The course is just fine
Golfnow was my only problem - it was raining all over the area - at 73 years old I decided not to play because rain predictions were 65% and the temperature was in the 60s - not ideal or even good conditions - because the course did not close Golfnow decided to keep my money. Better be 100% sure you are going to play no matter what are these guys are going to rob you.
Don't bring a putter - can't even play the greens
The fairways are hard, the bunkers are hard and the greens are truly some of the worst I've seen. They look nice but the ball leaves a massive divot, the people that play here don't fix their divots and you don't even want to putt here. Extremely inconsistent, bumpy, slow, etc.
Also...1/5 holes you're NOT ALLOWED to even hit at the green!! They put a flag in the fairway and call it a hole. RIDICULOUS. There should really be a warning for this. Save your money and either go elsewhere or go to the range. Really displeased.
Fun round in August - who knew?
PLayed on a near perfect 72 degree morning. Bengrass greens were a little fuzzy, which they kind of have to be in the heat of summer. Bermudagrass in good shape, bunkers were playable, and rest of the course in fair condition. We did play at 7am, which meant we had dew, recently mowed fairways, and chased the grounds crew all morning. 3 hour round is awesome. I still wish courses could find some way to offer water.... it's why I can't play much right now. Covid rules suck.
One of my favorite courses, but temp on #6 of champions and Masters is shut down with several bad greens Have to play the Traditions
This course was in excellent shape. It hasn't rained hard in a couple weeks and the greens on this course are in phenomenal shape.
Course was in really good shape Champions/Tradition 9s we’re both very nice and greens were very soft and receptive. Played in 3 and a half hours which was great, nice outing will be back.
Do not let them put you on the masters course. It is in terrible condition. Greens were in terrible shape. This management should be fired. A beautiful course has been destroyed.
Great layout. Back nine greens are poorly maintained bent grass suffering Summers Heat.
Fun course to play
We played 2 nine hole courses and the 2nd nine holes were a bit different being back in a more wooded area. The greens seems to need a little work on the masters nine hole course but over 4/5 stars. Very fun to play with some good views!
Greens are awful
Tee boxes and fairways were in okay shape. Course was not too hard and there weren’t many holes that make you really think too hard at all.
The greens were awful, however. This is one of the only places in Dallas where they attempt to upkeep bent grass greens and that’s a bad decision on a muni course budget. They’re extremely slow, nobody repairs their pitch marks, and some of the greens are not doing so well in the heat of Dallas. Spike marks toss your ball way offline, if you don’t hit one of the numerous pitch marks to send it even further offline. Played a few days ago at pecan hollow, greens were quick and true. JUST USE BERMUDA AND DONT BE GIMMICKY. Bent grass is a terrible idea in Dallas so I’m not sure why they even tried.
Pace of play was poor. Starter did a good job but nobody in my group played quickly, and neither did the group in front.
If you need to play at firewheel, play at the lakes course. But otherwise play at pecan hollow for the same price if not cheaper for a much better experience.
Tee sheet etiquette
Been to this course 3 times now on the golf now HOT DEALS...... every time I go to this course there sending me out as a single when the Hot deal is clearly a foursome, don’t know what’s going on in the shop , the sole purpose of golf now is to be able to play with all skill levels & walks of life. Never should a customer dictate who there going to play with especially with golf now. The bridges staff needs to do better
