River Oaks Golf Club


"Great course"

7/31/20: Review by BetterThanMost

First time out to River Oaks in several years. Course was in fantastic shape. Probably in the top four or five places I've played so far this year as far as conditions go. Tees, fairways, and greens all were great. Bermuda rough was thick in some places, yet more playable...

Description

Lincoln Country Club is located off Hwy 321 just north of Gastonia, only about 40 minutes northwest of uptown Charlotte. Amid the rolling terrain, hardwoods and meandering creeks of the Piedmont, Lincoln Country Club has been challenging golfers since 1946. In 2016, the greens were renovated and sodded with Diamond Zoysia grass. The front nine features tree-lined fairways that demand accurate tee shots, and small greens that reward precision. The back nine is more open, but being in the right places on the greens is still important. Ponds and creeks come into play on several holes while well-placed sand bunkers are incorporated into the course's traditional design. Four sets of tees will test players of every ability.

Notes

The club offers very affordable memberships (family plan for $1000 per year after $600 initiation).

B-Man's Take

Played my long overdue first round here in March 2020 to see what I've been missing. Can't believe it took me this long! The Diamond Zoysia greens (installed in 2016) are immaculate, smooth and quick. The layout is fun and offers many scoring opportunities. It's not a long course but does offer challenges with elevation changes and water hazards as well as blind doglegs. The very first hole is a risk-reward par 5 with a second shot (or 3rd for most) over water. The par 5 7th hole features a layup drive in front of a pond and then a steep uphill climb to the green. The signature hole has to be the short but 90-degree dogleg right par 4 18th hole to an elevated green right in front of the clubhouse. I really enjoyed the layout and the staff was super friendly to a rookie guest. I'll be back soon and often.

    "Great course"

    My first round here and I loved the course. Great layout and fantastic greens. They are Diamond Zoysia and were perfectly smooth and quick. The course gets an A for the greens alone. The original 9 holes is over 70 years old and has a great risk/reward mix, starting with the opening par 5, with an approach over water. Between the 1st and 2nd holes, there's some construction of condos going on and so it's walled off with black plastic. That's also made the 2nd hole a par 3 over water, as the construction is using that hole for runoff/retention ponds, where there was no hazard before. #7 is a great par 5 with a pond looming at the end of the fairway about 250 yds out and then an uphill climb to the green. Speaking of the greens, they are generally small. You can't have a putt over 60/80 feet on any green. With quick greens and some slopes, it can make putting and chips pretty tricky. This is a relatively short course with lots of scoring opportunities. The closing par 4 18th hole features a narrow landing area with a sharp dogleg right to the green which is perched on a hill next to the clubhouse. It was a fun round and I'll be back soon!

    Played Lincoln CC last week. Best greens I've putted in a long time anywhere. Fairways were good. Tee boxes ok. Good test of golf and fun to play. Only negative was cart path only.

    Forgot to mention that bunkers and cart paths need a bit of work but for the price this course is an excellent value.

    Almost blew somebody's windshield out. Check traffic before hitting on 10, 11 and 12.
    I hate this golf course. Love playing there, but it kills me. Just cannot figure out the greens. Most places I'm a two-putt or better. Not here. And yeah, they're fast, firm- my preference. One par-3 on the front I swear the ball appeared to roll uphill.
    Four doglegs are close to 90-degrees. Fun. Wide open fairways are sprinkled with semi-visible traps, plenty of water. No miss-hits allowed. Every shot has got to count. Most of the collars are a little chewed up. By the way, most greens are slightly elevated so you can forget about a bump and run. Short shots roll off to the side.
    Cheap rates. Paid $14 to walk. Which was a challenge. Some pretty steep hills. r />Worth playing this course just for #18 which has the steepest approach shot of any course in the area. Granted, I was pretty ragged at this point. At 135 yards out I hit a five-wood, thinking "If I hit the club house maybe that'll teach 'em." Pin-high with a steep downhill roll I two-putted for par on a hole I assumed I'd double- or triple-bogey. I hate this course.

Thanks for the list. Ive been looking for a place to play now that some businesses have opened up. Ive gained a lot of weight because of the lockdowns, I could use some golf.
