    Back at Warrior on a day when the course was as packed as I've ever seen one outside of a tournament. I had a 3:20 tee time reserved online and we were not called to the tee box until after 4:00. They had tee times spaced only 8 minutes apart where other local courses have gone to 15 or 20 minute intervals. They had difficulty turning carts around fast enough for the afternoon tee times. That said, the pace of play was good once we started - 4 hours on a packed course is excellent. We did finish 18 in near darkness though. Contrary to the previous review, they were allowing 2 people to a cart - except for seniors. There weren't any extreme precautions I've seen at other courses - clubhouse was open, grill was open (no dining in of course), hole cups were normal. Conditions-wise, I wasn't overly impressed. I've played at two other courses recently (Monroe CC and Lincolnton CC) where the greens were immaculate and quick. Warrior's greens were fine, no issues, but they were not fast - I left putts short all day. And they still aren't very receptive as far as checking up approach shots. The fairways were fine, though conditions just off the fairways were not as good - weeds and thin grass. The tee boxes were very thin and some were more dirt than grass. So overall, conditions were just average. As for the layout, I forgot how much I dislike the front 9 -- especially #7 where they use a turf tee box that you cannot get a tee in, and this for a hole that requires a 175yd carry over a hazard for what is a layup tee shot due to another hazard reachable by a 200+ yard drive that hits right center of fairway. The back 9, really starting with hole #9, gets a lot better but there are still many holes where you can't hit driver or risk getting into trouble. There are several very pretty holes -- #15 and #17 in particular -- where Lake Wright comes into play. #17 is my favorite hole, a risk-reward par 5 that garnered me an eagle putt yesterday (I just missed). This course is a top 10 Charlotte public course with reasonable rates - it just may take some getting used to.

The Divide closing for greens renovation this month

By The B-Man on 8/5/20

Great news for The Divide! The course was approved for a $350k greens renovation starting this month. The greens will be sodded with Diamond Zoysia grass, the same as Eagle Chase in Marshville (and those have been good year round). The work starts next week and the course...
