Got a chance to play IV on 11/8. It’s an excellent course and I’m looking forward to playing it again.

Price tag a little high

Really neat course with some awesome holes. Had an almost 5 hour round and waited on every tee box/second shot. It is a really nice course but the 79$ price tag is a bit excessive. This is definitely a 40-50$ course(in my opinion)

Iron Valley Strong

Very Fair layout fast but true greens. Not too much trouble hidden and no force carries. Can’t wait for the chance to go and play again.

fun layout with outstanding views

weather was only disappointment as it had been cloudy and damp for a few days........course was in excellent shape and had a lot of fun.......would not recommend for someone prone to falling as it is very slippery on the cart paths and some greens and fairways ........just the way it is.......had a nice time in spite of the weather

Really nice course except for 2 shots

I really enjoyed this course today. It is a very difficult course and the greens were running extremely fast and the greens were treacherous with some challenging pin placements. I enjoyed the layout a lot except for the second shot on 2 of the par 5s (#7 was especially unfair and # 13 which had a little more room) where there really is not much of a place to reasonably lay up. My friend and I played the blue tees which was long for me (I am not a big hitter) but I managed. Beautiful layout and scenery. Some of the greens were 'normal' and some were very long and narrow.

Not worth the price

The course has a very fun layout but some fairways were in terrible condition, it almost looked like they were scraped with a piece of machinery. The course was definitely not worth the $79 price tag for the condition it was in. I drove over an hour to the course on the suggestion of a friend, it was not worth the drive!

Beautiful, Tough Course-Condition Needs Improving

This course has some beautiful views and very challenging holes. The fairways plunge up and down and leave you with some tough approaches; if you miss, you need a very good short game to even have a chance at par (or bogey). The greens were in beautiful shape, however, the fairways had some bare patches as did some of the tees. It is definitely worth playing but if they improve the overall conditions it will be a solid 10.

Needs work

Played this a few times a year, for years. Never seen it so bad, Greens great but fairways & tee boxes not so much. Probably had to do with virus & weather. Super lay out for better then average golfers. Bucket list for sure.

Incredible Experience

Love this course, the hole layouts were interesting and appealing to the eye. The views you had were incredible. The greens rolled true and at a good speed. Some fairways had some bare patches but it never affected my round. Overall after finishing this round I wanted to play the course again.

Too many people

Informed they closed the front 9 down for a group and the rest had to play back 9 twice. Too congested after that.

Hello, thank you for reviewing the course. We apologize for the delay of play during your round. Please know that this is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. With an uncharacteristically full day, we work hard to accommodate everyone who visits our course and allow our guest the chance to complete their rounds. With that in mind, we are working to best control pace and allow everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve. Thank you for playing Iron Valley Golf Club. We hope to see you again soon.

Great layout: So-so course conditions

Always enjoy Iron Valley and I don't play it enough. I understand the top-dressing on some of the tees, but the fairways were barren--worse I've seen it. Greens were fine. Discount should have been applied.

Slow play due to a larger group from out of the area that didn't know the course nor how to play ready golf. 4 hour 45 minute round with cart on a Tuesday late morning tee time! Didn't see a marshal on the course!

Good Layout, Bad conditions

Fun & challenging course in a great setting. Fairways, greens & some tee boxes are in bad shape. Some fairways is hard to find any green grass. Greens were slow and bumpy. I have played this course a number of times and this is the worst Ive seen it.

Good, not great shape

Fairways were burnt. Geese had taken their toll on the greens on some holes.. Love the course just I've seen it in better shape.

Great golf in uncertain conditions

I have been playing Iron Valley since 2016 and have not reviewed it until now. I probably should have done this years ago but the golf course has not changed and is still magnificently kept. There are some stunning views from the 1st green and 2nd tee of the Lebanon Valley and you can always tell someone's first visit as they are taking video and pictures from this area. It is an easy course to walk as I played it during the beginning of the Covid Crisis and figured it would be best to walk. The front 9 and back 9 are totally different and well worth walking the steep hills on some of the back 9 holes. They did an excellent job maintaining the golf course during the time it was closed in PA and have made great changes to their pro shop and food services to make everyone feel comfortable in interactions. I only gave it a 4 star for the course conditions because some of the greens had a few dead spots on them that looked like they were caused by mowers, but everything else was in great condition.
