Golf at Pocono Manor - Open for the 2020 Season
By Brian Weis
The Golf Course at Pocono Manor and Oliphant Golf Management are pleased to announce the official opening of the golf course for the 2020 season. Pocono Manor's Head Golf Professional, Greg Wall, commented "We are thrilled to finally get the course open. The fairways and greens are absolutely perfect. We are now open for business with great membership opportunities and daily golf pricing available. We know that our golfers will appreciate getting outdoors for some fresh air
Pocono Manor hired Oliphant Golf Management (OGM) several years ago to oversee golf course maintenance and the results have been fantastic. 2020 represents an expansion of that working partnership as Pocono Manor plans future developments for the property. Craig Haltom, President of Oliphant Golf Management, stated "The fire at the historic hotel last fall was a shock to everyone. Keeping golf open, as exciting plans are made for the future of the resort, was important to the owners. We are thankful for the opportunity and looking forward to running a fun and safe golf operation this season. "
Pocono Manor offers 18 holes of championship golf, conveniently located less than two hours from New York, New Jersey, and Philadelphia. Surrounded by the beauty of the Poconos, the East Course offers players unique challenges, water hazards and scenic mountain views. Touched by course designers Donald Ross and William Flynn, the East Course has tested a number of legendary players since opening in 1912, including Sam Snead, Arnold Palmer, and our own local Masters champion, Art Wall Jr.
