Do not buy hot deal !

Look closely before booking this hot deal ,it is for 18 Holes but it is for walking so when you get to the course they charge another $16 each for cart !! We ended up paying almost $80 to play here and the course is in very bad shape I know there has been a ton of rain but all the bunkers are a muddy mess. There is no way most players could even walk this course! So thanks fireridge and GN for ripping us off.

Good course, great value

I grew up playing fire ridge in the early 00s. Course is in great shape as of mid-July. The back 9 is a difficult walk but the front 9 is radially walkable. Greens and fairways are in great shape. The layout on the back is challenging but overall I really enjoy playing Fire Ridge.

Great layout - needs some course maintenance

This is a tough course to play 'blind' - but they do give a tip sheet to know what is coming up. Lots of blind tee shots due to hills. The cart paths were in bad shape. The back 9 was in way better shape than the front 9. I enjoyed it, but probably won't go back.

Never again

Haven't played Fireridge in about a year. It has totally fallen apart. Can barley distinguish between rough and fairway. Front nine cart paths are absolute back breakers. Bunkers are now waste areas. No reason to even have rakes. I got a hot deal for $12. I wouldn't play it again for free! Such a disappointment cuz I really like the layout.

Great Track

You’ll use every club in your bag here. Front nine is kind of open and back nine is tight with most holes emphasizing accuracy off the tee to set up a playable approach shot to the green. The greens are large, very soft, hold well and roll well. The staff was very friendly and gave our group some suggestions on how to play certain holes. It’s advisable to drive up the holes with blind shots to see where you need to hit your tee shot in order to have a workable second shot otherwise you may have too much club and drive through the fairway into trouble.

Fabulous Course

This is a beautiful course with plenty of hills and challenges. One of my top two courses to play all year. If this course was in a populated area as opposed to Amish country they would be overwhelmed with players. Over an hour trip from Akron but well worth it.

Interesting layout

Fire Ridge was in great shape. The greens rolled true with decent speed. The fairways are wide and nice and the rough was recently mowed(it was a few inches high and playable) There are plenty of Sand Traps and water hazards to make the course a challenge. Some shot placement is required as lakes and creeks are strategically placed near "driver" distance. The staff was friendly and the price was great for weekend golf! Try the homemade pie at the snack counter!!!

A nice, hilly course in Amish country

Two totally different nines, front is rolling hills, back is newer, with steeper grades. Greens are excellent. Don't like #16, which has a split fairway, to an elevated green. Seems like an unnecessary tricked up hole.. Pace of play excellent, slightly over 3 hours. Clubhouse is an older home on the grounds, could use a little modernization. Staff was extremely friendly, providing a tip sheet for all holes. Front nine considerably longer than the back nine, so a few strokes can be improved there. A good course at a great Golfnow hot deal

The Gem in Millersburg

Huge elevation changes, views of pastoral settings and challenging golf mark this beautiful course just on the east side of Millersburg Ohio. Easy to get to and theee most friendly staff you'll ever encounter. Playing a round by myself was completed in just under two hours twenty minutes. This included courteous players who let the faster player play through. No doubt about it..going back is a guarantee!!!

We had stopped by a day early to look at the course and an employee had met us in the parking lot and was extremely friendly and took us thru the clubhouse and explained when the course was built amd showed us several holes out the back of the clubhouse view! The day we played the staff was very polite and met us after our round to hand me $27.00 dollars back that had been over charged to my card because of a glitch in Golf Now account...WOW! I had no idea that I was overcharged...Thank you for your honesty! Definitely would recommend the course was in great condition as well but the staff was second to none!

Fire Ridge

When driving up to the course, my wife was reminded of the courses she played growing up in Belmont County. The course was in great shape, very challenging. Greens were fast, you definitely want to stay below the hole, but they were very receptive as well. The scenery was awesome, very picturesque. Was definitely worth the drive. We are definitely planning on playing there again in the near future. A must on any golfers bucket list.
