Great Track, worth a trip
Came from Waterloo to try some new courses and was pleasantly surprised by both the layout and conditions.
Assuming more of a farmland type course due to the location, this couldn't be farther from the truth. We were delighted by the course design the more holes we played: mature trees, unique shaped greens, and a variety in hole shapes and elevations. No two holes were the same and the layout made you use most of the clubs in your bag. An enjoyable feature was the individuality of each hole - the course is spread on a big plot of land and each hole felt unique and not crammed in tightly. I only heard one fore call during the day likely as a result of most holes not running too close to adjacent holes. The layout felt like that of a private club.
The conditions were fantastic. Lush and green with minimal brown as expected with the wet summer this year. Even so, the upkeep is clearly there. The greens rolled pure and quick, especially when compared to most Golf North countryside courses. Majority of the greens have slopes and breaks to read.
Pace of play was appreciated on what appeared to be a busy day. As a speedy twosome of walkers, we had 3 other twosomes let us play through at somepoint and were only forced to wait for the foursome ahead on holes 15-18. Total time of play was 3:10 so no complaints.
Overall it is certainly a hidden gem that I'm surprised I hadn't heard of from anyone else. Worth the drive if you're in the area.
We got out early so no waiting but it was getting busy after we were done. The weather is fantastic and everyone wants to get the last games of the season in! Thanks Ironwood for for a great day on the links!!
5 hours ... waiting on every tee. Good layout, and Considering playing in Movember, course was in good shape. Hit a tree on long par 3 #7, looking for ball 2 feet from pond and steppied into a hole, up to my knee....couldn’t see it because of leaves...home icing knee now. No Porto potty’s... women beware:)
Poor pace of play
The course was in good shape but pace of play was poor need a ranger out there to wave ppl through or tell ppl to get moving
Easy Play Great Pace Good for Most
Enjoyed the day at Ironwood. The course is good for all. The tee blocks need some upgrade but its good. Decent clubhouse. Not overly challenging.
Worth a look.
Not my favourite
A little disappointed in this course. It was my first time playing it and won’t be in a hurry to return. While the grounds are green, the ground is rock hard and some tee blocks are solid crab grass. Staff in the clubhouse weren’t very friendly or welcoming. No washroom on the course - first course I think I’ve ever played that doesn’t have some sort of washroom facility throughout play.
Beautifully maintained course
Course is always a pleasure to play, would not consider my home course but have played it a few times. They could benefit from having a Marshall at this course as I have been there a few times where the pace of play is brutal. For example, getting stuck behind a fivesome on a weeknight where we should have been able to get 18 in but we spent more time waiting than playing. The staff they do have is excellent and always a pleasure.
Course in great condition
The course this year, even with extra play, is in great condition. Fairways are well maintained and the greens roll true. Overall I would say the entire experience was good.
