    I am playing in a 9-hole Twilight Golf League every Wednesday here. I’ve now gotten play both nines. I really enjoy this layout and consider the 4-hole stretch from No. 13 through No. 16 to be one of my favorite in Charlotte public golf. The views from the 13th and 14th greens and the 15th and 16th tees are very cool.

    With that said, the conditions for late April are just kinda okay. The greens are fine and have rolled pretty true. They are medium speed right now. We are playing after 5:00. So we get the slowest speeds of the day, I’m sure. I didn’t see any issues with the putting surfaces.

    Speaking of the greens, though, they are huge. So you can get some really long putts if you don’t hit your approaches to the right section of the green. The course also has hundreds of bunkers and most seemed to be in good shape, though by the end of the day, we encounter some questionable rake jobs.

    The tee boxes were not so great though. Very chewed up and some were pretty bare. The fairways, green surrounds and rough were hit and miss as well. So like I said, the course feels like it’s in average shape right now.

    My league runs through the end of May. So I’ve got 5 more weeks to play it and see if conditions improve a notch.

    One note, I had heard the rates had gotten over $100 here. I’m only paying $39 for 9 on weekdays. So that’s about a $78 rate during the week. I checked their online booking engine for tee times next week. Sure enough, the peak rate on Sat/Sun morning – $109! Wow. That’s outrageous.

    I love the layout here and when the conditions are pure, it’s one of my top 10 public tracks. But with the average conditions right now (at the start of peak season) and those prices, I’d look elsewhere for your weekend round.

FYI - Tega did a deep verticut earlier this week and didn’t have it mentioned on their website. Rode down there today to get a road round in while Skybrook recovers from aerating only to be completely disappointed. Got a rain check at the turn…give it a couple weeks...
