#85: Ironwood Country Club North Course, No. 16

The 16th hole on the North Course at Ironwood Country Club (Marilyn Chung/The Desert Sun)

Course name: Ironwood Country Club North Course

Hole info: No. 16, par-4, 387 yards

Course address: 73735 Irontree Drive, Palm Desert

Pro shop number: (760) 346-0551

Of note: Unlike the South Course at Ironwood, the North Course’s back nine plays through the housing component of the country club in the hills of south Palm Desert.

Playing tip: The temptation is to hit left off the tee down the hill, but there are some nasty lies and bunkers in the left rough. A better play is a 3-wood down the middle for control.
