Olde Sycamore Golf Plantation


"Average"

Tee boxes - above average Fairways - excellent Greens - below average Played the course more times than I can count in the last 5 years. The greens were the best the crew can make them, but more than half of them have dead spots. They put the flags in the best spots,...

Description

Opened in 1966 by Bob and Paul Porter, the River Bend YMCA Golf Course in Shelby, NC is one of the few YMCA owned golf courses in the United States. Designed by Russell Breeden, River Bend is a beautiful 18 hole course surrounded by the mountains of western North Carolina. River Bend utilizes many of the existing features of the area to provide a natural and aesthetically appealing golf course. The course features well-manicured Mini-Verde Bermudagrass greens and offers four sets of tees that allow players to encompass a full range of opportunities to enjoy the game.

Notes

Phil Wallace is the teaching professional with over 40 years of experience (and 1992 Carolinas PGA Teacher of the Year). The course offers VIP memberships for discounted rates and pre-paid rounds. Inquire in the pro shop.

B-Man's Take

This is one of the few courses on my site that I have not yet played. While the course is convenient to US 74 West, it is still almost an hour from Charlotte. So it takes a special trip for me to get out there. I have heard great things though and more local amateur tours have made it an annual stop on their tournament schedule. So I have a feeling I will play it soon!
