The back cover of the yardage book claimed that GolfCarolina.com had rated this course No. 4 on their Top 10 best Values of Charlotte in 2001. That might be a little bit of a stretch in 2014, but I did receive good value for the $22 green fee. The very strong winds (blew the ball off the tee several times) played havoc with scoring, but did not entirely ruin the outing. Course conditions were generally similar to those described in the March 14 review posted on this site with the exception of the greens which had been aerated since then. The little pock marks were still rather prominent, but didn't affect putting as much as the wind (moved the ball by at least 1 foot, on one occasion). A couple of considerations for those who have never played the course: (1) the fairways are rather narrow, however almost all of them are relatively straight with no major trouble (2) the cart paths may be best described as "rustic" ranging from concrete surfaces around the greens and tee boxes, to dirt and gravel (or no defined path at all)everywhere else, and (3) there are no relief stations, Port-a-Potty or otherwise, on the course and since it is located within an established community no "good" trees or the like are available either. As B-Man notes in his description of the course, it is somewhat remote for Charlotte golfers, and it is about a 35-minute drive for me, but I intend to try it again, in the summer, when (hopefully) fairways and tee boxes will be green and lush before I decide whether or not it is a good golfing value course.
