Harry L. Jones Sr. Golf Course


"Worth playing"

5/20/22: Review by Jonny

The last time I played this course was in 1999. It was somewhat new at the time and built on re-claimed property from a land fill. I was most impressed by the driving range and practice area for chipping and putting. Nearly every course I have gone to in the CLT area...

      Agree with the latest assessment (5/1/09) and wanted to stress the conditions of the greens. I played 4/25/09 and these greens, on this day, were my favorite of any I’ve played in Charlotte, ever. They were super fast (ala US Open greens that won’t hold approach shots hit with pace), yet soft and overall very fair. They weren’t like concrete hard to the feel. Overall renovations are an improvement, as I played the last week the course was open in 2008. Having said that, this place remains a “treat” for me as I cannot justify $90 before 2pm on the weekends.

      Looking for recommendations for a reasonable course with similar greens if it exists in Charlotte.

      Haven’t played Ballantyne in a few years. The last time I went there was three or four months ago to just hit a bucket of balls. They blatantly said I could only practice there if I played there. I regained consciousness shortly thereafter and promptly left. They have also raised their Fri-Sat green fees to $90. Either they think Charlotte is Pebble Beach, or they do not understand Economics 101. I know the laws of supply and demand still work, but if they continue to treat customers in this fashion, God help them.

      Played Ballantyne Resport on Sunday the 16th at 2:30. Course was in great shape, but greens were the hardest and fastest I can ever remember seeing. In good condition, just would not hold anything. Only real gripe was price, $80…..and this was at 2:30. Have not played there in about three years, and it will likely be another three years. The laws of supply and demand I guess. Well, they may be supplying, but I ain’t demanding.

      FYI, Ballantyne Resort is running a special till the end of July. $40 for Sunday thru Thursday play. (after 3pm I believe).

      I played this past Sunday and they had a record amount of people on the course according to a few staff members. Needless to say, it was a 5+ hour round.

      Course in good shape. Greens were in good shape as well.
      Staff was excellent. Only downfall…speed of play. Brutal.

      WOW… Great shape tee to green, $80 but worth every cent.

      Wondering why it isn’t available to in the review list?

      Did not see a listing for Ballantyne Resort. Practice area very nice. Played on Saturday and greens are nice. Fairways brown but pretty good shape. Bunkers good. It was a little cool and cloudy and really few golfers out. I was with a friend, there was another single and the starter said we we were waiting for another single.

      I had been at the course hitting balls and putting for about 30 minutes. I saw one twosome go out during the 30 minutes. I ask the starter if we can go out as a twosome since no one else was around. He said no. I ask why a twosome with a later tee time was able to go out and he stated they paid full price. I guess we all paid the $45 discount rate so he was making us wait and sending us all out together (stupid). The fourth guy showed up and he sent us out a few m! inutes early (thanks). We played the first hole and then split up into two twosomes to play faster. Played a little under 3:00 hours. Good challenging course, but the starter is a a$@hole.
