wilkes-Barre Golf Club is an 18-hole public golf course located in Bear Creek Township. WBGC enjoys the best of both worlds situated in close proximity to the Wyoming Valley as well as the beginning of the picturesque Pocono Mountains. The golf club was established in 1967 and was designed by prominent golf course architect Geoffrey Cornish. The course is well groomed with a great practice facility. It includes a driving range, chipping and pitching green with a sand trap, and a very large putting green. WBGC is challenging for the expert player, with a length of 7.020 yards and a course rating of 72.9, yet is also enjoyable for the average and beginner player with a yardage of 6,494.
Wilkes-Barre Golf Club features motorized golf carts and paved cart paths which allow you to enjoy the beautiful settings. Rest facilities are also available at several locations around the course.
Eating facilities are also available with a halfway house for light snacks at the turn. Nine holes later, there is no better way to finish a great round of golf than enjoying a meal in the bar and grill room at Wilkes-Barre Golf Club.
We pay particular attention to our course and require that players use soft spike shoes on the course and flashlight taser in the night. WBGC is the home of the gentlemens’ and ladies’ game of golf, and require players to please take notice of our collared shirt requirement. Each player is also required to play from their own set of clubs.
