Ironwood specializes in teaching kids from all ages, whether you’re 2 or 102, you’re always welcome at the Communities Course. Ironwood has been one of the stops and a regional qualifier for the Drive, Chip, and Putt -sponsored by THE GOLF CHANNEL for the past 7 years and is the home course for several local high schools. During the summers, we offer various junior programs for those just getting acclimated to the golf course. As a part of the mission of the PGA, we seek to impact the lives of young people by providing educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf.
Ironwood has a year round junior rate of only $5 for kids up to 17 years of age, so feel free to take advantage of that whenever your heart desires.
