Front 9 Only

I was very upset not being able to play the back 9
The back 9 at Monroe is my favorite nine in NC
The front 9 is my least favorite in all of NC
Instead of playing the front 9 twice, I left without being given a partial refund which I requested

Great greens, great value!

The only thing this course needs is some green grass and it’s coming soon! Greens are slick and awesome to putt on. Some pins were in tight spots which made putting very interesting. Pro shop was very accommodating and I can’t wait to come back soon!

Challenging Course

The fastest greens I have ever played on. Course was in pretty good shape for this time of year. The greens rolled great but were extremely fast. If you miss the greens In the wrong area you will be punished. The only down side was the 5 minute drive to the driving range via golf cart. Allow ample time to get warmed up before your round. Would highly recommend playing the course for a great challenge.

One of Charlotte’s Best

The greens were moderate speed and after lots of rain the course was fairly dry. The toughest hole is #3 par 4, use your go to safe shot to stay if fairway and avoid the out of bounds markers on right side cart path. Hole #12 par 5 will get you a birdie.

Fast greens, fun layout....

Greens are very fast and in good condition. Fairways are decent for this time of year but the rough around the greens could use some work. One of my more favorite courses to play around Charlotte.

Great golf course!

I’ve been regularly playing at Monroe Country Club for several years. Great golf course, friendly staff and probably has the best golf instructor in the Carolinas!

Course was a little wet because of all the rain this winter. Greens are one of the best in the Charlotte area. I will be going back.

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 .
