Slow pace of play today
Got behind a six some on #12... took 45 min to play 12 and 13. Just skipped 14.... played last 4 holes in less than hour because there was no one on those holes.
Got rained out. Do do get back my deposit
Got rained out and do not get back GolfNow desposit so it wasn’t good.
I normally don’t like playing this course because the clubhouse staff is not helpful however the young lady today was a delightful surprise. I will try this place again in the near future hopefully she’ll rub off on the rest of them
Sand Finally some Sand!
I have played this course many many times over the last four years and the constant complaint was that the bunkers are either flooded or they are as hard as concrete. Last Sunday I was out there and much to my surprise there were huge piles of sand in the parking lot and I was told that all the bunkers on the old course will be dug up a drain system put in and then fresh sand put back into the traps.
Does Sgt. Schultz now work at Firewheel? “I see nothing.”
The Olde course is now more fun for playing a relaxing round because tee and approach shots are much less demanding since they pruned back some of the trees that made tee and approach shots narrow. It is now a basic “olde” time WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) layout. The rolling greens are demand formidable putting skills to get your par now that you can hit the green in regulation.
Firewheel still has a huge issue that has been there since I first played it 20 years ago. A local crowd of “good olde boys” schedule blocks of adjacent tee times to play multi-group matches that slow down play. For example, on Thursday August 21, our tee time was right behind such a group. Our twosome sat patiently behind them on every tee box and in every fairway knowing the last group would not let us through since they wanted to be together. I am OK with that.
At the turn, the front group delayed teeing off, so they could compare scores and bet outcomes. I am OK with that.
But the front group was now at least 3 holes behind – you can see 10, 11 and 12 for threw 10 tee – and they did not eve offer to let us go through. So, we went to the 16 tee nearby and played 16, 17 and 18 and came back to 10. The lead group was now in the middle of 11 fairway. We had played 3 holes to their 1 ½.
The foursome on 10 tee told us they had been told to do the same thing by another group that was also being held up and they did.
We joined up with another twosome and played 10 an 11 before we caught up with the herd on 12 box. Yep, our foursome played two holes while they played one.
The math said it would take us twice as long to play 12, 13, 14, and 15 behind these groups which would put our round at OVER 5 hours. So, we left.
Course management knows about all of this and lets it go on anyway. They booked the tee times. There was no marshal. They could observe firsthand from the windows how long it took then to get to 9. The could see the hold up on 10 box.
Nice Layout, Poor Conditions
It always is a hit or miss on this course for conditions of the greens. They were slow and uneven in my round. I expected dry and hard fairways and was not disappointed. The conditions do keep the price and crowds down. We played in under 3 hrs.
Old course of course
All was great. Good
Time. Need a cart girl and a more upscale
Snack and lunch area
With higher quality food choices. Has potential!
Great Day For Golf
Course was in great shape!! Greens were very consistent. Course layout makes you think about your play & not just bomb driver on every hole.
Overall course was in good shape. All sand traps are terrible and basically unplayable. Greens are slow and staff was not very friendly. Course was very crowded but pace of play was good.
Course needs a little work, bunkers not great, fairways ok (not as good as Lakes) but pace of play was great for a Saturday afternoon. Overall it's a great deal for the money
Nice old track
Not the most challenging track in DFW, but has the lines of the older tree-lined holes, and some very quick-rolling and sloped greens. There were some areas around the course (esp. tee boxes) that could use some extra TLC from the greens keepers; i.e., hard pack & bald areas, etc.. But I like the design of the layout, and the greens will challenge you. For the $$, a very good value, even for a Muni track.
THE OLD COURSE not very good
This course needs watering. It was dry even in the fairways. Plenty of tee boxes had large patches of dirt. More than a few of the greens had barren or diseased areas patched up with sand which made them inconsistent. At this time of the year this course should be in better shape.
I really like the multi-course option
Great value for the price using GolfNow!!!. There’s multiple courses to play so you have a variety
