First Time Playing

Enjoyable round in all aspects

First time playing at this club and this course. We spent one night and ate a meal there. This is one of those easy reviews as everything was good from course maintenance (during a horrible rain filled year) to good food, friendly staff, and beautiful and decent course.

I like the layout and tree lines fairways. It’s not super hard so the average golfer can have a good time. It’s long enough for those with the length, but our 50 degree, windy wet day had me playing the 6,400 yard tees.

All the staff were on top of things and experoenced men and women who understood the customers. The room was clean albeit a little dated. Nice hot showers, and our burgers were better than red robin from the quality of the meat used.

I’ll stop there. You get it. Better than average time and course. Founder’s is good, and I hear iron is more open with more views. Easy recommendation.

Greens were beautiful, fairways were not.

Got a great deal to play at this course on golf now on a Saturday. Tee boxes and greens looked untouched no ball marks of divots. However fairways were a little hard and thin of grass.

Played behind walkers for 9 holes, but their pace was steady. Excellent value for the teetime rate. Course in very good condition.

Great time

My 14 yr old nephew and I had one of our most pleasurable golf experiences at Penn National. We played the Iron Forge course. The greens were pristine. The course was challenging but playable for a couple of high handicappers. The staff was outstanding. I left a wedge in the practice area and didn't realize it until the 2nd or 3rd hole. I mentioned to one of the staff who stopped to check on us. I said I would check on it when we made the turn. He drove back to the clubhouse and got it for me. Outstanding. Hope to get back there.
