Game Changer At Ironwood

This course is completely different. It’s so nice to see the greens full of grass, and actually cut and rolled properly. The change from a year ago is night and day! The greens have consistency to them and actually roll out, which is nice! I will be coming back out to play soon!

One of the best courses in Gainesville for the price

Ironwood is one of the best courses in Gainesville for the price. Keep in mind that we’ve lost three courses over the past few years , well at least two recently. The weather was great around 70°, the course condition is pretty decent obviously it’s not the best, but you’re not paying a high end price either. I find it to be pretty challenging,
and at least it does have some par fives and fours, one of the other courses in the area is getting better, but doesn’t have very many above par three. They offer food and bar as well as a beverage cart girl that goes around the course. Overall I really like Ironwood.

greens were somewhat sandy from previous days maintenance

Very few people hence pace of play was great. the ground had been maintained earlier in the week when I played but didn't learn of this until I turned up and 9 holes closed.,!
Greens were suffering from the maintenance. pace was just right

only met 2 staff one took booking the other check tee time so unable to comment on them ref friendliness and didn't use off course amenities

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.
