The Wheel

Excellent shape, best it’s been in a few years . Weather helping, but putting greens are consistent and have done a great job for a public course. Reasonable. Pricing.
Would recommend for anyone looking to plat in Fairfield county.

The head attendant was rude - tried to make extra money on the golf carts by doubling up people and not obeying COVID rules
I will never go back again

Hot Deal Price Higher Than Course Charges

Can you please explain to me why your hot deal was higher than what the course charges? I paid 36/player for the threesome, while the course charges only 25, that's a big difference!!!
