Pocono Manor Course Layout
Since opening in 1912, Pocono Manor’s East course has been host to many of the legends of golf. Sam Snead, Arnold Palmer, Tommy Bolt, Gene Littler, Doug Ford, Jackie Burke and Jerry Barber are just some of the famous players who have tested their skills here at the Manor. Art Wall Jr., while representing Pocono Manor as our touring professional, won the Masters and was named the PGA player of the year in 1959. Pocono Manor has hosted players from the Senior Tour, the LPGA, and was one of the featured homes of television’s “All Star Golf” with Jimmy Demaret in the 1960’s.

This resort features two regulation eighteen hole courses. 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. This course has been the site of both Senior and LPGA Tour events. 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.
