The Inn At Pocono Manor - East Course
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.

Old- school course
Wide fairways, small greens. Not many bunkers or water hazards. Course in good condition. Two funky par 3s to blind downhill greens. Great pace of play. Laid back atmosphere, friendly staff. Beautiful fall foliage. Maintenance guys did a great job keeping leaves off fairways. Definitely play again.
Wonderful fall golf
We were very happy with our experience. Although difficulty on the greens diStorted our scores, the old style design, nice fairways and excellent greens provided a fun challenge. We both want to get back to play Pocono Manor again!
This course was quite challenging and greens were hard to read. We had a great time.
Great Donald Ross Course
Donald Ross did an excellent job on this course. Many of the greens have his signature style, where if you don't hit the correct shot to the correct part of the green, you won't be on the green. On blind tee shots, directional indicators and the hole by hole description sheet handed out by the starter help a player new to the course hit the right shots. Some funky but fun holes. Sorry that I didn't get a chance to play it again.
Tees and greens are adequate but the rest of the course is very rough around the edges. Course needs senior tees that are playable. Some holes way too short and others stilll a bit long. Play the front of the whites better than where most are located. Plenty of blind shots so a disadvantage if not played here before.
Great track with some odd blind shots you won’t find at your average course. Looking forward to playing it again with some course knowledge. Must play if you’re in the area imo. Highly recommend
This year because of liimited play this course conditions were much bettter than in the past. Greens are in tip top shape and on the fast side. Fairways were very good even thou do to hot weather a little dry in spots. Other than the odd Number 3 hole, its an excellent layout Very friendly staff. Worth the drive.
The course was fun. There are a few blind shots. You need to play it more than once to score well. Weather had a few holes a little burned on the greens a little. Not a bad track though. I will definitely play it again.
History not to be forgotten
