The Mount Airy Golf Club opened in 1980 and was renovated in 2009 to include a new irrigation system and new cart paths. From various parts of the golf course, guests experience one-of-a-kind views of the Pocono Mountain scenery, unique to any golf course in the tri-state area. Golfing here provides a legendary experience you’ll remember forever. That’s because it is designed after Sports Illustrated’s “Best 18 holes in Golf,” designed by golf architect Hal Purdy, each hole is replicated from some of golf’s most legendary holes at Championship courses across America.
Top of the list is Pebble Beach Golf Links, Oakland Hills Country Club, Merion Golf Club, and Augusta National to name a few. The design takes up over 6,500 yards of spectacular fairways, marvelous views and superb golf course conditions! The result provides for a private country club experience. Rated at 72.4/132, the golf course will certainly test your skill, no matter what level of golfer you are.
A sizable number of water holes, flanked with ponds, streams, hazards and elevation changes make for a great test of your game. There is a fully-stocked pro shop, too. Following your round, a private clubhouse experience awaits you for refreshing drinks at a full-service bar and grill, or enjoy your meal in the restaurant or lounge or on the resort’s beautiful outdoor deck overlooking the amazing landscape that the Pocono Mountains have to offer.
Expert on-staff professionals offer tips and instructions to help guest’s golf game improve. With more than 30 years experience, PGA Pro Chris Zelenka has the knowledge to help anyone drive straighter, hit harder, and sink putts more. From 2006-2010 Zelenka has been recognized by the PGA President’s Council on Growing the Game.
PGA PRO CHRIS ZELENKA
Zelenka got started in the golf industry in 1980 at a little course in Belvedere, Pennsylvania, as a cashier, doing a multiplicity of jobs while there. Today, in his role as a PGA Golf Professional/Course Manager at Mount Airy Golf Club very seriously, managing over 200 rounds per day, he’s busy with keeping both management and customers happy.
He admits that he has been urging property owners to include a driving range at the course, as well as an island green, knowing that both would bring additional value for golfers.
“I enjoy having new customers come and discover our course, and then watching as they return with their friends to introduce them to the experience here at Mount Airy,” he says.
After-hours, his favorite way to relax from work is through songwriting and performing with his rock band. His musical talents go long, and deep, with a history of touring internationally while opening for some big-name talent, too.
1,800 slots and 80 table games for those who are 21 and over. A Players Club membership offers comped dinners, free slot play, exclusive offers and events with endless winning opportunities. The resort is committed to responsible gaming.
