Top 3 Courses - South Charlotte-Burbs   TG at 1/18/08 8:20pm
Planning a trip down in mid April and need 3 different courses to play. We've played Regent Park and it's been in good shape/nice layout. Same for Ballantyne. but that was 4 years ago. Are both still well conditioned. Also need a recommendation for a 3rd and would like to stay south of the city. Is Emerald Lake a higher end course which is what we're looking for?

Divide/Charlotte Golf Links   Jamie at 12/20/07 10:30am
I played The Divide yesterday, and it was fairly OK. The greens are in pretty good shape, but a little inconsistent with respect to speed. The course that continues to struggle somewhat with its greens is Charlotte Golf Links. I played there two weeks ago, and about 1/3 of the greens had been re-aerated! Putting was pretty tough that day.
The Divide   Notsogood at 12/14/07 8:47pm
12/14/07 Divide is in horrible shape. Emerald Lake, Old Sycamore and Charlotte National all look like Ireland compared to the Divide. $60.00 for no yardage in the fairways; very inaccurate GPS, slow carts,leaves everywhere and poorly maintained greens and tee boxes.

I recently came across this great place to learn how to play golf. They have computers, cameras and a simulator where I played Pebble Beach. Check out the site... This place has totally helped out my game!
Re: KIS Country Club and Golf Academy   Aaron at 10/30/07 8:31pm
The KIS golf system is actually very impressive and can help golfers of all levels. I am a member and my handicap dropped 10 strokes in the first 3 months of using the clubs (low 80's). Also, I do not think they are "cheesy". I highly recommend anyone to check them out.
westport   sam simono at 10/24/07 6:47pm
Played Larkhaven and Warrior in last two weeks and found both in great shape. Thinking about going to Westport next week and wondering if anyone could give me some feedback on giving that course a try.

Re: Larkhaven   panthersfann55 at 10/18/07 12:17am
played 2 weeks ago. not a bad round for the afternoon. greens were a little slow. at least the fairways had grass. even in this drought.
Larkhaven   B-Man at 10/17/07 2:03pm
Played with someone Monday who said Larkhaven is doing better and that management seems to be making a good effort this year to get it back in shape.

Can anyone confirm or deny that report? How's Larkhaven looking these days?
Re: Golf Courses   Russell at 9/18/07 12:48pm
Make sure to call ahead for condtions. Many courses have recently aerated their greens and could make for a disappointing round.
Re: Golf Courses   golf4jf at 9/18/07 10:14am
The 3 courses I would play are, Ballantyne, Verdict Ridge and Skybrook of course Springfield and Regent park are great too.
KIS Country Club and Golf Academy   Charles at 9/16/07 5:22pm
My wife and I toured the KIS Golf in Nashville. We played a round with an employee of KIS at Cole Park on Ft. Campbell Ky. (Course is kept in excellent shape and is open to civilians)
We are still learning; but it appeared they were selling vacation ownership and giving away "cheesy" golf equipment.
We did not want to take the chance of undoing everything we have learned the past 4 years.
Golf Courses   Mark B at 9/15/07 4:58pm
I will be in Charlotte on the November 11th weekend and will have three days and would like to golf three different courses. If you only had the ability to golf three courses (public) which would you chose. Cost not a huge issue as I will only have one chance to golf these courses and do not want to miss out.

Thanks for any advice you can give me
Advice   Ryan at 9/12/07 7:58pm
Hi, I'm going to be moving to Charlotte in about a month and I'm looking to find/join a course with a decent range program and a good instructor. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks! Love the site!
conditions   golf4jf at 9/12/07 10:07am
Hey guys, Can anyone give me there opinion on the conditions of Verdict Ridge and Regent Park?

Charlotte National   panthersfann55 at 8/31/07 9:11pm
Played Charlotte National yesterday. greens are in good shape for being in a drought and paying only $30 (with discount card)this place is the best value in town. i did stop by fort mill wed and asked about the greens (since i saw all the sand) i was told they just airified and reseeded. big mistake in august. i used to work on a golf course and there is a reason most places wait until sept to do this (heat and humidity.
Fort Mill Golf Club   Bill V at 8/31/07 2:08pm
Avoid Fort Mill Golf Club due to the greens that are in horrible condition! Literally NO grass to be seen on 95% of the greens. I enjoy this course often but was very frustrated they didn't provide an "accurate" warning of the conditions.

By the way, I just discovered this site today and like the layout and the links to the discounts.
Rocky River Update   Jim C at 8/30/07 10:32pm
I played Rocky River Wednesday, August 29 and found the greens in horrible shape. I was shocked! I have always loved the greens at Rocky River. They had large areas with no grass. Some greens had been somehow plowed with cuts running the length of the green. All greens had been punched. The holes were about 50% healed over.

If you love Rocky River because of their consistant nice condition, don't play it now. You'll want a refund.
Golf/Lessons   Kathy at 8/25/07 11:45pm
I am curious about a place I just saw in the Concord Mills Mall. It looks very interesting and I would love any feed back that you could give me.It is called Kis Golf and seems to be very reasonably priced.
Re: october golf   Claude at 8/23/07 3:05pm
Springfield is a bear! One of the toughest courses in the area. Ballantyne is in great shape, not sure about the others.
october golf   golf4jf at 8/22/07 7:47pm
Hey Guys...Its getting to be that time of year again and I need your input. My buddies and I are coming to the Charlotte area from Columbus Ohio in mid October. We are playing, Regent Park, Verdict Ridge, Springfield and Ballantyne. We have played all of them before except Springfield. I would appreciate any information regarding the condition of these courses. Thx golf4jf
Re: Belmont   B-Man at 8/19/07 10:02am
Just a quick note about Pawtuckett. Afraid it closed about a year and a half ago. Sold to developers, but last I checked it was still idle and grown over. Really a shame. I used to love that course, one of the first courses I played here in Charlotte and a great layout.
Re: Belmont   Calude at 8/19/07 9:56am

I'd start with taking a look at Verdict Ridge and Skybrook Skybrook is awesome!

Pawtucket may also be a nice option for you

Green Meadows is also very close by

Hope that helps and hope you enjoy your time in Belmont and the surrounding area.

Belmont area courses?   Ron at 8/16/07 9:53am
Hello, we will be visiting family in Sept. who live in Belmont and we are looking for course recommendations. We don't want to spend a fortune but we would like to play some nice courses even if it means plying later in the day. We are also willing to drive within 30 minutes. Any recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks, Ron
Carolina Lakes   JW at 8/2/07 6:38pm
I actually stopped by the Carolina Lakes clubhouse today on a whim. The course looked pretty nice from what I could tell, and the parking lot was about 60% full at 4:00 on a HOT Thursday afternoon. SOMEBODY knows about the place, it's just not well publicized. Anyways, I stopped into the pro shop to inquire about greens fees. They told me it was "$63.13 exactly" all days, all times for non-residents of the community. Hope this helps!
