About

Holes 18
Type Resort
Par 72
Length 6656 yards
Slope 133
Rating 72.0

Skytop Golf Course sprawls across rolling hills set against a backdrop provided by the beautiful Poconos. The course originally opened in 1927. It has a classic design with traditional features including wide fairways, but the trees that line them have matured into quite the challenge. The 6,656-yard length may seem short by modern standards but don't get too comfortable. This mountain golf course features a variety of elevation changes and nowhere is this more apparent than the small greens where the breaks can vary from subtle to dramatic, but they are almost all unexpected. The greens also play lightning fast. Strategically placed bunkers are lurking throughout but thankfully water only comes into play on two holes. Skytop Golf Course offers plenty of scenic respite as well, with panoramic views of West Mountain.

Great fall day!

4 deer on 17 and 7 turkeys on 18, 3 of which sat on a fence. What a great day for golf and a beautiful course. Stay out of the rough.

Great golf course but some slow players were bothering me

Golf course was nice shape and beautiful view of around some holes. Some poor performers played so slow and they made me waiting few minutes every single hole. They never let us go through them. I guessed you should overcome this ridiculous moment each hole to play through. Except that moment it was so good time and enjoyable time for playing golf at this golf course.

Pretty and challenging

The rough is tall for a resort course but we were able to find our errant shots and play on. The greens were somewhat slow but smooth. Beautiful setting and a good golf experience.

Don’t waste your money!

Got this as a hotdeal for $55($70 regular rate, RIDICULOUS for this place) decided to check it out. I am a very harsh critic when it comes to golf courses, but this place made it easy.

I’ll start with the good, the greens. In good shape, but terribly slow and tiny. If you are not a fan of small greens, DO NOT PLAY HERE.

The tee boxes were in rough shape, mostly on the back, some on front. The rough is full of clover, and the fairways were shaggy. Traps had coarser sand in it and very little of it, felt like concrete.

Pace of play was brutal. We were waiting 10-15 mins to hit our tee shots.

Course layout was, minus a few holes, terrible.

I can say more, but why waste review space. Do yourself a favor, go play somewhere else, unless you have a comp round. Even then, I still would not recommend going to Skydump. Gift the round to someone you don’t like.

Great course with great views

Super friendly staff. unload your bag at drop off and clean clubs at 18. great layout with some long challenging holes. Pace of play was fair, wouldn't blame it on the facility, we got stuck behind a group that didn't seem to care anyone was behind them. Greens were firm and fast fairways were perfect, great place to golf
