Detailed description

Penn National Golf Club, Iron Forge, is a Semi-Private, 18 hole golf course located in Fayetteville, Pennsylvania. Penn National has two 18-hole championship courses. They are, The Iron Forge Course and The Founders Course.

Iron Forge first opened for play in 1997. The course was designed by Bill Love.

Iron Forge opened for play almost 30 years after its sister course, The Founders Course. Love set out to fit the golf course to the land. The Iron Forge starts near the Michaux State Forest, in the foothills of South Mountain, and makes a single loop home, passing through a variety of terrain that offers exciting golf and views of the surrounding mountains and the rich, open farmland. In contrast to the Founders Course, Iron Forge is nearly treeless - a tribute to the Scottish links land courses, where the challenges of the natural environment can be havoc enough for the wayward stroke. The course is a blend of modern golf, with beautifully sculpted fairways and bent-grass greens, and the tradition of golf with its soul laid bare to the forces of nature.

Penn National Golf Club plays to 7,009 yards from the back tees. The course rating is 72.9 and the slope rating is 123. Par for the course is 72.

During the construction of the Iron Forge course, a small lime kiln was uncovered. Dating back to the early 1800's, this kiln is located behind the 9th green. It has been preserved, and guests are welcome to visit
