Re: Eagle Chase   panthersfann55 at 4/28/14 6:13pm
biggest thing is to take an extra club or 2 on certain holes. on #4 1 extra, #5 2 extra to the middle, #6 go with your gut its all downhill it does play it's true yardage, #9 one extra from the fairway, #11 go for the green in 2, #15 2 extra, 17 1 extra if u end up by the drain on the right. played this past fri and greens were quick. don't over think it focus on speed. the practice green reflects the course greens which is very rare.
Eagle Chase   HackingLefty at 4/28/14 3:24pm
Coming up tomorrow for the Wells Fargo this week, Have a tee time at Eagle Chase @ 11am thanks to suggestions from this website. Hopefully the weather service has wrongly predicted Mother Nature and the storms hold off until at least late afternoon. Any advice on the course for 2 mid-handicappers?
Cleghorn Plantation Conditions   MGOBLUE at 4/28/14 12:12pm
Played this course for the first time yesterday. Liked the layout of the back 9 better than the front. The fairways were a little rough, no pun intended but the greens were basically unplayable. Not sure what is going on there but it appeared they had been aerated and top dressed with too much sand. My son and I didn't even try to put after a few holes. There also appears to be some other type of grass or weed growing on them in many spots. The staff was very friendly and for $35 for a Sunday morning tee time and a free sleeve of Titleist golf ballsfor booking on line the price was great. I may be back if the conditions improve dramatically.
Statement from the new owners of the CT courses   The B-Man at 4/26/14 11:57pm
In case you are not on Clickit's mailing list, they sent out this statement from the new management company of the Carolina Trail courses. I'm not sure why it doesn't mention Waterford. We already know Charlotte Golf Links is closed for good and Skybrook has got a new owner.

"As you have probably heard, a foreclosure process was recently completed with respect to Birkdale Golf Club, The Divide Golf Club, Highland Creek Golf Club and Tradition Golf Club. As a result of that process, effective April 8, 2014, Romspen Birkdale LLC / Romspen Divide LLC / Romspen Highland Creek LLC / Romspen, The Tradition LLC is now the owner of the respective courses.

The new owners are committed to returning the golf courses to their r! ightful place as some of the best daily fee facilities in the Charlotte area and have retained the services of Traditional Golf Management to operate the day to day business. We understand that this has been a very volatile environment and we are confident that the new ownership and management will provide the much needed stability that these clubs need. We are currently working on both operating and capital plans that will allow us to show continuous improvement in the facilities and service levels at the clubs.

New membership programs are in place and special considerations are being given to those that held memberships under the previous ownership. Please contact the respective golf club for more information on the membership details (including the revised pricing for weekday sports members).

We are excited to begin the process of restoring these courses to the quality that was enjoyed years ago. We look forward to earn! ing back your business and seeing you on the golf course."%3! Cbr />

I am not a frequent visitor to this website but when I did visit I always enjoyed your posts. Enjoy the southwest!
Condition of Cleghorn   HittOD at 4/23/14 11:36am
I see a deal on GolfNow Dealcaddy for Cleghorn in Rutherfordton. I know this course is out of the Charlotte area, but I thought somebody on this list might have some information regarding Cleghorn. The deal is $28 for one round with a free replay on same day, and range balls, through May 31, 14. It states that Cleghorn was closed for a while and reopened on March 1. I've never played there. It sounds like they've had some problems. Does anyone know about the general condition of this course?   DrSchteeve at 4/21/14 11:15pm
Well, it's been a great time playing Charlotte golf for the past 20 years, but it is time to move. Heading for Scottsdale, Az, which should be fun. Leaving in July, so I will spend my last 3 months playing as many times as possible at Eagle Chase, Red Bridge, Olde Sycamore and Verdict Ridge (with at least one trip to Edgewater). Thanks to the B-Man for a great site that has helped me play the best courses in the best conditions.
Rock Barn Not on Course List?   Bogeybryan at 4/19/14 12:12pm
Why is the best club in northern Charlotte region not listed. Beautiful facility with two great courses and excellent staff.
Re: Carolina Trail Has New Owner   4Putts at 4/13/14 5:08am
It seems like 'occupying' the Tradition's driveway won't generate a large amount of sympathy amongst the non-golfing public. Fact is that these guys made a contractual agreement with an entity that no longer legally exists. No doubt it sucks but what is happening here is nothing new when a bankruptcy occurs. Legally... I believe the technical term is S.O.L.

