Visible yardage markers?

The greens were as advertised, some of if not the best in the area. The pace of play was fine, although it took some time to get started due to " a couple groups of slow players" (per the starter). Of course when you're group is not striping it down the middle of every fairway and, more often than not, looking for errant shots or 3 putting the pace slows a bit. Unlike many courses there are no vertical/upright yardage markers and the fairway plates aren't always near enough to estimate distances (from the rough). The front 9 is a classic old school design (Ross) with small greens that reward good shots and repel those that aren't. There are a couple winding fairways and enough trees to block access to the green when not on the proper side and some greens are tiered and others undulating, thereby increasing the difficulty. The second 9 is not as demanding of precision off the tee or on the greens but still offers plenty of opportunity for higher than normal scoring. I recommend the course for golfers of all abilities.

Great Course

Started with friendly staff and continued with wide fairways, easy rolling greens, and a good pace of play considering they were completely booked for the day! Would definitely play this course again when visiting this area of NC.

Back 9 Greens NOT Great?

Usually the back 9 greens are fantastic but today was the first time all year the front 9 greens were in better condition than the back 9. Very curious & upsetting.

Love it

Course in great shape and the greens are ridiculously fast. Back 9 plays easier than front and that is a good thing! Great value for the $.

Top Public Course in Charlotte

Monroe CC is one of my favorite courses in the Charlotte area. Great layout and amazing greens. They must have punched the greens about 10-14 days ago, but it had little effect on the speed. Downhill down grain and that ball will roll off the green if not properly judged. Keep these course conditions up and I will continue to recommend this course and drive 40 minutes to get here. Only recommendation would be to create a tee set (white/blue mix) that plays about 6500 yards.

Quick greens

Front side is an early Donald Ross design with very small, fast, undulating greens.
Back side is different design, plays much longer than front. Good test of golf all around .

Fun course

The course was in great shape. Greens where fairly quick. If you’re walking beware it is a hike from 9 to 10. This round 9 was closed so we played 7 over from 180 yards to make up our missed par 3. Definitely will play this course a lot.

Great Course on Hot Day

The course is in excellent condition from tee to green. The greens were fast. With a tee time before 8am, I normally finish in under 4 hours. This time it took a little more than four because the group in front were spraying balls over the place. No biggie. Just noticed it more, because it was a hot day. This course is a great value considering the price and condition of other courses. I'll be back soon.

Monroe Country club

Greens in great shape. Fairly fast and narrow. True reads. Fairways are in good shape as well. Very different feel front vs back 9. Different course designers. Fun to play. Fair course.

A fun test

A test of your game from two different 9s. Front side Donald Ross, like all other Ross layouts, puts a premium on the short game. The back is more wooded, and park like layout, with more opportunities to score well. I played early, with a walker, and we played at a very enjoyable pace.

Best value in town!

Monroe CC is a gem! I try and play there every time I get out. Greens are always in great shape and for the money you just can’t beat it.
