Poconos Golfing and Golf Course Guide

Golf in the Poconos is gearing up, bookmark this site for the latest updates and official openings.

With well over 30 Golf Courses in the Northeast Poconos of Pennsylvania to choose from - about 90 minutes from New York City (and easily reached from other areas by the interstates) the Poconos offers a real treat for golfers.

Since the Pocono Mountains have higher elevations than that of New Jersey or New York, and are further north than many of the courses in Pennsylvania and Virginia, golfers find the summer climate and the scenery especially compelling reasons to make the Poconos a favorite destination.
