|Cleghorn Plantation Golf Club||panthersfann55 at 5/13/15 5:26pm|
|Made the trip out to Cleghorn today. Shot 93. Overall it seems to be a work in progress. The front nine fairways and tee boxes were being worked on (grass was patchy at best probably another year before its ready to go. Back nine fairways and tees a lot better but still need sometime to get better. Greens were in good shape. Bunkers had soft sand. Lots of elevation changes so course knowledge would help. Had a lot of side hill lies. Pace of play was great till we caught a 4some on the 15th hole that took forever on each shot (ready golf was not part of their game). Took a chance based on golfnow reviews and would say if you lived close to the course enjoy it with a golfnow or clickit deal unlike us being an 1hr and 1/2 will wait till next year.|

Just played carolina lakes and stonebridge in the last few weeks and I would be hard pressed to find 2 courses in better shape right now but still looking for options..
|Wells Fargo Championship||The B-Man at 5/12/15 11:43am|
|Who's going? Who's playing golf around town this week?
I'll be out there all 4 tournament days in the afternoon. I'm playing Firethorne (now private) and Verdict Ridge this week too.
If you are going to be out there, tweet at me (@charlottegolfer) or tag me in your Instagram photos (@charlottegolfer). Would love to meet some of you guys that regularly use the site and post reviews.
|Re: Queen City Golf Pass||The B-Man at 5/12/15 11:32am|
|Bought one Saturday and used my free round at The Tradition. It paid for itself on the same day since the card costs $50 and my Saturday morning round would have cost me $55. So now, any time I use it ($10 off rack rate, $5 off twilight), it will be a bonus.|
|Renaissance Golf Course||pruittjc at 5/8/15 10:03am|
Looking to get out for some twilight golf this evening and have overplayed Revolution. Has anyone played Renaissance in the past few weeks and if so, how was the condition of the course?
|Re: Queen City Golf Pass||dongtrgolfer at 5/6/15 7:59am|
|Just bough the pass. With improvements in the courses this is a pretty good deal and really pays for itself after two to three rounds with the one round free.|
|Re: Queen City Golf Pass||Jeff Allston at 4/17/15 9:49pm|
|I have played a few of the courses over the last year or so and they are better, not great, but better. I am still hesitant to buy anything from these courses other than a round of golf though. You just never know when the doors are going to close.....|
|Queen City Golf Pass||ISlayMySelf at 4/16/15 5:18pm|
|Does anyone have any feedback on the Golf Pass that is being offered now? I know it is for a couple of former Carolina Trail courses and was curious if the conditions, management and experience of playing have improved in the last year. I'd like to support the courses but I'm hesitant. Any feedback would be appreciated.|
|Re: Looking for good conditions April 3-5||tvrepairex at 3/24/15 8:12pm|
|Try Red bridge in Locust or Rocky River in Concord.|

|Couple buddies coming down from upstate NY to stay with me and play area courses in Charlotte NC. I know most of the courses are still dormant and fighting the moisture from the rain we've been getting but has anyone played an area course worth traveling to? It's a vacation for them so we'll drive as far as 50-60 mins from south charlotte. Any recommendations are appreciated.|

