"Worth playing"

6/22/24: Review by Ace

Another solid round of golf at Charlotte National. The course is crispy and the greens are quite firm, but that is to be expected with the lack of rain recently. The greens did roll true and pins were in some difficult positions - several pins were just a couple yards on...

I cannot believe I failed to practice what I preached. I posted a note a few months back about always asking about aeration when you call to make a tee time – REGARDLESS of the time of year. I called last week to schedule a tee time at Verdict Ridge. I get there today (11/9) with my brother who came up from Columbia just to play this course I was raving about. I first played Verdict Ridge 10 years ago when they opened and have not been back until today. Usually too expensive for me, and quite a drive. We get to the first tee, and I notice the #1 green looked a little light colored from a distance. I thought hmmmm that’s weird, but did not think anything about it. I hit a great tee shot, then hit a wedge to the front section of the green. I get to the green and to my complete shock, they are aerated and sanded, apparently very recently.

I have been mad on the golf course many times, but this was more than just anger, it was extreme disappointment. I have been talking about this course to my brother for years, he finally comes up to play it for the first time, and this is what we get – surprise surprise!! I somehow managed to hole two long birdie putts, but it was mostly luck.

To all the course management or maintenance that frequent BMAN’s site – you have got to find some way to warn golfers about adverse or unusual course conditions. When players call to reserve a tee time, could you please update them on things such as aeration or temporary greens? I really don’t think that is asking too much. Hint – treat potential customers the same way you would want to be treated if you were calling.
