Skybrook really tests your game. I’m a 12-13 handicap and the greens were good, some bad spots but overall the speed was good. Not too fast or too slow, I made some great putts! They need to work on the fairways several wet areas and dirt spots on many. Look forward to playing it again in a few weeks and break 80. AB

It was a great day to play, but the course needed work. Doesn't drain well, and sand traps still had sand piled up in them waiting to be spread. Greens were incredibly inconsistent, but had been aerated in the last month or so. All in all, it didn't look like the rain handled the rain well. Still soggy, 2 days after the rain, lots of dead spots in the fairways. Still, layout is nice, challenging course, and staff was great.

The course is in pretty good conditions even though there were 2-3 holes were you could tell they were perhaps making new bunkers (plain dirt), which it did not disturb our round since no machinery nor workers were working at those areas.

Before booking I asked if the course was in good conditions and if it was recently aerated, to which they said greens were aerated in early March. In my opinion the greens were done more like towards the end of March. It was not bad, but they had certainly not recovered completely.

Fairways were starting to green up.

Great course great conditions but when we got there it was cart path only and I had a gentleman that was 74 years old we had to quit playing after like 8 holes. When I told the Pro Shop that we had to leave as soon as I said I booked it through GolfNow he was like oh well I kind of expected maybe a rain check I mean I didn't know the course was going to be cart path only the gentleman was 74 years old and anybody knows if you ever played at Skybrook you can't park anywhere near your ball if you're in the Fairway

My son and I enjoyed the round there. We are around 12 and 18 handicaps, played from the blue tee boxes. The fairways are not as narrow; the rough are as challenging, somehow penalizing for getting there; the greens and bunkers are OK; the pace are good.

There was a time in the not to distant past that this course was a disaster. I’m glad to say that it is definitely on the mend. Greens are in good shape and are very soft. Fairways look great and the layout has always been good. If haven’t played here in a while, you should give another chance.

I have played Skybrook no less than probably 50 times. The course has been in great shape the past 2 times. Fairways are immaculate and greens are mostly great, with only a select few bad spots. Tee boxes have been maintained well and it is obvious that the folks at Skybrook have taken an active attempt at the upkeep of the course. Very satisfied.

As far as public courses go; this layout is second to few or none in the area. Elevation changes, scoreable holes, tough holes, great par 3's, the total package. The amount of progress they have made as far as the conditioning of the course in the last 18 months is remarkable. The bunkers are a work in progress; but the maintenance staff is working hard on fixing them one by one. The greens roll good for bent grass in this warm climate I just wish people would fix their ball marks!!! I try to fix 3-4 every hole due to others carelessness. Aside from the golf; the staff in the pro shop and bar/ grill area is second to none. Mike and Tim in the pro shop go above and beyond to ensure the best possible experience and the bartenders are always on point and super friendly. I definitely recommend this course and if you've been turned off by the conditioning from 2012-2015 I'd say give it another shot; it's improving everyday. Keep up the good work guys!!!

Layout has always been one of the better layouts in the Charlotte area but the greens and general course conditions around the edges is not what it once was. Greens were bumpy with various grasses growing in the greens.

Looks like this course is trying to get back to what it once was 12 or so years ago. Skybrook is a nice layout with great potential, but still needs a little work in some areas. The biggest issues were the fairway and greenside bunkers. Every bunker on this course was either filled with water or totally washed out. Correcting this issue would make the course ten times more aesthetically pleasing and more playable. The greens at Skybrook were aerated on 9/5 but they were still okay considering. In another week or so they should be alright, other than a few bare spots here and there on a few greens. These spots aren't horrible and are typical on bent grass greens this late in the summer due to heat stress. The tee boxes and fairways were in good/great shape and the head pro and his staff were very friendly and hospitable. On a scale of 1-10, I would score Skybrook 6.5 right now with potential to be a few points higher very soon. I'll definitely be playing here again, and I hope to continue to see work being put into this course. Skybrook is a very good course and it looks to be making a solid comback.

First time playing in couple weeks, for the most part the course is in great shape. The only exception would be the bunkers. Most of them need more sand added and some had weeds growing in them, most of them were hard packed and pretty much unplayable. Some even had standing water and we really haven't had that much rain in over a week.

The course is in really nice condition. The layout is great. There was a little brown patch creeping in on one of the greens, but for the most part they roll great. They biggest problem with the greens around here is people not fixing their ball marks.