Hopefully, the new owners are smart & savvy businesspeople who will figure out some way to lessen the pain but they are not obligated to do so. As always, Caveat Emptor...

Check out what these Carolina Trail members did today at The Tradition:

Good for them.
Aeration   slowmofo at 4/10/14 4:18pm
FYI it looks like Fox den aerated a week and a half ago. Still a little bumpy. It's that time of year for aeration so if you know anything please post!
Carolina Trails Courses   Fred C Dobbs at 4/9/14 11:11am
Romspen is one of the largest non-bank industrial and commercial mortgage lenders in Canada. You'll probably never see them as owners. They more than likely picked up the bankruptcy option as an investment only.
Re: Carolina Trail Has New Owner   pmatt at 4/9/14 10:05am
Would be nice for the new owner to give something to Gift of Golf coupon-holders. Like give them the greens fee and have them pay for the cart. Builds good will as they try to bring golfers back to those decrepit courses. Those coupons will be gone soon enough and they'll have kept the players' loyalty.
Carolina Trail Has New Owner   Wulfpack at 4/8/14 10:00pm
A Canadian lender has taken ownership of four Charlotte-area golf courses that were part of the troubled Carolina Trail group, according to letters from the company.

After the foreclosure process, Toronto-based Romspen is the new owner of the Birkdale, Highland Creek, The Divide and The Tradition golf clubs, the letters say. The new ownership is effective as of Tuesday.

Sunset Hills   panthersfann55 at 4/8/14 7:39pm
This course isn't listed and I only played it because it was a buddy's first time out this year. 3 star course nothing more nothing less. Greens were bumpy, bunkers had sand and were raked. It's a good short course if you are getting the rust out but other then that consistency isn't there. Paid $24 on clickit.
Re: Memberships   Dom at 4/7/14 9:00pm
Matthews off 51. I don't want to join a private course just looking for more a loyalty card i guess you could say....
Carolina Trail   teetime at 4/7/14 6:11pm
I have read about the positive changes at Skybrook, but does anyone know what is going on with the other courses owned by the Carolina Trail? I am knew to the area and looking for some insight.
Skybrook - Troon Golf   DrSchteeve at 4/7/14 3:14pm
When you look at the Troon Golf website - especially the list of courses they manage - it's hard to imagine this being anything other than a great thing for Skybrook. Yes, the prices will probably go up, but so should the quality of the course. It might be nice to have another higher end course in Charlotte.
Re: Memberships   OnePutt at 4/7/14 11:30am
What part of Charlotte do you live? Lots of options depending on location and your budget.
Re: Skybrook under new management again   Avidgolfer at 4/7/14 11:26am
CGL closed because the landowner wants to redevelop the land. Casper was hired by the receiver and the new owner probably just elected to hire a different manager.
Re: Skybrook under new management again   Better Than Most at 4/6/14 6:56pm
Not a good sign that Skybrook is changing management companies again so soon. With this and CGL sudden closing, I wonder if this is an indication of instability at Billy Casper Golf, or were the situations at those two courses so untenable that BCG made the decision to get out while they were still ahead.
Memberships   Dominic at 4/5/14 5:56pm
Im looking for a memebership at a decent price and a decent course or if anyone knows of a place that might be reasonable? Thanks for all your help. Also if anyone knows of a league that has a opening i am looking to join also.

Thanks again!
Skybrook under new management again   tobacco_rd77 at 4/1/14 8:24pm
Just found out that Troon Golf is taking over management of Skybrook. Hope the course continues to go in the right direction. Wonder how that will affect memberships?
Re: World-AM in Myrtle Beach   Don at 3/31/14 8:38pm
I have never played but I have a friend who has played the past few years. He loves it. Nice courses and great parties each night. Some people take it a little too seriously but he said most people are really friendly and out there to. Have a good time.
World-AM in Myrtle Beach   Lee Philips at 3/27/14 9:38am
I have been thinking of playing in the WorldAM in Myrtle Beach this summer, any here ever participated?
Charlotte Golf Links   DrSchteeve at 3/24/14 1:30pm
See the article on Charlotte Golf Links in the Course Review section. So, since the land Carolina Links was on wasn't part of the auction, ultimately the course wasn't foreclosed on because of the value of the real estate. So much for that theory...

Jeff, I got your email. Make up a list of questions and such. I'll try and help you out. We've been golfing in the Rock Hill area for 6 years. Gave up the trek to Myrtle Beach, found the golf cheaper and courses just as enjoyable.
