Golf in January
The biggest let down was that after booking the tee time online, we arrived, and were advised that they had closed all tee boxes and that we were going to have to play from in front of the closest tee box. I would have been ok with that, except they were still charging normal winter rates. At the end of the day, I was glad to get out and get a round in, in January. With some work and the addition of some cart paths, this could be a nice course, until then it is not worth the money the are asking to play there. I have no problem paying $100 or more for a round if it is worth it.
Golf on Xmas Eve in PA
Course management called me about a hour before my tee time. They said it would be walking only. I did not mind because I like to carry my bag when I play. I should have contacted Golfnow because my payment included cart. Course was very playable despite it being Christmas Eve day.
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.
Course has a very interesting layout. Had some water damage from the extreme rain. Got around in 3:40. Try Iron Lakes
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.
Will play again.
Nice course,good conditions and a 3 1/2 hour round in great weather make for a very good day.
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
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.
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
I played the first day of spring and the course was in nice shape for this early in the year.As always the staff was very friendly and the pace of play was very good.I play this course several times a year and it is one of my favorite courses in the Lehigh Valley
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.
