    Good news and bad news. The good news is that, now, carts are permitted on Nos. 1 and 6 holes where such access was desperately needed. The bad news is that the course renovation/rejuvenation has apparently stalled, and several issues that had been addressed earlier in the year have regressed somewhat. The biggest disappointment is that there has been no improvement in any of the bunkers contrary to what I was led to believe was in the offing back in June - no evidence of any work whatsoever - and the only improvement was no standing water (but we haven't had rain for over a week, so that's not saying much). Several greens were stressed either with bare spots and/or mower scrapes, and the ball didn't roll exactly true. The fairways were good-to-average, but my biggest complaint remains: too many uneven lies. Finally, I was playing as a single, and soon ran up against another single who was playing behind a foursome which was playing behind a fivesome! This made for an extremely slow second nine that ruined any playing rhythm, or momentum. I likely will not play Skybrook again until next year in order to give the new management one, last chance to make the course worthwhile.

    NCTONY at 11/10/17 11:53am – I know for a fact Skybrook doesn’t permit 5 some play together. They have fixed many of the bunkers only a few remain to be worked on. Uneven lies in fairways is a complaint? Play flat ground courses, this is a foot hills course designed with playing it in natural terrain as possible. You’ll never change that at this course. In meantime, Post aeration, the greens are fantastic shape. Many rough areas have been cut down or overgrown areas removed from streams on 3/7/13/18.This course is in best shape since early 2000,s when it first opened. Well worth a trip from anywhere in greater Charlotte area.
