Detailed description of Fernwood Resort & Country Club

Fernwood Resort & Country Club, is a Resort, 18 hole golf course located in Bushkill, Pennsylvania.

Fernwood Hotel & Resort golf course first opened for play in 1968. The somewhat short course was designed by Nicholas Psiahas.

Fernwood Hotel & Resort golf course is one of the leading Pocono golf courses with its 18 hole par 71 course. The golf season runs from April 1st until the end of October.

The first four holes (2 par-2s and 2 par-3s) are very straightforward, the real action starts at number 5. Fernwood's fifth is where the course's character began to reveal itself, as the mountain layout takes you up slopes where tilting fairways, sidehill lies and treacherous greens prevail.

To give you an idea of the difficulty of the greens: one reviewer on a blog wrote " on the long 200-yard par-three 16th hole, I hit a 7-wood to the front edge of the green. I had about 35-uphill feet to the pin. My first putt nearly made it to the hole but, upon coming up two feet short, reversed course back to my feet. I hit my second attempt much firmer, so much so that it rolled a good six feet past the cup with about four feet of unintended pull (missing left). If not for a very clutch draining of the remaining 10 footer, I would have double bogeyed. The greens are tough, enough said!

Championship tee: par 71, 6,164 yards, course ranking, 68.8, slope ranking 125.

Middletee: par 71, 5,777 yards, course ranking, 67.6, slope ranking 123.

Forwardtee: par 71, 4,308 yards, course ranking, 63.3, slope ranking 116.

The condition of the tees, greens, and fairways were excellent. The layouts on some of the holes were quite funky/quirky. BUT OVERALL, THE GOLF WAS A PLEASANT EXPERIENCE, except for the weather.. We had a heat index over 100, not the fault of the course.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
