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.

Great conditions

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.

Best Golf Value in PA

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.

Bring your "A" putting game

Course conditions were good to very good, even after a couple days of rain. Pace of play was good, finished in roughly 3:40 and only waited a couple times - longish rough that made finding balls challenging was the primary cause of any slowdowns.

Greens were deceptively fast and only got faster as it warmed up and dried out. Subtle breaks on many greens, given their speed anything above the whole was tough - our threesome totaled 5 putts that ended up off the green! Don't get me wrong - they are VERY fair and roll true, just faster than most in the area.

Definitely recommended, good value at normal price, excellent if can get a discounted tee time.
