This course is hidden among the farms in Union County. No houses or other civilization to intrude on your round. Just golf. Plays like a mountain course, with an elevated tee or green on almost every hole. The greens were redone in Diamond Zoysia grass in 2013 and are some of the best in the area.
Affordable membership plans are available.
This course is a well-kept secret since it is a good 45-60 minute drive from uptown Charlotte. It is a fun course to play with the hills and elevated tees. The zoysia greens are usually immaculate. Water comes into play on the first 3 holes and 7 of 18 overall. My favorite holes are #6 (189yd par 3 with elevated tee and pond on the right) and #13 (332yd par 4 with pond on the right). My definite hell-hole on this course is #2 - a 412yd par 4 with an elevated tee looking down on a narrow fairway with water on both sides. I would pay $5 extra to play here if I could right down par and skip this hole every time. I try to make it out to Eagle Chase a few times a year. It is affordable and kept in great shape. One note of warning, the cart paths here are notoriously bad -- just skip them when you can and drive in the grass.
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
Great Course - Great Greens - Horrendous pace of play. Skipped the last two holes in frustration.Read The Review
The major problem with this course previously was the poor conditions of the cart paths in some areas, with tree roots having raised the asphalt. I am glad to see that this has been addressed. The bad areas of cart paths have been removed and replaced by smooth packed gravel/dirt. The course is great, with Diamond Zoysia greens and no bad spots. The greens are a good challenge, with most putts having some break. The holes are unique, making the layout enjoyable to play. I saw one guy with a walking cart, but this would be a difficult course to walk due to elevation changes. The clubhouse is basic with no frills. I highly recommend this course.Read The Review
Greens were fa-a-a-st! When I play during the warmer months, the greens are usually lush and play like thick carpet. At this time of year, they are dormant and slick. Downhill putts were treacherous! The course has dried out so no issues in the fairways or bunkers. $40 for a holiday Monday was a great deal.Read The Review
First time playing here since August 2019 and the course did not disappoint. Greens were perfect, smooth and fast. Fairways were dormant but in good/great shape. First time in forever I didn't land in a bunker but they looked to be in great shape. I really love this course just wished it was closer , it was almost and hour drive from Ft Mill. My only issue today was no one except for me and my neighbor wore masks in the pro shop.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.
