"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...

You’re welcome, beginnergolfguy. I hope you enjoy learning and playing the game.

A few tips on courses — I think Revolution Park, Charles T Myers, and Charlotte National are among the best courses for beginners. And better yet, if you want to start with an executive course (all par 3’s), you can try Pebble Creek in Indian Trail. That’s where I learned to play and built my confidence over 15 years ago.

Also, for the rest, I think this is a good topic with some good advice. Playing as a single is something I do quite a bit — for mostly personal schedule reasons. Either it’s last minute and I can’t find a partner before I get to the course or I’ve got only so much time to play and need to play fast. In those cases, it’s ve! ry appropriate to tell the pro shop or starter that you’d like to play alone or have a time constraint. You might ask to start on the back nine or another hole where they have a gap. You just have to keep in mind what 5putts said and realize that they may not be able to accommodate you — since it could mess up pace of play for their other guests. In these situations, you just have to accept what they offer and not take it personally if they decline. Also know that it might change during the round. You may catch up to a 2-some or threesome that is stacked behind several full groups. In that case, it makes sense for you to join that group rather than keep pushing up against them every hole — because you’re not going to play through that many groups. So the biggest advice if you want to play as a single is be flexible.
