Entirely too dry

It has been many years since I last played this course and it may have been that long since it was watered. The fairways were so hard and dry that it was no benefit to hit into them. Not interested in playing it again anytime soon.

Out of Control

No Starter might cause the turmoil? Usually the starter controlled but somehow there was no Starter and 2 players sum waited a single player sum ahead and mannerless players didn't let join for faster play. So it took over 5 hours! Combination of lack of field control and some players of courtesy less made the worst course.

Firewheel Old Course

WE had ideal weather for February 1st. However, the conditions were not as good as the Golf Now website indicated. The fairways were quite bare in spots, and the ground was pretty hard, so it made the clubs very unforgiving. The green were quite fast, so it too made putting a little getting used to conditions.
It's February in Dallas, TX, so I feel fortunate we have playable conditions, so I'm grateful

No Control

I played here quite often about a year. But last time there was no starter and perhaps due to that my front was two people but just one was playing and his front sum was 2. I know because from 1st hole, I waited quite a while watching my front cart waiting middle of the fairway his front on green. When I went to 2nd hole, my front guy didn’t offer me to join and just complained his front sum’s slowness. I skipped 2nd to join the 2nd front two who suggested their front sum of 3 who reluctantly let me join after skipping two holes. Took almost 5 hours. I will never return to the course.

Good option

Very good value for money and the course was maintained well. Greens were in good shape and fairways were mostly well groomed. Not overly challenging and a good layout.

Great Value

This was my first time to play at this course and it was very enjoyable experience. The course was well taken care of. Only feedback is that the leaves be blown off of the greens but other than that great course.

Olde Course

Practice options for a public course were very good. They have 3 courses and I played the Olde Course. It was awful. Fairways were mostly bare with sparse patches of a multitude of grasses. Greens were pretty good and had some challenging undulations. The condition of the course in general was so bad I will never even consider playing it again.

Pace

Really just need the staff to speed up the few groups that ruin it for everyone else. If a groups can’t finish in 4 hours on their own with a cart they shouldn’t be playing golf.
