Worth the drive

I come from Charlotte about 45 minutes away. The course in good shape. They try to keep the leaves out of the fairways. Greens rolled true and fairly quick compared to other Charlotte courses. Was windy the day I played which made it even more challenging. I would recommend this course wish it was a little closer to my house.

Interesting layout

Fairways and roughs in good condition. Most sand traps were hard packed. Greens rolled true and were medium speed. Most greens held the approach shot.

First Time Playing

Great greens and layout

I was recommended this course last Sunday while playing with some random people. My friends and I drove about an hour from Charlotte to check this out. It is an extremely fun course. Honestly, one of the best layouts you’ll ever play. The greens are a 10…absolutely perfect. We played 36 holes…for $65. Can’t barely find a course in Charlotte that is less than $65 for 18. The pace of play was really slow…that was the only negative. I’ll be making the trip back to this course because of the fun/challenging layout and great greens!

Good course for the money

Fairways and roughs were in good condition. Sand traps were hard packed. Greens held the approach shot, putted true, speed varied by hole. Some greens were medium speed, some were very slow.

Great Course as Always. However,Members Need To Learn Golf Etiquette!

The course was in great shape as always. Best greens around. The only complaint I have is the members are very rude and hit into you. I’ve played here. quite a few times abs it has happened almost every time. We aren’t high handicappers. However. It didn’t matter because the course was crowded so we had to wait on groups in front of us from the start so we couldn’t play any faster. The club pro needs to have a chit chat with his members before someone handles it themselves. We all pay to play just like members and shouldn’t be treated any differently.

Best Course In The Area

This course has some amazing greens, very well maintained and by the way it is extremely affordable. The staff has always been very nice and helpful. Pace of play is pretty good. The only issue I’ve had is some of the regulars hit off the red tees while I was still on green. The balled landed 3 ft in front of me. Guy said he played there 4 times a week. He should know better. Had other groups hit before they should have. Also seen where someone drove there cart through nearly every bunker on course so sand was piled up in tracks. I enjoy playing here and feel the staff will take these things seriously and stop it. It is an amazing course so if your in Shelby, NC area I recommend checking it out.

Pristine condition

Course in excellent condition all around. Fairways lush and mowed short. Greens very fast pace but roll true. Pins were in VERY challenging positions. Some almost ridiculous. Made for very tough round but very enjoyable
