The course was nice. Greens are challenging with many undulations but not very fast. Pace of play was good - we could see the group on front of us and behind us but no one was pushing the other. Did not stay for dinner so not sure how the restaurant was.

Lederach is one our favorite courses, we drive an hour just to play here, yesterday we had a great round but sadly enough mother nature messed it up in the last few holes and we couldn't finish the round. But this is one of most amazing places, the staff is awesome, the bar is awesome, the food is great. If anyone wants to have fun playing a great round - this is it!!

Played after a week of rain and course was cart path only. Greens didn't seem like they were cut and were very slow. The course was well maintained from tee to green. Go to Golfnow or TeeOff to get better rate than $71.

This is another quirky Kelly Blake Moran design to go with Morgan Hill and Heritage Creek in the area. The greens have severe undulations making them a challenge if you don't get your approach near the hole. Some of the holes just don't make sense from a design view from my 40 plus years of playing golf. It is playable even as unconventional as it is, but I would not put this on any list of good golf courses in the Philadelphia and surrounding area.

Golf courses fit some eyes and not others. This one is just too quirky for me as are other courses by the designer. It could be in US Open shape and it wouldn't change my opinion of this layout.

The greens were not cut, very slow. The greens are to big and to many level changes, especially for how slow they were, you almost had to drive the ball to get the ball moving. There was no ranger to keep play moving, it took 21/2 hrs to play the front nine because of a slow group, we had to skip the 9th hole to get around them and the. Finished the back in 11/2 hrs.

I got a great hot deal, so it was worth the money, would never pay full rate unless they start keeping up with the course

I couldn't wait to play Lederach, as I always do. normally it's in fantastic condition and it's a great layout. Not today. Many Fairways have patches of what looks to be a disease. What else could it be, we just came off the wettest July on record...

the greens were bumpy and slow as well. Let's just hope it's temporary because this is a GREAT COURSE!

The wet season is causing maintenance headaches. I heard that this course had to spend 5k additional to keep insects down as a result.

A very different and challenging course. The greens were in great shape and had some very unique ridges and humps. A few of the holes had blind Tee shots and some very interesting fairway hazards. Staff was great and I would recommend this course to anyone other than a rank beginner.

Course conditions were very good for a hot day however pace of play was very poor. For a Wednesday afternoon we played the front nine in just over 2 hours but the back nine took 2 hours 45 minutes. The group in front of us said the had mentioned it to the ranger but he never did anything to speed up the group slowing play. Also for a 90 degree day we saw the cart girl on the front nine but she was nowhere to be seen on the back nine.

The pace of play is a common problem here. The course is attractive but most golfers try to play it just like an open course and get penalized. Agreeing it's my biggest issue with this course. Otherwise I really like it !

Ledrach is a nice course, and was in great shape considering the heavy rain a few days before.

You really need to know the green complexes and where you are hitting the ball, there are rolling hills, and a lot of blind hazards. If you can - go drive up and look at the landing areas and where the flags are located - it can make a big difference.

For example, on #2 there is a huge bunker that you can't see from the tee over the ridge, same for a few other holes. I would also say you could play holes entirely different based on where the pin is located, number 18 is an example of that - pin in the front vs. the back makes it a different hole.

Enjoyed the round, but expect a few tricky shots when you play there.

Have played Lederach many times over the past few years. We were expecting soggy conditions after the huge rainfall the day before. The only area that showed any water was some of the traps. The greens were smooth, fast and firm and in the best shape I've ever seen them. They are in better condition than any public course I've played this year by far. We played quickly in just over 3 hours which really was great for me. The staff is great here and very helpful.

Some of the pin placements were in ridiculously hard spots and the course should ease up on that . The placement on the 18th hole was at the top of a hill and you might have a 2 to 3 foot area to stop the ball otherwise it would roll 30 yds past in either direction. The 12th hole is the hardest par 5 I've ever played and that includes many of the great courses on the PGA tour. Hitting the green in regulation takes 3 massive blows with your driver and 3 wood to a blind uphill green. Good luck on that one!
