"Worth playing"

8/13/22: Review by GinMillDJ

Fairways were in great shape. Bunkers normal. Greens were extremely soft and there were a tone of ball marks that were not repaired. Fun course but a haul from Charlotte. Rangers did not do a great job keeping the pace of play on track. We skipped a hole on the back...

Description

This older public course in east Charlotte is straightforward and has a laid back atmosphere. Located on the former Harrisburg Road landfill, the facility bears the name of County Commissioner Charles T. Myers, who during his tenure (1969-1970), led the initiative to make the final use of this land a public golf course. The course was designed by renowned golf course architect Bill Love. It's a good course for players learning the game, especially juniors. There are a few ponds that come into play on 4 holes and plenty of bunkers too. In 2018, the course renovated their greens to MiniVerde Bermuda grass - the same grass at their sister course, the Dr. Charles Sifford Golf Course.

Notes

Home of the Impact Performance Golf Learning Center. Wide array of memberships offered, very reasonably priced. The course is managed by Ratcliffe Golf Services and is a sister course of Harry Jones (Renaissance Park), Sifford (Revolution Park) and Sunset Hills.

B-Man's Take

This course has really aged well and Ratcliffe Golf is one of the best management companies in the Charlotte area. The greens are usually very slick now that they changed over to Bermuda. The bunkers and water hazards can eat up strokes. Because of that, I think the course plays more difficult than its rating. My favorite holes are #18, a reachable par 5, and #14, a par 3 over a pond. The view from the 11th green is one of the best around town, especially when leaves change in the fall. My hell holes are usually #6, the #1 handicap par 4 with water along the right, and #8 a par 3 over a pond. The rates here are extremely reasonable and if you ever have a problem or complaint, let Del Ratcliffe and team know about it. They pride themselves on customer service and are great to work with.

    "Worth playing"

    It was a wet morning. Greens were super slow and lumpy (not true). Needed a mow badly. But conditions were good. Quite a lit of ground under repair and some standing water on some par 3s. But for the money, a surprisingly good round. Course itself is very forgiving of tee shot errors except on a couple of holes (#6 for example). I would play it again.

    "Great course"

    Green were in excellent shape. Fairways were in good shape. Dirt/clay bunkers - not ideal. Driving range area needs a lot of love . For a true muni course, very much worth the price compared to other courses with either the same or even worse conditions. Will start playing there more often.....probably will save me a couple hundred dollars over the summer.

    "Worth playing"

    I would highly recommend making and advance tee time or using their on-line website. They are understaffed and will you will be lucky if anyone picks up the phone at 7am or thereabouts when they clubhouse opens. I had an 8:16a tee time on 5/5/22 - Cinco De Mayo. I got paired with Hunter & Eva a couple who started playing during COVID. They had played the course several times before so they had good local knowledge. There are some blind shots off the tee. The Senior tee's give you no real advantage on some holes and on others significant advantage. They have a driving range but it's obvious they don't rotate the teeing area to keep the grass fresh. A small bucket is $6 bucks. There is a fair sized practice putting area. There were bare spots in the fairway. The tee boxes were all in good shape and marked well. The greens were rolling a bit slow and for the most part were in good condition with just a few with bare spots. The fairways are very open on most holes. There are fairway bunkers on nearly every hole and green side bunkers scattered throughout. If you go out of bounds you will be penalized severely because of heavy overgrowth and steep drop offs. I liked the front 9 much better. There is a fair amount of water and on 2 holes you hit over water on Par 3's which is fun. The clubhouse is busy and there was only one guy there when I played. He was working the register, answering the phones and serving food. They do have a porta-pots on each side. They have a nice covered picnic area with lots of tables if you decide to host a tournament. My biggest problem with this course was hole #9 (Editor's note: this is actually hole #18). The fairway close to the green is adjacent to the driving range. You will see dozens of balls in the fairway on the right side. If you land your drive over on that side 'good luck'. Stay on the left side of the fairway or use something other than a white ball.

