Basically it is in pretty good shape. This year they are struggling with a water issue..too much of it. Lots of mushy areas in the fairways and around the greens. The tee boxes are in good shape. The greens were just aerated so putting was interesting. For warm up you have to hit from mats even though there is ample grass available. I’m not sure why we hit from the mats. Nice large putting green that is usually very similar to the pace of the on course greens. Well worth the fee I paid I would say.

Hot weather

Course had received heavy rains over night so it was sloppy and cart path only. The tees and greens are in good shape. the practice range is still mats only. It was very hot and humid but there are several old water stations on the course. It was still a great value for the highly discounted rate on GolfNow.

Great, except one thing.

I really like this course. Making good shots is a must and it’s always in great shape. The only issue I have is that their golf carts are terrible. They have GPS which is helpful but they are the absolute worst for driving (tough to turn) and braking ( brakes hardly ever lock) in this area. If they would fix that, it would be a much better experience.

Grass was too long.

Tee box had long grass so I could not see how much high tee must be.
Green had lot of sand instead of grass.
Grass was too long even in fairway.

Time for TLC

Time to get the bogs out of selected fairways, fix some tee boxes and redo the traps.....This along with sanding the greens(which is understandable) turns a potential gem into a bit of a construction area......The staff is great and because of conditions, green fee's and beverages were reduced-a classy move. But let's get our course whipped into shape with some NRL $$$$$. It's TIME!!!

Great Condition

Though I have played here several times before, my most recent trip found the best conditions I've seen here. The fairways were over-seeded rye, giving great lies every time, and the greens were fantastically fast fast.

The course is short (6500 tips) fairly tight in spots, and has lots of trees, and several holes that skirt the edge of the neighborhood. Many par 4's require precision off the tee with less than driver. Water/creek/pond in play on 15 of 18 holes. All the Par 3's are different, so you can use PW through 5 iron.

My 2 Main Issues with Iron Horse:
Pace of Play: There is often a bottleneck around the Train(bathroom/halfway house) that can cause long delays. If you aren't the first one off or playing at twilight, expect the rounds to exceed 5 hours at peak times.

Unwalkable: There is a pretty good hike between 1-2, 6-7, 11-12, 1-18, and 18 to clubhouse. Also, you don't see the clubhouse at all until you are finished.

Good shape for this time of year

With DFW munis having dormant fairways, I was looking for a course that was overseeding their fairways. Iron Horse was nice! On top of that, the greens were in above -average condition and rolled nicely.
