WESTPORT GOLF   DUNDER at 12/8/06 11:31am
I just recently moved to the DENVER NC area and wondered if anyone has played the newly re-opened Westport Golf. If so what is your take on the course?
Re: one day to play   double d at 11/15/06 4:53pm
If you are on the southside of town, I would recommend Regent Park. It's right around $50 on weekdays and, although very close in proximity to Waterford and Springfield, is probably a little tougher yet nicer course. If on the northside of town, Highland Creek, Skybrook, or Verdict Ridge would be the choices.
Re: one day to play   Boona at 11/15/06 2:36pm
I played Monroe Country club a couple of weeks ago, It's in great shape, and it's well under $30. You can't go wrong
Re: one day to play   JB at 11/12/06 2:18am
Play Springfield in Fort Mill or Waterford in Rock Hill. You will not regret!!
one day to play   matt at 11/2/06 5:09am

Pineville Courses   Tedly at 10/3/06 1:00pm
Whilst searching for courses in the Pineville area I came across this site www.Pinevillegolf.com looks like any body can join them.?
Any one got any info on them or playing with them??
Waterford   MichaelS at 10/2/06 3:52pm
Played 10/1 - very good shape - they have not yet airified and wont for a few more weeks. Greens are fast and firm - did not hold well as they are truly very firm and unusually fast for a Carolina Trail Course.

I really like the layout here and the course is most always well maintained - Big hitters will be extra pleased to learn that the menancing tree on 14 (right side fairway daring you on your drive to cut around it) has been removed making this par 5 a green light for those willing to "borrow a bit" and cut the dogleg. I easily was on in 2 and I am no that big a hitter but only had 187 in after my drive..missed the eagle putt but had tap in birdie.

pace of play was slow for us being the 3rd group out and behind a threesome - no rnagers pushing folks along I consider slow 4 hrs so we came in at 3.75, but as third group and a threesome.

Re: Trip   Eric at 9/27/06 10:19pm
Regent plugged the greens about 3 weeks ago.(around beginning of Sept.) It should be good to go by now.
I played there about 1 week before the plugged them. Course is in excellent shape. You will enjoy it.

Re: trip   Doubled at 9/26/06 4:14pm
Played Verdict Ridge 9/23. Course was in excellent condition tee to green. Very challenging and the staff was outstanding. Highly recommend.
trip   Jcolley4 at 9/25/06 11:27am
Thanks everyone for the information so far. My friends and I will be down in two weeks to play Ballantyne, Regent Park, Verdict Ridge and Skybrook. Has anyone played them lately and if so, How were the conditions?

Thanks,

Charlotte Golf Links   Jamie at 9/23/06 6:18pm
Played Charlotte Golf Links today (9/23/06) and noticed an improvement from my previous round way back in February. The greens are not all the way back, but improved - the front nine greens were a little smoother than the back. The fairways were in good shape. BUT - they are aerating in a few weeks, so call ahead to check before you book anything.
Re: One Chance To Golf In Charlotte   B-Man at 9/20/06 10:16pm
Might be at the top end of that price range, but I hear Verdict Ridge fits your description (I've never played). I'd probably put Rocky River and Waterford next in line.
One Chance To Golf In Charlotte   Rob Kay at 9/20/06 10:11pm
Hey folks,

