This used to be one of the best deals in Central PA. It is a great course to walk but they recently implemented a horrible policy of charging one price whether you use a cart or not. $39.90 to walk 18 holes in Central PA is way out of line.

Play this one. Best value of any course I have played. Wish we lived closer, would play it all the time.

I love this course but not everyone will. It is not very long but is very tight (which is why I like it). i thought the greens were very good and I love the layout - especially 10 & 11.

This course is absolutly beautiful. Tree lined ,greeny green fairways & the greens rolled true and stopped on a dime. I have not played this course in 5yrs but it is well worth the hr drive for $25 w/cart.8.5 out of 10

I have played here three times this year and each time I can't stop telling others how nice this course is to play. I agree that it is one of the nicest public courses in the area. Fairways require accuracy and the greens are in fantastic shape. We found this course through the cancer card and have gone back for more play. Definitely consider this course next year in your travels. It is well worth the drive to play.

This was my first game here and I was impressed. The fairways are fair (not too wide or narrow), there are no boring holes, and the greens are large and true. We really enjoyed it and will play it again whenever we are driving thru on the turnpike.

One tip for the rookie. You don't see any water on the front nine and your first experience is blind on the 11th. The water in front of the green is nearly invisible until you are in it. Don't be lulled into expecting an easy approach as I was!

This was my golf course when I played for the local H.S. team back in the mid 90's. I have since played all over the United States traveling with my work. I recently came back to join Iron Masters after realizing that this is the nicest golf course in the area. In addition to the nicest course, I also believe the annual membership is well priced also. As mentioned by heb1966, "The amenities aren't the greatest, but the golf coure more than makes up for it. After all, would you rather have a five star golf course or a five star clubhouse?". The golf course is all I ever really pay attention to. The only time I go into the clubhouse is to post my score. The food is good in the dining area and the course is extremely well maintained as well as challenging and scenic.

My favorite course in the area. Well maintained and the staff are very friendly and courteous. Very scenic course and the fees are very fair.

The gentleman who wrote below me summed up the course...I'd just like to supplement his opinions. This is an outstanding course...took me quite by suprise! It is a narrow course and straight shots are a must. The true catch is the scenery! The suttle ups and downs through trees with mountains in the background make this one of the most enjoyable golf courses I've played in central PA (and I've played about 40). So many holes are memorable. Also, the staff is as friendly as anywhere I've gone. This is an absolute must...highest recommendation I can give for a non resort course!

Iron Mastes good value for the money

Good golf course.

Relatively short from the white tees, but challenging nonetheless. Your tee shots must be well placed on the tree-lined, narrow fairways in order to execute good approach shots.

The greens are generous in size and are in very good condition.

The first two holes are short par fours that require accurate tee shots. The third is a downhill par three of about 160 yards to a large undulating green. The fourth hole is a short par five that can be reached in two. It is easy to make birdie, but an errant shot could lead to an easy bogey or worse. The next hole is short uphill par four that requires a very accurate tee shot. The sixth hole is a downhill par five that can be reached in two with a long, accurate drive. However the large trees at the end of the dogleg can cause problems. The smart play is to lay-up on the second shot, leaving a short iron thrid. Both seven an eight are par fours, seven downhill and eight uphill to a very tricky green. The front nine ends with a relatively long par three to a large green. A par three is a good score.

The back nine starts with a short par four. However a well-placed tee shot could still end up with a downhill, sidehill lie. Eleven is a par four that reguires a well struck, accurate tee shot. Water in front of the green, can cause probles for long second shots and those buried deep in the rough. Twelve is another par five that can be reached in two. No real problems here. The thirteenth is a short downhill par three to a large green sloped from front to back, followed by the final par five on the course. This hole requires a tee shot that favors the extreme righthand side of the fairway. There is a pond in the landing area on the lefthand side and even a well struck tee shot that finds the middle of the fairway may have to layup with the second shot, since there are very large trees to be negotiated on the left hand side of the fairway. This is toughest of the four par fives. Fifteen is an easy par four with a good tee shot. However, one pulled to the left can find the water hazard, while one to the right will be dealing with the large oak trees. Sixteen is a short par three with a sloping green, followed by the toughest hole on the course. Seventeen is a realtively long par four with trees lining both sides of the fairway and out of bounds on the extreme right. The seventeenth green can be one of the trickest on the golf course. A par four is a very good score on this hole. The final hole, a par four that doglegs to the right, is like most holes on the golf course, requiring an accurate tee shot to the tree lined fairway. A good tee shot should leave you with no more than a mid-iron for the second shot.

This course is a little gem that I highly recommend.

The amenities aren't the greatest, but the golf coure more than makes up for it. After all, would you rather have a five star golf course or a five star clubhouse?
