This is a hidden gem of the Poconos. The course was well maintained and the scenery was nice. Difficulty was good and enough tees to add as much length as you want. The greens were spectacular, some of the best I've seen on a public course. Nice tees for the ladies as well. Not much of a club house or parking lot, but the course and condition more than made up. A good value for the money. Don't miss this course if you are in the area.

Played this course today with my son. Course was in beautiful shape, definitely the best conditioned course that we have played in the Poconos. Played it last year and in one year the fairways have really matured. Played with my son from the black tees (6,741) and it was a nice test. Views are gorgeous all around the course. The greens had been aerated three days earlier and despite that they were very playable. (Management told me this when I booked my tee time and again today before I played)

This is definitely the best course that we have played in the Poconos. And if you are a senior (like me), the rates are very affordable.

This was a new course last year so it will benefit from some maturing. Especially considering the brutally hot summer the N.E. has last year as well as a tough winter. Club house is a trailer...hence strike 1 against amenities. But I don't go to golf courses for the sake of the clubhouse. The course is stellar. Fairways still a bit thin and greens were recently airated and top dressed. But still, I was impressed with the layout. At a 9 handicap and a good drive for me is 260-270, from the advanced black tees (not champ tees), you couldn't just automatically pull out the driver. A few dog-legs you needed to back-off to the 3 wood to prevent driving through the fairway. The price is great and definitely fair. $70 on a weekend mid season with a cart is not unreasonable and their noon and twilight rates help. Definitely worth playing now and this course should only get better with age!

Greens weren't mowed, lots dew made it difficult to putt. But as the course dried out it became obvious that it wasn't necessary. They were very quick without mowing that morning. Bunkers washed out by rain from previous week.

Front 9 is fairly level after the 1st tee shot until 9th 2nd shot. Back 9 has more elevation changes and is tighter. Big distance from 3 to 4 was not marked at all making it very confusing about where to go.

Our golf cart misfired 3 times.

The May review hits the mark on the club house.

Very simple distance markers on fairways and cart paths. $5 yardage book available. Not player friendly, but bottom line friendly. Plenty of sprinkler heads out there that could have been marked. Only thing Split Rock has on this course is the on cart GPS.

Practice area very good.

Overall, a far better golf course than the one across the road, but with some niggling problems which may or may not bother you.

Given the choice, JF over SR every time.

We played Jack Frost on 05/15/10 as part of our annual trip to Split Rock Resort (right next door). We'd played all 27 at Split Rock the previous day and decided to hit Jack Frost before heading home. The course is an eclectic mix of holes. Fairways are generally wide, but your angle of attack into the greens is important, so shot placement is the key to lower scores. The fairways, rough and tee boxes all seemed to be in decent shape for a 3 year old course. The greens were in excellent shape, despite being aerated just 2 weeks prior. We felt that the short game was also critical to scoring here. The greens can eat you up with undulation and changing conditions as the day progresses. Carts were gas powered and in good condition. The clubhouse is nothing to write home about, but the food and merchandise seemed fairly priced as compared to Split Rock. The greens fees for a weekend morning were a touch steep, but not crazy ($55 pp). Overall, we'd recommend the course.

Great place to play. I found the front nine an easier play than the back nine. Bring your "A" game especially when approaching the green. The greens are hard and fast and do run true. Overall, the place was in pretty closet to excellent condition and do not have any complaints. Bargains to play this course can be found on activegolf.com. Highly recommend this place as a must play.

Not sure what kind of grass nazgolfer was referring to, but I found the fairways and rough to be in great shape. The course has wide and forgiving landing areas. Just don't expect the same with you approach and putts. Because this is where the course is becomes challenging.

Played two days ago....Great course! Bring your A game-plenty of grass out there. Greens really are a lot of fun, hard, firm and fast. I was expecting far worse from the reviews. Conditions were excellent. Definitley will be playing anytime Im in the area. excellent value as well.

It just blows my mind how people who can't break 80 feel they have the experience or right to rate a golf venue. This course is worth what they ask. Most courses in the area are worth what they charge. If the greens fees at a course low, expect just that. If they are high, expect more. If it is a new course, don't expect a tightly knit fairways. Hello to the staff, and keep up the good work. Disregard any nimrod who talks smack about what will surely become one of the top spots in the Pocono's. You get what you pay for.

Very poor condition. It will be 5 years until this is ready. Ruts, holes and rocks in the fairways. We asked for a refund or discount and got the run around. Stay away!

As a 1 handicap player, I really do believe this golf course has a wonderful layout. I always try to envision a new golf course in perfect condition to truly evaluate the place. Quite frankly, if this golf course was in top manicure condition, it would be the talk of the northeast. Great golf course. The tees and greens are in good shape (not great), however, the fairways and bunkers need major investment. Rocks everywhere. The owners would be well served investing money in the fairways and a good PR campaign. The potential is there.

Maybe in some years to come?? This course needs a lot of work! Back 9 is borderline unplayable. It's going to be a tough road for them to get the sod to catch, very rocky soil, 30% of fairways under repair. There is a severe lack of course managment, make sure leave time for a six hour round. The day we palyed was full of first time golfers and the mindless waving ranger. The one good thing I can say is that the greens are exceptional, very, very true not a blemish on one of them!! Overall it was not a great experience. We will not even try to return for at least a decade!! Also, NO RANGE!!!!
