The Club

Welcome To Ironwood

Test your golf skills on either of Ironwood Country Club’s two private 18-hole courses. Located in Palm Desert, right in the heart of the Palm Springs area, our golf courses wind through the rolling foothills of the Santa Rosa Mountains and create a unique golf experience unmatched in the Coachella Valley. Original designs by Desmond Muirhead and Ted Robinson, in consultation with Arnold Palmer, have since been enhanced by the strategic redesign of several holes by renowned golf course architect and former PGA player, John Fought, to further cement our status as a premier private greater Palm Springs area Country Club.
