"Great course"

5/25/22: Review by aimtobreak80

Background: First time in 5 years posting a review; 6 month's since playing following a year of health issues; and 3 years since last (recorded) play at Skybrook. Observations: Addition of two, new restrooms on the course is a BIG improvement; trap's and bunker's conditions...

      A friend and I are coming down to Charlotte from Ohio April 15-17. We plan to play Birkdale twice and The Tradition and Skybrook once each. I experimented using the Carolina Trails to get tee times 7 days in advance. All the courses seem accessible except Skybrook. Is it better to call that course instead? If we can’t get on Skybrook, can you recommend any other courses? We’re staying at the Country Inn and Suites near the airport and would prefer to play west through northeast of Charlotte.

      Great site, by the way.

      Thanks for the note, Jim. Yeah, give Skybrook a call and see what they can do. It’s definitely worth playing and probably my favorite of the courses you mentioned. I have to pass along the recommendation I get very often — though I haven’t played it yet — and that’s Verdict Ridge. I hear it’s beautiful, kept in great shape and very challenging.

      Good luck.

      Highland Creek is better than Tradition, in my opinion – and in the same area and price range. Much less crowded, in better shape, nicer course, etc. I would switch your Tradition to Highland Creek or Rocky River. Skybrook, HCGC, and Rocky River are all nicer than Tradition.

      I would like to hear more opinions. Recently I’ve heard several bad reviews of Rocky River and my last trip (granted it was 9 mos ago) to Highland Creek was disappointing.

      EA — have you played either course recently?

      Love the site and knowledge B-Man

      Yes – I have played Skybrook, Highland Crk and Rocky River within last two weeks. I play Highland Crk, Skybrook, Rocky River and Tradition often because I live up here. I am not positive how they are comparing to other courses in the area as I stick to northern trail and this area usually.

      However with these courses – Rocky River had some serious issues with their greens last year but they seem to be much better now. Some of the greens were totally gone last year but they are back nicely, I heard they made some changes with the superintendent staff. Highland Creek I like because it is challenging, tough but fair course, relatively easy to get on, and people have a nice attitude. Highland Crk was in not so good shape last year but it seems like ownership was not investing in any of these courses last year much. It looks better this year. They recently aerated the greens but they are back to normal now. I like Skybrook the best but it is overpriced for what you get. They have had and have brown and bare spots in fairways. Rocky River does not have GPS / yardages on the carts which is odd in this day and age but I like the course, and it is typically in good shape – minus the green issue from last year.

      I am down on Tradition because it is over crowded, slow, and the staff have borderline rude attitude often. But I have not played there recently. I like Birkdale, the only down side is the electrical lines. It is a nice course in good shape.

      EA ratings of Northern Trail area courses below –
      Skybrook and Birkdale T1
      HCGC and Rocky River T3
      Tradition 5
