I had always wanted to play this course so I grabbed a hot deal for my first time. The staff was very friendly upon my arrival and sent me on my way.

Then it got interesting. I got lost going to the first tee because it is a good 1/4-1/2 mile from the clubhouse. The signs kind of pointed you there but no true guidance. The course is in good shape, the greens are nice but the routing is peculiar. With the extra par 5's, par 3's, and distances between some holes there is not much of a flow.

Many of the greens are raised and have severe banking so if you miss on the wrong side you are in trouble. There are quite a few forced carries with challenging angles from the tees as you move farther back. They might be easier from the forward tees but I did not check that out. Basically it is a challenging course which might be kind of frustrating for a casual golfer. You need some local knowledge to do well here.

I would play this course again because I like the difficulty.

Course in fine condition, weather superb. Appx 1230 tee time, started 15 late. Marshall scolded our group for being off the 90* rule, deserved it. However, the 4some in front of us had 2 - maybe 3 open holes in front of them on back 9 - walking in woods talking on cell phone, just no concept of common courtesy or letting group play through - no marshal in sight when needed one. Finished in RECORD TIME of nearly 5.5 hours. SLOW PLAY KILLS the game. They were totally unaware and could care less, even waiting around 18th green yacking while we hit approach shots and putted out. Etiquette is a learned trait - but some pointers from the pro staff would help.

Course is in great shape. Large, undulating and fast greens. Fairways are generous but hills and doglegs make it very challenging. No two holes are alike and the setting is wooded and no traffic noise! Tee options make the course playable for all skill levels. One of the best public courses in the Charlotte area.

Have always heard great things and finally made it for my first round and I can't wait to get back for another. If you play with other first timers do yourself a favor and get a yardage book. Fun mixture of holes, 5 par 3s of varying length, 5 par 5s with some reachable in 2 and some 3 shotters. Three of the par 4s require a forced layup/target distance.

Great value of $36 for a 9:24 on a Sunday morning, not overly crowded and pace was fair.

Greens are excellent, fairways great, bunkers had consistent amount of sand and tee boxes were fine.

Definitely worth the 45 minute drive from south Charlotte.

I"d rate it 4.5. It's not perfect, but very good condition and is unique in that it has 3 par 3s, 4s and 5s per 9 holes. We had a lot of people behind us but no one in front so our pace was excellent- 4 hours for 2 people. I'd definitely go back. You would not want to walk it as there are some long trips between green and next tee (although a junior tournament was there and they were walking. But then, they are juniors!)

Both my wife and I really enjoyed this course. It was challenging, especially the greens, which were "wicked" fast and had some difficult pin placements. It would certainly help to have someone who knows the course when playing the first time. We will definitely go back.

First time at Red Bridge. A nice track just east of Charlotte - well worth the 30-minute drive. The course was in excellent condition with both the fairways and greens in awesome shape. Very enjoyable round and great value ($40) for a course of this caliber.

The layout was a bit confusing as it appears that they the hole layout has been changed since its opening. My GPS device had the holes in a different order so it took a bit of effort to sync up the GPS with the layout. Once accomplished everything was accurate. The other comment on the layout - 3 par 5s and 3 Par 3s on the front.

The holes are challenging with tight fairways and blind shots on some holes being off set with shorter distances. A premium on the ability to hit straight, not long. The greens were in great shape and fun with plenty of break on most putts. I'm sure at some point there will be more homes around the course, but right now it was nice to play a course with pretty much no homes in sight- just the natural surroundings. I will be back.

The "country club" has a stone parking lot with no handicap parking. When I arrived at the tee in time, the starter said he sent off a threesome (that I was supposed to be teamed up with) off early and I could either catch up with them, missing some holes, or wait 20 minutes for the next threesome. I waited. On the 8th hole, we were told by the marshal to stop looking for a lost ball because we were holding up play. We finished the front in just under 2 hours, and waited on almost every hole on the back nine. Where was the marshal? Course conditions were less than ideal. The greens were fast, but the surrounds, and the tee boxes, were covered with crab grass. Signage around the course was sometimes hard to follow because the signs were deteriorating. Quirky holes with forced layups

. Many better courses have better conditions, amenities, and staff, abd are better values in the area.
