Lakes @ Firewheel

Fabulous layout. Super friendly staff. Nice cafe style sit down lunch area. Putting, Range and chipping areas were all in phenomenal shape. Steady course of play. All in all, a great course, great staff, great facilities.

Wet weather

A few days after the rain

Tee boxes & fairways were nice. A few greens I recall having dirt at the edges.

#2 is one of the nicer-looking holes on the course. You may have to go over the water on the par 3 3rd & the par 3 11th.

The scorecard is incorrect in that there is a ravine that crosses the fairway on #10. There is a narrow entry to the fairway on #12.

A deep ravine is close to the undulating green on the par 5 13th. After the lake that factors into the tee shot on the right, avoid being on the right side of the fairway/the rough on the right because that makes for an approach to the hole over trees as well as the ravine.

Missed the mark

Great layout.....that’s about it.

Greens are very inconsistent. One will be fast, the next will be slow as all get out.

Only 1 grounds keeper stopped for us during play. The rest just kept doing what they were doing. This included mowing the fairway in front the green while we were about 90 yards out. After that, he went and started mowing tee boxes on the next hole. That was obviously an extreme but only 1 guy stopped while we were playing through the hole he was working on.

Nice Course but HOT!!!!

This is probably the 5th or 6th time I have played this course. I have always found it a moderately difficult course with some easy and challenging holes sprinkled in. For it being 102 the course was in very nice condition and the greens were excellent for it being this time of year. I will definitely play here again.
