Ironwood Golf Course is an 18-hole course with many challenging elements. There are water hazards that come into play on five holes and the holes that don't have water have strategically placed sand bunkers coming in to play. All of the greens are sloped and some are undulating as well. One interesting asset of the course is the extensive mounding; the unique and interesting placement can cause uneven lies. The course is tricky but there are three sets of tee boxes to adapt to a variety of abilities and handicaps. The Ironwood Golf Course facility also features practice facilities including a putting green and chipping area.

This course is in good shape considering it is late June in AZ. A couple of par 5s, unusual for an executive course so challenging for all. Restaurant was good as well.

Paid online through golf now and paid upfront fee of $35.00 and should of had $139.05 balance at the course and ended up paying $75.00 and some change per couple which ends up being over $150.00 and change. This is the second time this has happened. I will never go through golf now and will call course for tee time.

Par 67 so course was rather short. Thought pace of play could of been quicker because of the shortness. First time a pro shop questioned that I had actually paid in full on golf now. Showed my confirmation to prove I had.

The Ironwood Golf Course was a great course, longer than an executive course, but shorter than regulation size. The staff in the bar grill afterward were friendly and extremely helpful. We will definitely be playing this course again.

Very well maintained course with straightforward layout and generous hitting areas. This is not the place to go for a long and challenging round BUT it is fun to play and a relaxing round. As long as you have the right expectations, you will enjoy.

1st time playing here and can't wait to play here again. It is a shorter course but they make up for it with bunkers etc. to keep it challenging. We did a bit of waiting on others but on a beautiful Saturday afternoon we knew it would be busy. the two of us still finished in <4hours.

Not sure if it is in a retirement community. The staff wasn't overly friendly outside of the marshal who we saw often. Can't complain though.
