About Pocono Manor: Pocono Manor’s historic East Course boasts two of the game's most iconic classic golf course architects. In 1912 the original 9 hole Donald Ross designed golf course was opened to Poconos residents and guests of the historic Inn. In 1924, William Flynn was commissioned to complete this one of a kind golf course with an additional 10 holes (current routing 7-16). Pocono Manor’s rich history of public and professional golf included many visits by golf legends, Arnold Palmer, Sam Snead, and Tommy Bolt to name a few. Art Wall Jr. won the 1959 Masters Championship as Pocono Manor GC’s touring professional and represented Pocono Manor throughout his career.
