Detailed description
Pocono Manor Golf Resort is a Resort, 36 hole golf facility located in Pocono Manor, Pennsylvania. The facility has two 18-hole courses, The West Course and The East Course.

Pocono Manor Golf Resort, The East Course opened for play in 1902. The East Course was designed by Donald Ross. The West Course opened for play in 1963. The West Course was designed by George Fazio

Golf at Pocono Manor has a long and distinguished history, hosting All-Star Golf, the LPGA, several PGA Senior Events, and numerous golf group outings. In fact, since opening in 1912, our East Course has been host to many of the legends of golf including Sam Snead, Arnold Palmer, Tommy Bolt, Gene Littler

The East Course incorporates a mountain setting with rolling hills and plush tree-lined fairways that make play challenging and memorable. The East Course is a par-72 challenge that measures 6,565 yards from the back tees.

The West Course is a favorite of the long ball hitter. The 7,000-plus yard distance from the championship tee (5,236 yards for the ladies) gives the course just the right amount of challenge for players of every level.

Pocono Manor Golf Resor is listed on the National Historic Register of Historic Places. This resort provides countless scenic vistas of the surrounding countryside. Both courses are situated on a heavily-wooded mountain top and are home to an abundance of wild life, such as deer and wild turkey. According to "GOLF Magazine," both courses are "traditional inland layouts" that feature a densely wooded terrain and extremely small and well-sloped greens surrounded by grass bunkers. The East Course, built in 1902, is the older and more demanding design. The West Course plays longer, but since it was built on flatter terrain, it is considered by locals as more forgiving. Shot accuracy is essential off the tees on both courses because the fairways are tree lined.
