This was my first time playing Ballantyne and from the reviews, I went in with high expectations.
The facilities are top-notch, from the greeting to the putting greens- very nice. The range I thought was laughable due to its limited hitting slots, but that it nit picky. The putting greens were nice and rolled nicely as well. The tee boxes were very brown and crisp. The greens were rolling well, however the ranger said the course was under water Tuesday and Wednesday which would explain why they looked bad. Fairways were in nice shape, few dead spots.
The course is somewhat tights and the small greens make for a challenging test of golf, especially if you do not know the course.
Overall the course was in good condition, I don’t see myself playing much very often due to the steep weekend prices, but $59 weekday rate is certainly doable.
Certainly one of the nicest courses in the CLT area.
