Terrible Conditions - Overpriced
The condition of the greens, fairways and tee boxes on the front nine was the worst I've seen at this course. The worst part is they made no mention of the terrible conditions and charged us full price for the round. Many of the greens were unplayable. The back nine was in better shape, but our experience was already ruined after the front nine. If they charged $15 or $20 per round, I *might* play here again. I won't be back for a while.

I want to give the course 4 stars because the staff has done a great job maintaining the turf and not letting the greens get burnt out. I have to give it 3 though because some of the greens are half bermuda half bent and the tee boxes are still sloped. There are still some bare spots in the fairways, and #6 has a drainage problem in the fairway. This course has really improved in the past few years, so if it's been a while give them another try, but don't expect perfect conditions.
Always surprised by this place. Course was in great shape, fairways and greens in good condition. I can remember one hole (par 4, water all the way down the right hand side) where the fairway was in not great shape, but that's it. For <$45 on a weekday morning, all you can ask for. Clubhouse is a little dated, but only in there for a few minutes. Course is way better than I expect/hope for.
Above and Beyond
First let me begin by saying how great the greens rolled, phenomenal truly one of the best public courses in the area. There's a great practice area three Par 3 holes 60-90 yards. In addition the staff is very friendly and professional. Actually on this particular day as we made the turn staff members (James and Reina) were assisting a golfer who was suffering from heat exhaustion,. James who I later found out is a retired Marine CSM carried the individual into the clubhouse and began to administer first aid and monitored him until paramedics arrival.. Above and beyond, kudos Team Ratcliffe....Golfers remember to drink plenty of water, if you have a chance to play Charles T please treat yourself and go low.
A GREAT FIND
We recently visited Charlotte for a week of golf and had planned before what courses we wanted to play from looking at online reviews
1st day we played Old Sycamore - tricky course, greens were in bad shape and pace of play was very slow however if we are back in the area we will play it again.
2nd day we played Emerald Lake - nice course - woukd play it again.
3rd day we played Charles T Meyers - what a gem! The course was in great shape - well done tbe superintendent! We loved loved this course so much we went back then next day for another round! Nice to play such a fantastic public course! $35 a round - $29 for seniors over 55 best value for money EVER!
Charles T. Myers Golf Course
This was my first time playing CTM in just under 2 years. I played early on Sunday morning in hopes of getting done before the extreme heat took effect. The pro shop, starter, and snack bar staff were all very friendly and helpful. There were several coolers stationed throughout the course, which was a bonus on a day like this. I didn't use the driving range. The putting green was full of unrepaired ball marks, which seemed kind of odd. There is enough room around the clubhouse for CTM to cut a 2nd green for chipping or pitching, and maybe some thought should be given to that based on the condition of the putting green. If you could find a putt that didn't have to traverse a ball mark, it actually rolled pretty true. The course was in pretty decent shape. As with most Charlotte area courses, the Bermuda is pretty thick and there was plenty of grass on the course, save for various bare or thin spots that randomly appeared in some fairways. The greens were the same, pretty good with a thin spot here or there. They were medium speed, about what you'd expect from a Ratcliffe course. Unrepaired ball marks were a constant issue, but again, if you got a putt where you didn't have to navigate any of those, the greens rolled pretty true. The one exception is the 8th green, which it seems they are on the verge of losing. The rough is very playable. Teeboxes were all in good shape.
The layout at CTM is one of the more unique ones in the Charlotte area. It sits on top of an old landfill, so there aren't many trees on the course. It plays as 'linksy' as any course in Charlotte area. The course defends itself with large bunkers around most of the greens. You can score pretty well around CTM if your tee to green game is fairly sharp, as evidenced by my 2 birdies and 28 putts, both bests for me in quite some time.
This course came up with in my search radius and I wanted to try it. Definitely worth the money. Greens rolled well, I will be playing this course more than once a month.
MOSTLY WIDE OPEN - FAIRLY WELL KEPT COURSE
On a beautiful mid 70's day I played this course and felt it was in overall fairly good condition. Putting was different (temporary) as sand was recently added to the greens. I enjoyed playing at Charles T Myers much more than the overgrown rough negative experience which was present recently at Renaissance.
