Olde Sycamore Golf Plantation


"Average"

9/16/22: Review by KirklandSpecial

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,...

    "Great course"

    Have been playing here on & off for nearly 40 yrs. I’ve found it very hard to top… especially if you like golfing where it’s calm, clean, & neat with decent patrons around you. Much like the town of Maiden itself, Glen Oaks is a nice, relaxed family oriented facility where prices are reasonable. It’s actually a better bargain than all of its neighboring courses.. especially ones in the Statesville direction. The facilities here are top notch.., the clubhouse is relatively brand new as are the Golf Carts which are always spotless! Like many older courses that started small and evolved Glen Oaks has a few odd holes for sure… however I consider that to be ‘character’.

    I tend to rotate my golf on 5 to 8 area courses. Have played here around 3 times per month for the past 10 months. There has been a lot of labor put into the course in recent months and years.. and last late summer the fairways were pretty good. The layout of the course is different for sure with several strange holes. Having played here quite a bit this spring the #1 issue with the course is wear & tear. Never played any course in my 55 yrs that is less monitored! Folks park within 3 yards of numerous greens and park on many tee boxes! The place has less cart control than any course I have ever played! Due to this the ground is compacted and any grass in these areas is struggling! The bent grass greens are pretty good.. but many are very slick. Approach shots that land softly on the greens can end-up 10 yrs off the greens due to the above mentioned issues! The course has lots of potential, if only it had more & thicker grass!
