The Country Club at Woodloch Springs Selected as Distinguished Golf Destination

The Country Club at Woodloch Springs, a nationally-recognized golf course in Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains, has been awarded the prestigious Distinguished Golf Destination award, as determined by the Annual Distinguished Golf Destinations award program conducted by BoardRoom magazine in partnership with Forbes Travel Guide.

For fine resorts, semi-private, daily fee, and public golf courses that operate at the highest standards, BoardRoom magazine’s entirely merit-based Distinguished Golf Destinations award program uses a facility-specific rating system that recognizes the facility, its management, and its staff based on a proprietary criteria and validation process that distills and measures a facility’s Exceptional Golf Experience.

As defined by Distinguished Golf Destinations, “Exceptional Golf Experience” is that special combination of “qualities” that a destination provides its golfers. It is not just the quality of service, of the facilities, nor of the product provided; it is also the quality of the staff and of the management. The most important quality, however, is that of the intangible. While difficult to measure, the latter is comprised of those magic moments experienced — the guests befriended, the memorable events attended, as well as the facilities’ traditions, history, and heritage proudly recognized at Woodloch Springs.

“On behalf of BoardRoom magazine in partnership with Forbes Travel Guide, we’d like to congratulate The Country Club at Woodloch Springs for earning Distinguished Golf Destination status for their efforts in providing an exceptional golf experience,” said John Fornaro, Publisher of BoardRoom magazine. “This is a great honor for the whole team at Woodloch Springs and the entire Woodloch family,” said John Pillar, PGA, Director of Golf at Woodloch. “We’ve always been proud of our club, and this recognition helps reinforce that.”

Woodloch Springs is one of three properties that encompasses Woodloch Resort, which also features an award-winning family resort (Woodloch Pines) and a luxury destination spa (The Lodge at Woodloch). Spanning 438 acres, the course features unparalleled views of scenic mountain landscape and manicured green. There is also a state-of-the-art driving range and 16-acre teaching and practice facility. The semi-private course is open to members and guests of Woodloch, and limited outside tee-times are available.
