"Worth playing"

1/30/24: Review by Golfmusician

The course is in pretty good shape for the winter conditions. There was hardly anyone there because it was cart path only. HEADS UP! According to the pro shop, it will probably be cart path only through April.

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"

    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.

    "Worth playing"

    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 back

    "Great course"

    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.

    "Worth playing"

    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!

    "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.

    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.

So I'm the new guy here. I've been doing a lot of research on the Charlotte area golf scene since I'll be moving there in the near future. I noticed the online booking for Eagle Chase GC matches what the rates use to be $48/$65/$72 (M-T/Fri/Weekend).
