Type: Public Rates: Weekday $36-$43, Weekend $42-$49
Practice Area: This course is notorious for having a short and narrow practice range. You can really only hit wedges (120 yards or less). They have a hitting net if you need to warm up with your longer clubs before a round, but this is not the place for an all around practice session.

Course photo Description: This course -- known for years as Fox Den Country Club -- north of Charlotte off I-77 has Crenshaw bent grass greens and Bermuda fairways. It was designed by renowned architect Clyde Johnston with beautiful rolling terrain and scenic views. Stonebridge Golf Club purchased Fox Den in May of 2014 and renamed the course Larkin Golf Club. It is a well rounded course with lots of variety that will test your shot making abilities. The course length varies from 7005 yards from the gold tees down to 5300 yards from the red. The first few holes offer a parkland feel, set on mildly undulating land. The next six holes will remind you of mountain golf and the last six will make you feel like you're on a beach course.

Notes: The course winds through a nice residential community and features a two-story brick clubhouse, pool and tennis courts.

B-Man's Take: I finally played this course in December 2019. I was impressed! The bent grass greens were in great shape and rolled true -- hard to find better public greens with bent grass in Charlotte. And the layout is fantastic - great mix of challenges, with long and short holes, uphill and downhill shots, strategically placed water hazards that offer risk/reward opportunities, and reachable par 5's. The greens are mostly flat but the groundskeeper tends to hide pins near the edges. For the price, the greens conditions and the fun layout, this course would be on my regular rotation if I lived closer (it's a 45+ min drive from my place in Union Co).
