We played post rain and the course drained well, was well manicured and pace of play was fine. The greens were a bit slow and not due to rain. Just hadn't been cut in my opinion. We will be back

They let a 5 some play and we and three other groups caught up with them on hole 8. it was 20 minutes per hole. The 5-some played from the back tees and we're terrible. When we told the marshal he did nothing besides drive off never to be seen again. Clubhouse did nothing either.The two groups in front of us stuck it out but we and a group behind us left after the 10th hole.

Ruined a nice day and wasted our money.

I like this course a lot but they have got to get the greens rolling with some speed, they are horribly slow. The course otherwise looks great, and appears undamaged form the recent storms.

Had a very early 7:42 am tee time. The course was in great condition from tee box to greens, with only one small problem. They had watered the course earlier and it was more of less water logged. At first I thought they must have gotten rain overnight, but I asked a marshal and he stated they had watered the course. Seems kind of odd since we had rain in the forecast for that evening. Regardless, the course is really nice, I would just advise playing in the afternoon to let it dry out some.

I played on 4/15/17 and was very pleasantly surprised at how nice the course was. Friends had raved about the other two Firewheel courses (Bridges and Old Course) so I did not have very high expectations for the Lakes. Everything was in great shape, fairways and tee boxes, putting greens were in great shape. The course is beautiful, lots of water. Overall a very good value for the price. Some challenging holes. I will definitely be back.

The staff was friendly and helpful, carts are in good shape. We saw a lot of walkers as well.

This course was in excellent condition. Greens played true and made for an entertaining day for my group. Course was packed for Good Friday and pace was slow on a few holes but the Marshall did excellent by staying in touch with everyone. The fee was great to top it all off. Keep up the great work!!!

Challenging course if you are aggressive. Lots of water but it's not overwhelming. Even for high hidicaps. Green are true. Unfortunately I played when the wind was 25 MPhil. Must play it again soon.

It is mid Feb...yeah, so the fairways haven't grown out yet, it isn't lush and green...but what a fun track to play. The Greens were in great shape and rolled really week. Would play here again in a heartbeat!
