Sapona Country Club is a semi-private golf, swim and tennis club. The rolling hills of the 18 hole par 71 are both tranquil and challenging. The course was designed by Ellis Maples & Ed Seay in 1968. It features well-manicured and tricky, sloped Zoysia grass greens.
Affordable membership plans are available for all age groups. The restaurant and 200 seat ballroom are available for private events: weddings, business lunches, dinners, cocktail receptions, golf tournaments, and more.
I played this course for the first time in late 2021 for an event on TheGrint Tour (and won my flight!). It is an easy drive up I-85 North and less than an hour from Charlotte. The course was in great shape and the greens, in particular, were slick and challenging. The layout features tree-lined fairways amid rolling hills and slopes that will challenge your uneven lies game. While the course is semi-private, it offers great rates and course conditions to the public golfer and so I've added it to the listings here. I will post a formal review when I get back for another round this season.
