|Queen City Golf Pass||ISlayMySelf at 4/16/15 5:18pm|
|Does anyone have any feedback on the Golf Pass that is being offered now? I know it is for a couple of former Carolina Trail courses and was curious if the conditions, management and experience of playing have improved in the last year. I'd like to support the courses but I'm hesitant. Any feedback would be appreciated.|

|Try Red bridge in Locust or Rocky River in Concord.|
|Looking for good conditions April 3-5||jscum13 at 3/23/15 9:16pm|
|Couple buddies coming down from upstate NY to stay with me and play area courses in Charlotte NC. I know most of the courses are still dormant and fighting the moisture from the rain we've been getting but has anyone played an area course worth traveling to? It's a vacation for them so we'll drive as far as 50-60 mins from south charlotte. Any recommendations are appreciated.|

|Anyone know of any after work golf leagues|
|Re: senior play events||panthersfann55 at 1/26/15 6:21pm|
check out this website. You get to play a lot of the private clubs in town and compete with golfers on the same level. Can't sandbag it either. I played on their regular tour a few years ago. Good fun for all.
|senior play events||oneputt at 1/26/15 7:56am|
|I would like to find a listing of senior golf leagues or events open to the general golfing public. Thanks|
|WInter golf||Fred C Dobbs at 1/4/15 12:48am|
|Round was a little slow today at Deer Creek C.C. just outside Toronto. Fairways and greens were slick and difficult to read. Could have been the 5 inches of snow that fell the night before. I chuckle when I read the golfers comments regarding the conditions of the local courses during the N.C and S.C. winter months. We only dream of golf from Nov till April up here......lol
Looking forward to our return in the fall for some golf and Southern Hospitality in and around Fort Mill/Rock Hill area.
Cheers from up north in Canada.
|Re: Instructor||ComeBackWarmGolf at 12/23/14 12:43pm|
|I highly recommend Brett Latcham at Golf Depot.|
|Re: Instructor||dongtrgolfer at 12/19/14 12:39pm|
|I have tken lessons from Scott Fossum at Emerald Lakes and highly recommend him.|
|Re: Christmas Day||Ryan at 12/18/14 3:48pm|
|Rocky River is open, and FREE to walk, but the clubhouse is closed.|
|Instructor||ISlayMySelf at 12/18/14 2:32pm|
|I'm thinking about investing in lessons for the new year but wanted some input before I went further. Has anyone had lessons at the Regent Park Academy and if not do you recommend any instructors(perferably attached to a course) on the South Side of Charlotte?|
|Christmas Day||5putts at 12/18/14 11:47am|
|Anyone know which courses will be open for play Christmas Day?|
|Re: Emerald Lake or Sky Brook||Hobart at 12/11/14 11:40am|
|I have not played Skybrook since they have changed ownership, but I did play Emerald Lake last weekend and it was in good shape. The greens were good. Very quick.|
|Re: Emerald Lake or Sky Brook||slowmofo at 12/9/14 5:46pm|
|I would probably vote skybrook. There probably in the same shape with the greens being better at skybrook and I enjoy the layout better.|
|Emerald Lake or Sky Brook||pruittjc at 12/9/14 5:05pm|
|I was hoping that someone has played either of these courses in the last two weeks or so.
I saw the review for Emerald Lakes, but I also saw some not as favorable.
|Re: Golf League||dongtrgolfer at 12/1/14 11:12am|
|In the spring and summer Charlotte National has a dog fight on Thursday night after work around 5 PM.|
|Re: Golf League||slowmofo at 11/21/14 12:29pm|
|Not the best course, but Green Meadows is always running some type of tournament during the week around 2-3pm. It is usually nine holes with a bunch of side pots|
|Golf League||mjkcfp at 10/30/14 9:14am|
|Anyone know of any golf leagues in the area? 9 hole after work type thing? If not, anyone interested in helping to start/organize one for the South Charlotte area?|
|Coupla nominations||IM4DHERD at 10/27/14 5:45pm|
|Brushy Mountain in Taylorsville. Easy drive - 77N to 40W to 64 to Taylorsville, just off 64. About as far for me (Exit 23, Huntersville) as is Rock Barn, Deerbrook, Edgewater, Stonebridge. Very nice layout - Mountain style course with nice elevation changes and views of the foothills, particularly nice this time of year. Couple of house on #10 only, otherwise secluded and quiet...lot of mature trees. Fast, undulating greens. Fairways and teeboxes are some of the best around. Caveat: They just put about $2M into some course improvements and a new restaurant/clubhouse. There are many thin areas mostly outside of the fairways that need attending to, but they have had their hands full. Come Spring, this beauty will be fully back better than ever.
Als! o note Olde Beau is now listed...In that case you should list Cedarbrook, the course you see from 21 on the right as you head towards the big climb up the hill. Very nice course with what might be the best greens in NC. Olde Beau is fun, but IMO Cedarbrook is a better course and 20 mins closer.
|Carolina Lakes||Fred C Dobbs at 10/26/14 11:52pm|
|Anyone know if Carolina Lakes G.C. has a senior rate during the week?
Making arrangements for a trip down from Canada.
|The Divide||Jamie at 10/23/14 1:17pm|
|Played The Divide on Saturday 10/18. The recent reviews are accurate - the course is really showing signs of dramatic improvement. Good job by new management to turn things around. And the green fee was only $40 for prime time. Time to put this course back on my play list.|
|Carolina Crossing Golf Club||Fred C Dobbs at 10/17/14 7:47pm|
|Is Carolina Crossing Golf Club back up running and is a Semi-Private course.|
|Fox Den is now Larkin Golf Club||IM4DHERD at 10/16/14 6:40pm|
|As noted in my review today, the ownership of Stonebridge has finalized their purchase of Fox Den and re-branded her "Larkin Golf Club". Looking forward to seeing what they will do for the place, which is already a gem. Seeing some improvements already.|
|Re: Westport||slowmofo at 10/16/14 1:25pm|
|Agreed. They need to mow this stuff down a bunch especially since the weather is cooler now. I have a heavy putter and need to add like 45 lbs to it with how slow those greens are.|
|Westport||thesheedspot at 10/13/14 2:30pm|
|Slow greens, long fairways. Not a fan of the layout, it has a lot of blind shots and everyone in our group had several bizarre bounces off the fairways. The only way to make a putt here is to hammer it right at the hole, not much feel to the greens. Better options exist a lot closer for those in the Charlotte area.|
|Re: Private course recommendations||slowmofo at 10/13/14 2:27pm|
|Quail Hollow ( doubt you can get on )
TPC piper glen
River Run Country Club
Providence Country Club
Charlotte Country Club( also tough )
Though I am not sure what kind of reciprocals or pull your club has
|Private course recommendations||Don S at 10/10/14 10:26am|
I'm looking for recommendations on Private Clubs in or near Charlotte. I am comimg to Charlotte next week, and looking to play a couple rounds at private clubs. I belong to a small Club in Crete, IL, so I can have my Pro make me tee times.
|The Master's 2015 Trip||Rosemary at 10/4/14 5:09pm|
|I was lucky enough to get 4 tickets for The Master's 2015 and want to surprise my husband. We are coming from Ontario, Canada and I would appreciate recommendations for reasonable "stay & play" packages for Sat. & Sun. April 5 & 5. They would have to be near #77 or #20 as I assume this is the route we would have to take. Thank you in advance.|
