"Below average"

12/4/22: Review by Hunter

I heard they are closing for 8 months for a sewer project, hopefully they use that time to fix the issues. The greens are newer Bermuda and were fine (but fast and hard, I like those, some may not). None of the bunkers were playable. Full of mud/water etc. To be fair they...

    "Worth playing"

    Greens are showing signs of play. No one fixes ball marks...which is a shame because this is such a great course. Everything else was in good shape, with the exception of a few bunkers. Worth playing, but be aware of the greens towards the end of summer and fall.

    Great course...but greens were just punched. Very bumpy, which is a bummer since I have heard nothing but great reviews about that greens. Wish I knew that the greens were punched when I called for a tee time. Give it a few weeks...it's not worth the price right now

    "Never going back"

    Played 18 at Ballantyne Thursday morning, and wanted to play another round in the afternoon. Stopped here and figured it would be pretty well-priced for Thurs afternoon...wow I was wrong. $49!!! for a round on a weekday afternoon. This is ridiculous, but luckily I found a coupon for $28. This was just the beginning of this mess of a course. Tee boxes are non-existent...all weeds. Fairways and rough a also non-existent. It is literally all weeds or crabgrass, or dirt. Greens are without a doubt have higher grass than fairways. They are awful. The staff are rude...which may have to do with not getting paid. I would stay away from this trainwreck like the plague. Embarrassing.

    Well, its the Divide. Only reason I played is because we got a $25 online deal. For all of the rain, I was surprised how well the fairways held up. There were some bare spots on the green, but most ran true. Bunkers were non-existent...mostly weeds. The range wasnt open for some reason. The pace of play was quite good, probably because it wasnt busy. I would play here again if I get the same price, but wouldnt spend any more than $25.

    Perfect conditions from tee to green. This is one of the best courses in Charlotte, IMO. Never had a bad time at this course. Greens are some of the best I have played all year.

    This is my least favorite course in Charlotte. I got invited to play with a co-worker, which is the only reason I played. Ball machine on the range was jammed, and the range was like hitting off of sand. Tee boxes were covered in weeds and didnt seem to have been cut in a few weeks. Fairways were in ok shape, but brown grass clipping were everywhere. Greens were awful...it was like putting on shag carpet. Ball was bouncing everywhere and wouldnt hold any shots. You lose a ton of balls if you dont hit the ball right down the middle, since the rough and other areas on the course are extremely long and not well kept. I would avoid this course like the plague.

    "Best of the best"

    Best course in Charlotte, IMO. The fairways are 95% green and the greens are the nicest, truest greens I have played all year. The amenities and workers are top notch. Love this place!

    "Below average"

    Greens are in rough shape right now. The combination of bare spots, crabgrass, and hardness makes it nearly impossible to score well. The tee boxes were also full of weeds, and they seemed like they havent been cut in a week or two. The fairways had some weeds and bare spots, but nothing major. I will not be back to this course anytime soon, since it wasnt even worth the money and pace of play.