    "Great course"

    First time out to Chuckie T. in about 4 years, and I wasn't disappointed. It was my first time playing their new greens and they were in phenomenal shape. Most of the rest of the course was similarly good. The back nine was nearly perfect as far as conditions go. The front 9 was very good, just not quite as nice as the back nine. Not a complaint, but just an observation. The greens rolled true and there weren't many ball marks to be found. Fairways were good with only isolated issues. Tee boxes were lush. Bunkers had a good amount of sand in them. The wide fairways and lack of rough make this a great course for all skill levels. Fairway bunkers are shallow and allow ease of escape. Greenside bunkers are much more challenging, as is the rough surrounding the greens. Pace of play was OK. Our twosome motored around the back nine (went off 10 first), but caught up to groups on #3 and it was hit and wait from that point forward. Cart fleet is showing its age, but are decent enough. Practice areas were well maintained. Staff was friendly and courteous. Course is taking COVID precautions seriously and encourages online payment and check-in.

    "Great course"

    My first time back at Charles T for 18 holes since last year's switch over to Bermuda greens. Color me impressed. The greens were great -- slick, true and consistent across all 18 holes. The rest of the course was in good shape as well but if you have not played since the new greens went in you will only be talking about the greens after playing. I really liked them, although being so slick now, there are some pin positions that should be outlawed. The front pin on #10 was diabolical. I saw 3 people in my group (myself included) putt from above the hole off the front of the green. It was comical but also not cool. The back left pin on #17 was also impossible to get close to or stop a putt coming from the right side. So either they nix those pin positions on some slopes or they've got to slow the greens down. Outside of that complaint, I'm excited about Charles T again. I've been meaning to get back and check it out and now I will be back more often. I used to consider Charles T one of the best deals in Charlotte golf and that was with bent grass greens that were sometimes slow or chewed up. Now with these awesome Bermuda greens and the same value pricing and great practice facilities, it's back in the conversation. Well done, Del Ratcliffe and team!

    Add Charles T Myers to the list of courses closing for some time this summer. They are replacing their greens with bermuda, just like Charlotte National. So they will be closed in July/Aug.

    Help me keep track of the courses closing for some time this summer:

    Springfield
    Mooresville
    Charlotte National
    Charles T Myers
    Larkhaven (permanently)

    Did I miss one?

    I played Charles T. Myers for the first time in 15 years this past weekend and the course was as rough as I remembered but fine for my purposes. I was playing with my 6 year old for her first time on a "real course with golf carts". I had planned on picking spots for her to tee off close to the green and was pleased when finding the junior tees. She loved having her own tees close to the green. It was also nice that she played for free after 1:00 (which is why I picked the course). Does anyone know of any other courses in the area with a similar set up?

    By the way, we were playing as a reward to her and I planned to play how ever many holes she wanted. To my suprise, we left after 17.

    Played yesterday (8/29), course is nothing to brag about. Very slow play, left after 9 holes because I could not be there 5.5 hours. A few greens were OK, but most were starting to get pretty bad. Very bumpy and chewed up for the most part. Overall the course is usually average, but nowadays it's not even that. You may want to give the course time to improve, so maybe try it in a few months.

    I've been playing C T Myers for a while now and this course is going down hill fast. It seems that they care more about building a teaching facility and a par-3 course than keeping up the golf course. Wonder who's getting kick-backs from all that money being spent? Ther are still empty bunkers that have been that way since the middle of the summer and several of the greens have more bare spots than grass. This course used to be a nice place to play, but it's not worth the money anymore and that's a shame. CT Myers could make alot of money, if they would just keep up the golf course and not the managing company!!!!!!!!

    I would have to disagree with Don. I played Chucky T's on 9/30 and the course was in terrible condition. Bare spots on every green and most of the bunkers had mounds of mud/clay piled in it. It hadn't rained in days and there were bunkers still with standing water in them. Of course, you do get what you pay for and my $14 round eased the pain of putting across ball mark craters and bare dirt/sand.
