Eagle Chase Golf Club


"Great course"

11/3/22: Review by Golfmusician

Played Eagle Chase for the first time yesterday. I had heard about the elevation changes, but I wasn't expecting as much as I saw. If you're a straight hitter, you'll have no problems here. If not, plan on losing balls. The Bermuda rough can be brutal, and if you get in...

Any of the courses you listed have nice practice greens and it is free to putt! Chipping areas is a little more complicated. None are ideal but Springfield and Fort Mill are ok. Again, free to chip! If you are just banging balls I would suggest one of the places on South Blvd south of I-485. There are two places and they give you about 100 balls for $10 9also have cards that save $$), but there putting/chipping areas not that great.

Of the four you listed I would say none are overly “beginner” friendly. All have challenges and can cost a lot depending on what day of the week you play and your age. I would check out some of the Radcliffe courses. They are not as nice but can get some good deals at certain times and are pretty beginner friendly (that is where I start! ed). I would also suggest Charlotte National. Very wide open and good for beginners if you play the right tee (gold). Charlotte National is much better than Radcliffe courses, has some reasonable rates in the afternoons, and has friendly staff and golfers who don’t mind playing with beginners.

Finally, your first step should be to find a good pro to give you lessons. It will eliminate a lot of the upfront frustration and make the game a whole lot better. don’t invest in nice, shiny clubs, invest in lessons!
