Good, not great shape

Fairways were burnt. Geese had taken their toll on the greens on some holes.. Love the course just I've seen it in better shape.

Great golf in uncertain conditions

I have been playing Iron Valley since 2016 and have not reviewed it until now. I probably should have done this years ago but the golf course has not changed and is still magnificently kept. There are some stunning views from the 1st green and 2nd tee of the Lebanon Valley and you can always tell someone's first visit as they are taking video and pictures from this area. It is an easy course to walk as I played it during the beginning of the Covid Crisis and figured it would be best to walk. The front 9 and back 9 are totally different and well worth walking the steep hills on some of the back 9 holes. They did an excellent job maintaining the golf course during the time it was closed in PA and have made great changes to their pro shop and food services to make everyone feel comfortable in interactions. I only gave it a 4 star for the course conditions because some of the greens had a few dead spots on them that looked like they were caused by mowers, but everything else was in great condition.

Great View and Value

First time playing the course, it was a great track.
Temporary tee boxes were out which is understandable for early March.
Course was in great shape.
Very fun layout with many elevation changes, made for extremely interesting shot selections.
Looking forward to playing it again!

Love this course

Iron valley is a beautiful course with a nice layout. Two completely different set of 9 holes both with plenty of challenges. Hit straight and it can be very rewarding. Left or right may find you in the bag for more balls.

Absolutely terrible shape, stay away, save your money.

This was the second time I played this course, first time was early this summer and the course was great. This time the place was in terrible shape, greens had just been punched and whoever did it should be fired. I have never seen a punch job done so poorly anywhere. There are wheel ruts and gouges throughout the greens along with the expected tine holes with sand. All the tee boxes are closed, every sand trap is washed out with a muddy bottom and the fairways are rather beat up, oh and the driving range is closed.
STAY HOME or PLAY SOMEWHERE ELSE till spring.

A wonderful course. Challenges you to choose your shots, not just hit it as far as you can. Greens very consistent. Just wish there was a map of the holes. Some hole gsveblind shots and not sure where the green is!

Challenging course , most fun

I love this course , definitely on my top 20 in the Mid-Atlantic area.

The greens were in very good shape and the ball was rolling nice.
A wonderful test of a golfers ability all around.

The course was backed up big time today.. A lot of slow players on the course.

Beautiful but ruined by the assistant pro

It started raining on the 6th hole and continued on and off for several hole. The starter ask our group along with all the other groups to finish the 13th hole and wait 30 minutes. He also requested we check with the pro shop before resuming. Our group of 4 proceeded to the 14 tee box and was talking to one another. We figured we would wait at the tee box until it was time to check with the pro shop. Other groups in front of us were also waiting. No one had a club pulled and we weren’t near our clubs. The assistant pro pulled up and ask what part we didn’t understand we were to return to the club house. He also made several rude comments and spoke to us like we were naughty children. We tried to politely tell him what we thought the starter said and he continued to be rude and wouldn’t listen to what we had to say. I’ve played all over the US and have never been treated so poorly. What a shame, this is beautiful and well kept course! I won’t be returning to a course that doesn’t know how to be respectful to good customers. We value a well maintained course and respected the request to stop play. The assistant pro needs to take some customer service classes and not jump to conclusions without evidence or reasons to warrant such behavior. Our entire group works in customer service and we know some people can treat you poorly. However his actions were uncalled for and unwarranted. We are a group that is kind and we try hard to appreciate the people providing us a service. Too bad he didn’t appreciate our business.

Spectacular setting

Beautiful piece of property with an excellent layout. Always enjoy playing this course. Challenging, and be prepared to lose some golf balls if you don’t bring your A game.

enjoyable day at Iron Valley

the course was in good condition and we had perfect weather for our Sunday round. We had a great day on the course and enjoyed ourselves. Tees were up and it allowed for easier scoring conditions and shorter irons into greens. Always a great value with Golf Now on a hot deal at Iron Valley

challenging

Second time visiting to play course and seems I pick the hottest days. Pace of play for nine holes behind a couple foursomes on a course not really full was tedious. Front and back nines different but very playable even with a few quirks. Some holes played longer than listed yardage. Visually a great course with views. Must be wonderful in the fall. Greens were on slow side but understand with the extreme weather not cutting them down and speeding them up.

in great shape

Usually play Iron Valley once a year as its only a 75 min ride from Philly. The course is in great shape right now. The greens are medium speed and don't have many large breaks or undulations. They putt extremely true and you can make a lot of putts here. The white tees were up and it made all the par 5s reachable with a drive and iron. Iron Valley is a super value for the kind of golf that it gives you and if you've not ventured to play there, go treat yourself for a super day of golf.
