The Lakes Course is justifiably named as it has water on 16 holes. It's a challenging course with a high rating and slope for a muni course. Holes #5, 6, 10, 12 and 18 are all good, tough par 4s. It's a walker friendly course and normally in very good condition. The only condition quality challenge generally bothering both Firewheel's Lakes and Olde courses would be the condition of their sandtraps.
A nice Texas-friendly staff and reasonable pricing combined with reasonable speed of play make for an enjoyable golf day at Firewheel Lakes Course.

Another golf course I used my Avid Golfer coupon for and I am glad I did. The course has a very interesting and fun layout. The greens and fairways were in very good conditions but man the fairways are fast so take heed. The Lakes course must be the most popular of the three because it was a little busy but we did finish under 4.5 hours. A very good public course I would recommend to any golfer.

Great course - best of the Firewheel complex. Course is typically in good shape and it's not tough to get a tee time. They recently switched the nines, which I think makes for a quicker round. The front 9 has some great, challenging holes and the back 9 has some old favorites.

This is a nice course that offers some challenging shots and is consistently good to very good condition (depends on too much rain or not). Overall its a solid course with multiple tees that can accomadate any level of play. Its better than the Old course and teh design shows its a more modern layout than the old course as well. There's plenty of water to drink and enough water on the course to catch your balls as well. Stay out of teh water and the bunkers and you'll have a nice round. (that is the same at any course though).

Nice course

The Lakes was my favorite of the two original Firewheel courses. Some of the holes were redone and consolidated with the three new nines when the Bridges was built a few years ago. Lakes is aptly named, with lots of water, but it is not overly long and most of the Par 5s can be reached in two with a couple of good shots. The Par 3s can be played by normal humans without needing a wood. The course has a nice driving range and chipping green as well. The staff is very helpful and friendly and the rental clubs are pretty good (Nike Slingshot irons). Altogether, a good value for the money.
