Julie

We enjoyed this course, we booked through golf now there were lots of people there for a Sunday but it was well organized and it was paced very well. This I found to be a hard course, it was challenging. We will return.

Early May round

The greens were still a little shaggy on May 8th as the greenskeepers are letting roots set in and it's been so rainy that they haven't had an opportunity to roll or mow much. They could use a little more fertilizer but overall I was happy with the conditions considering the recent wetness. I shot an 81 because of a double on 17 and a bogie on 18 which I have never parred anyway, it's a funky par 5 because you have to keep your Tee shot short so you don't go in the water but then you end up with a downhill lie trying to hit your 2nd way up hill, I hate that combo! But it's a nice course....Go play it !

Fairchild Wheeler Red Course

Our foursome played the round in just under four hours. The red course has a links feel to it except for 4 holes.Even with recent rain the course was very playable and the starter greeted us in a friendly manner and instructed our group that it would be cart path only on holes 2. 11, &13 only. Otherwise, it was 90 degree rule while driving the carts to the ball.The red course has some easier holes and some challenging par 3's and par 4's. The putting surfaces continue to get better after recent airification. I think with warmer temps coming up will make the greens be in great shape. The course is ideal for those new to the game because the majority of the holes are pretty openly spaced! Our group had a drink in the Vazzi's restaurant after the round. I would say we had a fun day at the Wheel. We will play here again.

Fairchild Wheeler Red Course

Our foursome played in three and a half hours to complete 18 holes. The pace of play was great and conditions were satisfactory for this time of year. The red course has a majority of holes which are link style golf. I love the course layout which offers a variety of different holes short and long. I recommend plying this course.

Run down course filled with drunken idiots

I’ve played here probably 30 times in the past, and yesterday will be the last time. The group ahead of us was littering the course with empty fireball bottles, taking big divots on greens, taking 20 minutes on tee box, and then began trying to fight our group for pulling up too close to them on the tee box, regardless of how many times we apologized to just avoid the situation. They rammed their golf cart into ours several times, one of which was in front of staff, yet we were the group being told to “avoid any trouble”. Even after the round, these guys were waiting for us in the parking lot To cause more issues before getting in their cars completely trashed and driving home. Staff was aware of the situation, but did nothing to stop these people from physically attacking us, threatening us, and drive home extremely intoxicated. I have never experienced this at any golf course in my life before and this type of behavior is becoming more common here due to the fact that there are no rangers and staff just wants to collect paycheck doing as little work as possible. Serious golfers, just play somewhere else.

bad greens

this is an interesting course but they don't put much money into it so it is not often found in good shape. The greens are slow and bumpy they do not roll the greens, the conditions around the greens is usually spotty with grass so it is mote often you are chipping off of dirt and not grass. the sand traps are filled with water. it is a 15.00 round for 40.00 but when You dont have a lot of time
it is really a waste to go there.

Played here several times. Today, a Sunday, 12noon tee off. Nobody in front. Nobody behind.
Fairways a bit wet in spots with torrential rains yesterday. Great experience. Stocked bar and good food.
I’d say tough to walk, hilly, but great par 5s, greens and tee boxes manicured. Back soon

1st Hole #1 Handicap

Nice Challenging course. Some holes a hill is a factor is how you play. Make sure you use 1 or two extra clubs to get up the hill. Greens were slow to moderate speeds. Fairways were wide and forgiving. On many of the holes do not hit over the greens because you will end up in the woods. There were a lot of trees but not much shade.
