|Charlotte Golf Links||Jamie at 8/12/05 7:06am|
|Played on 8/6, and greens were having problems. Three were unplayable, and the other fifteen were a mixture of fair to poor. Very frustrating...particularly since the folks in the clubhouse never said anything about it when I made the tee time. A few minor glitches, well OK, I can understand not saying anything. But when most of the greens are trashed? That's what actually bothers me more than the lousy greens....it's called the "bait and switch" technique. I should not have to go through a phone interview with the greenskeeper to learn about major course issues!|
|Renaissance park||Kevin at 7/25/05 2:52pm|
|Has anyone played this lately? Haven't played it in a LONG time and wondered what kind of condition it was in.
|Re: More reviews||Jamie at 7/22/05 12:38pm|
|To Hans, The Warrior is a good course. I played it earlier this week. Well laid out, good variety of holes, well manicured. The play was a little slow, but that may be because it's popular in that area. The greens, although very soft and spongy, were in good condition. It's worth a look.|
|Re: club fitting etc||Jim C. at 7/22/05 7:42am|
|John Gamble and Mike Kurilko at Carolina Golf Manufacturing are the best. Their shop is located on Central Ave. The offer club fitting and repairs at a very reasonable price plus you'll get a few pointers along the way.|
|club fitting etc||Jmunn at 7/21/05 2:26pm|
Just bought a new Ping driver and it has too long shaft for me (Im 5'7) Looking for a good place to get the shaft and my Nike CPR irons fit for me?? any recommendations? Oh, and any interest in a barely used Nicklaus 430-S Driver out there ;) thanks, Jeff

|Re: course off 485||Tree at 7/13/05 3:38pm|
|It's called the Divide and it's part of Carolina Trail.|
|Charlotte Golf Links||Scott Ajello at 7/9/05 9:32pm|
|I really enjoy this course. It is in great shape. Though short it makes you pay if you try to stripe it and miss.
The Course is in great shape, the staff is a pleasure and it is a real great price.
Thanks to Bman for the time he puts into his site.
|Pawtuckett||Drew at 7/9/05 6:13pm|
|Played 7/9. Fairways in good shape overall, although the type of grass is not consistent. No real problems though. Greens on the other hand are about a hot week from being totally burnt. Most greens still had grass but were VERY fast and only a great approach shot would hold. Tough course - tight fairways and smallish greens. The great Saturday morning rate ($25 with coupon) will bring me back though...maybe in the fall once the grass thickens back up.|
|Crystal Creek..dont DO IT!||Golfer Dude at 7/9/05 10:29am|
|STAY AWAY!!!!!!!! THIS PLACE IS A TRAIN WRECK!!!! THE OLD BAG THAT WORKS IN THE CLUBHOUSE IS A WITCH!!! GREENS AND SAND TRAPS ARE DESTROYED!!! FAIRWAYS ARE LIKE A COW PASTURE...(COMPLETE WITH SHIT!!!)|
|More reviews||Hans at 7/5/05 5:45pm|
|Has anyone played Warrior in China Grove? Is it worth the trip?
Also worth mentioning, I have found some good deals for several courses in Charlotte on www.clickitgolf.com.
|Emerald Lake||gatlin at 6/30/05 8:28am|
|I played Emerald Lake yesterday for the first time several years. I was shocked that there was no mud on the tee boxes like there used to be. The course was in the best shape that I've ever seen it. The change around the 9th green to keep balls from rolling into the drink is a nice change.|
|Firethorne going private||The B-Man at 6/20/05 12:37pm|
|Saw an ad in the Observer last week saying Firethorne is going private in September. Only a few months left perhaps to play one of the nicer courses in the area.|
|Monroe||Jim at 6/18/05 8:56pm|
|Played at Monroe Golf Course today. Always in good shape but NOT now. Tee boxes had no grasss. Greens, which have always been excellent, are shot! They were hard as stone and were mostly dirt. What happened?|
|good deals||joe at 4/21/05 8:07pm|
|played sunset hills recently, i think it was in good shape for $26 on a sunday. also one of my favorites is green oaks in concord. always a deal at $20 during the week. greens are great now that aireafacation is over.|
|Pawtuckett Conditions||Soupy at 4/21/05 10:10am|
|Played Pawtuckett on 4/9. The practice green was unputtable and the driving range is permanently closed. The greens were a little rough but the fairways were in decent shape. I was not overly impressed, but hopefully conditions will improve with the warm weather.|
|Re: Used Clubs||Jim C at 4/9/05 5:48pm|
|Checkout Carolina Golf Manufacturing on Central Ave. John Gamble and Michael Kurilko are the best in town at fitting and finding the best clubs for a fair price.|
|Used Clubs||John Staley at 4/8/05 1:32pm|
|1st time here. Recently playing more and want to get better clubs. Any place to get Good Quality used clubs?|

