Type Public
Par 72
Length 6965 yards
Slope 144
Rating 74.5

Blue Ridge Trail Golf Club boasts 27 holes of championship golf that are played in three 18-hole combinations. The three different nines are natural named Blue, Ridge, and Trail. Tucked away in the hills of northeastern Pennsylvania, the golf courses provide stunning scenery and views. All of the holes were carefully carved from the surrounding woodlands and molded into the hillsides. An abundance of trees characterizes the course, giving all of the holes a secluded feel that is further enhanced by the design, which doesn't feature any parallel fairways. The Trail/Blue Course combines the shortest and longest nines but both are considered slightly more challenging than the Ridge nine. The Trail nine possesses two of the four water holes at the club. There is a combination for every skill level and four sets of tees make the nines even more accommodating.

the course is beautiful and serene in this part of the world

The layout is very difficult at times with some holes very long and difficult. It is nice and a good buy for the money.

Not worth playing this course anymore.

Used to be my favorite course in the area. Unfortunately management prioritizes profits over quality. No matter what time of day you play expect your round to take at least six hours. They schedule tee times in 6 minute increments so expect to be waiting behind three other groups on the first tee. The course condition has also suffered due to consistent course overcrowding. They have 27 holes at the course but for whatever reason instead of alleviating the crowd they would rather send every group off the same 9 rather than spreading golfers out. It's as if the manager gets some sort of joy from telling you "it's going to be a slow round". Also be aware that management will not stamp your free-round card because they claim that they do not make any profit off of reservations made on golf now. Just an all around bad experience every time I play this course.

Great layout on frigid day

I played Blue Ridge for the first time. This is a 27 hole course with great layout and elevations. There are wide fairways with some dog legs. Signage is great for golfers.
The time I played greens were being maintained so very sandy. I picked the coldest day of April to play as there are snow and rain on and off during our round. Otherwise this will be great to play when weather warms up.

Will be back!

After a number of mediocre experiences enroute home to Canada, this course was the highlight!
All facets were 4 plus and except for the aeration of the greens could have been higher.
Even the twosome that we played with were special folks and the bag drop attendant Gary was extremely welcoming.
Will definitely return when our travels allow.

Best Course in the Area!

Course was beautiful, especially for this time of the year. Greens rolled perfectly, bunkers were nice, the whole package! If you are looking for a course in the NEPA area, this is the one for you

Great course even in bad weather

This course never disappoints. Even though the weather turned bad on us, it was still an enjoyable round. The course is in great shape even though it has been a messy spring. The staff is topnotch and we really enjoyed having a drink while we waited for some rain to pass before we started.

Nice track

After a frost delay, staff was fantastic getting the golfers out to play. The layout was gorgeous and the pace of play was excellent. 18 holes in 3 hours 35 minutes, can't beat that. I want to play here again when everything is in full bloom.
