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,...

      Gonna be in South Charlotte for a week babysitting my grandaughter. Want to play about 3 rounds of golf during the week. Probably be able to get onto Raintree with a member, but looking for some recommendations in that area. Single digit hcp player, 65 yrs old. Any suggestions? Thanks

      South Charlotte doesn’t have the best daily fee options. Make sure you check back on this site when it gets closer to your trip, as conditions in July can vary greatly at local courses. In particular, those with Bermuda greens are likely to be holding up much better than those with bent. Except for Ballantyne, the best courses are a bit of a hike from South Charlotte – Red Bridge, Verdict Ridge, and Eagle Chase are my favorites, and all have Bermuda greens.

      I agree with DrSchteeve that you should double check the reviews on this site closer to the time, just to make sure. To answer your question though, from past experience, and assuming you want courses around the south Charlotte area, I would suggest Fort Mill Country Club. Fort Mill CC seems to be pretty popular with the older folks, as there as seems to be quite a few out there every time I golf there. Fort Mill also allows pull carts if you are one to get a little exercise with your round. Carolina Lakes is another popular course with the older folks. It happens to be a course at a retirement village. The downside to it is getting a tee time. Every day of the week is busy out there (you know their all retired) and the early tee times go fast because they want to beat the heat. Ballantyn! e always get good reviews. I’ve never golfed there though due to the cost. I can golf two rounds somewhere else for the price of one round at Ballantyne. If money isn’t a concern to you, I would for sure consider Ballantyne. If you willing to drive a little further, I would suggest Lancaster and Edgewater golf courses. The courses just a little further away from Charlotte seem to be in a touch better condition because they don’t get as much traffic. The cost is a touch cheaper also. All of the courses that I mentioned to you in my opinion, in their worst condition have been no lower than 3.5 stars.

      I always recommend Olde Sycamore, Emerald Lake and Charlotte National to the South Charlotte golfer. Just a short trip on 485 headed toward Matthews/Mint Hill. Can’t go wrong with any of them in my opinion. If you choose National, be sure to call ahead to see if there are any outings.
