As the dog days of summer fade into the rearview, we enter into one of the most pristine and inviting seasons for golfing in the picturesque Pocono Mountains. Autumn is just around the corner, where the reds, oranges, and golds will set the hills ablaze with their color show. And the Poconos are a famous fall destination. If you love to golf as well as take in some pristine nature, then an autumn golf trip to the Poconos is the perfect getaway.
The Poconos boasts a wide range of courses to play, from those who are new to the sport to those who are seeking the most challenging and advanced holes. Let’s dive into some of the courses in the area, as well as some great events and offers they have for your fall trip.
One of the most breathtaking courses in the region, Split Rock Golf Club, is a short drive from many of the vacation rentals that Pocono Mountain Rentals offers. In October, you can save big with their $30 Tuesdays all month long, and that includes a cart. They’ll also be having Octoberfest on all weekends in October, featuring chef Mark Kraft. The annual Murphy’s Loft Tournament will be held on October 10, starting at 9am. And the Fall 9 & Dine special will be on October 13, where you can golf at 3pm and dine at 6pm.
Jack Frost National is another of the region’s gems. This mountain course is over 7,200 yards, and offers some amazing views of the fall colors on display in the Poconos. The clubhouse features a fully-stocked pro shop, as well as dining options for you after a day on the links.
Located in White Haven, you’ll enjoy a day spent at Stone Meadows Golf Club. This modified links-style course offers 18 holes of picturesque beauty. Wooded and scenic, this place really struts its stuff in the midst of the changing leaves and colorful landscape. And check out their Sunday Special, where you can book a foursome but only pay for 3!
As the newest member of the Poconos golf roster, check out the Country Club of the Poconos. Designed by Jim Fazio, the CCP offers great golfing at municipal course prices (membership not required). Set against the Allegheny Plateau and foothills of the Poconos, Country Club of the Poconos’ scenery and impeccable conditioning provide a memorable fall golf experience. And you can save big on mid-week outings all season, with $25 Tuesdays!
Whether you sneak away by yourself and let the family have their fun while you hit the links, or whether you gather the buddies for a quick weekend golf outing, the Poconos are the perfect destination. And from lakefront homes to cabins tucked deep into the forest, we’ve got the perfect accommodations for your crew that are in great locations near the links. You can check out all of our properties at Pocono Mountain Rentals, where you can browse and pick your favorite!Greg Petrillo
