I like this course because it is out by itself with no houses packed around it. Natural beautiful course.

I played with a couple of tar heel and duke golfers. It was a lot of fun watching them compete against each other. As for me. I had never seen the course and shot a 76. I had a good day.

Book With Confidence

I was in town visiting my sister who lives in Charlotte and wanted to get a round in with my dad and my son. This was the closest public track to her house, so it made the most sense to play here. The course had a really fun and challenging layout, and the greens were rolling really true for being off season. When I mentioned that to the staff member, he told me they just redid all the greens.

The only negative of the whole day was pace of play. Somehow we were stuck behind 4 groups of absolute hacks who decided they wanted to play a scramble. When I say they were hacks, calling them terrible would be an upgrade. At times we were 3 groups deep on a tee box, with no way of playing through. Obviously the skill level of the golfers is no reflection on the course, but had there been a ranger doing there job, they would have been able to step in.

Great course but needs a ranger

Perfect sunny day with awesome weather but no ranger to move the slow players along created some frustration which ultimately caused me to throw in the towel on hole 13.

Back in shape

Course was in solid condition. Greens and fairways were good today after the re-opening. A few tee boxes still need some care, but overall in good shape. The cart paths do need a lot of work. This is not a private course so don’t except those type amenities regarding carts, club house or range/range balls. The course can be a tricky since it does have more than a few blind tee shots due to the elevation changes. Also, there are some bunkers and waste land areas than can be issue if you misplace a tee shot. This can make for a challenging first round at this course.

Nice new greens

New greens are great. Fairways in good shape. A bit of standing water is a few places. Some tee boxes need a little TLC. But overall a good value and a fun course to play.

Wow! New greens are fantastic!

I hadn't played Harry Jones since before they shut down for green replacement. Wow, they did a fantastic job. This golf course was always close by, convenient, fairly-priced and the staff is always super friendly. Now they have a beautiful set of greens to go along with everything else that makes this public track a special place in Charlotte. Do yourself a favor and check out the renovations. They did a fantastic job. I think these greens are only going to get better as they continue to grow.

New Greens are why I’m coming back. Last year the greens weren’t worth putting. They’re beautiful now.

Starter needs replacing

This is an excellent course for the price you pay, but the starter is usually a stickler. Today we missed our T-time by a couple minutes and asked if we could just play behind the group of 4 that was coming ahead of us, since there was no one behind them. The starter told us no and that we had to skip hole 1. Not cool, even if we were 3 minutes late.
