This is the third tim playing this course and it is more enjoyable than the first two. The greens were in great shape as well as the fairways. Definitely worth the trip.

Have played Lakes twice now. Very pleased and will play again.

Fairways = perfect, bermuda greens running about 9 (management should run them a little faster - bermuda can take it.) Views are great, lots of ponds, nice cool breeze in 100 degree day.

There are lots, and i mean LOTS of blind hazards. More than you can guess. The first time you play, go with an experienced local or take the time to drive ahead 150 yards before your shot, on about 8 holes. I hit 3 "perfect" drives that ended in water, simpky because i didn't know it was there & it's invisible.

Definately going back.

The Firewheel Lakes course is one of the best municipal courses in the metroplex. It is a challenging, fun, well maintained course. The greens were rolling good, great pace of play, and a good price with GolfNow.

Great golf and with the price. Greens are pretty nice and the fairways are in good shape. One of my favorite courses when I don’t find the many watering holes.

We played The Lakes course at Firewheel on Sun 5/27/2018. It was hot, but we had a great time. Despite the heat the course is green all around. Greens were a little slow but very playable. For the price I think Firewheel is the best value in north dallas.

The Lakes Course at Firewheel has been a hidden gem for several years to me and my golf crew. This year we notice more than a few patchy fairways and really scalped tee boxes. If they won’t keep it up, then come down on the price and it will be worth the buy. Club house is adequate and the staff is friendly. Pace of play is decent. They could improve on not stacking groups so close together.
