Nice layout

I play this course quite often in all seasons and this year the wet summer took a toll on the course but they have done a great job of fixing most of the fairways and the greens are in very good shape.The Pro Thor is a class act and always friendly

Review from 9/19/18

The staff is great. They go out of their way to make sure you have a great day. The course was still recovering from all the rain we had but they were working on it to get everything back to normal. I love this course and will play it again.

okay practice course

okay practice course if you leave nearby.

Course still has sign of bad summer - spots with no grass on fairway, stinky lake at 18th hole.

Green is in good condition but could be better if people repaired their ball marks.

Average course

Only golfed 9 holes since they paired us up with people who were not very good golfers and slowed down play. Disappointing day

Ok

The course was in good shape but due to league activity, play was extremely slow.

Friendly and helpful staff

The course is very nice, Good pace of play with challenging holes. The distinguishing aspect however was the staff. There was an issue with Golf Now and our reservation yet the lady and gentleman who helped us were so kind and accommodating. Our cart had an issue and they came right out to rescue us. We will definitely be back!

Very Nice Casual Course

Great time. Staff were all very friendly and extremely helpful. Course has two par 3’s over water making for a challenging but spectacular holes to play. Great fun course!

Enjoyable Round

This was my first time playing Iron Lakes but certainly not the last. Pulling into the parking lot I wasn’t expecting much but once you get on the course it turns into a beautiful and peaceful setting. Course was in great condition and pace of play was under 4 hours. Short Par 5s allow for plenty birdie opportunities, though I only carded one. I’ll be back again soon.

Iron Lakes

Par 4s are long and difficult while the par 5s are short and easy. Mix of par 3s that are straight forward but not easy. Rough is thick and so are the plentiful evergreens lining the front nine. Greens were okay but didn’t have much break. Course is in its best shape in years but still has draining issues in spots. Cart paths need some work. If you get a good rate it is worth every penny.

Fairways?

So I don't know if all the rain the previous week had anything to do with it, but most of the "fairways" were more like the first cut of rough at a lot of courses. The rough was 2-3" in most areas but it was not uncommon to see it higher than that. Greens were in good shape.

I was disappointed in the overall conditions as was the twosome that was playing with us.
