“Frustrating for typical golfers”

Ironbridge Golf Club
More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: Known as one of the most scenic courses in Colorado, Ironbridge Club is the only 18-hole golf course in Glenwood Springs that is open to public play. Originally designed by Arthur Hills, the course was refined by Tom Lehman in 2014 and its 7,224 yards include a 495-foot gain in elevation from the pro shop to the tee on #12. More than just a day of golf, Ironbridge provides an invigorating adventure! The Ironbridge Grill offers casual, yet elevated, American fare. Even if you’re not a golfer, come enjoy lunch, dinner or cocktails on the covered patio or deck overlooking the driving range.

“Frustrating for typical golfers”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

This course is well maintained and has some views that people from the "flatlands" would consider spectacular, though as a resident of the area I consider the views to be much less than the best in the area.

The rates are reasonable and the staff is accommodating. But several of the holes -- especially numbers 10 thru 13 -- are ridiculously difficult and frustrating for typical golfers with handicaps greater than 18 or so. This is exacerbated by a lack of GPS on the carts or even appropriate signage or diagrams of hole layouts indicating distance to obstacles like ravines and bunkers.

The course is apparently fine for above average golfers who are familiar with it, but not so for most golfers.

“Love the back nine!”
Reviewed 1 December 2012

Spectacular views on the back nine as your travel through the canyons to get to the tees boxes. Holes 10-13 are quite challenging and memorable.

“Wow!”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

The back 4 holes are awesome 10-13. Probably the hardest course in the Valley, and the best bargain for pricing. Normally not very crowded and with a grounds crew of 6-7 they do an amazing job keeping the course in shape!

Fantastic, hard but extremely fair golf course. The views from the 12th tee are amazing. The course is in great shape and the staff was friendly and welcoming.
