens also have character and they require attention when putting.
A really nice looking golf course as most holes are just in the woods with no houses or condos. If you find yourself in the area enjoy an historic round!
