Great course

First time playing Firewheel ! Where do I Start! Great course and very nicely laid out! Very challenging yet offers nice and wide fairways! Greens were prefect and challenging! Only negative is not at the course but at the people that is playing! If everyone fixes all the divots on the greens then we wouldn’t have to fix them before we played our shots!
For the staff! Keep up the great work it was a fun course and I will be back!!!

Absolutely worth a visit

The course was in amazing shape. The Bent grass greens were the best in the area.

Friendly pro-shop personnel and right on top of things

All in all an enjoyable round of golf. The only negative was all the ball marks on all the greens, it was severe on every green! I get that it’s a public golf course, but they need to address this! Also, many of the traps were a mess, not raked and the bunker mess was visible! The pro-shop staff were great!!

Champions/Masters

Rough needs to be groomed.
Needs to be a little shorter.
Fairways in great shape.
Greens could be cut a little shorter.
