Bridges Course needs updating
We played Firewheel because we heard that the course had been renovated. Apparently, that work happened on the Old Course or the Lakes. The Bridges is still pretty rough. Perhaps, Bridges is next on the list. Not a bad layout.
Crab grass on the greens but good sand in the bunkers
Crab grass in the greens made for some inconsistency putting. Bunkers were pretty good to play out of.
Just not up to par. No staff for 5 minutes at check in, no direction for first time player as to starting hole location or multi course (9’s) layout. Course not in good condition the box’s and greens and overall despite dormant season plenty could have been done to show care that has not been. Inexpensive for a reason and will not play again unfortunately.
We played The Champions and Traditions courses today and they were in decent shape for the end of winter, although the greens were not in the greatest shape, a lot of bumps and holes/plugs/ballmarks that need to be repaired. I suspect that in the next month or so they will be in great shape.
Good Winter Conditions, friendly staff
Staff was friendly offered my to go out early. Driving range was grass although a bit beaten up but still decent. Course layout is really challenging, fairways and greens good for this time of year. Only issue with condition was some of the bunkers had not been racked leaving large footprints and uneven surfaces, also many leaves. Bit those were minor issues really. Lots of sand in the bunkers which is nice. Great value.
Good winter conditions
Course overall was in good shape. Dormant bermuda was fine. The two different nines had vastly different bentgrass greens though. Masters was slow and green and sticky. Traditions were browner, faster, and harder. Odd. Pace was good for a cool Sunday afternoon.
One issue the course seems to be having. Without Marshals, people are making their own decisions on which nines they want to play. I played my front 9 (Masters) and when I made the turn to back 9 (Traditions) there were 2 groups on #10 tee. People are not following the suggested and expected routing.
This is a good winter course. Challenging enough. They just need to make sure people are following the correct routing.
Two down one to go
Nice course layout, elevated greens. Many leaves on the fairways, but it is winter! I will definitely play this course again and look forward to trying The Lakes. That will complete the three courses offered here. Very nice place to play.
Great course for the price. Carts are new and clean. It’s a 27 hole track so the next time I play it it could be like getting to play a new course. Love that concept
Great course, fast play
Great fun course. Driver off everything but par threes. Nice and open but water to make you play strategically over creeks and ponds. Really fun and will be playing more often to get in quick 18 holes
I’ve played here before and liked it, but it’s been awhile. However, was really disappointed, primarily due to greens. In awful shape. A lot of mowed down weeds on the greens, rolled very poorly. Too bad, it’s a nice layout
