Unwrap the Gift of Golf in Northeastern Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains

Four-county Golf Destination Offers Variety of Golf Memberships, Stay-and-Play Packages

(POCONO MOUNTAINS, Pennsylvania) – While golf balls, a new putter or this year’s latest gadget may be tempting to wrap up and place under the Christmas tree, give the golfer in your life what they really want – golf. The Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau suggests a variety of 2009 golf memberships and stay-and-play packages to any of the many courses in the four-county region. Memberships range in price to include everything from scheduled weekday play to unlimited golf at public courses or private clubs.

“While golf clubs may be put away for the winter, the playing is never far from the mind of those who love the game,” says Carl Wilgus, President and CEO of the Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau. “Whether it’s a season of golf or the promise of a weekend getaway, memberships and stay-and-play packages are sure to bring a smile to any golfer’s face on Christmas morning.”

The Pocono Mountains: Discover Golf’s Great Destination Secret, are home to hundreds of holes of golf from legendary designers such as A.W. Tillinghast, Donald Ross and Jack Nicklaus. With classic designs that feature tight fairways and small greens, to expansive resort courses and modern gems, the four-county region has something to satisfy every taste. The four-county region offers championship courses that will challenge the best golfer as well as options that are both economical and not so imposing for the less-skilled player.

Stay-and-play packages are as varied as the courses themselves. Whether it’s an early-spring overnight to enjoy the budding flowers or a ladies day at the course with a trip to the spa after 18 holes of championship golf, these packages meet and exceed the needs of each and every golfer on your Christmas list.

A complete list of Pocono Mountains golf courses and links to individual Web sites can be found at The venerable destination also provides the ideal backdrop for corporate outings and meetings. If it’s an overnight stay, a weekend getaway or an extended vacation, people are increasingly discovering the convenience and proximity of the Pocono Mountains properties and value-laden packages.
