GREAT golf spot!

First time playing based on reviews from others. It is a top notch country club feel but for half the price and its private. Range is very good and nice touch to have a fully stocked snack shop right before you tee off. People there are VERY friendly. We ate dinner after at the restaraunt and it was outstanding! I will for sure be back. The course was decent shape. Greens are very fast, does not hold water well and the mowers had just left clippings all over and we had a 1pm tee time. Overall great experiences though and will for sure be back

The best public course in Charlotte

I played this course today for the first time. The course is in fabulous condition and pace of play was great. We played in under 4 hours and never waited to hit a shot. Sand traps are in excellent condition. The greens were very good and exceptional compared to any public course I have played around Charlotte. The fairways were excellent and rough well maintained as to where it was difficult and fair. I really liked the course and have heard many times this is Charlotte’s best public course. After playing it today I understand why I hear this from many golfers. If you have not played this course and enjoy good quality golf you need to spend the time and money to play this course. Very enjoyable day!

Its ok but ive seen a lot better for cheaper price.

First off the staff was friendly upon arriving. And at the huts, and beverage carts. The layout is very fair and a true golf course ...HOWEVER..... the greens are very bumpy and the bunkers are horrible, you must chip out of the bunkers they are really just for looks and you cant play the blast shot with spin out of them MOST of them desperately need sand def werent freshly raked at all you could either putt or chip out of them. Several tee boxes are very worn and in poor shape. Fairways are great except the closer you got to the green the soggier the turf was which made chipping tough. My worst thought of this place was the workers!!!!! They refuse to respect any players around...for over 6 holes i was followed by at least 4 to 6 workers , mowers, jet dryers ect no reguard to the players what so ever. Even had a few drive and stop bout 100 yards in front of me without moving along or anything. This was extremely annoying especially with the jet dryers and several times around the greens getting blasted with dry grass and not to mention even stopping or anything to chip or putt....for the money i expected more and better conditions. But staff was great.

Course in very nice shape

The course is back to being in great condition. A few years ago it was very disappointing but now I would recommend it again. I had the 1st tee time so pace was great. But it can be VERY, VERY slow.

Not worth it

The course is not in very good condition. A lot of bare spots on the fairway. Several times I had to move my ball so I wasn't hitting off of mud. You can play courses in and around Charlotte for half the price that are nicer.
