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.
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.
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.
Course is in great shape all around except for a few areas under repair on a couple of greens. Starter is always a pleasure to talk to, the ranger was making his rounds frequently and was also very pleasant, even had a beverage cart come around twice which I don't always see here. A very positive experience except for pace. Took a smidge over 5 hours to get through 18 with no stop at the turn. People were late to early tee times which backs the course up immediately. We were constantly on the heels of the group in front of us while also having the group behind us pushing us as well. Have not had this happen before so hopefully it's an anomaly. Planning on going back soon so we'll see. Definitely worth playing though.Read The Review
I really enjoyed the layout. As a new golf who started this summer, the wide open fairways were welcoming. A very long par 3 (hole 17) from white tees (170 yards) was very challenging. Some shorter score-able par 4s are mixed in that help newbies stay in it mentally. Pace was very good and we had our own cooler with no issue. Will be backRead The Review
It’s a good track in good shape. Price is very reasonable. My biggest drawback here is there’s never anyone on the course to speed up play. We were behind 3 groups entire round with nobody in sight in front.Read The Review
It’s definitely not the nicest looking track in the area but for the price it is a great deal. I LOVED the layout especially from holes 8-17. Was still “winter” golf and a bit wet which was to be expected. But the greens were in good shape and the employees were welcoming. My only complaint on the course is hole #18. It’s a blind tee shot on a par 5 which I’m fine with but once we got to our ball we noticed golf balls EVERYWHERE. The range is situated that players are hitting directly into 18 fairway. Either they need to fix this or just not allow golfers to hit more than a certain distance on the range. Overall great experience and definitely will be playing there again!Read The Review
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.Read The Review
