With all the rain the course was in good condition
The greens are in great shape and don’t mind coming back
Work is paying off
I've been playing Waterford for several years now, though it had been a little while. We could see see that a lot of work was being done to improve the course since we last played, particularly the cart paths. The greens were really nice when we played on Oct. 27 and the fairways were in great shape.. Kudos to the management for the investments they have been making.
NO 100 YARD MARKERS!!!
Manager had all the 100 yard markers removed
MAKES ZERO SENSE
Well worth the money
Course was wet; but in good condition considering a lot of rain. Still a very good value.
Slow but fun
Course is in nice shape. Best I’ve seen it. Pace of play was my only complaint. 2.5 hour front nine. Seemed to get better on back nine.
Course is in great shape
No issues at all! Great layout, green grass everywhere, greens rolled true, staff extremely accommodating and our foursome played in about 3.5 hours. I hadn't played here in quite a while but it is now back on my rotation!
Waterford is a quality course.
The course is better than average. The fairways are in excellent condition as are most of the greens. There were several tee boxes that were a little ragged.
I really like the way the course played. The fairways are wide open and there is very little water that comes into play.
There is a driving range on-site as well as a putting area. A little interesting that there are no holes on the practice putting surface, they use markers with weighted bottoms that you can move around on the putting surface.
The carts were clean and worked well and there is plenty of parking.
It will be interesting to see what Mr Tepper does if anything to change or update this course.
Exceeded all our expectations
We had a very enjoyable round of golf at yesterday. Except for #10, all the tee boxes were in good shape. The shorter par 3s were heavily divoted of course, and #10 looked like it had been eroded by a flash flood from a nearby creek. Fairways were in great shape as were the sandtraps. The greens were amazing! Lightning fast and true, the slopes from Irwin's original design. We played in less than 4 hours but did not rush. Definitely on our short list of places to play in the Charlotte area!
17 Great Holes & 1 That Really STINKS
I was having such a wonderful time for my first visit to Waterford but then I arrived at #18 tee.
The smell literally made me sick!
I've been home an hour now but still the terrible sewer odor is in my nose!!!
If I ever go back, I'll just play 17 holes
Hadn't played Waterford in I can't remember how long and I can only say too bad its a 40+ minutes drive to get there otherwise it would be my go to course. Conditions were as outstanding as you can find at a public course. Well, OK, semi-private.. If you've never played WGC before the course is challenging enough but won't beat you up, i.e., water doesn't really come into play and I wasn't in a bunker all day (unlike Birkdale where I bring a beach chair along.) That's why I gave a "moderate" difficulty rating). They'v put a lot of money into it and it showed. A must play of the public courses around CLT.
I’ve played this course numerous times and this was the best shape I’ve seen it. Greens were quick and fairways were nice. Can’t wait to play here again, they’ve done a lot of work and improvements on the course and it shows