Have one more day in Charlotte (from Western Canada) and would like to play somewhere Thursday afternoon, hopefully around $40-$50, any suggestions? Looking for something kind of scenic, in great shape?
Re: night courses   T at 9/19/06 5:22pm
Try Pebble Creek -- it's on US 74, Southeast of Charlotte in the Indian Trail area (you can see the course from the highway). It's not at all fancy, and the fees are downright cheap -- but it's a fun little part 3.
night courses   richie at 9/18/06 5:36pm
just wondering if there are any par 3 night courses in charlotte the area.
Re: Fox Den CC   panthersfann55 at 9/11/06 8:31am
played in the spring, fun layout. called a few days ago learned they airified. will be playing this track next thursday will let you know what conditions are.
Fox Den CC   Fisher171 at 9/6/06 1:24pm
Anyone play this track recently? I've gone there to use their practice range on several occasions, but have not had the chance to play yet. Let's hear it! Mahalo nui!!
Re: Springfield   Fisher171 at 9/6/06 1:20pm
I played Charlotte Golf Links on 8/26 & agree w/ Springfield that most of the greens were in rough shape; a case of too much rain in combination with all the rounds that club attracts. Some of the greens looked like they had trouble recovering from the last aerification. Also, it looked as if the grounds crew didn't bother mowing grees that morning, but that's my opinion. Overall, I enjoyed the lay-out & would like ly come back...after some dry days.
Best values, good practice ranges   new to Charlotte at 9/3/06 11:19am
I'm new to the area and am hoping you all might have some recommendations as to the best places to play for cheap, and also where the best practice ranges are. I live in Fort Mill. Thanks and great site!
Re: Regent Park   Eric at 9/3/06 9:42am
I played Regent Park about 2 weeks ago. The course is in excellent shape and the greens were fast. The price is a little high but overall its in very good condition.
Springfield   JB at 8/27/06 3:29pm
Greens are in terrible shape. Give them a month to recover.
Charlotte Golf Links   Fisher171 at 8/24/06 11:37am
My buddy & I are playing Charlotte Golf Links this Sat a.m. Does anyone know what type of condition the course is in? Are the greens in decent shape? I played at Verdict Ridge last Thu (8/17) & the greens were, by far, the best I've putted on in the Charlotte area. Mahalo nui for any feedback!
Regent Park   jcolley4 at 8/21/06 2:11pm
Thanks for the information regarding Birkdale. Has anyone played Regent Park recently and if so how was the condition. It used to be one of my favorite tracks but last year it was not in good shape at all.

Thanks,

JC
Tradition Golf Club   Chipper Green at 8/18/06 9:53am
Just a minor gripe, but I played Tradition yesterday, which is usually one of my favorite courses, and they had the pin placements on the GPS system all screwed up. It wouldn't be a big deal if this were the first time, but the last several times I've been out there I've gotten bad info from the GPS. They should atleast color code the flags so you can atleast double check the GPS. I can't tell you how dissappointing it was to hit several "great shots" to front hole locations, only to get up to the green and see that I was facing a 40ft putt b/c the pin was in the back. Other than that, it was ok.
Re: courses   Chipper Green at 8/18/06 9:46am
Played Verdict Ridge last week and its in great shape. Lastminutegolfer.com offers discounted tee times for Verdict Ridge and Skybrook. Also try Golfholes.com, they have discount coupons for Verdict Ridge.
re: courses   pete at 8/16/06 5:14pm
Played Birkdale this past weekend and the greens were really a mess. We got stuck behind a real slow group and ended up spending five hours out there... won't be going back any time soon.

Played Verdict Ridge the previous weekend and enjoyed the round. Conditions are among the best I've played in the area recently. Pricey at $74 though.

Heading to Ballantyne on Saturday morning...
courses   jcolley4 at 8/14/06 2:14pm
My friends and I are making our usuall trip to the Charlotte area the 2nd week of October. If anyone knows how the conditions have been for Ballantyne, Skybrook, Verdict Ridge and Birkdale. I would really like to know. Also if anyone knows of the best site for discount coupons, It would be greatly appreciated as well.

Thanks

Re: Mallard Head   Pinger at 8/10/06 2:54pm
Yes, it is still alive and well, not to mention one of the few courses you can still play for $27 with $1 hot dogs and $1 beers at the turn. Probably one of the best kept secrets in Iredell County. Pro shop is a bit out of date, but the staff there is great. I would call the course about an 8 out of 10 for condition and playability. If you can play during the week, there is rarely more than a few other foursomes on the course.
charles t. myers   panthersfan55 at 8/9/06 3:23pm
Played this course for the first time this year. Not a great experience. All the greens on the back 9 had weeds growing on them. Along with the greens being hard as a rock putting was almost impossible. Front 9 played a little better (greens in somewhat better shape). I know new management took this course over but i would give it sometime.
Mallard Head   Chipper Green at 8/9/06 2:11pm
Does anyone know anything about a course in Mooresville called Mallard Head? I thought I knew of all the local public courses but someone mentioned this course to me and I was clueless. Playable or not? Thanks.
