Does anybody know how Charlotte-area golf courses fared during the storm? Any damage that could disrupt or prevent play this weekend?

Eagle Chase is always a welcome addition to the rotation of courses that I play. If it wasn't for the time it takes me to drive there to play, I would play there far more often. It's a completely different style of course than you will find any other place in the area. It gives you a mountain course feel with the elevation changes and slopes and is a test unlike other courses in the area. Having said that, they are making their way through some of the same issues that have plagued other courses in the area over the harsh winter. However they are handling the necessary recovery efforts better than most courses. Roughly 5 to 6 greens had some form of winter damage that they have worked hard to repair. Of those greens there were only 2 that I would call "damaged" currently. However the sod they replaced and the aeration and top dressing is taking well. All but 1 green should be 95% healed within the next 2 weeks with a little rain. Having said that, the course staff does an EXCELLENT job of placing the pins in unaffected areas of the greens and still making sure your experience is pleasurable. Fairways are very well maintained and course conditions are as good as any around. When the greens on this course are healed, they will be back to being some of the best (as they normally are) in all of Charlotte. It is well worth playing. If you are the type however that gets easily frustrated at conditions that are not pristine (even if due to acts of nature) then hold off for about 3 more weeks before playing it. But if you are the type of player who recognizes a good course, understands how conditions change and appreciates a staff that takes care of you and does the best they can to get the course back in the tip top shape it almost always is, then give it a shot and make sure to go in the clubhouse afterwards and tell Wally and the staff that they are doing a great job with the hand they were dealt. It is an excellent value for the course you always get. It's a great mix of holes and strategy that you don't use on most other courses. Appreciate the views and give it a go !
