    Course is in great shape tee to green. I took off half a star for the bunkers -- they had some gray sand and were difficult to play from. They no longer have the nice fluffy white sand from years past. From one of my old reviews, I use to think they had the best bunkers in town. No longer. Also, I had a similar experience to what one of the previous reviewers mentioned -- no using stray range balls. We were warming up (this is at 7:00am) and a buddy was finishing his bucket. I noticed a few extra balls from a leftover bucket next to him and so I grabbed a club to hit a few. As I'm walking up, one of the rangers walks past me and scooped up the extra range balls before I got there (didn't say a single word to us). Crazy. Never seen that before at any other course I've ever played. Say what you will about no freebies, but we were talking about 6 or 8 range balls -- what is that about $1.50? It's not like I was up there to practice and sniping all the balls I could to avoid buying a token. I think it's safe to say that's no way to encourage return visits.

    DrSchteeve at 7/12/12 2:37pm – Keep in mind, when it happened to me I did e-mail the course superintendant and got zero response. They do seem to go out of their way to treat customers poorly.
    TheClaw at 7/9/12 9:33am – B-man, maybe try and contact the club to get their side of the story (should be good)? Customer service is such a big part of the golf experience and they are clearly lacking in that department. Would be interesting if they man up and apologize for going a little over board or if they try and defend themselves. Their reply could dictate whether or not I ever go back there.
    DrSchteeve at 7/7/12 7:51pm – A friend ranks Olde Sycamore 50th in Charlotte because of their attitude. My current program is to raise a finger to the course every time I drive by to play Charlotte National, Eagle Chase, or Red Bridge - courses where the people in the clubhouse (and on the range) actually appreciate their customers and treat them that way.

Anyone been out to Red Bridge lately? Heard they about lost their greens a while back?
