Featured Golf Course Review:
Whitetail Resort -- LONG BUT SHORT
Review by: hacker1 This course is nestled at the foot of a mountain witha few holes on the back nine going up the mountain. The course is a very long course however , unless playing from the pro tees requires a club on most of your par4's and 5's other than your driver.The par 3's are challenging with severe elevation change on #12. This bent grass course is great for the players who love to play golf course managment. If you get the oppurtunity to play this course take it.For $35 during weekdays its hard to beat for the area.

Shade Mountain Golf Club -- Great course for the price
Review by: Dan the Man I have been a native of central PA for numerous years until recently moving. I have played Shade Mountain numerous times and you will not find a better golf course for the price than Shade Mountain GC. The front nine is wide open, giving a false sense that you can just grip it and rip it. However trees are full grown and errant tee shots generally question you to lay up or make a big gamble. The back nine is a challenge for most golfers but a true test for the single digit handicapper. Beautiful tree lined holes allow many options off the tee. #11 is a great par 5 ~508 in distance tree lined the whole way but a big hitter can get home with 6 or 7 iron, but hitting the fairway is difficult. 13 is a great risk reward hole, only 314 in distance but a dogleg left requires a good draw to turn the corner to get there. The green is smaller and tucked ever so close to the left trees. A bail out right and you'll find trees. 4 iron is all you need to have wedge in but hitting this green in one is just too tempting. I've seen 3 wood land on this green before so big boys may not need driver. The closing hole is a 440 yeard dogleg right par 4 that is without a doubt the BEST finishing hole in all of central PA. Requires some guts to hit a cut shot into the fairway that slopes to the left. You better not hit a big draw or you'll be chipping out of teh left woods. Green is elevated and guarded by a steep sloped bunker on the right. PAR is an unbelievable score here. I've seen pros shoot 76 and I've seen a couple 65's so it's a course that you can score on if you keep the ball in play.
