No Drinking water on the course

The temp was over 90 and there was no drinking water on the course. I know that all the courses quit providing this when Covid was an issue. That's not the case now and most courses are back to providing it. I can only guess that Firewheel just got used to not doing this and management hasn't pushed it. Water at these temps is a necessity not a luxury.

Great Experience!

My 14-yo grandson and his friend played this course for the first time. They really enjoyed the course. It was challenging, but great for young players.

Nice local course

Greens roll true and in decent shape. Wide fairways. Sand traps could use some new sand and more of it. A fair amount of water on the course but not much comes into play. Some tee boxes could use some TLC. Overall a good course, classic design, good pace of play (4 hr round) and good value for $22 with cart included.

Very friendly

It was our first time playing this course and the staff was very friendly.
It was a rainy day but we got to play almost the whole course. It started pouring down more rain and we had to leave.

Fun round

Really like this course. Some difficult holes and some that you can attack. Plenty of room off the tee which I like. Greens were very smooth.

Always a good pace of play on weekend mornings.
