    This place is like home to me -- maybe because it's near my home (5 min away). Mostly because this is where I go to practice -- it has a practice chipping green cut like a real green with a large greenside bunker to practice your sand game. It has a large putting green and a bag of balls is $6 ($5 if you have one of their annual discount cards). It's also a very friendly and walkable course -- so if halfway through your practice you decide you wanna go practice on the course and play 9, it's very easy to do. The staff is the friendliest around when it comes to squeezing in a single or a walk-up group that just wants to get out and play. I played 18 today as a walk-up single around 1:30 -- $25! Try to beat that anywhere in town for a weekday afternoon with cart. They had me join a twosome that was just teeing off. Had a great time with those two and we made it around the course in less than 4 hrs. The Sunday Ultra Dwarf Bermuda greens are now in their second season and are consistently in great shape. Charlotte National has very large greens so having a smooth consistent surface helps alot for those long putts. The grass type even has its own website (go check out http://www.sundayultradwarf.com/). The rest of the course will probably never be top tier for Charlotte. And that's okay (esp. at these prices). The tee boxes, fairways, rough and rocky ground surrounding the trees and brush off the fairways leave something to be desired. You're also out amongst the farms and backroads of Union County. So the aesthetics are definitely more rural than suburban. You may get some ultralight or propeller planes flying over from Goose Creek Airport nearby (one crashed on the 8th hole several years ago on a day that I played there!). Charlotte National kinda is what it is. So depending on your tastes, it may not fit you, but for me, the golf and the price keep me coming back.

The Divide closing for greens renovation this month

By The B-Man on 8/5/20

Great news for The Divide! The course was approved for a $350k greens renovation starting this month. The greens will be sodded with Diamond Zoysia grass, the same as Eagle Chase in Marshville (and those have been good year round). The work starts next week and the course...