|Re: course off 485||TGreenway at 3/28/05 2:19pm|
|That would be the "Divide" course....part of the Carolina Trails group, and yes it's public. FYI, there are several good courses along that stretch...further down on Lawyers is Emerald Lake, about 2 - 3 miles past that is Charlotte Natl. Then just up 485 at exit 244 (hwy 218) is Olde Sycamore...semi private, good course, and further down 485 near Albemarle Rd exit you can see Larkhaven golf course.|
|course off 485||RandyMan at 3/25/05 8:55am|
|What is that course off of 485 at Lawyers road that you can see from the highway? Is it a public course?|
|Tega Cay||Dooner at 3/8/05 11:43am|
|If you haven't played it, do yourself a favor and drive down to Tega Cay. 27 holes in all, the best combination is the "carolina pines 9" and the "grande view 9." Grande View is the newest 9 and most mountainous. You'll pay more on a weekend, but its worth it. Look for cards being sold around town, I got two and burned through them a couple summers ago. Haven't been around town lately so if anyone has played it lately, let me know how it looks.|
|Rocky River||Mike at 3/4/05 10:09am|
|Not sure if anyone else has played here recently, but I played Rocky River last weekend and the greens were the fastest I've ever played. I couldn't get my speed right and was blowing putts way by the hole. However, if you can get your speed right, there aren't greens that will roll more true, and you could have a great round.|
|Re: fly bye 18||Jim C at 2/11/05 10:57pm|
|Check out Eagle Chase in Marshville. Great shape. Great challenge. Not too much of a detour on your way to Florence. Another great course is Cheraw State Park about 25 miles from Florence. Always in great shape. Both of these course are challenging at a very affordable price.|
|fly bye 18||Jeremy at 2/11/05 1:06pm|
|I am heading to Florence on Feb 17th and wanted to stop and play a quality affordable course in Charlotte. The harder the better. I am hoping to take some $ off my buddy before we get to florence. Can you help?|
|Re: ISO golf course||Jim at 2/2/05 11:54am|
|You decision might be based upon where you are staying while in Charlotte. There are great public courses for players of all levels across the metro area. East you may look at Charles T. Myers, Emerald Lake or Olde Sycamore. North try the Tradition. West you might check Paw Creek. And South, Fort Mill Golf Course is a good one. Have a great visit to Charlotte|
|Re: ISO golf course||JB at 1/30/05 12:25am|
|Crystal Creek in Pineville should be okay for you. Charles T. Myers is a city course and could be what your looking for. Enjoy Charlotte!!|
|ISO golf course||Adam at 1/18/05 7:57pm|
|I'm going to be in Charlotte next month (Feb) and want to take my brother-in-law out for 9. He is very much a beginner, so an executive course or something of that nature would fit us best. I'm scratch, so something with a few "neat" holes would make it more enjoyable. I live in Kansas City and have just started my research. The only one I've found thus far is Revolution Park. Any suggestions or comments are appreciated. Thanks in advance.|

|California guy coming into Charlotte and then onto Wilmington over Thanksgiving. What's the weather like about that time of year? do courses stay open? thanks.|
|Re: Conditions at springfield?||Billy at 10/8/04 1:21pm|
|My friend and I played it this past Tuesday and the greens were coming back, not all of the way, but definitely worth the price. The rest of the course was in typical top condition. Don't forget to check lastminutegolfer, Springfield is offering a $16 weekday, 9-hole rate with cart!
