Skill level of golfers:
Low to high handicappers. It’s a user-friendly course. It’s a challenge, but it doesn’t beat you up. The length and the layout don’t make you take 10-15 on a hole.

Longest hole:
17. 488-yard, par 5

Shortest hole:
13. 118-yard, par 3

Most difficult hole:
For the women, #15. It’s long at 423 from the red tees. For the men, #3. It borders the river, the hole’s narrow, and the tees are close to the OB area. If you slice or pull, it’s difficult.

Most interesting hole:
12. Our signature hole. It’s just a pretty hole. Lined with trees and an elevated green. For the guys it’s narrow so a lot don’t use a driver off the tees or they end up in the trees.

Ironwood's 7th hole faces the new clubhouseBest time of day to golf here:
Mornings. We have leagues every night so mornings are a good time to get a round in. If you want leisure come in the afternoon.

Pro shop products:
Golf bags, balls, gloves. We have a new pro shop with clothing for men, women and children. Nike, Nancy Lopez, Antigua, Abacus. Sunglasses by Sundog and Paula Kramer.

Dining facilities and information:
Our dining area seats 150 for banquets and weddings, special events and meetings. Our clubhouse is a brand new $1 million facility, so it’s impressive.

Other activities:
We have a pro named Rob Bannerman who comes from the city and lessons can be arranged with him.
