Should be better next time

Nice layout keeps your mind in the game. Biggest problem was playing first time, yardage book is definitely needed. On doglegs and approaches to blind greens not knowing your yardage or target makes it tough. Will do better next time. Will be back.

The Coarse is is good shape.

I meet a buddy of mine and play here about twice a year. The coarse is in good shape, the greens are putting true, and we had a great time. The course was crowded, but the pace of play was good. The layout is challenging, but not overly difficult. We like playing here.

Great course to play

The only complaint I had was paying $5.00 for a hot dog that wasn't very good. Avoid the kitchen at all costs, pun fully intended.

Great course terrible staff

Me and my buddy have played golf every weekend at different courses around Charlotte for the last two years. On this particular weekend, we decided to try out a new one a little further out. Olde Sycamore. The course looked great online and the price point was reasonable, so we decided to check it out and bring our wives along with us to enjoy the day. The course is great, and one of the better ones we’ve played around the city...The staff however, were absolutely terrible. Very pretentious with a lack of hospitality. This is coming from a guy that’s played at some of the more private clubs in the country. I have never had such a dismissive or unfriendly staff at a course that is supposedly one of the best in the area. Now, for context, Mecklenburg county ordinance calls for only one patron per cart during this time (COVID). Even though we prebooked, the exact details pertaining to this were not communicated at any time. When asking about riding together (again husbands and wives), we were scoffed at by the staff member at the pro ship that proceeded to radio out in order to ensure that only one of us would have a cart while the “girlfriend or whatever” with him walked and did not get a cart. We even offered to pay for additional carts before setting off. The course starter told us to take it up with the clubhouse, but also told us that WE would be delaying the lineup were we to do this. When I frankly told the starter that we wouldn’t be having this issue if their staff had better communication and service, he just shrugged. Not so much as an apology. Only a profound attitude of “we don’t need you to play here and we couldn’t care less what you have to say about it.” Unfortunate that this was the case, because the course is beautiful and fun to play. My only feedback would be to get rid of the dead weight...for starters whoever the guy is that’s dipping at the pro shop counter. Take that outside (or at least keep it under the counter while your servicing someone - don’t need to see your dribble). Secondly, train the rest of your staff to have some etiquette, greet patrons with a smile and make them feel welcomed. Cut the pretentiousness. You’re not Quail Hollow. You take care of that and I’d be a regular. Until then, I’ll be taking my weekly business where it’s appreciated.

Wet weather

Have played this course many times. Unfortunately due to rain the night before and a more than average rainfall recently the there wasn't a dry place on the course. Didn't mind the cart path only. Had a real hard time finding a dry place to lift and clean the ball. Always enjoy playing here. Can't control the weather though. My overall rating is strictly based on the wet course conditions.

Course Sucks

Greens, sand traps, fairways in terrible shape. Allow 5 -some if they are members even though the course is crowded, which backed up the whole course. Not worth the $ paid for the condition it is in. Mud everywhere.

Not playable

Place is soaked, should not be open. Gentlemen in pro shop had zero personality.
This course used to be top notch when I first started playing there in 2003, But they let this course go along time ago. It's worth $20-$25 tops
