Gogebic Ironwood Golf Course Review

gogebic golf club, ironwood, mi

My wife Jo and I played nine holes of golf at Gogebic Country Club on October 1, 2021 on a day that was so warm it felt like July. I have been wanting to play this course for several years so I could do a review on it, but everytime we were in Ironwood, and able to play, they had a tournament or the tee times were all booked up. Finally our schedule and the course's schedule lined up.

The fall tee time special was quite reasonable - $10 green fee (9 holes). We usually walk the course unless the terrain is extremely hilly. Gogebic is a very walkable course, mostly level with modest undulations in the fairways.

Gogebic Golf Course Description

The 18-hole course plays 6,030 yards the longest tees for a par of 71. The course rating is 67.0 and it has a slope rating of 113. The course is surrounded by woods and has trees separating and giving definition to the fairways. The rough between the fairways is cut short, so it was easy to find balls that missed the fairway. There are a few ponds and creeks that add some beauty to the course as well as hazards. Fairways are mostly straight from tee to green, with the exception of four holes that have dog legs. The greens are small, several are elevated, and many are tucked in close to the woods. It wasn't until the last hole that I realized there were no sandtraps. Overall Gogebic is a pretty golf course.

Gogebic Golf Course Conditions

The greens were in very good shape. The tee boxes were well laid out, mostly level and some elevated. Every tee box had easy to read yardage markers and a colorful diagram of the course layout. The ball washers at each tee were in good condition. A bench is at each tee box. Paved cart paths throughout the course. In most cases the path from the green to the next tee was direct, with a few exceptions of a long walk or drive.

The fairways were in adequate shape but adjacent to the fairways the grass was spotty with some bare ground. The summer and fall in Ironwood had been unusually hot and dry so we were not playing the course under normal conditions. Hot dry weather left the fairways and the greens were on the "hard side" and as I mentioned patches of bare ground were common away from the fairways. You got a good run out on drives, but also more difficulty keeping the ball from rolling off the green. And the greens that were elevated meant your ball could roll quite a bit off the green. But one hazard was moderated by the hot and dry weather; the creek that runs through the course was dry!

Gogebic Country Club Pro Shop and Club House

The course pro shop is quite modest, having only the basic of golfing accessories. Club rentals are available and it looks like they have a good fleet of golf carts. What passes for a lounge area in the pro shop looked like it wasn't used very often.

However, the sparse pro shop accommodations are contrasted to the very classy stone club house - the Elk & Hound Restaurant. The Elk and Hound overlooks the course, has a very spacious lounge area, a full-service bar and is one of the better rated restaurants in Ironwood.
