is located in North Smithfield, Rhode Island.
is owned and operated by Ralph Ferra. Shortly before Ralph
was going to retire, he decided to join some friends for golf.
Prior to that fateful day, Ralph had not swung a golf club
had such a good time that he was bitten by the 'golf bug'.
Ironwoods as we know it today, grew out of the desire for
Ralph to have his own place to practice. You see, Ralph would
frequent other local ranges and he soon tired of waiting for
a hitting bay and frankly the other ranges did not have all
the amenities that he desired.
Ralph decided to build his own range with all the amenities
that one could imagine such as:
square foot putting green
service repair shop
you have a chance, stop by so you can experience Ralph Ferra's
'field of dreams' fondly called Ironwoods Golf Practice Facility.
