Fantastic Golf Course, Mar 28, 2011
|The North course is a Fantastic golf that I play monthly. Unfortunately, most of you reading this review will never get the chance to play this golf course. It is one of the most exclusive golf clubs in the country. Unless you know somebody like me you will step foot on the course. You can see it as you drive by or you can play the public course that borders it (I hope they put a wall up) bit most people reading this will just never play the course. So the beat way to put it is to say Firestone is a golfing Mecca for the true golfer and I love every moment that I am blessed to be there.|
