From the time I pulled up the staff was very friendly. Eric in the pro-shop greeted my group with great enthusiasm and made sure we had everything we needed. The player assistant made sure we had our cart and were ready to go. The course itself was in good shape. Tee boxes are nice, bunkers could use some work but that can be said for most courses. Cart girl made a good pace around the course and was very friendly.

Lots of fun! The course was in excellent condition, despite of a lot of rain the previous night. Not a difficult course for someone with a high handicap like me. Despite being fairly crowded because of the holiday, play was smooth. All in all a pleasant outing!

This was a fairly easy course for new golfers. Wide open and hardly any water. The bunkers were hard as a rock but you shouldn't be in those anyways. Cart girl didn't show up until the 18th hole and the pace of play was so slow. All in all not bad would recommend and will play again.

Good value for the money. Course was in great conditions, greens were in excellent condition. Course is not overly challenging, but very enjoyable. If returning to Firewheel, I would probably choose the Lakes or Bridges over the Old Course. But nevertheless, the Old Course is well worth the cost.

Great play for price. It did rain on me both times I have played but when it wasn't raining the course played pretty well. Greens are slow but that would be my only feedback.

We had a confirmed tee time at 8:22 AM. We were ready to play at 08:10 AM. We had to wait in line for a chance to tee off until 08:45 AM! Apparently the golf course has no Starters nor Marshals! Too many golfers are thus allowed to get in line as they please or the the Golf Course overbooks Golfers. The result was a very slow day. On the positive side, one may get to rest a lot while waiting to take a shot at Firewheel Old Course...

Greens were in good shape, but a bit slow. Some fairways We're pretty dry/hard, which gave very tight lies and felt like hitting off concrete. That said, and had a great time overall. Would recommend

Can't beat the price and level of maintenance in my opinion. Fun course, various levels of short to long holes. Bunkers were in bad shape, but I guess I shouldn't be in there anyway :) Overall, great course, great price.
