Mount Airy Casino and Resort

For decades, the Mount Airy Lodge was the place to go for a romantic getaway, but it fell into disrepair and closed its doors until 2009, when it reopened as the Mount Air Casino Resort and Golf Club.

Today it is a revitalized golf destination in the Pocono Mountains.

The Mount Airy Golf Course has 96 sand traps.

The Mount Airy Golf Club features an 18-hole golf experience with stunning vistas showcasing the beauty of the Pocono Mountains. It is situated across the lake from the resort and casino with a new clubhouse on the outskirts of the 1st hole.

The clubhouse features a pro shop, locker room, shower and after your game, an ideal place to relax. Visit the lounge or plan to eat in the dining room. For those who enjoy the outdoors, spacious patio seating is available for open-air dining with spectacular views of the lake and golf course.

The concept of the Mount Airy Golf Course was actually designed back in the early 1960s. At the time, Sports Illustrated put out a “Best 18 Holes in America” article, and Mount Airy’s course was designed based on that concept.

It took 10 years to build, and when the course opened in the 1980s it was the premier course in the Poconos. Today it remains a challenging golf course with each hole offering a unique layout to test your golfing skills.

It features 96 sand traps, along with plenty of water hazards including ponds and natural streams. While it isn’t a modern-style golf course, it does feature some of the design elements found in premiere golf courses in the United States today.

Extra Benefits

The Mount Airy Resort is ideal for golfers to stay and play. Just walk out the door and you’ll find yourself at the 1st hole. Plus, every person who plays the course gets $10-$40 back to play with in the casino.

If you plan a golf trip to the Mount Airy Resort, it pays to check their website for current specials.

  1. I had no idea that Mount Airy had been converted into a golf resort!

  2. Hello Lauren,
    The Mount Airy Lodge was actually torn down. The new Mount Airy Casino and Golf Resort was built in its place. The Resort is one of four 4-diamond properties in the Pocono Mountains. Check out PoconoMountains.com for more information on our golf resorts and other 4-diamond hotels!
