Played on 6/13/2009. Course was in very good shape. Great value for the price. Pace of play was good, I didn't feel rushed at any point. Good customer service. I'd play there again in a heartbeat!

This course has made significant strides in becoming a fabulous muni course. A great deal of the kudos go to the new head pro Jeff Wambold. He has personality and the ability to teach any golfer at any level. He was the 'gem" Allentown was looking for. Things should only go up from here, unless the city's idiotic Mayor puts his sticky fingers in it. This course is finally making money and the pro is doing his best to put money back into the course. The pro has tons of great ideas, but he has a brick wall of a mayor to deal with. Great course for the money!

Good, solid, affordable course. Well maintained over the past couple years.

Played here many times and consider it a great value for the area. For the most part, it's well taken care of and pretty forgiving. The driving range is weak, as you can't hit driver and they force you to use mats. However, the putting & chipping greens are nice. On the weekends, play can be pretty slow.

average value and good practice areas

For those of us that are not inclined to pay mounds of money to achieve a satisfying round, this is the ticket for golfers on for any level. Having played all the golf courses in the area and surrounding areas, when my league stops at this course again it is a welcomed return. Areas of improvement are : keeping the the fairway spongy; keeping the well watered , their chemical program is as good as any course I ever worked at, and I have worked with the mainentance staff. The course will force you to hit long iron or wood into some greens, but scoring is not out of the picture if you have a bad day, some holes will lend scores to boast your confidence. Overall, if the city elects a Mayor that likes golf, the course will reflect it, otherwise it will suffer fiscal cuts the same as any other branch of a cities bureaucracy.

Muni Golf

Your basic, unkept municipal golf course, that has potential with a decent layout. The conditions here have always been lacking. Unraked bunkers, fairways that fail to meet basic standards, greens that are generally bumpy and slow. Unfortunately, it is relatively inexpensive and convenient, which brings out the golfers anyway, and because of that there isn't a burning desire for the city to properly invest and maintain the course. In other words, you get what you pay for, which is golf on a poorly conditioned course and 5 hour rounds.