|Anyone know of any after work golf leagues|
|Re: senior play events||panthersfann55 at 1/26/15 6:21pm|
check out this website. You get to play a lot of the private clubs in town and compete with golfers on the same level. Can't sandbag it either. I played on their regular tour a few years ago. Good fun for all.
|senior play events||oneputt at 1/26/15 7:56am|
|I would like to find a listing of senior golf leagues or events open to the general golfing public. Thanks|
|WInter golf||Fred C Dobbs at 1/4/15 12:48am|
|Round was a little slow today at Deer Creek C.C. just outside Toronto. Fairways and greens were slick and difficult to read. Could have been the 5 inches of snow that fell the night before. I chuckle when I read the golfers comments regarding the conditions of the local courses during the N.C and S.C. winter months. We only dream of golf from Nov till April up here......lol
Looking forward to our return in the fall for some golf and Southern Hospitality in and around Fort Mill/Rock Hill area.
Cheers from up north in Canada.
|Re: Instructor||ComeBackWarmGolf at 12/23/14 12:43pm|
|I highly recommend Brett Latcham at Golf Depot.|
|Re: Instructor||dongtrgolfer at 12/19/14 12:39pm|
|I have tken lessons from Scott Fossum at Emerald Lakes and highly recommend him.|
|Re: Christmas Day||Ryan at 12/18/14 3:48pm|
|Rocky River is open, and FREE to walk, but the clubhouse is closed.|
|Instructor||ISlayMySelf at 12/18/14 2:32pm|
|I'm thinking about investing in lessons for the new year but wanted some input before I went further. Has anyone had lessons at the Regent Park Academy and if not do you recommend any instructors(perferably attached to a course) on the South Side of Charlotte?|
|Christmas Day||5putts at 12/18/14 11:47am|
|Anyone know which courses will be open for play Christmas Day?|
|Re: Emerald Lake or Sky Brook||Hobart at 12/11/14 11:40am|
|I have not played Skybrook since they have changed ownership, but I did play Emerald Lake last weekend and it was in good shape. The greens were good. Very quick.|
|Re: Emerald Lake or Sky Brook||slowmofo at 12/9/14 5:46pm|
|I would probably vote skybrook. There probably in the same shape with the greens being better at skybrook and I enjoy the layout better.|
|Emerald Lake or Sky Brook||pruittjc at 12/9/14 5:05pm|
|I was hoping that someone has played either of these courses in the last two weeks or so.
I saw the review for Emerald Lakes, but I also saw some not as favorable.
|Re: Golf League||dongtrgolfer at 12/1/14 11:12am|
|In the spring and summer Charlotte National has a dog fight on Thursday night after work around 5 PM.|
|Re: Golf League||slowmofo at 11/21/14 12:29pm|
|Not the best course, but Green Meadows is always running some type of tournament during the week around 2-3pm. It is usually nine holes with a bunch of side pots|
|Golf League||mjkcfp at 10/30/14 9:14am|
|Anyone know of any golf leagues in the area? 9 hole after work type thing? If not, anyone interested in helping to start/organize one for the South Charlotte area?|
|Coupla nominations||IM4DHERD at 10/27/14 5:45pm|
|Brushy Mountain in Taylorsville. Easy drive - 77N to 40W to 64 to Taylorsville, just off 64. About as far for me (Exit 23, Huntersville) as is Rock Barn, Deerbrook, Edgewater, Stonebridge. Very nice layout - Mountain style course with nice elevation changes and views of the foothills, particularly nice this time of year. Couple of house on #10 only, otherwise secluded and quiet...lot of mature trees. Fast, undulating greens. Fairways and teeboxes are some of the best around. Caveat: They just put about $2M into some course improvements and a new restaurant/clubhouse. There are many thin areas mostly outside of the fairways that need attending to, but they have had their hands full. Come Spring, this beauty will be fully back better than ever.
Als! o note Olde Beau is now listed...In that case you should list Cedarbrook, the course you see from 21 on the right as you head towards the big climb up the hill. Very nice course with what might be the best greens in NC. Olde Beau is fun, but IMO Cedarbrook is a better course and 20 mins closer.
|Carolina Lakes||Fred C Dobbs at 10/26/14 11:52pm|
|Anyone know if Carolina Lakes G.C. has a senior rate during the week?
Making arrangements for a trip down from Canada.
|The Divide||Jamie at 10/23/14 1:17pm|
|Played The Divide on Saturday 10/18. The recent reviews are accurate - the course is really showing signs of dramatic improvement. Good job by new management to turn things around. And the green fee was only $40 for prime time. Time to put this course back on my play list.|
