Designed by Arthur Hills to take advantage of the natural layout, this course is situated in beautiful wetlands offering dramatic scenery and lush greenery. The course offers large teeing areas, fairways flowing in all four directions of the compass and 18 greens that have gradual elevations and challenging putting surfaces. One of the course lakes has more than one mile of continuous shoreline and borders the 12th, 13th and 14th holes. The clubhouse houses a pro shop, casual dinners as well as gourmet dining and a cocktail lounge. The greens and fairways are very well maintained and manicured. The course will give you a great golfing experience.

We played Ironhorse on Saturday 12/7 and despite all the rain we had experienced recently the course was still in immaculate condition. There were a few areas that had some casual water, but aside from that it was hard to believe that their grounds staff was able to get the course in this good of shape. I would strongly recommend this to course to anyone looking to schedule a tee time this winter.

Incredible value with Golfnow. Very interesting course with many different holes. Super finishing hole. You need to be able to carry the ball on a few holes. Only drawback: speed of play could be a little long. I liked it so much that I returned the day after.

This course is built on a swamp so if it rains, expect cart path only. Very nice layout, tough course to score on, elevated greens, well maintained. Plays longer than the yardage. It was a private country club, great locker room, and free range balls. If you can get this course on golfnow for less than $40 grab it. One of the top ten in West Palm.

This is an excellent layout. The fairways are generous but precision is required on the approach shots and water lurks continuously. There are many pretty views to enjoy, lots of sand cranes and gators, it's almost like a trip to the zoo. I will definitely be returning. The only down side is that the staff had a bit of a dismissive attitude but I didn't care because I knew I was getting a great value.

This is a private course that the public can play using GOLFNOW. It's in very good shape. Although it did not seem that difficult, the slope was 131, and my score was pretty high.

Excellent quality for the price. Good service. Nice practice area with free range balls before the round. Pace of play was great (less than 3.5 hrs). Some greens needed a little work, this was being done as I was playing. Other parts of the course were in good shape. WPB golf can be very overpriced, did not feel this was the case here

The course was in great shape when we played. It is part of our short list of best golf course when we are in the West Palm Beach area for golfing.

We strongly recommand this course if you are looking for a good challenge.

The staff is better than it was. Clearly they cater to the members first which I get but the fee is a premium for this time a year. No driving range open means we had to wait an hour to tee off. pace was fast . love the course goes easy to hard and has grown a lot in the last two years.

The layout is reminiscent of any good South Carolina lowland layout and is in very good condition...This is a semi-private country club, so we did see members playing and congregating around the clubhouse and we could sense the staff was a bit more attentive than at a public course...The course is challenging but fair and will give you all you want...The holes were interesting enough that I can recall a few of them and on a Saturday afternoon we virtually had the course to ourselves for $29...can't beat that...

Coming from UK was not used to showing photo id to play golf and then told to tuck my shirt in before being good to go! Everything else fine till a lightning break and lots of rain which meant cart pathes only which is a real pain when you dont know a course for distances. Loved the course but not for those put off by driving off over lakes or streams. Good condition and great to play at offer price.
