Golden Oaks Golf Club in Fleetwood, Pa. is considered one of Berks County's finest courses with a four-star rating from Golf Digest, which also named it as one of the top "Places to Play." It was voted the "Best Public Course" by readers of Berks County Magazine. Designed by local architect Jim Blaukovitch, the golf course has a classic design that appeals to players of all skill levels. The course has wide, inviting fairways but there are also some challenges provided by the rolling terrain, featuring elevation changes that range from subtle to dramatic. Be prepared for a variety of uphill, downhill, and sidehill lies. Trees line Golden Oaks Golf Club's fairways and strategically placed bunkers protect the greensides. The golf course has some tricky holes but it's not overly punishing for the high handicapper.

Friday PM w/son

The course had a tournament in the morning. We booked what we were told was the first time after tournament. WRONG. 2 groups before us, but theyplayed pretty quick until the back 9. They took a long time at halfway house and we waited on all but 2 holes (17 & 18). Course was in best shape I have seen in years. Greens were good speed, and accepted a shot. Only downside is the pricing policy. Just not sure how/what they charge. Like playing here, but as a senior, I can not afford close to $100 to take my son for a friendly round.

Country club conditions

The course is beautiful. The fairways are wide and the greens are large. The tees allow you to challenge yourself. The par 3s are not short, which is challenging. I wish more golfers would fix their ball marks because the greens are large and roll nicely. Overall, I would say this is one of the best courses in the region at a great price. The shack at the turn has great beverage choices. The restaurant and bar is top notch; a beverage on the patio after 18 is recommended.

Unplayable Bunkers

At first glance the bunkers look decent, raked but the sand under the surface has not been maintained! Like hitting off a sandy cart path.
Before you think this guy doesn’t know the correct technique, up until last year I played 125+ rounds of golf per year, maintaining a 7 hdcp with 45 yrs of experience. I played out of a lot of bunkers!
Either work to release the compaction of the sand or add more sand.
Basically ruined a decent score.
Other than the lousy bunkers, I know just don’t hit into them, it a great course and worth the price of admission.

Love the layout

One of my favorites. Greens are true and roll out, even after rain the night before. Did not wait at any hole or for any shot. My one criticism is the bunkers. Although some were a product of the rain the night before some are in need of improvement regardless of weather. All the staff from the pro shop to the starter were friendly and courteous. Greens fees compared to other courses are fair. They stack up well. I've paid more for less. I love the layout of the course. There isn't a single hole that i dislike.
The only off course amenity that I experienced is the snack shack at the turn. The hot dogs are great!!

Unbeatable value

I happily make the 1 hour 15 minute drive from Philly to play this course all the time. If you're in the area and haven't played this course then you're seriously missing out. Course is in unbelievable condition and the greens roll true. Feels like you're playing a private course. Hands down has been my favorite course to play in PA thus far. Very friendly service. Range is great. Food is also awesome. Get a cheeseburger from the halfway house at the turn. You're welcome
