Sunset Green is Closed for the Season
Split Rock Golf Course and Sunset Green Restaurant 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.
Split Rock Resort is a thinking man's course and has to be played with a combination of strategy and power. The driver will see use on the longer holes three holes are over 550-yards and other holes where only a thunderous drive can clear water to reach the fairway. Ravines, ponds, and bunker-lined fairways, along with the occasional deer or turkey, require the golfer to carefully measure their club choice.
Making Split Rock Golf Club even more inviting is it's greens fees, which also includes the golf cart. In the off-season, before May 14th and after October 2nd, one can ride a cart and play 18 holes for $40 midweek and $55 on the weekend. In season, rates are $55 midweek and $67 on the weekends, but there are great midweek specials and twilight rates available all throughout the season.
The Split Rock Golf Club is widely known outside the Pocono community, at 90 minutes from New York City, it should be included in any tour of courses to play in the Pocono Mountains.
