Course Reviews


Played Blue with Trail. Nice course. Worth the trip if you are in the Poconos. Greens were firm and quick. Rough was patchy in places yielding bad lies.

Decent discount for children under 17.

I only had time to play the Blue Course at the 27 hole Blue Ridge Trail course. It cost
over $40 for me and my 12 year old son as a twighlight fee. Though somewhat scenic,
there was nothing that made this course different than a number of other courses in the
area...lots of vegetated waste areas. For the cost...I’d rather go to Mountain Valley
anyday. Conditions were pristine...too pristine for my liking since signs for “no carts”
began 150 yards in front of the green. My 12 year old did a considerable amount of extra
walking simply because he kept hitting to the other side of the fairway and not long
enough. I felt it was obnoxious to keep the carts so far away from the greens. If price is
no factor, it’s worth a play...but I have no ambition to return for the last 18.

We played the Ridge and Trail course this past weekend as part of a Golf Trip. The last two years we have played the Blue and Ridge 18 holes. So this time we finished the trio.

We arrived about two hours early and the gentleman working the counter on a busy morning managed to get out our two groups well before our scheduled tee time. While checking in and while loading our carts it was obvious from the radio communication between the desk and the starters that they were very cognizant about sending out fiolks at the proper times and making sure that the maximum amount of golfers got out with the least amount of waiting times. During our round the only real slowdown we had was when we switched from the Ridge to Trail course. As we got to the box a group from the Blue followed us on. We let them play through and had a slight hold up for only two holes and then things smoothed out.

During our round several rangers came by and inquired as to how we like the course and if we had any problems. At one point a ranger approached to advise that we possibly could meet some slow play a hole or two away but thety were working on it. We never did experience the back up.

Like I said earlier we started on the Ridge which was a welcome relief from starting off on #1 on the Blue. For whatever the reason #1 Blue can be a nightmare for me.
The course played fair with more difficulty then we normally see.

We stumbled over this course by accident several years ago during a rainy day when we were looking for a place to play when Stone Hedge closed because of the weather. We actually played when many other courses were closed. The ground held the water well and it was not a problem.

It is out of the way for us folks from New Jersey but we play it on our way home on the last day of our trip. They have a nice clubhouse with a stocked pro shop and a nice restaurant area with adjacent outdoor seating.

The course is outstanding, the amenities first rate, there is a driving range and the carts are GPS equipped. In our area a round of golf starts at $65-$70 for a similar course Blue Ridge Trails $45 rate is a great bargain.

The blue course is my favorite. Recommend Blue to Trail, but there are no bad plays here. The entire 27 is gorgeous.

Blue is the best 9 of Blue Ridge Trail's outstanding 27 hole layout. Scenery, conditions, and layout are all superb at the BRT. This place is a hidden gem a bit out of the way for us New Jersey die-hards, but we have made the trip out to Mountaintop twice in 2 months to play here. It is the best value you can find - GPS on carts, great design, top notch service, and A1 conditions. I recommend Trail to Blue if you can pick your 18. Otherwise, play all 27!
