About

Holes 18
Type Semi-Private
Par 67
Length 5155 yards
Slope 103
Rating 67.4

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.

Beautiful Golf Course!

My group had a great time from start to finish. The staff was friendly and the course was so green, lush and clean. The rough was a little long, but with all the rain we’ve had, I’m sure that’s a battle in its own. I highly recommend this hidden gem.

A cool course and in great condition for this time of the year

I could tell that greens have recently undergone some maintenance, but I just had to hit with a little more mustard than normal.This course is clean, green and in awesome shape. I’ll definitely be back.

Great track!

Course is in great condition and well maintained. Tees and fairways full of Bermuda grass unlike many other courses I’ve played recently. Kudos

Very slow play, no marshal and organization was poor.

The issues with this course were with pace of play, and the starter being quite disorganized and sending groups that were unscheduled through. Poor experience despite good course conditions.

Awesome course!

Well maintained, challenging and a great length. I am still new to golf, but had my best round here...though it was tough for me to achieve with the windy conditions. Highly recommend!

Impressive!

Haven’t played here in 4-5 years. What a huge difference from what I can recall. Greens were GREAT! Everything was so clean and well maintained. Kudos to the greenskeeper and the staff. Pace of play was good considering the time of year. Food at the restaurant was great and beer was ice cold!

Great course!

This was my 2nd time playing here as I’m new to this side of the valley. I was impressed when I played here a couple months ago so I decided to come back and play. It was even better this time. Greens were great! Pace of play and the rest of the course conditions really impressed my group and I. Can’t wait to come back.

I LOVE THIS COURSE!

I’ve been playing this course a few times a year the last 3 years and it gets better every time I play. Greens were slick, tees and fairways were great! My group really enjoyed the pace of play. Can’t wait to come back!

WHAT A GEM!

We played here in the summer after playing a few neighboring courses prior. My group was very impressed then with the conditions compared to the other courses we visited. We decided to come back and again, we had a great time. The staff was great, greens and playing conditions well exceeded expectations. After our round, had a great time in the restaurant. We’ll definitely be back regularly!

Nice course

It was a cloudy day with showers so the two of us played a round pretty fast as we were the only ones out there. Not a long course which is nice for us higher handicaps.

Excellent course conditions

The fairways were in top condition. The greens could have be a little faster, however.

My complaint was in the slow play of the foursome ahead of us. We were a twosome and the Sunlakes foursome ahead of us showed no interest in letting us play through.

Executive course

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.
