Pinebrook/Ironwood Golf Course
Very nice short course but the greens were very challenging
You won't need your driver except for a 378 yd par 4. All the other holes can be reached in one. However, you better be able to shape your shots. To be safe, it's probably the type of course when you need course management.

Fun executive course
The greens were outstanding. Lots of water and adequate length to challenge any golfer.

Enjoyed playing course
Greens were excellent. Fairways were not as good. Challenging course even though it is short; number of well placed traps and water comes into play on several holes.

Very nice course and greens. Staff very friendly.
Loved the course and staff. Close to home. Made reservations on line at Golf Now and had no problems. Will definitely do this again.

Very pleasant starter. Would be good value for money except for crowding and very slow play.
Played here a month ago and vowed not to again as we were behind a foursome that was incredibly slow....spending 5 or more minutes to fish balls out of pond; inefficient and slow movement of group, etc. on 1st 9. Behind IMG students (2 foursomes) on 2nd 9 and it was worse...instructors letting students fish for balls in pond/mud with their golf club for lengthy periods while remainder of foursome watched; carts on apron and greens. etc. Backed up 5 foursomes behind us and we eventually left w/o completing course.
Tried again this week and again terribly slow play...over 5 hrs on executive course. Weren't advised ahead that league of 40 plays around our tee time on TH, half on front and half on back. Waits were much longer than they should have,,,no good flow to the game. Doubtful we'll return.

My wife and I enjoyed it very much.
Very good practise for your short game.
Use the Par 3 holes as approach shots für you regular golf rounds, you can leave your Driver in the bag.
Accuracy is the key.
My wife even enjoyed playing, because the holes were not as long as on a regular par 72 course and she played better than ever ( 6 pars and 1 birdie !!! ) which earned me a good cooking
when we came home.

Front 9 course of play was excellent, at the turn groups had already started teeing with more waiting,
Staff was very accommodating and gave us a raincheck for 9 holes.

Greens are good and very fast. Rest of the course is just ok. Lots of very slow players.

Short course, with lots of par 3's Greens in very good condition.
The course is in very good shape. Tight with plenty of water coming into play. Greens recently relayed, great to put on.

Some tricky holes...
This course is very short but it is not easy. The 18th hole you have to shoot over a large oak tree and water. You can not even see the pin. The greens are a 10 out of 10. This course is on the pricey side if you dont go through www.golfnow.com.

nice executive course, good value on golf now, but normally kind of pricey
nice executive course, good value @ golf now price. But like most Florida courses in the Bradenton area, kind of pricey @ the regular rate. Super fast greens most of the winter. easy par 4's but some very challenging par 3's.

Inside a condominium complex, no beauty, no atmosphere. felt like a practice course for my short game.
It said that the greens had been redone and that the course was pristine, not even close. If you want to practice you're short game and not have access to a clubhouse for food (candy bars and machines) this is you're course

Exec course on steroids
This aint no pitch and putt. Greens just reopened with new Burmuda Pro. Not a flat green on the course. Most par 3s over 180 yds. Remainder have water carries. Longest hole 370 yds. Plays like par 5. Play it once and you won't sleep that night. Come back and it will get under your skin. Play regularly and see your game evolve.
