Second time playin this course. Greens were well kept and plenty of water, trees, and sand traps to ad variety to the course. Great pace of play!

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.

Played on a Saturday morning after some thunderstorms on Friday night so it was cart path only. Lots of very muddy areas on the course. This could've contributed to the 5 hour round and super slow greens.

For $39 on a weekend morning the course has great value. Golf course is fairly open with a few tighter holes with some water. I would like to check it out again in drier conditions.

The greens were the slowest I've played on outside of playing on greens that have recently been punched. It appeared they hadn't been cut in a couple of days. Was like putting on fairway grass. Bunkers were not maintained and puddles in places. Not bad value for the money but wish the greens were just a little better. Played the Lakes course the same day and it was in better condition.

The sand traps were poor and if you were even a little off the center of the fairway, it was tough to find your ball. The greens were in decent shape. Middle of the Road course.

Way too many people were packed in. We played about 12 holes in 5 and a half hours and gave up. The other players weren't very classy either. Blaring music as they would pull up to hit their ball and slam on their brakes. Didn't matter if you were in your backswing or not. We won't be going back.

The staff was very friendly. The course has a nice layout. The sand in the sand traps had no softness to them. The dirt was packed. The Tee boxes didn't have much grass which the fairways were similar. The greens were good. Overall the course is in winter condition. Hopefully it will get better as the weather gets warmer. The course needs some TLC.

For twenty bucks a person I will be playing again soon.

Pace of play is awesome for beginners such as my self. No one rushing behind you and the staff was excellent.

Showed up early both days I played and they let us out on the course when we got there.

This is the oldest of the three Firewheel courses and it still offers a challenge to most who play it. However there are some areas where the city of Garland has neglected it. The bunkers need work with some new sand instead of the hard clay sand mix that is in there now. Another area of attention needs to be the tee boxes. They need to be leveled out and reseeded.

The staff is great and it's a good course for just about anyone. I just hope the powers that be will fix the issues I mentioned above.
