One spring afternoon, a group of Garland city planners visited what was then overgrown farmland in north Garland. They had an eye toward spurring development and wanted this little-used part developed more so it could serve its citizens well as other parts did for decades before them. The scenic beauty of Texas Firewheels is something that cannot be seen anywhere else in America. The fields are covered with bright pink and wild yellow flowers that give their name to this large complex golf course, making it one of the third-largest clubs across our great nation.
The story of how a small town on the east coast became home to two world-class golf courses is interesting. The first course opened in 1983, and it proved so successful that they built another one just down Highway 17 from where it stands now. And as if this wasn’t enough already – both these unique venues stand testament today not only for their beauty but also because they provide employment opportunities right here locally to
The Bridges Course, part of the Firewheel Golf Park, is a premier public course that has been around for more than 15 years. It’s Firewheel Courses’ crown jewel, with bent grass greens and 419 Bermuda tees and fairways on site. You’ll also find 35 station practice ranges throughout this 27 hole wonder of an area; it doesn’t get any better than playing right next door from home plate (or wherever your backyard is). The new Firewheel courses are a must for anyone looking to get away from it all. The Bridges Course, with its twenty-seven holes of championship golf and immaculate bent grass greens, will provide you months worth of play.
The new Champion Nine golf clubs have been released, and they each come in three different lengths. The 3474-yard model is played from the back tees, while 2614 yards make up its front side; these numbers equal 72 for a regulation course of play on any given day, with an average golfer’s putting green speed being slower than what you’ll see when playing signature or executive style courses which usually run about 5 to 10 mph less per hole due mainly because those layouts typically don’t require as much strategy during your swing – especially off the tee where distance shots often.
The Firewheel Golf Park has been a vital component in the growth and revitalization of North Garland, helping to attract housing developments like The Town Center, where residents can enjoy shopping at some famous restaurants or take advantage of other amenities on site.
