    From the time I pulled my vehicle into the ‘bag drop’, I knew I was in for something out of the ordinary.

    A young man immediately picked up my clubs and put them on a cart and instructed me to the ProShop.

    There I met Jacob who got me checked in and I was smiling with the news that my Monday round of 18 holes and a cart would only be $55 bucks, what a great value!

    I made my way to the driving range to hit some complimentary balls and also test out the putting/chipping green.

    My group of 4, was able to tee off right at 1140a with an assist from Mike T, the Starter.

    I will say, this is a very challenging course. There is a lot of changing elevation throughout and a fair amount of water that comes into play on a majority of holes. There is a creek that criss crosses throughout and some small ponds as well.

    You’ll find the fairways wide open, however you’ll be challenged for ball placement as the majority of fairways will funnel to the creek or water.

    The greens are very fast, they are undulating and generally small for the most part.

    The views are amazing! It’s built in a development with Million dollar homes that line the fairway and circle around the green complexes.

    There are adequate water stations scattered throughout and there is bathroom at about hole #8 where they have cold face towels in water
    that will refresh you.

    I didn’t try the food but I did check out the menu and it looked like a good mix of hot and cold options.

    Even on a Monday it was very busy and our round of 18 holes took about 4.5 hours. It was tough with 93 degree temps and 60% humidity.

    Just a few nits that were not major but a bit disappointing.

    Even though they had a food/beverage cart parked by the Club House, there was no one to operate it.

    In several areas, you will be confused on where to go for the next tee box because there is no directional sign.

    The carts were all gas, not a single electric cart and they struggled getting up the steep hills.

    The pace of play was longer than expected, not a big deal when the weather is great but when it’s 90+ degrees and humid, you will suffer as there is no Ranger to keep things moving.

    This is a semi-private club and only members are allowed to play Friday to Sunday.

    Overall it was a five star experience, sadly it’s quite a drive from where I live in Fort Mill but I was glad to check this one off my most of the B-Man’s top 10 CLT area courses.

FYI - Tega did a deep verticut earlier this week and didn’t have it mentioned on their website. Rode down there today to get a road round in while Skybrook recovers from aerating only to be completely disappointed. Got a rain check at the turn…give it a couple weeks...
