More on Skybrook and Golf Links   Wulfpack at 8/6/13 7:33pm
Don't give The Trail another penny, folks. Plenty of other great options.

Skybrook Golf Club, Charlotte Golf Links owe millions, placed in receivership
Skybrook   BJGrooves at 8/5/13 8:59am
Yes Billy Casper took over on a judges order on Friday I have meet the transition team. Hunting Dog investments was the holder of the note on the property and filed the paperwork.
Course is over grown with weeds and greens are showing signs of dollar spot again. Rumor has it Textron was coming for the carts which are bad anyway. Hopefully a quick management change and some cash will save the greens and get the course playable. Likely take a year to fix everything, then you they have to fix the business model to get the cash flow up to take care of the place. The deals have to stop.
Skybrook and Charlotte Golf Links   DrSchteeve at 8/3/13 8:13pm
If you Google Billy Casper Golf, it is a real company that appears to do a good job of managing real golf courses.

If you Google IRI Golf, the first listing is something to the effect that "Jeff Silverstein is an ***hoe, and you can't find a website that seems to suggest that IRI is a real company.

Let's hope all the IRI courses go to Billy Casper Golf. Let's hope Silverstein ends up in shackles.

If that is a fact, I am elated!

Skybrook & Charlotte Golf Links are in receivership and as of today are under the management of Billy Casper Golf
Rock Barn   IM4DHERD at 8/1/13 10:33pm
Played Glen Oaks today, which by the way is in (as always) incredible shape...I always feel like I am on vacation when I play there. Anyway, they tell me that they have been packed because ROCK BARN HAS BEEN CLOSED due to all the weather. Said they've already cancelled the Sr. Tour event in large part due to the areas they set up hospitality tents being washed out. That and they are not sure when they would be able to re-open the Jones course anyway due to all the damage from the whole season of rain followed by last weekend's 10-12 inches. Not only Rock Barn, but he listed a whole bunch of other courses I wasn't familiar with as being closed. I'd bet River Oaks is a mess and probably closed...They have a lot of low-lying areas.
Fall Golf   Fred C Dobbs at 7/28/13 7:43pm
Hi,
We come down from Ontario each year the last week of Sept/Oct for 9 rounds of golf. You'd like Edge Water, Springfield and Fort Mill. All three are enjoyable to play.
Note: You can't beat the southern hospitality that the Charlotte area people extend to you when you visit. We gave up on the hectic "take you money and run" golf you find on the Myrtle Beach strip and stay in the Rock hill area.
Cheers

Cleghorn   DrSchteeve at 7/23/13 4:14pm
Cleghorn was a great track, but it is closed.
Re: On the way to Asheville   IM4DHERD at 7/23/13 2:10pm
Haven't played there, but Cleghorn gets good reviews. I will personally vouch for Deer Brook in Shelby.
Re: Thirsty? Beware of Regent Park   slowmofo at 7/23/13 10:52am
I on the other hand do not care about the coolers. As I will just bring twice as much beer and not buy anything at the pro shop then. More beer = more fun
Re: Thirsty? Beware of Regent Park   ILL-INI at 7/23/13 10:21am
I asked one of the Rangers while I was playing there why they didn't have any water coolers and he told me they were having theft issues with people taking the coolers. Really? Someone is coming out in the middle of the day, walking through the course, and carrying away a 50 gallon jug cooler? Like the Italian Job? I doubt it. I just don't think they want to pay anyone to fill up the coolers and take them out, bring them back in at night. What is it with these courses that have stopped going the extra mile for their clients? My theory...they want you buying all their powerades/water in the pro-shop. Has nothing to do with the coolers getting stolen. Just another trick to rid you of a few more of your dollars.
Thirsty? Beware of Regent Park   Jamie at 7/23/13 7:43am
One of my favorite courses is Regent Park, I play there at least once a month, sometimes twice, always fairly early on Saturdays. For some weird reason they have stopped providing water coolers on the course now that we are in the hottest period of the year. The last five times or more I have been out on Saturday morningss, no drinking water anywhere. Plenty of stands for drinking water coolers, just no coolers. Also never anyone selling refreshments, I'm not sure why they have a refreshment stand in the fist place. Bizarre to say the least. Make sure you bring your own cooler or stock up at the clubhouse before you start play. Just an FYI.
On the way to Asheville   DrSchteeve at 7/22/13 11:00am
Deer Creek, in Shelby, NC, off route 74 always gets good reviews. North of Asheville Reems Creek is a fun tract.
Re: Asheville Route Recommendations?   panthersfann55 at 7/21/13 9:53pm
lake lure has 2 very different mountain golf courses. apple valley and bald mountain. played them some years ago but were very challenging.
Asheville Route Recommendations?   Sean at 7/21/13 7:21pm
I'm going to be heading up to Asheville on the 8th and was thinking about trying to play a round someplace along the way.

Most of the routes there (74 or 40) are about the same distance. Anything out in the middle of nowhere I might consider checking out?
Carolina Trail   DrSchteeve at 7/19/13 8:25pm
The sad thing is that even if the courses are bought by entities - such as homeowner associations - that will restore them to their former and potential glory, the curent owner may still escape without jail time.

The fat lady is warming up her vocals....

Complaints of unpaid wages persist at Carolina Trail golf courses

Aerial footage of Revolution Park under water   The B-Man at 7/16/13 9:23am
This is amazing video of what Revolution Park looked like after the flooding rains last week:



This aerial footage was shot by the WBTV helicopter last Thursday (7/11/13).
walking   Fred C Dobbs at 7/11/13 7:33pm
Fort Mill is an easy walk.
Re: any courses to walk?   slowmofo at 7/11/13 3:34pm
I have seen people walking at Olde Sycamore and Larkhaven ( which is only worth playing Nov-Feb)

any courses to walk?   tobacco_rd77 at 7/10/13 7:20pm
I much rather walk than ride. Are there any courses that allow walkers besides Rocky River that are worth playing?
Carolina Trail   ILL-INI at 7/10/13 12:06pm
I don't feel sorry for anyone that plays the CT anymore. If you're dumb enough to waste your money on these crap tracks, have at it.
