    Last week was Charlie Sifford’s birthday (June 2) and it reminded me I hadn’t been out here to the course named in his honor in quite some time. Fun to be back. Sifford is a cool little par 35, 9 hole track that also hosts the First Tee of Charlotte — there was a clinic going on as we teed off. The course is not long at all — though the par 4 opening hole can almost reach 400 yards from the back tee. The rest of the holes give you options to cut corners — especially #5 and #8, which are drivable for players who can hit high fades over trees. The two par 3’s are not easy either — #3 has a bunker protecting the right half of the putting surface and #7 is a long downhill shot to a large two tiered green. The closing par 5 requires a carry over a ditch for your tee shot then a careful uphill approach that can’t miss left or right. It’s an inexpensive, quick 9 hole trip. The course was in lush shape tee to green. The greens were not fast at all but rolled true. So get the speed down and it was fine. I’ll be back for another 9 holes again soon.
