Friday, April 13, 2018

BUSHKILL, PA (Spring 2018) – Fernwood Golf Course has a new name! Now known as Pocono Hills Golf Course, the 18 hole par 71 course is now open daily. Loretta Porvaznik, spokesperson for Pocono Hills Golf Course, comments, "Considering what a brutal winter we had, the course is in great shape. Our course Superintendent Jeff Lipics has been working diligently to get ready for opening day. Considering we had freezing temperatures right up to a couple of days before opening, his hard work has reaped great benefits for all the golfers who have gotten out to hit the links."

Porvaznik continues, "Back by popular demand, we are once again offering a ten play golf coupon book for just $350 for golfers. The coupons include 18 holes of golf with cart, are non-transferable and good any time throughout the season both weekends and weekdays. The book offers maximum flexibility at a great savings and to make the offer even better, we are selling these 10 play books for just $299 until May 1st."
