|Re: Course Suggestions||cyoung2ty at 6/29/15 5:44pm|
|Lincoln Country Club has easily been one of my least favorite courses I've played since I moved down here. It wasn't in good shape (this was last April)... the greens were miniature... the staff pretty much didn't even acknowledge we were there... and overall, for a 'country club', it was horrible.
Again... this was last April. It's very possible I caught it at a bad time, so... reserve judgement until you've heard from others.
Also, a big group played Rock Barn in the early part of May and said it was the most winterkill they'd seen... but again, that was 7+ weeks ago, it may have turned around by now.
|Re: Course Suggestions||MadMax2015 at 6/29/15 10:58am|
|Anyone played Lincoln Country Club? Can see if from the highway 321. Is it a private course?|
|Re: Course Suggestions||MadMax2015 at 6/26/15 8:13pm|
|Thanks. Heard there was a good bit of winter kill up that way but that may be a thing of the past. Played Glen Oaks but not a big fan of the layout.|
|Re: Course Suggestions||slowmofo at 6/26/15 2:01pm|
|You can never go wrong with either of the Rock Barn courses. Larkin isn't too bad and Verdict Ridge is turning around.|
|Course Suggestions||MadMax2015 at 6/25/15 12:09pm|
|I'm looking for suggestions for courses north of Charlotte. Any feedback on courses such as Rock Barn, Glen Oaks, Lincoln, and the like would be appreciated.|
|10 play cards||Spencer at 6/22/15 5:26pm|
|Anyone know of a good deal on a multiplay prepay card for any good courses around Charlotte? I saw that Red Bridge had a Father's Day special but I just missed out on it. Will be playing a lot during some time off and looking to play good courses for a little less if possible! Thanks!|
|Re: Winterkill of Bermuda Grass in N.C.||cyoung2ty at 6/22/15 2:48pm|
|Definitely the courses up north were the most hard hit.
Irish Creek is an absolute mess. Warrior is even worse.
Meanwhile, a little further south... Stonebridge, Tega Cay and Carolina Lakes seem just fine (with a few spotty areas here and there).
|Re: Is Deer Brook any good?||Landon at 6/16/15 10:51am|
|Deer Brook is awesome right now played there this past Sunday it was there member guest that day but they got us out at 7 am The Fairways are perfect as well as tee boxes the greens are as good as you are going to get. They were very fast. This is a hidden gem only issue is it is a 45-50 min drive from Charlotte a must play.|
|Re: Is Deer Brook any good?||Bogey-Golf at 6/15/15 7:42pm|
|Thanks for the info. I ended up taking quick overnight trip to pinehurst area. Played Tobacco Rd on Sunday and played Dormie Club today. I recommend both to everyone but Dormie is now in my top 5 of all courses I have played.
|Re: Winterkill of Bermuda Grass in N.C.||slowmofo at 6/15/15 2:49pm|
|Thanks for the info B. It seems like most of the courses in N Charlotte and above were affected badly. Rocky River and Verdict Ridge's fairways were hurt, but are turning around.|

|Winterkill of Bermuda Grass in N.C.||The B-Man at 6/13/15 10:58pm|
|The Carolinas Golf Association posted this article last month that has a good description of the problem affecting some of our local Charlotte golf courses:
Winterkill of Bermuda Grass in N.C.
I sympathize with the plight of the local courses suffering from this and I will return to play them once the issues are corrected. Let's do our best to support them.
|Highland Creek Condition||DJ at 6/13/15 9:45am|
|Has anyone played Highland Creek recently? Interested to hear if it's in good shape or not.
|Re: Is Deer Brook any good?||5putts at 6/12/15 1:30pm|
|Absolutely worth the drive. Nice track, typically in good shape, has some interesting holes but not at all 'tricked up'. Try it!|

|Wanna play somewhere I haven't played before. Is it worth it?|
|The Divide||Jamie at 6/8/15 8:58am|
|Played at The Divide on 6/6/15. The course is in decent shape as far as fairways are concerned. The greens looked good and were very consistent, but they were extremely slow. They had been cut, just were cut high for some reason. Very different from all other course I have played this year.|
|Re: Membership||Ga Heel at 5/31/15 9:53pm|
|JB- Check out Raintree Country Club in South Charlotte. They have a deal for e-tour players that seems pretty reasonable. There are several e-tour players there all the time. There are 2 courses that are always in great condition. It's private and the pace of play is usually very good.|
|Membership||Jb at 5/26/15 11:50pm|
Question: just moved down from NY to pursue golf full time; trying to compete on the mini tour down here. Looking for a good course to join that would good practice facilities, putting greens basically the works. On a tight budget affordable monthly under two hundred. Any suggestions. Please help
|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.|
|Looking to book a good public semi/priv round for Saturday May 30th ??||Kevin at 5/13/15 2:12pm|
|Hey folks, got a few buddies coming in town from Boone and am trying to decide on what course to play.. Any recs..
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.|
|Looking for good conditions April 3-5||jscum13 at 3/23/15 9:16pm|
|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.|
