    I have not played this course in forever, back when there wasn’t a clubhouse and they had a trailer. And the green on #1 was on the other side of the pond behind the present location of the green. It may have even been last century. I hadn’t gone back because it wasn’t in the best shape then but reading some reviews on here recently made me try again. And I’m glad I did.

    The course was in excellent shape, and it is much more open than I remember it. Lots of trees have been removed which I’m sure has helped improve the condition. This is still a course where you must position yourself well and was just as hilly as I remember. If you can’t control your ball well, you will lose a bunch of balls even with all of the tree removal.
    But the tees, greens and fairways were in fantastic shape, except for the common area between 15 and 16 as all of the rain this winter and spring may have contributed to it.
    The only drawback was pace of play (nearly 5:10) on a very hot day.

The August issue of my email newsletter is out today with a report on Charlotte's public courses with Bentgrass greens. Spoiler alert: some are not doing so well in the summer heat. Also, I make a last call for anyone who'd like to go to Whistling Straits and Erin Hills...
