New to Charlotte and bought the Carolina Trail so I could try many courses around town. So far I’ve been to Tradition, Birkdale, Divide, Waterford, and now Carolina Golf Links. I would have to say the Links was my favorite thus far, with Waterford a close second (the others a distant tie for last.) Course was in good shape, blue tee boxes were great, greens had many, many ball marks but almost all were fixed and green rolled well. It truly is a links style course except for approach shots (not possible to run the ball onto the greens). The best thing going for the course is that it is unique in how you have to play the “pot bunkers” from all over the course, fairway, greenside, etc. I still have Highland and Skybrook to play on the card but I’d have to say this is the best the Trail has to offer thus far.
