BUSHKILL, PA (February 2014) – “Winter just would not quit this year but spring has finally arrived and now is the time to make your plans for that first spring golf getaway to Fernwood Resort and the Fernwood Golf Course,” said Gina Bertucci, spokesperson for Fernwood Resort in the Pocono Mountains. Fernwood’s 18 hole par 71 course offers golf from April to late November and plans to open for the season April 5. Bertucci continues, “Our resort course is known for its rolling hills, picturesque setting, and challenging, finely manicured greens. We are offering special two night villa spring golf and stay packages midweek that includes two rounds of golf each day starting from just $136 per night.”
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 $68 a person.” Fernwood offers the combination of a challenging course, reasonable pricing, villa accommodations that overlook the course, convenient tee times and easy access.
Fernwood is a 400 acre four season Resort located in the heart of the Pocono Mountains. In addition to golf, they recently added three new amenities including Pocono TreeVentures 66 element aerial ropes course, Blue Lightning Tubing all season tubing park, and Pocono Zip Racer, dual 1,000 ft racing zip lines. They also offer massage, horseback riding, indoor and outdoor pools, live entertainment, a video game area, daily scheduled activities, 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, paintball, 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."
