Highland Creek sent a letter to its members this week that it is closing October 1st in an attempt to fix the greens. However, the letter did not say for certain whether the course will re-open....

Charlotte National Golf Club

Type: Semi-Private Rates: Weekday $28-$35, Weekend $35-$45
Practice Area: Great place to practice your short game. The grass tee driving range is so-so, but the putting green is huge and kept just like the course. The chipping green is also mown like a real green and offers about 40-50 yards of fairway to practice from, as well as a large sand bunker. One of my favorite places to practice.

Course photo Description: Hidden among the farms in Union County, Charlotte National winds through the woods, with no neighborhood homes to intrude on golf. A very diverse layout, with the full range of challenges: length, water, elevation, wind, and fast greens. This course is 5 minutes from my house and so it's my go to for an emergency round or practice session. The clubhouse guys are very friendly and flexible to fit you in.

B-Man's Take: Fun course, off the beaten path. Good mix of difficulty throughout the round, but the last 3 holes are brutal. This course is kept in very good shape and the greens always roll true. My favorite hole is #15, a long dogleg left par 5 with a second shot over a creek and a big tree in the middle of the second fairway. I have a few hell holes on this course, including the closing 3 holes, but the one that always seems to get me is the #1 handicap hole, the long par 4 #5, with water on both sides of the fairway.

  • 6/7/18 - Quick update from playing 9 holes yesterday - they've sprayed the greens to kill them off before the switchover to bermuda. That has made them very thin and lightning FAST! If you enjoy putting on glass or Augusta-style green speeds, go play Charlotte National this week. The greens probably have another week of playability and it was a fun challenge not to 3 or 4 putt! Also, they've mown down spots on a few holes for the temporary greens so you can sorta see how the course will play in a few weeks.
