Beautiful Course Around a Lake
This was my first time playing this course. After being in the Charlotte area for 8 months now and paying around $60 on average to play below average quality courses, this course was a pleasant surprise.
Played the day after a large storm, and the entire round was overcast with a slight mist. Course drained extremely well.
Fairways were pretty forgiving, yet still played fast. Rough wasn't too difficult in most areas. Bunkers could use some work.
The greens were phenomenal. The Bermuda greens rolled very true and players really seemed to pride themselves on this course, as there were very few pitch marks from the groups in front us. They weren't fasted greens, but undulation and subtle grain direction change made them feel quick in spots.
Its about a 40 min drive north of uptown, but definitely a nice little trip there is worth.
overall impression - I will definitely be back.
Warrior Golf Club
Warrior Golf Club has reopened after closing to redo their greens and remove trees, and the results are great! The course reopened at the beginning of August after being closed all summer. Warrior has always been a well maintained course, but the old bent grass greens just couldn't take the hot summers. They have been replaced with Champions bermuda and the new greens are excellent! The club has also removed trees on just about every hole, mostly around greens in order to improve air flow, and that has made an incredible difference as well. The course is much more playable for all ability levels and doesn't feel as claustrophobic as it did previously. They have grown the rough up to offset the tree removal on most holes, but that is fine; you can play from the rough, not so much from the trees. The fairways are phenomenal. Tee boxes are a little shaggy in some spots as they allow them to grow in, but overall in good shape. The carts are updated and have in-cart GPS. My only gripe would be that some of the cart paths need replacing.
The layout is great with five par 3's and four par 5's. Water comes into play on three or four holes. There is a decent amount of elevation change, but it is mostly subtle and not drastic. There are a few gentle dogleg holes as well.
The staff is very friendly, and the clubhouse has a grill, locker rooms, and fully stocked pro-shop.
If you've avoided playing Warrior in recent years due to the greens, do yourself a favor and give it another shot.
Not a $60.00 course
I had friends in from out of state and haven't played the Warrior yet this season. I called last week to ask about conditions and was told the course was perfect. Tee boxes are dead, fairways average and greens are ok, major work is being done around the course. I would say $40 for weekend and 25 / 29 during the week. $60 bucks for that was ridiculous. I won't be back at that price.
No grass on greens
I really enjoy playing this course but over the last 2 months the greens have burnt up and have no grass!
Warrior Golf Club
Got out to Warrior almost one year to the date since my last visit. As is usually the case, the pro shop and outside staff were very helpful and friendly. The grill was closed (I did tee off after 5:30pm on a Thursday), but they had plenty of ice in the pro-shop and coolers on the carts, which was a great help on a brutally hot day. Speaking of the carts, they have been upgraded in the last 18 months to new models that have on-board GPS yardages and electronic scoring. If GPS isn't your thing, the club also had complimentary yardage books/course guides available, a great perk in my opinion.
I'm not sure what may have changed in the 10 days since the previous review, but I found almost the exact opposite to be the case. The recent hot weather has allowed the bermuda and fescue on the tees, fairways, and rough to thrive. From tee to green, the course is in the best shape I've seen it in quite some time. The same can't be said for the greens however. The hot weather is just too much for the A-1 bent grass to handle. The course is taking every step they can to help the greens, including mini-punching and sanding the greens each Monday, but they are at the mercy of the weather. The two bunkers I was in during the round were well taken care of and had plenty of sand in them.
If the staff can keep the greens alive through the rest of the summer, I think Warrior will be in amazing shape once the Fall rolls around. I will definitely be back to check it out.
Course Quality Declining
Course quality is declining, greens were good as usual, but overall course tee to green is slipping. My knock on this course for years has been the rate they charge for this course, even at 5pm I paid 29 dollars. Rack rate runs 55-59 on weekends! I like the course layout and usually enjoy playing here, but the negatives are starting to out weigh the positives.
Disappointed with current course condition
Like the course and have played it often, but condition of fairways, rough and traps are no as good as in the past. Greens are in good shape
Not up to par
Very disappointed in condition of this beautiful golf course, no sand in traps, most tee boxes bare, fairways a lot to be desired, lack of landscaping. The only upside was that the greens putted well. I never thought I'd see this course lack so much. In years past this golf was always in great condition.. What has happen?
Warrior Golf Club
Unlike my past experience here, the course was not in very good condition. Very scenic, but not in good condition. Course played very slow in the AM.
I've recently moved to North Carolina from NJ, this is one of the first golf courses I've really enjoyed playing. The fairways are in decent condition grass is burnt out but it's still early in the season. Greens are very nice, always maintained. Overall it's a solid course. Definitely recommend it.
post easterr round
Always fast greens and friendly staff.
Carts with gps make it even more fun.
love this golf course but staff in pro shop could have been a bit more welcoming.
Great Track... Friendly Staff.
Even with a lot of players out on the course pace was good, especially for a Sunday morning.
Great layout. Some condition issues.
Aways a fun place to play. Greens smooth and consistent. Some bunker reconstruction and tree world underway that will improve play. Tees still a ongoing issue. They are often uneven, rough and it's often tough to find a suitable stance. Otherwise a great round and looking forward to summer.
Great Winter Day at Warrior
Got a great deal for an afternoon round on GolfNow. Started as a single but joined up with a group as it was slow going on the course. (MLK Day) The greens were in excellent shape for mid-January, although I wish more poeple would fix ball marks. The course was in great shape, with the notable exception of the tee boxes, which have been an issue at Warrior for some time. The course is very playable and offers challenges and opportunity for all skill levels. I played well and shot 85.
The greens were in great shape and rolling true. The only complaint was most of the bunkers were under repair and in bad shape, but overall 5 stars.
Good Putting Surfaces
They had 3 hour delay I was told, then the pair we were joined up with was told that they had a tournament, needless to say we did not start on time and also had to start the round from the back 9, I like to play this course but it seems all people aren't treated the same here
