Wonderful Municipal Course

Ironwood is an excellent course for the money. It is well run by the city of Gainesville. The course was in very good condition including the greens. Course staff was very friendly and accommodating. It’s a gem in Gainesville.

Complete 180

The course has taken a complete 180 degree turn since the new superintendent Kyle and staff have taken over. Greens we're basically unputtable 6 months ago. They are close to, if not the best greens in gville right now for a public course. You finally get a true roll. The speed of the greens are amazing compared to 6 months ago. The grounds crew has done an exceptional job with this course. Would def recommend playing here. Def worth the money. Keep up the great work.

Purgatory

I’m not a bougie golfer by any means however to be told you have to play with a twosome to make a threesome because it was so packed. They wouldn’t rain check the back 9 due to horrible pace so I won’t be back.

For comparable $ Turkey Creek or CC of Lake City are much better. If you want to use golf now here show up and see how busy they are first or book just 9 holes and pay again.

Fairways and tee boxes are decent. Greens are atrocious.

Greens are horrid. I think I had more sand on my putter than was in the actual bunkers. Big issue I have with this place is the no cooler rule. If you’re not going to allow someone to bring a cooler and drinks…maybe have your cart girls rolling around well before we reach the 17th tee box. Too late by then. Not to mention, who doesn’t love a cigar while golfing. This is a no smoking course so kiss that goodbye. For the price. It’s not really worth it. Better courses elsewhere nearby with better “rules” that are in better condition.

Ironwood in June

The front nine greens were in decent shape, but the back nine greens were rugged. The staff was friendly, the course layout was ok.

Fine for locals

It's hot, it's Florida. Course layout has enough challenges. Fairways hard and the balls roll. Bunkers were fine and manageable. Staff very friendly. Tee boxes weren't perfect but were more than playable. Greens need watering and attention though, many are baked.

Ironwood on April 28th

The greens are rough and patchy brown. Hard to understand with the amount of rain we’ve had in the last month.
Also on a crowded day it makes no sense to allow so many golfers to play as singles. They constantly press you from behind then pass your foursome and slow down the pace of play in front of you.

One more time

Played again as we are visiting our son and his family. Course is dry, but so are all the other public courses here. Greens are still in pretty good shape. One or two not so good. Fairways are sandy in spots, but again, it's Florida.
