    I hadn’t played this course up to this point of the season, and noticed that no one else had posted a review in a very long time, so decided to give it a try. Talked to the course superintendent before playing, and he indicated that it would be dry because of the mini-drought in spite of watering every evening. Truth be told, other than the actual greens being a little faster than the practice green, and the tees being a little narrow (probably to restrict wear and tear?) I didn’t notice any detriment to play – the fairways were green and didn’t obviously contribute to a disturbing number of errant shots. The latter may have more to do with my, one real grievance with the course – an abundance of uneven lies, even in the middle of the fairways. I realize that there is not much that can be done to address this situation at this point in time, and any alterations would likely change the course’s “persona” and challenge. However, personally, it does become a little tiresome and irritating to have to constantly deal with it. Beyond this, minor pet peeve, I heartily recommend the course as a good golfing value. The greens fee ($30 Senior rate, $39 standard) includes a lunch from their “Turn Menu” – sandwich, chips, and fountain drink (posted $7.50 value, and they don’t skimp on the amount of sandwich meat). I challenge anyone to find a better deal in the Charlotte area.
