Signature Golf Holes in the Poconos: Skytop Lodge & Paupack Hills

Take a swing at some of the best golf holes in the Pocono Mountains with PTN’s Jim Hamill.

This time, Jim tees up two holes with majestic views and challenging layouts. First, he joins Head Golf Professional Justin Alunni at Skytop Lodge. Hole #2 is a par 4 with scenic views of the historic lodge itself as well as the adjacent spectacular lake. The fairway is sloped downhill left-to-right and leaves a short iron into the green. The 18-hole course has been around for roughly a century. While PTN was there, a bald eagle cruised overhead!

Jim then swung by Paupack Hills with its own birds-eye view of Lake Wallenpaupack from the tee box on hole #6. It is also a par 4 downhill with a dogleg left to an elevated, undulating green. Iconic course architect Tom Fazio designed Paupack Hills and built it into the hillsides creating a tight, challenging 18 holes of golf near the Big Lake.
