Enjoying Woodloch Springs Golf

Posted

Golfers are always looking for a new experience, and when that experience is not too far away, that choice is much easier.

For many years, Sullivan County golfers have enjoyed the hospitality, and especially great golf, at one of the finest courses in the United States. Which is less than an hour's ride from Sullivan County's border.

The Country Club at Woodloch Springs, near Hawley, PA is nationally recognized by Golf Magazine as one of the finest courses in America and rated 4.5 Stars by Golf Digest's Best Places to Play.

And for Sullivan County golfers wanting to play Woodloch's spectacular 18-hole championship golf course, it's a short ride out of Narrowsburg, across the bridge into PA, keeping a sharp eye out for a sign on the left side of the road that will take you to Woodloch Pines and the Country Club at Woodloch Springs.

A golfer's paradise awaits you with 18 holes of championship par-72 golf. This course winds its challenging way over 6,579 yards of fern-carpeted forest, lush wetlands and broad carpeted meadows.

Offering four sets of tees and alternating pin placements, a variety of challenges await golfers of all skill levels.

Golf Magazine says Woodloch Springs is, "One of the finest courses in America, while Golf Digest says it is, "One of their Best Places to Play with a 4.5 Star rating for the past 26 years."

Experience their outstanding signature 14th hole, requiring a dramatic 220-yard carry over "Hells Gate Gorge," which is carved from the rugged mountainside by rushing water some 200 feet below.

Utilize their 16-acre practice facility to improve your game or the art indoor performance simulator for lessons or certified club fittings.

John Pillar, Director of Golf at Woodloch Springs and Past President of the Philadelphia Section PGA, is recognized as a top KidsMaster Teacher by US Kids Golf. He leads the Instructional program, which helps to ensure all players can improve their game, get introduced to the game, and that our future golfers have the opportunity to enjoy the integrity, honesty and camaraderie in the sport.

The golf course at Woodloch Springs is a family friendly course, dedicated to growing the game of golf.

The Country Club at Woodloch Springs offers a variety of Club Memberships for the golfing enthusiast or the recreational golfer.

The Woodloch Springs 18-hole golf course has four tee boxes per tee, Gold, Black, Green and White. Recommended tees for play include golf tees 0-5 handicap, black tees 6-14 handicap, green tees 15-24 handicap and white tees 25+ handicap.

LIV Continues to Make News

When it comes to the LIV Golf Invitational Series, Talor Gooch can't stop putting his foot in his mouth. Adam Woodard, writing for USA Today said, "After shooting a 2-under 70 in the final round of this week's event near Portland at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club, Gooch was asked if he felt the energy of the fans, who were stuck in traffic for hours trying to get to the parking lot from the highway, and the 30-year-old gave an answer that sent golf Twitter into a frenzy, ‘I haven't played a Ryder Cup or a Presidents Cup, but can't imagine there’s a whole hell of a lot of a difference,’ said Gooch. ‘This was as cool as it gets. We've been talking about it all week. The energy is different. It's awesome.’”

After the tour announced its "significant changes to the schedule last week, Gooch, who currently ranks 38th in the world and hasn't been higher than 31st, took some of the credit on Twitter.

What will he say next? Tune in later this month when LIV hosts its third event at Trump National Golf Club, Bedminster.

Golf Tip by Robert Menges

We all have different ways of doing things on the golf course, which is why one strategy might work for one person but not another.

For example, some of us will visualize the shot we want to hit in our mind, because it helps to execute the shot. For others, they have to experience the shot.

It never hurts to try something new.

You can create to help build your confidence.

After each round of golf, take 60 seconds to sit quietly and replay the three best shots of the round. Visualize them in slow motion and lock every detail into your memory. They'll come back to cheer you on in the future.

Tell someone about your best shot but never talk about the poor shots. Professionals can usually remember every shot during a tournament, but there is one shot they "just don't recall” because it's their worst shot. Let the bad shots go and never ever talk about them.

Breathe before a shot or putt, remember to breathe deeply and softly. It will relax your body and allow you to focus on the task at hand.

Make it a part of your pre-shot routine to consciously expect a great shot.
