Nice Course

Course is nice for the money. Plays short. Check out the yardages before playing. Watch out for the water on 18. One of the few courses where the turn to back 9 isn’t at the clubhouse.

Time to put Iron back in my game

Iron Lakes suffered from flooding last year destroying several fairways and emptying many bunkers. They have worked hard to bring this track back. There are still places where the fairways are damaged and the worst bunkers have been redone. The rumor is that the club is going to do major work over the winter on the bunkers throughout the course. We teed off at 2:30 and played in 3.5 hours as a 4-some. The greens were slower than most courses in the area but looked healthy. Time to put Iron back in my game.

Challenges are plenty

Iron Lakes has elevation, dog legs, and ponds that make you think. Course staff was pleasant and kept the course in solid shape.

On the upswing

Management and staff have put in a lot of work to repair water damage from last season. Greens are very good and the low lying areas that were inundated are coming back. Will not be perfect overnight but definitely worth going back to if you have not been there for awhile

Good Course

Iron Lakes'fairways and greens were in very good condition. The tee boxes could some work but not too bad. There were a lot of wet areas but most of them really didn't come into play at all. Thor the golf pro there is a very nice man who wants to make your experience as pleasurable as possible.

Save your money

I don’t like trashing a course, but this was just plain bad. Nothing close to what the website gives the impression of. Starter should look at the big picture. Course was in bad shape all around. How it rates 4 stars is an absolute overstatement.

Cow pasture

Only played there because golfnow hot deal but it wasn't even worth the $12 honestly they should offer free golf and throw in a hot dog and beer for how poor the course looked. Best bet for them is close for a month and hire some help there isn't a good comment I can think of and I'm not a complainer. They even have the nerve to try and sell junk balls in pro shop for $1 each save your hard earned money for something better in my opinion hopefully this saves someone 4 hours of disgust

Needs some work

Course was pretty beat up. Many holes were large puddles or mud. We have had alot of rain lately but other courses are not this bad.

Starter paired us for a foursome but then put a few twosomes directly behind us which didn't make much sense.

Rough was very high. If a ball went in it you likely weren't finding it.

The girl at the grill was not the friendliest either.

Maybe will try the course again when we are in a drought.

Good morning out.

Have played here before on the weekends and it can be a little slow playing when crowded. This morning I walked 18 holes in under 3 hours. Course was in decent shape, we have had a lot of rain so some of the fairways were pretty tore up in spots. Greens were good though.

Great course

The course was in the best condition it could be due to the rain forest weather we have lived in. I know it will be even better during this season since we will not hopefully have that weather this year. Its a challenging course that people from Berks county and from a far should play I’ll be back multiple times this season thank you Iron lakes for your beautiful facility and awesome hospitality
