Tired Course

The character of many holes is good but sadly the condition of the course leaves a lot to be desired.

OK course for the money

Greens need some love but overall it is a fair course for the price. I wouldn't pay over 30.

Green Burnout Issues

This course is usually a good mainstay for me as I have played many times. Course presents some decent challenges and one can work on various aspects of their game. Staff is always friendly and it is a good buy with the Golfnow hot deals, This round the back nine greens were clearly burned out from possible over fertilizing of the those greens. Front nine was in good shape. Good bar area and cart girls are always nice and friendly.

Very wet, greens were good and had a great round

I tee'd off just after 12pm after it had been raining all morning. I knew the course would be soaking wet and cart path only. Any day on the course is a win in my book. Greens were in great shape.

Ironwood is still deserving of the name Ironweed

The greens are very slow where there is grass and bumpy where the grass is dead or replaced with weeds. If you liked the course in the past it won’t disappoint you. If you expected the city of Gainesville would improve it’s condition over the two decades they have owned and managed it you will be sorely disappointed.

Bang for your buck!

Ironwood is a sold course that allows you to use your whole bag. There’s some some fun holes out there short and long par 3 risk reward holes all through. Not a bad option.
