Challenging course

Strong course. Lot of force carries. Still early in the seaso so fairways and greens need work. It’s a long course too. It’s a popular course so be prepared to stack up from time to time.

Perfect weather
Used cart

Early Spring Golf

Course was pretty wet with cart path only which was needed. Greens had not been aerated yet so they were hard and fast. There was no water in the coolers nor were the fountains re-installed. Should have had something operating.

Hopefully, golfers will not make a mess of the course before it dries out because much damage could occur.

Nothing Not To Love at Olde Sycamore

Took advantage of a two day break in the bad weather. The course was still a bit wet from weeks of rain and was cart path only, but it was definitely playable. Not surprisingly, the forecast for intermittent showers kept all but the hard core golfers away and, when the heavens failed to open, I was able to play a 3 hour round as a result. The greens are in great condition and, when the weather improves, it will again be one of the best tracks in the Charlotte area. I will be coming back again and again.

Olde Sycamore course review

It was a rainy evening through the morning and the course drained well. Greens and fairways were in good shape. Allie our bartender and secret was on point, even staying after closing time to accommodate my group. All and all it was a great cost for a great course and the Hot Deal made it will worth the play.

Nice course,great greens

I like this course but find some holes a little too challenging for my level of play. They speed of play was quite slow with waits on tees and on fairways but there had been a frost delay. The greens were in great shape but course still a little too wet...not their fault as you can't help nature!

Course is in great condition for January

I have been to a couple of courses in the Charlotte area over the last couple of weeks and this one is playing better than the others.

Great round for the price.

Good Layout With Challenging Green Complexes

Above-average layout with plenty of unique holes but challenging greens and lots of downhill lies approaching elevated greens that make approaches very difficult, especially from distance. The greens were also very tough with tons of undulation that made some holes unnecessarily hard. Nice clubhouse, good routing on both nines back to the clubhouse to end. Pretty nice clubhouse, range, and putting green.

OVERALL: 6.5/10

Decent place for the money

I’ve played here a few times, and it is always pretty enjoyable. We played as a twosome, and a couple groups of four happily let us play through, which kept our round under 4 hours.
Greens were a bit spotty in places, fairways were solid, and the rough was late summer Bermuda yuck, as it should be this time of year in the Carolinas.
Never been a huge fan of the layout, far too much placement golf ( hit the driver 4 times all day), but the conditions are solid, and the clubhouse amenities are first rate. Good value for the money, and a fun round for the average golfer, I’m sure.

Typically Olde Sycamore course conditions are excellent, but this week the greens are in poor shape. When I see greens in this condition, I suggest Mini Verde. The rest of the course was in excellent shape.

Tournaments..

Not just this course but HATE IT when they don't notify any sort of event that is happening at the course. First few holes were fine but starting on 3rd hole, minimum waiting time was 10-15 minutes in the cart at the tee box. No ranger was to be found to keep the pace moving whatsoever. Normally a great course with good green condition but we just couldn't wait all the time so just left after 9 holes.

CALL FIRST

I booked this course like I have always done before. However, when I arrived at the course they were hosting a tournament. I assumed that they would be going out after my tee time. This was not the case they were going out fifteen minutes before me. I checked in and the guy told me I couldn’t go out early and that I should have called before I came. This was the first time I have ever heard this or experienced through the booking process. So my group went out as scheduled. It ended up just like I imagined. It took 3 hours for 10 holes. The group ahead of us was behind a hole and a half. A twosome behind us jumped the foursome. By this time the pace of play was so bad that I ended my round early. I didn’t even get a chance to mention how terrible the greens were and the inability to find a clear path to the hole. I have played Olde Sycamore twice in six months and the greens were the same. I would not recommend but if you do book here make sure you call first.

A great course but with some bad greens!

I love this course. I have played it many times. The layout is great. The course is normally in excellent condition.

However, I found the greens today to be in very bad shape. I attribute this to the summer weather that we have had. I do not know if they will recover this season. But, I have high expectations that the greens will be back in their normal condition next season. The rest of the course was in very good shape!

For some reason the course did not have many players today. So, the pace of play was exceptional. That was a pleasant surprise.

While slightly disappointed in the greens today, there is no doubt that I will play this course again soon.
