This Tom Jackson designed layout is hidden in Union County not too far from Ballantyne. The course winds among tall trees and expensive houses, with ponds and creeks offering a few natural hazards. It's a challenging, tight layout where you need to be in control of your tee shots to play well. The clubhouse is impressive.
This course is now private and closed to public play. Find a member to get a tee time.
Played this course twice, a couple years apart. The course and the landscape were young and still growing. The pro shop ran out of a trailer. What a difference 2+ years made. The clubhouse is a beautiful 2-story mansion. The houses and landscape are now complete. I really like how it has turned out. It's a tight course, with little room off the tee for wayward shots, though a couple of holes run adjacently. There are sloping fairways, elevated greens, creeks and ponds, and lots of sand bunkers. You'll do better to play with a veteran your first time out so they can provide local course knowledge. There are a few blind shots and hidden hazards. Who says a short hole is easy? The 348 yd par 4 11th hole is devilish with its short fairway cut off by a hazardous ditch then with an approach to a tricky green guarded by several bunkers. There are several other dangerous spots, like the #1 handicap 378 yd par 4 6th hole with its tee shot over water and uphill approach shot. Another one is the 197 yd par 3 8th hole where anything right of the green bounces down into a hazard. My favorite hole is probably the 575 yd par 5 13th hole. A little dogleg right uphill then downhill then uphill again to an elevated green. I can really only recommend this course to above average golfers. For less accurate players, this course can be very frustrating.
