Hidden among the farms in Union County, Charlotte National winds through the woods, with no neighborhood homes to intrude on golf. This course opened in 1996 and has a very diverse layout, with the full range of challenges: length, water, elevation, wind, and fast greens. The greens were redone in 2018 with Sunday Ultra Dwarf Bermuda grass and they are now consistently good year-round. In 2014, the course replaced their longtime trailer clubhouse with a modern, spacious clubhouse and full-service grill. The club hosts a very popular annual event called Margaritaville -- sign up early if you'd like to participate.
This course is very friendly and accommodating to all golfers and groups. Easy to get out as a single and they will often suggest a different starting hole for you so you can fit in with the groups on the course and enjoy a good pace of play. The twilight rates and weekday specials are the best value in Charlotte.
Fun course, off the beaten path. Good mix of difficulty throughout the round, but the last 3 holes are brutal. This course is kept in very good shape and the greens always roll true. My favorite hole is #15, a long dogleg left par 5 with a second shot over a creek and a big tree in the middle of the second fairway. I have a few hell holes on this course, including the closing 3 holes, but the one that always seems to get me is the #1 handicap hole, the long par 4 #5, with water on both sides of the fairway. The 18th can play like a short par 5 with water guarding the dogleg left, often leaving a 200+ yard uphill approach to the green. I can count on one hand the number of pars I've made on the closing hole in probably 50 rounds of play here.
Finally made it out to play Charlotte National and absolutely loved it. The greens are pristine, even at this time of year when everything else is brown. The course is awesome and brings a good amount of thought into club selection and course management due to hazard placement, doglegs, etc. Really enjoyed playing out here where there isn't a house in sight and everyone was so welcoming. Can't wait to get out there again!Read The Review
Not the fanciest public course out there, but they do a really great job maintaining very good playing conditions. A few bare spots are noticeable off the fairways where rough should be, but other than that, greens and fairways are in very good shape. Tee boxes have the normal wear and tear on some of the holes. Always a fun course to play.Read The Review
First time playing here --- very impressed with the greens as the Sunday Ultra-Dwarf Bermudagrass is as advertised! Very smooth and they roll true. A good variety of holes and good risk/reward shots as well. Hard to get into too much trouble here. Enjoyed it very much and we'll be back again!Read The Review
Their greens are holding up nicely. There were a few isolated spots in the fairway that were muddy or washed away, but didn’t overly affect your shots. The course is worth a visit.Read The Review
Meh. A crowded Sunday morning as expected. Not a real welcoming vibe with what I assume is a more "regular" crowd. Decent driving range and putting green. Course was shaggy in many areas with greens being the exception and in good shape. Overall, an ok course, but many better tracks in the area.Read The Review
