"Average"

I played this course on a Monday in September, it was sunny and about 70 degrees but a very strong & gusty wind, maybe 20 to 25 mph. I had never played this course before so that certainly impacted conditions of play and my experience overall. I would say, the front...

Description

This older public course in east Charlotte is straightforward and has a laid back atmosphere. Located on the former Harrisburg Road landfill, the facility bears the name of County Commissioner Charles T. Myers, who during his tenure (1969-1970), led the initiative to make the final use of this land a public golf course. The course was designed by renowned golf course architect Bill Love. It's a good course for players learning the game, especially juniors. There are a few ponds that come into play on 4 holes and plenty of bunkers too. In 2018, the course renovated their greens to MiniVerde Bermuda grass - the same grass at their sister course, the Dr. Charles Sifford Golf Course.

Notes

Home of the Impact Performance Golf Learning Center. Wide array of memberships offered, very reasonably priced. The course is managed by Ratcliffe Golf Services and is a sister course of Harry Jones (Renaissance Park), Sifford (Revolution Park) and Sunset Hills.

B-Man's Take

This course has really aged well and Ratcliffe Golf is one of the best management companies in the Charlotte area. The greens are usually very slick now that they changed over to Bermuda. The bunkers and water hazards can eat up strokes. Because of that, I think the course plays more difficult than its rating. My favorite holes are #18, a reachable par 5, and #14, a par 3 over a pond. The view from the 11th green is one of the best around town, especially when leaves change in the fall. My hell holes are usually #6, the #1 handicap par 4 with water along the right, and #8 a par 3 over a pond. The rates here are extremely reasonable and if you ever have a problem or complaint, let Del Ratcliffe and team know about it. They pride themselves on customer service and are great to work with.

    "Great course"

    First time out to Chuckie T. in about 4 years, and I wasn't disappointed. It was my first time playing their new greens and they were in phenomenal shape. Most of the rest of the course was similarly good. The back nine was nearly perfect as far as conditions go. The front 9 was very good, just not quite as nice as the back nine. Not a complaint, but just an observation. The greens rolled true and there weren't many ball marks to be found. Fairways were good with only isolated issues. Tee boxes were lush. Bunkers had a good amount of sand in them. The wide fairways and lack of rough make this a great course for all skill levels. Fairway bunkers are shallow and allow ease of escape. Greenside bunkers are much more challenging, as is the rough surrounding the greens. Pace of play was OK. Our twosome motored around the back nine (went off 10 first), but caught up to groups on #3 and it was hit and wait from that point forward. Cart fleet is showing its age, but are decent enough. Practice areas were well maintained. Staff was friendly and courteous. Course is taking COVID precautions seriously and encourages online payment and check-in.

    "Great course"

    My first time back at Charles T for 18 holes since last year's switch over to Bermuda greens. Color me impressed. The greens were great -- slick, true and consistent across all 18 holes. The rest of the course was in good shape as well but if you have not played since the new greens went in you will only be talking about the greens after playing. I really liked them, although being so slick now, there are some pin positions that should be outlawed. The front pin on #10 was diabolical. I saw 3 people in my group (myself included) putt from above the hole off the front of the green. It was comical but also not cool. The back left pin on #17 was also impossible to get close to or stop a putt coming from the right side. So either they nix those pin positions on some slopes or they've got to slow the greens down. Outside of that complaint, I'm excited about Charles T again. I've been meaning to get back and check it out and now I will be back more often. I used to consider Charles T one of the best deals in Charlotte golf and that was with bent grass greens that were sometimes slow or chewed up. Now with these awesome Bermuda greens and the same value pricing and great practice facilities, it's back in the conversation. Well done, Del Ratcliffe and team!

    "Worth playing"

    This is the first time I have played since the greens were redone. Much improved greens from when I played here over winter (they were real bad then.)Yes I did too have trouble getting out of the rough on a few holes.I have to believe that the course will only get better going forward. I hope the greens hold up over the winter. Looking forward to playing some more here.

    "Worth playing"

    Just coming out of renovation. So it's still rough. The greens have been completely redone and are going to be nice once they get really flat. We putted over some bumps and there are still areas growing in. But a great improvement. Tees have been replaced or are being replaced. You need tall tees for the new ones because the grass is tall. Again, the process is underway. Some traps have been reworked but others have no sand and are playing as ground under repair. Fairways are overall good. The rough is high and the fairways skinny, at least for the 15-18 handicappers we are. Some of our group became frustrated trying to get it out of the rough. Course is on the right path, I'll go back in a month or so and see how its coming.

    "Below average"

    I know the course is about to close but figured I would give everyone the heads up. Entire course is in great condition but the greens are 100% burned out. They charge walking rates since they are almost unplayable. If you are looking for a quick round to work on every aspect of your game except putting then it is worth it. We played the greens as an automatic 2 putt, it was like putting on a hardwood floor.

The Divide closing for greens renovation this month

By The B-Man on 8/5/20

Great news for The Divide! The course was approved for a $350k greens renovation starting this month. The greens will be sodded with Diamond Zoysia grass, the same as Eagle Chase in Marshville (and those have been good year round). The work starts next week and the course...
