Good layout spoiled by weedy greens

I have played this course a few times over the last couple of years. It is interesting in design as there are five par5's and par 3's . There are three par 5's in a four hole stretch on the front. The last of these, hole 6, is reachable with any drive of 250 or more. This causes a back up when the tee sheet is full as most everyone tries to go for it. There was a 20 minute wait from the completion of previous hole before we could tee off. #9 is a beautiful short par three, ≈ 160 yards from the tips, over a lake, well bunkered, multi-tiered green. Overall the course favors someone with a left to right ball flight for a right handed golfer. Holes 7, 8, 10, 13, 15, and 17 all bend or dogleg to the right with only hole 3 going to the left.

The defense of the course is in its demanding tee shots and undulating greens. Only a couple of holes are "wide open" for your drive, (2 & 18) and one would be smart to take a 3-wood or less for accuracy over distance in several instances. (7, 8, 10, 12, & 17)

While the greens are part of this courses defense, they are also, currently, their biggest opportunity. Usually, Red Bridge's greens are true and well kept. However, over 50% of them currently have a weed infestation. (Goose grass I believe) This makes balls veer and deviate from their putted line and frustration for the player. On a few, over 1/2 of the green is riddled with this problem with #4 being particularly bad.

Realizing it is spring and I played on a Saturday, I expect a 4 hour round. That said, the rangers could have done more to help the pace of play. For the last 12 holes, the group in front of us was an entire hole behind the group in front of them. We did see a ranger three times, and said something on the 12th hole, but nothing was done to speed up play.

Overall, I would recommend Red Bridge as its layout is unique and challenging. With it being a 50 minute drive from most places in Charlotte, I would wait until they have corrected the weed issue before driving back again.

Nice layout

Fairways and roughs were in winter conditions. Greens held the approach shot well and rolled true. Those that were mowed were medium speed; those that were not mowed were slow. Course is starting to recover from the winter.

Terrible all around experience.

First off, I have been playing this course for years and used to love it.

The course has gone downhill quick and all the do is up their rate. $60 to play Sunday morning and the course was awful. Tee boxes had little grass, greens had weeds all in them and they were extremely bumpy.

My cart died on hole 13, called the pro shop, they asked if I could come in and get a cart because no one was around.....we finish the round, and they have 3 people cleaning 1 golf cart.

Absolute awful experience all the way around when this used to be one of my favorite tracks.

Came to this course because it was highly rated. Greens weren’t in really good conditions with it being May. A lot of blind shots with hills here your ball could roll 50 yards out of bounds on good shots.

Great course

Piece of play was great until we ran into the foursome in front of us on hole 10. They were so slow and really messed up the back 9. They were fooling around and hitting happy Gilmore shots while taking pictures. This was a great course!

Greens are bumpy and need to remove bad grass

I always enjoy playing here and since it has dried out over the last 2 weeks I played the tips. The only problem I really had was with the greens. Over the last year the miniverde greens have been invaded by small patches of foreign grasses which make the greens bumpy and knock putts off line. This really needs to be cleaned up ASAP!

In the mean time if they rolled the greens and cut the greens down so the foreign grass was the same height as the minverde it would definitely help!

The winter was tough on our greens and was perfect for poa annua, which is what has invaded our greens. We have been working on them and sprayed them numerous times to try and eradicate the poa. The greens should be better within a few weeks. Please check back with us to confirm conditions. Thanks for playing Red Bridge.

I hadn't played here in years, but wanted to try it out again. The staff in the club house were amazing, incredibly helpful. The course itself is a really nice course with a great layout. The greens needed some work, but the tee boxes and fairways were in great shape. Course wasn't too crowded and weather was perfect. Highly recommend this course!

Very friendly staff, and wide open layout

-The staff is extremely friendly and welcoming.
-Driving range is in good shape and you can tell they take care of it w/ sand to replace divots when you're done.
-Putting green is comparable in conditions and speed to the actual course (something you don't see everywhere).
-It's very generous off the tee w/ plenty of landing area, especially if you're willing to play each hole as it was meant to be played (rather than trying to cut corners and hit blind shots).
-While the greens were in bad shape w/ lots of Poa Annua throughout, we were given a warning by the staff in the clubhouse upon check-in. The greens should improve as the temperatures start to rise. I can see these greens being fast/true in June/July.

I just need to see the greens get better before I would recommend this course to a friend, especially for $60/round.

Great course, disappointing condition as of 04/10/2021

We have played here many times over the years, probably at least 30 times. As with every course, the course condition varies by season. Currently, this course is in below-average condition which was very disappointing to see. It does not appear that anything was done to prevent Poa and other weeds from moving in and boy have they. Most greens are covered with Poa which really screws up putting. Separately, the tee boxes are in terrible condition although the tee boxes had far less impact on play than the greens. It really is a great course and definitely challenging but (man!) those greens need help ASAP. The staff is always great. We would have like to see a beverage cart though being a Saturday and with plenty of players on-course to make it worth the time and labor cost. I will be back, many more times probably, but Ill definitely be avoiding the place for a couple months for them to turn their greens around.

We are not happy with our course conditions at this time either. We have sprayed the poa annua on the greens and will continue to work on them to get them back into shape as quickly as we can. We will also work on the tee boxes when the weather warms a little more and allows the Bermuda grass to start growing again. We expect the course to be much better by early May. Please feel free to check back with us about conditions before playing again.

We are not happy with the conditions either and are working on them. Please bear with us as it takes time to get the poa annua out of the greens. They should be much improved by early May. Please check back with us in the pro shop to get an update on conditions.

Piwer Thru the Poa

Every course has excuses why their conditions aren’t pristine & worthy of our $. Last summer/fall/winter was disastrous for many local courses but lack of proper minimum maintenance is inexcusable. Several teeing areas are barren, most greens are 10-25% Poa Annuna even though much has been eradicated. I like the layout with it’s elevation changes, varying lengths of par 3s & potentially reachable par 5s, the R 2 L & L 2 R doglegs & decent layup areas off the tees. The current staff is ambivalent & not the most friendly at the counter but the marshals are at least conversational. Even w the less than stellar conditions it’s OK to play & pay the Sr rate but you’ll have to Power thru the Poa.

Greens Could Be Better

I've always enjoyed playing Red Bridge but the most recent experience was not very good. We played behind a very slow 4-some and the ranger could not do anything except telling them to "speed it up a little". The course was packed with golfers on a Tuesday due to a Tuesday special discount. The greens were as bad as I've played anywhere. They were fast but full of weed clumps which would knock your gentle putts of course most of the time.
Other than those, the course is good.
