Firewheel Lakes Review

Played at 10am on an overcast day that was still very warm. The course was in pretty good shape, some of the bunkers were less than ideal but overall the course played well. Played the back tees (yellow) which added to the difficulty but it was still fair. Greens rolled pretty well only a few of them had odd stripes running through them like a mower was leaking fluid or something. I'd play it again for $38 for sure.

Rough was heavy & deep. No cart girl. Would think the pro shop would have told us! A beer or two would have been nice..

Great course!

The course is in great shape! My only complaint is that every time we've played the course there is no cart person to provide drinks or snacks to purchase.

Greens need work

Course in good condition except patchy greens and high rough where it was difficult to find your ball.

Great Golf Course

I can't say enough good things about the Lakes Course! Fairways, greens, bunkers, all in great shape..
Negatives:
1. Ball washers are disabled.
2. No cart person on the course to provide drinks, snacks. This made the round even more difficult as the humidity was high and heat was a factor.

Otherwise, great course!

Fast round!

Played solo today in 3 hours, 5 minutes! Tee time was 12:48 but they let me go off an hour early and all I saw was 3 other singles in front or behind me...GREAT pace of play!

Greens are smooth but soft enough to accept approach shots, rough was recently mowed but still long/fair (stay out of it!), fairways are firm but not hard. Tee boxes are not rock hard like some courses.

If you're battling a slice off the tee you'll end up in a LOT of water but if you're fairly straight you'll have lots of opportunities for birdies.

Interesting/challenging layout. Really well maintained!. Great pace of play. I paid a whopping $18---perfect!!

Golf at The Lakes Course

Loved playing the Lakes! Course was in the best shape I have seen it. It was like playing a country club course. Greens were great and fairways were terrific. Looking forward to playing again next week!

Good course

So Firewheel has 3 courses to choose from.
I’ve play the olds and the lakes but not the bridges(yet).

I really enjoyed the lakes over the olds course, the hole layout was great, as well as the overall experience of the round.

Will definitely play the Lakes again.

Lakes Course

The Lakes course was amazing an incredibly laid out. The staff was friendly and made the experience easy and enjoyable. The range could use some work but was good for a warm-up. Cart 88 is probably the slowest cart I've ever had in my life lol, I don't know what was wrong with it but it barely made it up the hills and slopes. Other than that this place is amazing.

It’s called the Lakes for a reason. One of those courses that requires placed shots. Will be back. In great conditions.
