Great shape, pace of play not so great

The course was in great shape, but pace of play was a definite problem. There was no starter out there in the afternoon to space the groups out. When my playing partner (whom I did not know) complained about the wait times on the tee boxes, he was just told that it was a public golf course and it was a Friday afternoon as if there was nothing they could do. Had the groups in front of us been told that they needed to play smart cart golf then things could have moved along better. Would still play there again though. Great design and everything was in great shape.

The Tradition 7-25

I play here a lot. The turf here is in great shape, tees and fairways are very healthy. Bunkers are in decent shape. Over the past month the greens have been hurt by the heat. There are some bare spots on the greens. That being said, they still roll ok and by no means is the course unplayable. If you want perfect greens though I would suggest playing somewhere else.

Morning After the Rain

We played the morning after it rained all night. Course was a little soggy in places which was to be expected. They were also mowing and some of the grass clippings clumped together in fairways, but didn't significantly impact play. The course was in pretty good shape, not the best in charlotte but way better than this course was a few years ago. Give it a chance again. Greens in great shape, fairways and rough were mostly good as well. Some areas were a little dicey off the main playing areas, but as long as you hit it straight, you won't have any problems.

Great course

Course was not too difficult and well designed. Fairways and greens were in great shape and the pace of play was perfect. Cannot really complain about anything. I will definitely go back.

Expected More

Not a bad track, but expected more after reading the reviews. They had groups starting on the back 9, which is always cause for concern when making the turn (sure enough we had a group jump in front of us). The greens were slower than most other courses in the area, but were in pretty good shape. There are some good holes where water comes into play, We jumped on the 3:30 "hot deal", and still payed a little more than I would've liked for what the course was worth. All-in-all, we we're satisfied with playing our second 18 of the day here.

Solid course. Good value. Greens are very well kept. A bit slower than I'm used to but seem to be true.

Nice course

Son and I were looking for a course we have not played before. Good course with a nice layout. Greens in good shape, a few thin spots as they were filling in. Always enjoy a course where primarily each hole is separated and surrounded by tree foliage as opposed to a link style course. A great value for $27

Love the course

Great course. Love to play it. Only caveat is no handicapped flag and tough terrain.
Had to skip 2 holes due to my physical limitations.

Needs some work

Played 4/1. The greens had been punched recently, that being said the greens were still in less than great shape. Fairways were decent for this early in the year. There are a majority of tee boxes that had very little grass on them. I might play this course again during the summer.

Great layout

Enjoy the course and the staff is very friendly, unfortunately they had just punched the greens so putting was not the best. Although it gave me a good excuse.

Not acceptable!

I have played the Tradition since it opened here in Charlotte back in the 90s. It is a fine layout and all the peripherals - pro shop, staff, range, etc. - are fine. But it is a shame to see the course with greens in such dismal shape.
There is less 'broccoli' in the produce department of the local grocery chain than there is on these greens.
One can understand if limited resources are not spent on fairways, mulch and other items. But if you are going to run a golf course, you should make sure the greens are not the worst aspect of the course.
Fix it or forget it!

Slow and unfriendly starter

When I signed up to play, there were plenty of tee times before and after my time according to the app. Never saw ranger to assist with pace of play.. Made the turn and found there was foursome just teeing off, foursome waiting, twosome after them, then or group. We waited for 20+ minutes to tee off again, then waited on every shot the after. Ended up walking off the course after passing 12 holes.

Greens are bad

Was told that the greens had been airated but that not so. The greens have a ton of bald spots and makes it almost impossible to putt. They have not been mowed and a putt it like a plinko ball it bounces everywhere. Fairways were in great shape though. This course is not worth the $37 they charge. $20 at most.
