Split Rock Golf Club
Split Rock Golf Course is located in the Pocono Mountains of PA and is one of the best-kept secrets in PA. Located is easy accessible Lake Harmony and the Pocono Mountains, Split Rock offers 27-holes to resort guests and the public. It's majestic 585-yard 11th hole claims one of the most spectacular views in the entire Northeast, let alone one found on a golf course. Play takes about 4 1/2 hours to complete 18 holes.
The starting tees on this 6,500-yard course are impressively landscaped. Offering championship black to ladies red, each starting tees offers its own unique view of the fairway, having been positioned at different angles and elevations. The trees surrounding the course are abundant and as most trees indigenous to the region, positively burst with color in the fall. On some holes the trees create tight fairways, but the grounds crew at Split Rock do an excellent job managing the undergrowth so a duffer can find their ball without considerable difficulty.
