Horrible greens

I’ve played this course a number of times and not been this disappointed in the past. But the round on 8/7/22 was terrible. The pace of play was absurd and no one did anything about it, even though the marshal admitted he knew it. But the worst part of the round was the condition of the greens. Every one was peppered with unrepaired ball marks. There were literally hundreds of them on every green. There were also a couple of greens that had been washed out.
Just when I thought this would be my go-to course, it has gone bad in a big way.

Worst greens in charlotte

The course is 70-90$ on weekends and my buddy and I tried it out for the first time today. I’m not exaggerating when I say these are the worst greens I’ve ever seen around the Charlotte area. Do not waste your money here. The greens on every hole have dead patches and they all need to be redone. A few are beyond bringing back without a complete overhaul. The course layout was nice and challenging with pretty good fairways, but the condition of the greens with the price of the course is just beyond unreasonable. Wouldn’t pay over 40$ for the condition of this course. Stay away until they make some serious changes

Need to refund reservation fee

On August 2nd I made a reservation, but cancelled it to make an earlier tee time. So far Golf Now has charged me two reservation fees of $31.56. The first reservation fee needs to be refunded to my card.
Please confirm.

Good course, bad condition

This was my first time playing at Old Syc and had high hopes. Friends that have played before had good things to say and it was a nice drive in. The course layout was fun and there are good looking holes. These were some of the absolute WORST greens I’ve ever played on, especially paying $80 for the round. Many greens had large patches with no grass and dried/cracked ground. Totally unacceptable conditions for greens when you’re charging players $80. Egregious.

Greens were absolutely torched and not in good condition. All shots into the green would hit the surface and immediately stop. No roll out. Bunkers were over fluffy and not well managed. Landed in a few previous footprints. I would be interested to play this course when it has cooled down in the fall. But right now, it is not worth the money I paid.

Horrible Greens

I have played this course a few times and it was always pristine. I don't know what is going on, but today the greens were some of the worst I have ever seen. I would be ashamed to charge more than $20 to play the course with greens in the condition they were in.

Rough greens and confused starter

We have played courses all over NC and always thought Old Sycamore was a prestigious course.. it was a bit of a let-down to play here. It began with a starter that didn't seem to know what course he was on. He told us the flags were the typical red, white or blue. In reality, they were all burgandy. We assumed the smaller yellow flags underneath this showed the pin position, but we never could figure it out. Pace of play was pretty rough. They have a sign on the carts about warnings and possibly being asked to leave for slow pace of play, but nothing changed. The tee boxes and fairways were decent, on this challenging course, but the greens were pretty rough. Dead patches everywhere and rough/dug up spots throughout. The price was great for a Friday afternoon, but we gave better places to play.

Fun enjoyable round

Pace of play was 4/5, only waited about 30 minutes in total throughout the day. Course was in great shape especially with the recent rain. Greens are average speed, however, require prior play to accurately select lines.

Great course

Great course with some challenging holes. Everything was in great condition except the bunkers which needed some sand. Going to chalk that one up to the lots of rain we’d had recently.

Starter was rude

Was in the club house in line at 8:35am for my tee time after getting skipped in line by the group behind us for there tee time at 9am we patiently waited checked in and got the cart and went to the starter in which we were stuck behind the 9 am group who drove slowly where we could not get passed them to get to the starter. That group then tried to go out early which is when we told the starter we are the 8:42 tee time. He then said 8:42 tee time showing up at 8:48 very rudely when it was 8:46. After the starter rudely told us to “get on” we drove up to our tee box and still had to wait for the group in front of us to clear the fairway. So the 4 minutes of us being late made no difference whatsoever. Understandably there is no scenario where being late is ok but we all were there in a timely manner and was skipped rudely and slowed down by the 9 am tee time we would have been there at exactly tee time. The starter seemed to have a problem with us being a younger group in which we are avid golfers with plenty of golf experience. I will not be coming back and or suggesting it to any of my peers as long as that starter is working there which is a shame because the course was one of my favorites. I would suggest a more friendly starter or one who doesn’t judge people without knowing them.

Great Layout, Good Course

The course had a great layout! Fairways, tee boxes, traps, and most greens were in great shape! Some greens look like they had some mold and rough spots in them. Also saw many divots without sand and pitch marks on greens not fixed sad to see at such a nice place and players not repairing their marks. Overall it was a nice course and will for sure go back! Greens were fast but true and was a fun time.
