Nice Course

I play the course at least 3-4 times a month all year and with the exception of the winter months, the greens always seem hairy and slow.

They need a trim and a little dose of speed

They do roll true

Still among the best

Olde Sycamore provides a predictably good golf experience all the time. Overall, it is among the best public courses in Charlotte.

Nice layout in pretty good shape

The tee boxes haven't come in yet this year., so you are teeing off from dirt on many holes. Other than that the course is in pretty good shape. the green roll true but are pretty slow.

Nice course but Golf Now reservation messed up

So Old Sycamore contracts with Golf Now for booking tee times. We had a res and arrived to find a shotgun tournament about to start. Apparently there was a communication breakdown between the course and Golf Now. Fortunately, the head pro Charles got us out early on the back nine and we had a nice round. Kudos to the staff that day for their courtesy.

scheduling problem

My partner and I reserved a tee time online days ahead of time. When we arrived for a Friday morning tee time, we and others who suffered the same snafu, were told there was an event that day and there were no scheduled tee times. We were not given a rain check or offer to reschedule. Staff just blamed the online scheduling system.

Enjoyable layout

Friendly staff, great course layout with challenging pin placement. The greens are recovering from aeration. The fairways are in decent shape. Grab a hot deal if available.

Down hill

This place has just gone downhill. Great course layout with so much potential, but they constantly over book, do not care for the conditions and are way over priced for the conditions and experience. Many other courses in the area are better for what you get.

Great golf course!

This golf course is a great course for all levels of golfers. The course is absolutely beautiful! I have had several people ask me about social media pictures of the course and where the course is located. Any time I am back in the area, I will definitely play this course again.
