Old Couse Firewheel

The course is in good shape. The greens are still hampered by the cold winter, however, there are other courses that have similar green issues.

Old Course Firewheel

It is nice to see that Garland is taking care of the Old Course once again. It is a nice layout, and the fairways and greens are in good shape. I will play this course again.

Old course feels OLD

I played Firewheel last weekend and the difference between the Bridges and the Old course are significant. It really feels like the Old course has not been maintained nearly as well. For the price it’s not too bad but I’ll try to stay at the other courses for sure.

Fall golf

Considering leaves were everywhere which is expected for this time of year, the course was in great shape. Some of the greens were a little bumpy but nothing to be overly concerned about. Pace of play was good considering they had two walking groups ahead of us. Still played and under 3 & 1/2 hrs

Love this course

I love this course. although some of the ladies tee boxes are hard as a rock but overall this course is great for the money and the pace of play is excellent. I did have one issue where a drive my husband hit went a little left and ended up on the rim of another fairway, the player there picked up my husbands ball. Please learn the etiquette, Wonderful course and wonderful pace wonderful price.

very slow play.

In 4 and half hours had to quit on 13 dued to darkness. Two groups of 4 in front playing extremely slow and refused to let anyone pass. No Marshalls on course. 5 or 6 greens still beat up from the weather and fairways are hard and grass packed down. Great layout but course needs care. For the same price, play the Lakes course, much better condition.

Very enjoyable round on a somewhat surprisingly good course.
Fairways are generous, but greens and surrounding obstacles are challenging.
Water comes into play more than I anticipated, mostly with creeks that cross the fairway or in front of greens.
Greens were a little fuzzy and slower than I anticipated. But, they were consistent. A couple of greens were in need of repair.

Firewheel Old Course

For a long time I have been reading comments about what bad condition this course has been in. I played the Old Course today for the first time in over two years and found the course to be in good shape. The tee boxes, fairways and traps were good. Only two green were still in a state of repair from the major freeze back in February. These two greens still need some attention but overall the couse is pretty good. Give it it a try.
