Ridge/Trail at Blue Ridge Trail Golf Club
There are 27 holes of championship golf available at Blue Ridge Trail Golf Club. They are divided into three nines, naturally named Blue, Ridge and Trail, that are played in different 18-hole combinations. The holes have an advantageous setting amidst mountains and trees, offering both privacy and scenery. The setting is made even more peacefully secluded by the fact that there are no parallel fairways throughout the entire golf course. The holes were carefully carved from the forests and hillsides, providing each nine with a different character. With four water holes, the Ridge/Trail combination has the most water of any of the courses. There are also strategically placed bunkers throughout but the towering, mature trees present the most formidable challenges. The course starts off rather gently with the player-friendly Ridge, but becomes progressively more difficult on the back nine.

27 hole facility worth playing
Blue Ridge Trail (BRT) is a 90 minute ride for me. It's worth the car time once or twice a year for me to play here. It's a pretty golf course with a good layout. Long hitters won't be challenged at BRT but the average hacker will find ample amounts. Greens were aerated 3 weeks before I played and they had healed
nicely. You can tell the owner takes pride in maintaining the course to a high standards. Enjoyable to play.
Gem in Central PA
I live on the west coast of NJ and believe it or not, there are an abundance of golf courses within a hour's drive. The Blue ridge Trail is about a 90 minute drive on 80. How does a course amass such a high rating in the wilds of PA? BRT is a SPECTACULAR golf facility. Grass practice facility and a modest clubhouse but over delivers on GOLF. I didn't get to play the 3rd nine, Trail, but judging by Ridge and Blue, it no doubt will exceed expectations. The ONLY nit I would Pick is the Pace of Play. REALLY slow. 18 took close to 5 hours. No good with Standard-time prevailing. Good thing I cleared my calendar and enjoyed a perfect Fall day.
Great layout decentconditions for November golf in NE Pennsylvania.
A little wet. Two holes were closed to cart traffic. Greens had not filled in completely from aeration. Some leaves to deal with in the rough. Still a great bargain and superb layout.
Course to myself
A drizzly fall day meant that I had the course to myself. Nice layout and great conditions for early November
Pace of play
Pace of play must be monitored closer. A threesome was holding up 3 foursomes.
I play here a dozen times a year and condition’s are always excellent. Pace of play was perfect with no one in front or back of us.
Great place to play
Conditions are always excellent. Pace of play was SUPURB!! Nobody in front of us, nobody in back. Usually it’s a 5 to 5 1/2 hour round. Of course the gps on the cart said we were 11 minutes behind but it was an excellent autumn day and we were enjoying it!
I’ll be back!
Too many players - 3 hour front 9
We have played this fine course several times. Conditions are always very good. This round the pace of play was horrid - 3 hours for 9 holes - often 3-4 groups on a hole. I told the starter it was awful and he said "I don't blame you, we have 384 rounds booked today". We left after nine.
Met a friend here and we're both from out of state so this place was about 1/2 way. Could not have enjoyed our round more. We played 18 in about 4 hours. Heavy rain
the two days before made it damp but totally playable. Nice variety of holes\layout and aside from a few bunker that were still wet it was a wonderful round and we will be back.
