Very nice track, great pace of play. Currently the greens are a little bumpy due to recent punching but that should go away soon.

Took 4hrs 30 mins for our 4-some to play. It was slow for the front 9-holes. Opened up for the back 9.

Wonder why no beverage carts on the course on a nice day. Cart girls could have made some easy money.

Couse was in good shape despite the leaves. We were told they are getting ready to aerate the greens.

The course was challenging & fun to play. the pace of play was slow. There was no cart girls on front or back nine!! That was extremely disappointing. The pro shop did not inform us. Be sure to ask before starting your round.

First time to play here. Really hot day and that kept some inside. Greens need some attention. Too many muni players don't respect the course enough to repair ball marks. Too bad. Overall a fairly easy course for beginners to intermediate players. Good value for the money. I will play it again.

My favorite of the Firewheel courses, there are 3 9 hole courses, so you get a different 18 each time (The Master is my favorite). Layout is interesting, not a ton of carries, but plenty of dog-legs and risk-reward shots. Rough it pretty thick, but the fairway is nice. Staff is always great and the practice facilities are top notch.

Very nice course. There are a couple of tight fairways but other than that the greens are in great shape as well as the fairways.

We finished around 8 and the bar was closed so we couldn't have an after round drink on the patio like we have been at other locations. Other than that, great course.

Found the course in great shape. Greens well tended but hard to read. Fairways filled in and easy to hit from. Best I have seen in years.

Had 11 tee time and got off right on time. Pace of play a bit slow (4 hours 15 minutes) but I think the wind (15-20 gusts ) had something to do with that.

Well worth the 35 minute drive from Flower Mound. Will go back.

This course is ALWAYS in great conditions. One of few daily fee courses that offers bent grass greens. The food is good. Its a must play for all avid golfers.
