Verdict Ridge always delivers. Course is in excellent condition everywhere. Great layout. Quick pace of play.
Formerly the Mooresville Municipal Golf Course (and originally a 9 hole Donald Ross design that opened in 1948), the course now known as Mooresville Golf Club completed a $5 million renovation by Kris Spence in 2016. The current course features a new layout with a links style golf experience. The upgrades include: TifEagle bermuda grass greens, 70 bunkers, 5.2 miles of concrete cart paths, a dual-sided driving range and short game practice area.
Affordable membership options start at $1000 annually. The club features a 17,000+ sq. ft. club house (opening August 2017) complete with restaurant, snack bar & grill, pro shop, outdoor seating and garage facility to house golf carts with top of the line GPS systems. Banquet space will accommodate 150+ to host special events including weddings, meetings, large tournaments and other gatherings.
I played the renovated layout for the first time in August 2017. The new bermuda greens are excellent and very challenging, though they are still young and not holding approach shots well. It pays to have some local knowledge and experience of each hole so you know the right targets to shoot for. The course is very walkable and reasonably priced for the quality of conditions and amenities. It features 5 par-5's and par-3's and plenty of scoring opportunities. There are several really unique and fun holes, including the par-4 downhill #4 that leads right into the clubhouse and parking lots -- careful you don't go long! The 9th hole par 4 is another hole that features a dramatic elevation drop then a long, tough approach over a creek to the green that's backdropped by the clubhouse. On the back nine, the long uphill par 4 17th is a brute. Overall this is a challenging course with tricky greens that is kept in great shape.
Mooresville comes in at #4 on my recently published Top 10 list for Charlotte and this round validated that ranking. The layout is fun and challenging. The greens are tough but fair and the price is right. Just a well maintained course and great bang for the buck. Today, conditions were very good. Tees and fairways are lush and full with very few issues due to the rain. The greens were not as fast as I've seen them here but they were rolling true. It was still cart path only today but I heard that should change tomorrow. The path restriction meant we couldn't use the GPS on the carts today but it's a nice feature when you can drive to your ball. It's two to a cart now and there were sand bottles on the carts. So some of the restrictions are easing up. This course has a nice practice area for your warm-up. I really like the front nine. It's easily walkable and has two reachable par 5's. The back nine is a little trickier and has three of each par 3, par 4 and par 5s, which is unique for Charlotte. The only issues today were some ground under repair on #1 where the rains have washed out some areas that just have sand right now and also around the green on #11. Those issues were isolated but I found both areas with my approaches and had to take relief. This is a great course and if you have never played it, take a trip up 77 and check it out.Read The Review
First time playing Mooresville today and I will be back. The course was in fantastic shape - tee boxes, fairways, and greens. Pace of play was right at 4 hours. The front nine is a little more aesthetically appealing to my eye, however the entire course was excellent.Read The Review
Or darn near perfect. Greens rival those at The Warrior. When they re-opened a while back they were far too fast. Coupla years of aerating and they roll as well or better than anywhere. Great layout and near perfect conditions.Read The Review
Mooresville is looking and playing great. Some of the best greens in the area, right up there with Warrior. When they were rebuilt they were too hard and fast, but have settled down. Fairways, rough, tee boxes all in excellent shape. One of the best practice ranges, chipping greens and putting greens in the Metro area.Read The Review
Mooresville is currently using 3 temporary greens and will close on June 11th for the remainder of the month to complete repairs to the course.

This is an interesting concept for a golf tournament being played on multiple courses - including Red Bridge and Pinehurst Resort - on multiple days to give participants the flexibility to pick their course and day. Check it out: THREE RIVERS LAND TRUST SWING INTO SUMMER...