Fun Course, needs a little help
What I really liked about this course is that it was fun to play. For being a "flat" course it has a decent bit of elevation changes that are fun. I was only able to play the front 9 (twice to make my round 18) because they were airating the back 9. They said they were under construction to get an under ground self watering system, which would be great because their fairways are very dry and patchy. Their greens a rolling, but they need severe attention as they are very dry and damaged. (Lots of holes, and bumpy as a mogul course) overall it was still a fun round with some challenging pin locations, but definitely a course to play for a nice round of golf.
Nice Public course
Ok course to practice your short game doing the week.
Course Needs Attention
This was my third time playing this course. The first time the course conditions were terrible, the second time decent, and this time there was no excuse. A decent tee shot on a par 3 just 5 feet off the green should not end up an inch deep in mud when there was no recent rain. The drainage and the mowing are terrible. Likely this will be my last time at this course because it is very frustrating to have good shots turn into high scores because the course is not in passable condition. The greens were also very inconsistent. One hole would have super slow greens and the next would be super fast. Either is okay as long as it is relatively consistent. If you are looking to play for cheap this is fine, but you get what you pay for.
Not in the best shape!
Fairways were in bad shape. Looked like it had not been mowed recently. The parts that was mowed had clumps of grass everywhere. I have played this course often and it is usually in better shape than it has been in my last couple of rounds. I am really thinking of not returning. Other than a few holes....the greens were decent. It is a shame because I love the course and use to brag on it all the time.
Hopefully they will cut the rough.
Rough was so high, we spent an inordinate amount of time looking for balls just off the fairway.
OK for what I paid, but....
This course is a cow pasture...I only paid $14 but the guy next to me in my cart paid $33...he got ripped off.
This is one of the only courses that you can lose a ball on the FAIRWAY...and I use the term loosely....because the grass is so high. On any other course this fairway would be the rough...and the rough is like a wheatfield.
I was looking for corn and potatoes that might be planted there before I hit my ball.
I quit after 9 holes because we hit a backup on 10, and there were two groups in front of us...long wait, and as I said, the conditions were horrible.
I will never play there again....even for $10...
Needs work - lots of it..
Over the past 20 years I have played this course a lot. I have always liked the course. Generally it has been well kept.
Right now it is in pretty poor condition. Yes we have had a lot of rain in Charlotte this summer. But still the entire course needs mowing. The greens are pock marked. The rough is shaggy. The bunkers are washed out. Some greens have significant dead spots.
The course needs some serious attention.
Really need to take care of this place it could be a great course but has gone downhill I know we have had lots of rain but some areas are not cut at all get the least little bit out of fairway and you will lose your ball go to another course really need work on the greens as well again the grass all around this course needs cut
Greens were in great shape.
Got a cheap deal on Golf Now. Well worth it. Rough around the edges but the greens were great.
The Back 9 is as fine a 9-holes as you'll find anywhere in Charlotte
Overall, the work to improve C.T. Myers is really shining through. Although, the Front 9 is a bit ragged tee-to-green, the greens on both sides are in excellent shape. And I can't say enough about the terrific conditions on the Back 9. Friendly Staff and Rangers make for a wonderful experience. Haven't been to C.T. Myers in awhile but I will be back very soon.
Course a lot better then last year.
The course has improved greatly except for drainage on 10 , and one sand trap can't remember what hole. Other then that greens were great and fairways were great. The staff there has always been extremely nice. The prices are better then last year, because last year they were more expensive then most courses in the area. If they keep prices down I will play there a lot more.
Great Greens, fast and true
A challenging track from the tips. Greens are in super shape. Tees and fairways are in bad shape. The greens are bent grass so it will be interesting to see them in 3 months. Have been told that they hold up well. The bunkers need some sand or at least need to be raked and cleaned.
Over-all, scenic, great greens, will go back. Hope the tees and fairways grow in.
