Olde Sycamore Golf Plantation


"Average"

Tee boxes - above average Fairways - excellent Greens - below average Played the course more times than I can count in the last 5 years. The greens were the best the crew can make them, but more than half of them have dead spots. They put the flags in the best spots,...

      This course opened in December and with another year of growth it will become one of Charlotte’s best and most challenging courses. It’s extremely hilly. Think Charlotte’s “Bandon Dunes.” The greens and bunkers are king-sized, which really throws off your ability to gauge distances. Yardage markers and white/red/yellow stakes are scarce, but I’ve been assured that they’re going to improve all of that soon.

      I played it twice today, once from the blue tees and one from the whites. Without a yardage book (coming soon, they say), the whites are tougher because you’ll find you need to be more accurate with the driver to avoid running through fairways. In fact, a great tip for anyone playing the whites is — leave your driver in the bag all day. Even when it looks safe, 3 wood is the right club.

      B-man — you’ve gotta give this course a try and add it to your arsenal of local courses. You won’t be disappointed.

      Played it on 7/12 and loved it. As noted before, markings are a little scarce and a course map is not available yet, however this is going to be a gem in a couple of years. Hole nine reminds me of something you would see at in Miami….bunkers, bunkers everywhere.
      The cost is a little steep compared with other locals, but the cost is constant. So if it is $58 on Wednesday then it’s going to cost you $58 on Sat as well. Aside from the cost, lack of a layout map and minimal course markings, this Sun City gets a major thumbs up from me!
      It’s incredibly spread out and just a fun and challenging course too play.
      Enjoy-

      I actually stopped by the Carolina Lakes clubhouse today on a whim. The course looked pretty nice from what I could tell, and the parking lot was about 60% full at 4:00 on a HOT Thursday afternoon. SOMEBODY knows about the place, it’s just not well publicized. Anyways, I stopped into the pro shop to inquire about greens fees. They told me it was “$63.13 exactly” all days, all times for non-residents of the community. Hope this helps!
