I booked this course to play with my sons when I flew to NC to see them. Course was nice but very dissapointed in that it was cart path only due to not water but a product that was supposedly applied to make the grass greener. If I had know this I would not have booked the course.

Good layout, worth playing

Really like the layout and back 9. Greens are fast but fair and there are a number of unique holes to keep you coming back. That said, the cart path only during dry conditions is a bit annoying and the cart GPS does not work consistently. So they could get a 5 star review if they fix a few things.

Good shape for this early in the season.

Greens were immaculate and extremely fast. Only criticism is that the tee boxes were in poor condition. And tees were shuffled around to shorten the course.

Great course

The course is greening up. Was CPO today but could have been 90 degrees on most fairways. Greens were running fast and true.

Big Bang for your Buck!

I may be old school, but I rate golf courses based on the overall bang (value) for your dollar spent. Course layout is beautiful and challenging. Course conditions still early spring, but improving each week. Greens are firm and roll true and fast for this time of year. Bunkers are well maintained. Inside and outside staff are pleasant and helpful. And beverages are cold. You would be hard pressed to find a better golf course in the Charlotte area to equal the "Bang for your Buck".
