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.

Always a Great Course

I played Golden Oaks a number of times this year and the course was always in great shape. The greens especially which I would compare to an elite private course. And let's admit that we all like playing on greens that are fast and roll true. I love the layout and challenge that the course provides. My only complaint and there's not a lot that can be done is that the amount of leaves on the course this time of year making finding the ball near impossible if not in the fairway.

Pretty decent

Tee to green condition is up to par. Some greens have dead patches but for the most part nicely kept and on the fast side. Fairways are quite generous. Perhaps too generous. Layout is pretty decent.. just decent. Lol

Practice putting

The greens were perfect but FAST! Make sure you have a little time to putt before you play or you'll be 3 putting a bunch. Once you get the speed down, you'll have more fun on the course.

Great Elevation Changes and Interesting Layout

Great course, good for all levels of golfer. Greens tend to run on fast side for a public course. Course architecture is fun with challenging holes with cool elevation changes. Always enjoy my rounds here.

Greens had not fully recovered from aerating

Aeration had clearly been done recently but the greens were healing nicely. I was hoping to be paired with someone but had to play as a single, behind a couple of foursomes. Took my time between shots and still finished in 3 hours and twenty minutes. But the course is so much fun to play even playing like that could not ruin it.

Breathtaking Beauty

Playing Golden Oaks is always a pleasant, yet challenging, adventure. From tee to green the course is usually in great condition and the views are just breathtakingly beautiful. The staff is always courteous and friendly as well. Can't wait to come back!

Lifetime best score, great 19th hole

Shot my best ever round of 77 here first time playing. Course in great shape, undulating layout. Soft accessible greens. Fantastic halfway hut and 19th hole. Pace could’ve been a little better we got done in 4.5 hours. Will definitely come back.

Great golf course

Golden Oaks is a great golf course with country club conditions. Bent grass fairways and greens are something rare in public courses and it is so well maintained. The layout and routing of the holes is terrific.
From the bag drop to the pro shop the staff was very friendly and helpful. Some of us drove over an hour to play here but it is worth it and we’ll do it again.
