"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...

B-Man's Take

Played this course the year it first opened and was so impressed that I make the trip a couple of times each season to play it. Edgewater is regularly featured in my annual Top 10 list of the best public courses in the Charlotte area. The greens are some of the best Bentgrass greens I've played around Charlotte and Edgewater is one of the few public courses to still have Bentgrass. My favorite hole is the short 429yd par 5 #17 -- my first two rounds I shot eagle-birdie on this hole! My hell hole was the seemingly benign 386-yd par 4 3rd hole. This dogleg right has a tall tree guarding the turn and then a lake that curls around the green -- it bit me twice my first 2 rounds. The staff here is great and you can get the low twilight rate ($30) after 2pm on any day. There are also coolers about every 3 or 4 holes on the course with free water bottles. The course is a bit of a haul from Charlotte, but fairly easy to get to if you come down Hwy 521 to Hwy 9.

    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 9 to get ahead of the slow foursome in front of us (7:40AM). Probably saved us 40-50 minutes

    "Worth playing"

    Golf course was in decent shape. Greens were nice but slow and inconsistent in terms of speed from green to green. Collars on some of the greens were chewed up and there were some places that were ground under repair. My groups biggest complaint was pace of play. Our tee time was 10:30 and we were told on the putting green that they were “at least” 30 mins behind. We teed off around 11 and we’re told to expect a 5.5 hour round of golf even though there were rangers on the course. I understand a 4.5 hour round but 5.5-6 hours to play is unacceptable. If you go, try being one of the first groups off to avoid the all day round of golf.

    "Great course"

    First time playing here in about a year and again I was not disappointed. Fairways, tee boxes and greens were in great shape. I think the greens are still bent grass and they were kind of soft so had to repair a lot of ball marks. They rolled pretty smooth but were definitely slower than Waterford, the course I play weekly. Staff was friendly as always and they had a ranger out keeping an eye on the pace of play. Definitely a top ten course in the area.

    "Great course"

    This was another GolfWeek Am Tour tourney round - so the pace was typically slower than normal. Carts were 90 degrees (yay) except for a few holes. Greens were in great shape, fairly quick and true, no issues. Bunkers are full of fluffy sand. The starter actually warned us to watch for balls landing in the bunkers because they were known to bury and disappear. We didn't have any problems, but the fluffy sand is definitely a change from other courses that have more hardpan or dirt than sand. Tees and fairways were thin and not great, but playable. Definitely still in winter shape. With the greens good, though, the conditions were fine and a little better than most. This is still one of my favorite layouts for scoring. The front nine begins and ends with two short par 4s and the par 5 17th can play shorter than the par 4 15th. The par 3's are difficult, however, especially #16 which can play over 200 yards to a perched green with a steep fall off left and bunker short. I didn't have a great day but I enjoyed the challenge and will be back again this season. Reminder: this is a great choice for a 36 hole day because you can hop over to the nearby Donald Ross track, Lancaster Golf Club, for a second 18 holes.

    Edgewater is one of my favorite course and again I really enjoyed it today. I wasn't aware that they had just aerated the greens 12 days ago and they were still very soft and not very smooth, had to repair alot of ball marks. My neighbor and I teed off at 10:30 we another twosome, great guys, and played the front 9 in ~ 2 hrs. They had only signed up for 9 so we played the back as a twosome and that 9 took 2 hrs and 40 minutes. We had a lot of holes with one group on the green, one in the fairway and two groups on the tee. We never saw the ranger on the back 9. The weather was beautiful so I really shouldn't complain. Again one of my favorite courses , cant wait for the greens to heal.

    I have been trying to play new courses lately, and I had heard some good things about Edgewater in Lancaster. I played Friday (11/27) and was pleased at what I saw. The course is a haul from Charlotte, and is literally in the middle of nowhere, but it's a good layout with very nice greens. It will take some getting used to - I hit what I thought were several good approach shots, only to have 60' for birdie. I three-putted four times from long range; the greens are huge, with some tough contours. And several elevation changes present challenges for club selection. Overall I was happy with the course. The greens rolled very true, and the course design presented some unique holes. It's a course that will take a few rounds to adjust to, but it's a good one.

    I played in the "Heat Stroke" tourney at Edgewater, and it was a treat. I enjoyed the course and the layout, and thought it was a fair challenge. The back nine was in better shape than the front, but such can be expected for a new course. The greens were terrific, and the terrain is at times breathtaking. Certainly worth the drive to check this one out, but it does take a solid 70 minutes from center city Charlotte. They have a great staff and are committed to working hard to bring players in like me, which I appreciated after being ignored at other courses.

    Though I haven't played there yet, I've read good things. I am on their e-mail list, and wanted to put the word out because they have a lot of fun tournaments going on to incentivize people to make the drive. Thought I would spread the word, so sign up if you're interested.
