Rated 2 out of 5 by MattKelley1 Disappointed
I have played Ironhorse several times both before they were purchased by Troon and afterwards. I will say its one of the best layouts in Kansas City and one that I enjoy. I just finished my round this afternoon which I was able to book on Golf Now to save some money. However, the price was the best part.
I was really disappointed in the pace of play, front 9 took 2 hrs and 45 minutes and wasn't managed at all. When you have a GPS system its pretty simple to manage, just pay attention to where your slow group is and send a marshall out to move them along.
Also the conditions of the golf course were really disappointing. Several of the bunkers haven't been dressed and are like hitting out of concrete, we haven't had a lot of rain recently so this was unacceptable. The greens were really beat up. I understand that public golfers don't understand how to fix a pitch mark but it was like the greens hadn't been cut and rolled in a while.
Overall its normally a great track but I couldn't recommend this place for the rack rate of $58. Only worth it if you get one of the Golf Now times.

Found this on Golf Now for $35 last week. Heard it was nice...and the rumors were true! Great challenge...not a grip it and rip it course. Lots of course management and shot selection. Plenty of risk reward also. Greens were fast and true. Must play if you get a chance!

Rated 4 out of 5 by u000007331120 Good condition tee to green
The course was in great condition from tee to green but the greens were full of pitch marks and rolled a little rough.
It appeared they may have been punched in the last 2 weeks and still had yet to make a full recovery. Will try it again in 2 weeks.
It makes me ill that people are too lazy to fix a pitch mark on a green when it takes 10 seconds, I fixed at least 2-3 on every green

Ironhorse is a great value. Course conditions were excellent (although greens were extra soft and a little bumpy due to recent rains). Shot value was great on every hole.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ek080296 Great Course but Thirsty
Course was in pretty good shape overall. Frustrated that with a 1:00 tee time on a Sunday, there were no beverage carts at all. 90+ degree heat was hard to handle with nothing to drink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 4032spring The course is challenging but much fun
This was a fun but challenging course for me. Lots of streams, bunkers, hills, and trees; very pretty and well maintained. Accuracy and course management both important. Tee boxes were being aerated. Some new concrete work was in progress on the smooth cart paths. Fairways, greens, and bunkers were all in fine shape. I saw some rough and/or bare spots on the fringes around some greens, but nothing too bad. The GPS on the carts was generally helpful, but not always. I hope to play again...definitely!

Extremely hot day, heat index over 100 degrees.
Pace of play great, course was in good shape for the heat and greens fast. Nice layout and good scenery. Fun day and fun course. Will be back.
