The greens are a little rough right now

I played the course about a month ago and the greens were pretty good. Just in the last few weeks it’s like they lost a lot of the grass on them. I feel like greens make or break a golf course and with the condition these greens are in right now you’re not truly getting your money’s worth.

First Time

I booked thru GOLFNOW hot deals. I joined a twosome who play Ironwood regularly. Course was very busy yet play was not slow. Everything was OK accept the greens. Beverage cart cycled regularly. Carts were in good shape with USB.

Greens need major repairs

I play this course a decent amount and this was by far the worse condition wise I have seen it. The greens are in severely bad shape possibly some too far gone and will need full on repair. Staff friendly as well as all the cart girls who are always nice. Need to really get a hold on the condition aspect of the course.

Good Course, Bad Pace

I understand that it can be tough for courses (especially public) to turn away golfers, but this place has been consistently overcrowded over the past few months. No reason it should take 5 hours to play 18 holes on a Monday afternoon. I won't play out here on again until I know that there have been some changes made to reduce the overcrowding.
