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.
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
Nice course, like the greens. But pace of play was initially abysmal. I think it was more group(s) we were stuck behind. Group of 3 in front to over 40 mins to get to third tee, just pick up! Then they let us play through and played next 2 holes at fast pace to only run into next group who was equally slow. So, to play front 9 took us 3 hours. Fortunately, we passed that group on 9/10 and finished back in 90 mins. That pace of play ruins the experience. Also, 90 degree rule --- the cart paths are back breakers :-) But, it is not at all close to me and I like Edgewater, Springfield much better.Read The Review
Eagle Chase almost never disappoints. Greens were in fabulous shape, rolling well. Tees/fairways all good. A few bunkers had standing water, but with lift/clean/place were not a problem. $39 for a Sunday 12:50 tee time was a deal (compare to $59 at Birkdale on Saturday). The ranger was on the course and checked in with us a few times, letting us know a slow group in front of us was "on the clock". He swung by on the back 9 and in the parking lot (!?) to make sure we had a good round. Maybe he liked us? LOL. All in all, just a great track at a great price with great service. I'll give my usual caveat advice to avoid the cart paths.Read The Review
This was my first time out at Eagle Chase, and I was very impressed. Course lived up to the reviews I have read and was in fantastic shape. Greens rolled smooth and true, and I loved the layout that almost gives you a mountain course feel. Stretch of holes 11-13 on the back nine was the highlight of the course for me. A bit of a drive to get out there, but I will surely be back for a value you can't beat in the Charlotte area.Read The Review

For those that may have missed the news last month, The Golf Club at Ballantyne closes for good today. I really hate to see it go and have no idea how they will manage to find comparable golf for their guests to enjoy while staying the hotel. I will always have a plaque...
