Featured Golf Course Review:
Wanango Country Club -- serenity in the allegheny foothills
Review by: michael savard this beautifully designed course (tillinhast and ross) offers a challenging but fair round of golf. nestled in the foothills of the allegheny mountains nature surrounds you on every hole (no development can be seen from the course - just a few oil derricks that are remnants of the region's famous past). the greens were smooth and fast for the springtime. the elevated tee on number 7 affords a view of northwestern pennsylvania beauty. the 570 yard par 5 18th is a challenge for most any golfer to reach in 2. #15 and #16 have tiered greens that can cause headaches. the 123 yard par 3 5th hole is short yet beautiful and the 160 yard par 3 10th with its elevated green is a unique way to start the back 9. all in all, the course was an extraordinary example of how nature and the game of golf can coexist in harmony.

Wilkes-Barre Golf Club -- Stay out of the woods!
Review by: Greg "WB Muni", as it's called, is a challenging golf course for the area it resides in (many sub-par golf courses with many golfers of all abilities). The staff are professional and the course shows this. Beware of the rangers, however. If you are struggling, which will happen if you leave the fairways, the rangers are there to let you know you're playing slowly. A couple of holes are consistently riddled with goose dung, so beware. The greens are challenging to read. Loads of sand, well manicured. Keep it straight and rely on your approach shots to be tight to score on this course. A couple of interesting horseshoe tee boxes for variety-sake. I enjoy this course (when I'm playing well :)). It's worth the trip. Nice practice range and putting green. There is also a sand play green! Well done, Muni!
