This course is easy to play and I enjoy playing here but the pace of play was awful. Almost 5 and half hours to finish a round.

Rough around the edges
Fairways in good shape but washouts abound just off. Need work around cart paths and first couple holes the greens are a bit shabby for this track...They DO get better as back 9 greens excellent...Sand traps bad and rain has had some to do with it, along with the yahoo's who don't rake.....Still a favorite to play and will improve with drier conditions....Little TLC needed around tee's and off fairways...
First, let me say that I am an Arcis Prime member, and I play Fossil Creek and Iron Horse frequently. Iron Horse has been in great shape all summer, and I use their driving range at least once a week. However, my most recent visit was disappointing. Tee boxes were rather poor, it was evident most of the markers had not been moved in several days. Fairways were average with several bare spots. Greens were slow and also had some bare spots. Bunkers had not been touched since the rains last month and were mostly dirt. Snack stop (at the train car) was not open all day. We had lunch after our round: no menus available, 2 of our 4 orders were wrong, dining service was below par.
Slow and not in good shape
I used to play Iron Horse often years ago but stopped because it was not a good value.
Decided to give it a try again and was extremely disappointed. Tee off at 7:30 am and it took 5 hrs to play as they started a small tournament on hole 4-8 and backed everything up. I don’t know about you but usually when to go out early part of the plan is to play at a decent pace. That was not evident and the Ranger did not seem to care.
Course was in below average condition at best. Greens had. a lot of damage and fairways we’re spotty in respect to grass. Not good. Do not play here and reward lack luster conditions for what you spend. I’ve played courses in better condition for $20 vs $60. charged to me today. Will not play again. Take my advice on this.
Front 9 greens improving as back 9 in good shape. So much rain so course soaked and mud everywhere...Need take care of dead spots on fairways and cart paths...Hard to review given the weather past 2 weeks..
Much rain past days but good drainage. DID get rained out after 11 hours. Disappointed with the greens...Been away for awhile and were always in top shape early summer...Hope they improve for the fall season as I live on the course!!!
Course condition was disappointing. Tee boxes were poorly maintained. Many fairways showed signs of stress. Greens were best overall and rolled true, but many holes showed damage to the rim. One hole on back nine (par 4) is undergoing what appeared to be new sod installation and tees were moved way up past midpoint yardage. Water stations are appreciated though and essential for the Texas summer heat. Not recommendable at this time.
Beautiful as always
Love playing here. Although we went through a tough summer, you would never know based on how well they have maintained this course!!
not sure how to rate this course
i really want to rate this course higher as it has some great holes, but the conditions were all over the place. ill say that the greens were fine, punched about a week ago but did not affect the ball at all as they have come back nicely and are relatively quick. some fairways are nice and grassy and soft, then others are muddy and other yet dry and with huge bare spots. the tee boxes were very uneven so i just had to get creative. only saw one bunker and it was fine. there was decent amount of loose sand to control the shot. i played the first 13 in an hour and a half with nobody in-front of me but then at 14, it took me another hour and 20 minutes to finish the last 5 holes. still a great round under 3 hours starting at 915. i will give this course another shot but not for a while. im a huge greens guy and can usually deal with the other stuff, which is why im fine with this course and for the money, its worth it.
Tight fairways with bizarre conditions at the end
Greens were in great shape. The fairways, especially on the back half of the back nine were bizarrely inconsistent. In one spot standing water so bad that algae is growing. 3 feet away rock hard drought conditions. Not sure what's going on there but needs fixing.
Father’s Day round
The course was in very good shape, and the pace of play was pretty good.
Played from the green tees. Course is tight with creeks and trees.
