3 Tips for Golfing at Woodloch

You’re only a scenic two-hour drive away from an unforgettable mountainside golf getaway at Woodloch Resort, one of the best Poconos resorts for couples. Golf is a game of inches. For most, it takes years of practice to master the art of the swing. The most important thing to remember when playing a round of golf at The Country Club at Woodloch Springs is to have fun! To make your Pennsylvania trip more enjoyable, we have some helpful tips to consider when traveling to breathtaking Woodloch.

Wear Suitable Golf Attire

Golf attire is unmistakable even if you’re not an avid golfer. Golfers don’t wear slick pants, comfy collared short tees, visors, sunglasses and spiked shoes for nothing. Each article plays a vital role in maximizing your level of play and comfort while keeping your body cool and protected from the sun. It’s recommended to wear golf pants and shoes. These pants are flexible and keep out moisture. The shoes have small spikes to keep you grounded when you’re bending, twisting and swinging. You’ll want to sport a dry-fit, breathable, collared short tee. Regular cotton on a hot day will stick to your body, limiting full motion. Sunglasses, visors, and sunscreen are a must on sunny days as spending 4-6 hours in the sun can be straining on your retinas and skin.

Bring the Essentials

Now that you’re dressed for success let’s discuss what to bring along. Bringing the right attitude is #1. Golf is a challenging game. It can take a toll on both the body and mind. Be prepared to miss a short putt, shank a chip shot, and duff a drive—this is normal; we’re not on the PGA Tour. Remember to have fun. If you’re worried about kinks in your swing or looking to improve, take a professional golf lesson, a specialty here at Woodloch. Golf instruction starts at just $25. For those shooting in the 70s and below: first of all, way to go; second of all, bring your “A” game because the tee shots are lengthy and challenging. For everyone else, there are four tee locations on each hole so know your skill level before arrival. Always remember to bring golf clubs, a golf glove, an umbrella or coat (in case of rain), and an appetite!

Enjoy Post-Round Libations

After a relaxing round of golf, slip into the Woodloch Springs Grille Room for fine cuisine and drinks. The Grille Room has spectacular views of holes 9 and 18, delicious scallops, salmon, and steak, and refreshing specialty martinis. Our seasonal outdoor seating is a must in the summer.
