BUSHKILL, PA (June 7, 2016) — “Spring arrived early in the Pocono Mountains after a mild winter which made it possible for us to open the golf course on March 25th – the earliest in recent history,” said Gina Bertucci, spokesperson for The Villas and Fernwood Golf Course in the Pocono Mountains. This season, Fernwood’s 18 hole par 71 course offers golf from March to late November with that early opening. Bertucci continues, “Our resort course is known for its rolling hills, picturesque setting, and challenging, finely manicured greens. We are offering special spring and summer golf and stay packages that include golf for two for each night stayed in a villa starting from just $154 a night midweek.”
Fernwood’s rating for men is 68.8 and for women 63.3; the slope is 125 for men and 115 for women and its 71 par translates to 6174 yards for men and 4588 yards for women. Bertucci continues, “Our course has been recognized for its tough, sloping greens. That said, we think there is a reasonable balance of forgiving holes that make it a perfect choice for families that golf or would like to learn to golf together. What better way to dust off your game than taking an overnight trip to Fernwood for as little as $77 a person.” Fernwood offers the combination of a challenging course, reasonable pricing, villa accommodations that overlook the course, convenient tee times and easy access.
The Villas and Fernwood Resort are a 400-acre four season property located in the heart of the Pocono Mountains. In addition to golf, they offer Pocono TreeVentures, which is a 66-element aerial ropes course, Blue Lightning all season tubing, and Pocono Zip Racer, which features dual 1,000 ft racing zip lines, massage, horseback riding, indoor and outdoor pools, live entertainment at Wintergreens Patio Grill, a video game area, paintball, trips to nearby attractions including The Crossings Premium Outlets and Bushkill Falls, a fitness center, gaming at Mt. Airy Casino, hiking in the nearby Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area and Bushkill Falls, canoeing on the Delaware River, and miniature golf. Bertucci said, “Whether you want to play 18 holes then afterwards sit by the pool and relax, have a nice dinner at Wintergreens Patio Grill overlooking the lake, see a show, canoe through the National Park, take a trail ride or shop, we have made it easy and affordable.”
