Greens need work

Enjoyed my round, but greens teetering on poor. PLAYERS, FIX YOUR DIVOTS! The TRADITION, not a greens keeper, but looks like you are over watering the greens.

Extremely Tight

Narrow fairways with dense woods or thick weeds very tight against the rough on almost every hole. Errant shots are going to be lost balls. If you're even a little wild off the tee, have lots of extra golf balls. For a muni course it's in decent shape but some the greens are very beat up. If you like narrow chutes, you'll like it. If you like courses that are more open, this is not it.

The course was very wet

Due to heavy rain, the course was very wet. The greens are in poor condition. It appears the the greens have not recovered from the last aeration or were not sanded correctly. This, along with golfers not repairing ball marks, made for puts not rolling true. Fairways were in good shape. Layout is challenging.

Greens in terrible shape

The fairways and tee boxes were in solid shape no real issues there. The edges of the course (rough, cart path, etc) and not well maintained at all.

The greens! Were awful, they said they punched them 3 weeks ago when I played and it looked like it was done 2 days ago. The greens were very furry and impossible to predict. It’s not worth anything over $30. The greens are that bad.

Staff was very nice, no problems there. Just waaayy over priced.

Give it another month

This is one of my favorite courses in Charlotte. Great layout with a good mix of challenging and easier holes. The tee boxes and fairways are in great shape, but the greens have recently been aerated, so I’d probably wait another month or so before going back. I will definitely be back though, this course is a solid reliable standby.

Great Layout. Good Condition. Average Price

This course is in great condition & the staff is proud of it. That makes a difference when you are checking into a course for the first time.
We had 4 in our group @ 9-25 range handicap & it is all you want from the white tees. We were looking for a challenge & it was perfect. We teed off @ 8:30 & greens sped up with the day to a great speed.
@ $59 on a Saturday I would expect a touch more, however given the CoronaSeason we are in right now it is understandable that amenities are not there. Pro shop is basically bare. One guy in my group was ready to spend $30-$60 on a belt but there was not one for sale. Bar at the turn is open, but beware. We went in for a 12 pack @ the turn. The server was present, packed two 6packs into bags w.ice, and then informed us that our MilllerLight purchase would total $36.00 before tip. Next time I'll smuggle a cooler Sheesh.
All in all a great course. Would recommend on occasion when you are feeling spunky.

Awesome Course

Awesome course. Not too far from Uptown and a great bang for your buck. The staff has always been friendly and courteous every time I’ve played here. The only downside is that the greens have a bunch of unfixed ball marks which slows down the greens a little. Besides that everything else is in great shape.
