Golden Oaks Golf Club
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.

Not and overly difficult course. It has wide fairways, fairly large greens and not too much tree trouble. The fairways were in great shape and the rough was not extremely deep. The greens were rolling decently quick and very true. Some greens had a decent amount of slope to them but held shots very nicely. There are a few holes where water comes into play. The sand traps were raked nicely as a found a few that day. it was a hot day and we saw the beverage cart a few times which was nice. They also provided water on the course. I would rate the course as a very comfortable course to play and would recommend the trip there for the great conditions.
I played here yesterday as part of a group that plays various courses in the area. While a little further out from the Philadelphia area, this course was certainly worth the extra 20 minutes drive. A cart attendant loaded my bags onto a cart just like a private course. The staff was friendly and welcoming.
The tea boxes were in very good shape, the fairways were well groomed and the greens, the tricky were in excellent shape. There is a fair variety of bunkers and water hazards. There is an excellent layout overall. I also found this to be an exceptional value, as I believe this was formally a private course and it shows. There is a very nice restaurant with a decent menu with a balcony overlooking the 18th green. Overall an excellent experience. I would definitely return and recommend this to anyone in the area seeking challenging golf At a reasonable price.
Course is in great shape love the layout, staff people are very friendly and helpful great food after round pro shop staff exceptional . Recommend it to everyone
Fast Greens and Good Architecture
Greens had been punched and rolled this week so they were fast but the holes did not allow balls to stay on line. A tough combination, but I know it is only temporary. Pace of play issues were partner and green related as opposed to course management. Great course, always enjoy the challenge and the Golden Oaks experience.
Excellent course, varied staff
This is easily one of the top 5 public courses in Pennsylvania. Layout, conditions, variety - it’s got it all. But this used to be a private course, and the crust of higher class golf still remains. You’ll find most players and staff generally pleasant, but there are older staff who lack the social skills that keep public golf alive. This course will challenge your golf game and your patience bc alike.
Always a fun venue
With this course in excellent condition.... the last 3 holes are a treat.
Should be on your regular list to play.
If you live in SE PA this should be a must on your play list.

Third time playing here. Teed off in a foursome at noon on Thursday, Oct. 28th.
I caddied my way through college at Aronimink, just outside of Philly, which is on most lists of top 100 courses in the US. Golden Oaks reminds me of Aronimink. The course is majestic and grand. Fairways are tree lined but super-wide. The greens are a hellish nightmare of speed and slope, but the greens are perfect. Putts roll out forever. It means absolutely nothing to be on a green in regulation because three putting is always on your mind. You want to play conservative and aim for the middle of the green but that is a recipe for a putting meltdown. The alternative is to aim at the flag and risk shortsiding yourself where an up and down is 100% impossible.
Golden Oaks has the best pitstop cheeseburgers anywhere. They are made by the restaurant chef in the morning, internally seasoned to perfection, and large. I've found myself playing other courses dreaming about Golden Oaks burgers at the turn.
Like Aronimink, the clubhouse veranda overlooks the first tee, and the 9th and 18th greens, so even after you're done your own round you get to live and die again, watching, three screens of live action.
The tree of us paid $25 each for a Hotdeal. The dreamburgers are $5. You'd be crazy not to play Golden Oaks.
