I have been playing this course for nearly 25 years and in the last few years it has changed for the good. Still a very short course considering today's technology. Greens are large which help beginers, but in general a nice course for learning the game and not spending a bunch of money. The major problem is overplay and extreme crowds. Forget weekend or evening golf at this course, unless you want to wait 60 mins to play. Remember this is a public back yard course so "golfers" beware. All in all, I like this course and for the money and a quick round with no travel, if you live in scranton, then this is the course for you.

OK, I don't know who is giving this course 4 star ratings (probably ownership) but let me tell you, it isn't a 4 star course. It started out as a 1 1/2 and now with the recent "improvents" (a few bunkers, a small pond and a new green) it is a 2 1/2 tops. Built on an old coal dump, do the math. If you don't mind combat golf, locals who are incapable of not yelling with every shot and mediocre at best conditions, it IS cheap. If you demand a little more and don't mind driving, try Stonehedge or Wilkes-Barre. If you do decide to play here, here's what you need to know; plan on a large backup on the 1st tee, mark your ball well because it will probably end up in some old guy named "Stanley"'s pocket and because many of the holes run next to each other, bring a helmet because you will probably either get hit with a ball or almost get hit. It seems the only time the locals can be quiet is when a ball is headed right at someone.

This course has come a long way in the last 4-5 years. I've played here about 4 times so far this year and each time has been a worthy experience. The fairways and tee boxes were in very good shape my only complaint is the greens are a bit shaggy and inconsistant. This is one of the best bang for the buck course in the immediate Scranton area. Unfortunately due to its' location it does get over played throughout the summer and the condition does deteriorate but in the spring and fall it's a great place to play.

Great value. Lots of improvements in progress. Fairways and greens in good shape. New tee boxes and bunkers coming. Will be fun next year...

Pine Hills golf course (18)

My regular Thursday foursome often travels to different courses within an hour or so drive of our home (Binghamton N.Y. area). We were fortunate enough to get out for a round on the 4th of January 07'(viva la global warming)and we chose Pine Hills as our destination. We had played here a couple of months prior, but were forced to play the back 9 twice due to time constraints on our part and heavy player volume (unemployment must be up). This time we were determined to see and play all of the course. We arrived at 10 a.m. and were dismayed to see 8 foursomes stacked up on the first tee. We let out a collective moan, because this was exactly what we had run into on our previous trip here. This time however, we decided to get our carts in line and have some breakfast until the tee cleared. The little restaurant they have inside is pretty nice and their breakfast fare is very good and reasonably priced. The staff was friendly and they helped the hour wait go by pretty quickly. Once the tee cleared, we headed out for our round. The course is reasonably well maintained, considering the heavy play it gets. The greens were actually in pretty good shape too for the time of year and for the foot traffic they must see. Overall, there isn't a whole lot of trouble to be had. Other than a few well placed bunkers,the fairways are pretty wide and generous. Real trouble comes from wild tee shots that could find you o.b. or behind some trees in another fairway. The course is pretty fun, with only a couple unimaginative holes that seem kind of crammed in. You could do far worse for the money. If you're in the area and don't mind waiting (in a line that harkens back to the old Soviet bread rationing era); then I'd recommend you give this course a try.

Too long a wait

With the course not accepting tee times, we waited over an hour to get to the first tee box, (oh, they do let their members get to the box before the "walk-ons") We questioned the person in the pro shop about this practice, but he seemed to busy to reply.
We did get on, and the course was nice. Alot of blind shots to the green, but adaquate markings. High rough can make it hard to find a ball with the blind shots. 4 players, 18 holes with cart, 5.35 hours...

Tough course which has only a few semi flat holes. Picture perfect greens, fairways, and rough. Dog legs are tough. Hit over valleys and off raised tees. Great Course with Great people that run it.
