Unless you're getting a really good rate, I wouldn't pay what they are asking to play there on a Saturday.

Harry L. Jones Sr. Golf Course

1525 West Tyvola Road
Charlotte, NC 28217
(704) 357-3373
Type: Public Rates: Weekday $30-$35, Weekend $35-$46
Practice Area: Driving range with grass tees, large chipping/pitching area with sand bunker, and a putting green.

Course photo Description: This public course, formerly known as Renaissance Park, is located off I-77 near the old Charlotte Coliseum site and across from the Renaissance Park athletic complex. It's also across the street from a great practice facility (Leatherman's). The layout features a wide variety of holes, several with elevated tees or greens. The back nine particularly feels like a mountain course as it winds through trees and streams.

Notes: This course is now operated by Ratcliffe Golf Services (RGS), which offers a variety of affordable membership options that include 4 other courses -- Charles T. Myers and the beginner-friendly Revolution Park (9 hole), Sunset Hills and Paradise Valley (Par 3).

B-Man's Take: I didn't play this course for several years, but recently went back (May '09). I had a few bad experiences with the conditions and hole closures here and was waiting for good feedback before I returned. It looks like Ratcliffe has gotten it mostly back in shape. The course is fun to play with all the elevation changes, especially on the back nine. It helps to know the layout because there are quite a few blind shots. The course plays long and has several tough required carries over water/marsh. One cool hole is the 220yd par 3 13th, with its elevated tee some 150 ft above the green. The toughest holes are probably the closing 3 - a 3 shot par 5 with an approach over a pond, then a sloping dogleft par 4 with the green down in a valley, and a blind tee shot par 4 with an approach guarded by another pond. In general, the conditions here (fairways, rough, greens) are just okay, but the layout is unique.
