Iron horse is becoming one of my favorite places to play. The course layout and choice of tee locations gives the player a variety of shots to play off the tee. The greens are always in good to incredible shape, the bunkers can be rough some times, hard- but not all of them- (I guess I shouldn't be in 'em anyways:) ). The staff is friendly, welcoming, and engaging. The club house has a great selection of merchandise. The food selection in the dining area is one of the best around. It's nice to eat before or after the round and have better than decent food. Iron horse has really good food!! On the course they have cold beers, liquor, hot dogs, suasages, snacks, gatorades... the views are nice. There's some train cabooses thoughout the course and some decorative tee markers that are pieces of railroad I think. In some of the trains are bathrooms... and they are for the most part clean... clean enough I think ladies would use 'em if you bring some with you. All and all its a great time at Iron Horse. - sometimes pace of play may slow down but they have marshalls regurally doing what they can with the slower groups. - I am usually never in a hurry to finish a round and get off a coure though. Golf Over chores anytime of day!!

Great course! Met my father there, as we both drove in from out of town. We both enjoyed the round, definitely a course for any skill level as they have have several tee box options.

One of the longest games I have ever played bc of waiting. The course design was the cause of some of the slow play as many holes were literally on top of each other. Surprisingly I played well but wasn't a fan of this course

Reasonable green fees, Chris in Pro Shop is excellent, greens are the best I have seen this time of year and very fast. They do hold but you need to be close to pin on some holes since the ball may run off and into the water. I was disappointed with the big pot holes at the edge of most of the cart paths around the course! Really rough and they need to fix these issues. Fairways good and yardage marked well. Tee Boxes rough on some holes at the white tees but the longer tee boxes are not as bad due to not as much play. On five holes no carts on fairway and not all were par threes. If you drive to close to water hazards or areas marked no cart, the cart will not go forward and you have to back out slowly! Carts are controlled by GPS!! Kind of a pain sometimes. It is better to not hit a driver on many of the longer holes due to sharp dog legs with high trees/creeks. Iron play is the key on this course. The greens will test your putting skills. Overall really good course and fun to play.

I was very wary to play this course, given the fact that is a true Country Club experience. The front half of this course is played with in the community that this course is located in, so houses and commercial drainage areas. You really have to keep a narrow ball on the front half of this course. The GPS was a godsend on this course, as the distances were deceiving. Overall, this was a great course to play, it was very fun. The staff and the regulars were extremely nice. I would recommend this course to anyone of any skill level.

Not a straight hole on this course. Creeks running across at very strategic spots. Many hazards are blind from the tee box. I found keeping your driver in the bag and setting up your second shot is the way to approach most holes. The greens were very fast and challenging. Stay below the hole or possibly putt off the green and into water.
