I loved this course. My only gripe would be that the greens were a little too slow and the sand traps were not the best. However, I do believe that these may have been due to the rain the day before. I drove 1:45 to get there and will definitely be willing to make that drive again.

Great course and each year I make it a point to get down to Edgewater from Charlotte to play a round. Bunkers do need work but from what I see and read on other reviews it looks as if this will be addressed. Staff from the Club house to the maintenance crew. I look forward to playing an other round soon.

This is one of the best layouts in the area, public or private and the course is in excellent shape. During three recent rounds, I played the ball down and had excellent lies in the fairway. Green fees are very reasonable and it is just a fun course to play. Several of the bunkers could use a bit more sand and some of them had a few rocks in them, but otherwise this place is a gem. More golfers should make the trip to Edgewater!

The course was lush green everywhere. Well maintained and the right amount of difficulty to make it an awesome course to play and enjoy! The price for the round was far below what you would expect to pay for such an awesome course. After playing the course and interacting with the staff I thought I should have paid at least $120.00 for the round..

I would defiantly recommend the course to anyone!

Attentive knowledgeable staff, Beautifully Awesome Course, and you can't beat the price!

I was lucky enough to play Edgewood while visiting family over the 4th of July holiday. I had such a great experience, I cannot wait to return. The course was challenging, but fair and in impeccable condition. The staff was absolutely first rate. Jodi in the golf shop was so friendly and welcoming. Overall, a fantastic place to play, and I highly recommend to anyone who can get there.

This course is a great and fun layout. However the bunkers are horrible (masonry sand and stones). Bunkers desperately need to be replaced. Some of the fairway have weeds and the grass in thin. Spray for weeds and use some fertilizer. Greens are good but they putt way to slow. Cut your greens and roll them.

This course has the potential to be an awesome course but not if you don't put some money back into it.

I have been playing Edgewater since it opened and it continues to improve with each visit. The course is always well maintained and bunkers are the only area that needs improvement. The bent greens are generally slick and fun to play.The staff both inside and out try to make each visit memorable. I make it a point to recommend Edgewater to anyone that comes into my shop.

Edgewater used to be one of my favorite courses in the area. I used to brag about this course, but this year has seen some negative changes.

While the layout is still one of the best around, the condition of the sand traps is pathetic. Most are simply hard packed clay and dirt.

The greens, fairways and tee boxes are decent, although not as well manicured as in past years. They have also decided to cut costs by eliminating the bottled water that was featured around the course. Instead of cutting costs there, eliminate the guys putting clubs in the cart.

Still a nice course, but not as nice as it once was.

I play this course the most of any I play. The staff is always very friendly and the course is phenomenal. Only a few details they need to address. Some of the bunkers are unplayable. I feel they need sand on the carts to fill in divots on fairways. I mentioned it one time and they said it was being addressed. Just a personal thought, but I felt the clubhouse should have been built across the street from where it is now. Would make making the turn a little quicker. Pace of play might be just a little quicker. There is plenty of room across the street......not sure if it is theirs or not. Just an opinion. GREAT COURSE!!!

Tee box, fairways and greens were all in good shape. The sand traps on the other hand remain so bad there is little point of trying to even play out of them. Construction sand and red clay with animal burrows is so out of character with the rest of the course. Suggestion : change half the bunkers to grass bunkers to reduce the # of sand bunkers that need to be maintained.

First time playing, a bit of a drive from Charlotte, about an hour but well worth it. Staff very friendly, able to tee off early to get ahead of a foursome. Course wet after all the rain but in great shape. Challenging from back tees but a lot of fun with different elevations and some water in play. Will definitely play again.
