Played here for the first time 6/19/2021. We drove an hour and half (90 miles) to play there. We had a 9:20 tee time. Course was everything we were told it would be. Course was in great condition, great greens. Lots of elevation change through out the course, $53 for Saturday morning tee time was great for being near the Charlotte area.Read The Review
Greens were still recovering from aeration and were a little slow. Course was in good shape otherwise. This course requires accurate shot making. Anything offline or off-distance is penalized. Scrambling skills are necessary. I enjoyed the course. I'll definitely be back.Read The Review
Passing along this update from a friend who played Red Bridge this week... "For those that were disappointed with the conditions at Red Bridge so far this year. The course has made major gains. Played it today the fairways and rough are all good. A few tee boxes for the whites are still a little rough but the other tees are all good. It's the same ones that normally struggle there. The greens are being top dressed every 2 weeks and the Bermuda is coming back in well. No other grasses to be found on any of them. Green collars also look good. Still a bit bumpy but no major bare spots and most greens roll fairly true. Give it another 2 weeks to a month and the greens should be really good again."Read The Review
Mooresville is in great shape right now as many local courses are hitting their prime conditions. And that goes for everything, tees, fairways, greens, bunkers. There were only a few sporadic issues with some bare, washed out areas around some of the greens (#11, #15, #18) - I suggest playing them as GUR. The greens were typical TifEagle Bermuda – fast downhill and slow, breaking more uphill. They gave me fits as I had at least 5 lipouts in 18 holes. The grain grabs the ball as your putts slow down and they break away from the hole. So not my favorite Bermuda greens, but your mileage may vary. The only other thing of note is the clearing / construction work being done around holes 6 and 8. Not sure what is being built there but it will certainly change the aesthetics of those holes 6-8. Right now it's just mounds of orange dirt. For me, the front 9 plays easier than the back, though overall this can be a tough track. The closing 3 hole stretch of 16 (short par 4 but a difficult tee shot), 17 (long par 4 with OB on both sides and a large sloped green) and 18 (long narrow par 5 guarded by OB left, hazard right and fairway bunkers in the layup zone) is one of the more difficult in town. For the money and the amenities (incl. a nice practice area and large clubhouse/restaurant), Mooresville is still one of the nicer places to play around Charlotte.Read The Review

Appears the new greens are going in at Birkdale. Walked up to practice and they said everything is dead and closed until some time in August.
