Olde Sycamore Golf Plantation


"Average"

9/16/22: Review by KirklandSpecial

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,...

      I’m considering picking up a legacy lifetime family golf membership with CT at about 1/3 price. It’s relatively cheap, but I’ve read some pretty bad reviews on IRI and the CT. I’m new to Charlotte and not that familiar with the courses. Thoughts?

      Just take a look at recent reviews for each of the courses. That should tell you all you need to know.

      Looking at those courses today, I think most people would say you were crazy. Who knows though, 5 or 10 years down the road and someone takes over the courses and gets them back into shape, it could make you out to be a genius. Its a gamble for sure.

      Thanks for the feedback izzf150. To get a better picture of what I’m looking at–The deal is basically $12k total for a family lifetime membership with the carolina trail… includes cart, unlimited golf range balls, no annual fee and it can be transferred later if I decided to sell.

      Why would you pay for spotty range conditions and spotty course conditions when there are so many great Charlotte public course options? You would have to pay me a lot more than 12k to play Carolina Trail courses. I live next to 3 (Highland Creek, Skybrook, Tradition) and I never play them – just too many other great public course options in Charlotte.

      At this point, Carolina trail has to know how they are viewed, right???
      Every review I read is the same negative feedback. It is amazing. I have only lived here 6 years, yet in that time these courses have turned to crap. I was actually just on Waterfords website as my bro and I got an ezlink time for Saturday. They still claim to have bent grass greens on the site.
      It is sad, but what seems to be even more sad is they still seem to operate as if they think they were Quail Hollow.

      Make no mistake about it, you will be paying 12k to golf on courses pretty low on the totem pole when in comes to quality of Charlotte golf courses.(and that’s a fact) You are gambling that one day things might get better. Looking at it today, it looks like a bad idea (and that’s what others are screaming at you). I really can’t tell you what to do. I know that there are people in this world that earn a nice pay check, 12k might not bother you as much as it would me. All I can do is repeat myself, your gambling on the future of these courses because today its not worth being stuck playing these courses.

      I wouldn’t dump any kind of money into a Trail membership. They are already in very poor financial condition. What makes you think they are going to be around for the long haul? Plenty of other great options out there, just search this site, visit courses, and even look at some of the privates. If I had an extra $12k laying around, I could think of many more ways to spend it on golf related costs. Just my $.02.

      Thanks for the feedback guys! I appreciate the honesty. There’s not much love for IRI or CT and that is obviously for a reason. I’m a frugal guy who doesn’t have the luxury to play golf and when I do it’s on the less desirable courses, so I thought this might be an inexpensive (in the long run) way to get back into it but it sounds like these courses may just be a long walk spoiled.
