"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...

      Played Charlotte National on Saturday. Right now the course is in great shape. The greens are outstanding: very consistent and smooth.

      Since you played them both recently… how does the condition of Charlotte National compare to the condition of Emerald Lake right now?

      Course conditions are similar. I would say the greens are comparable, with Charlotte National’s being slightly faster. However, Emerald Lake is preparing to aerate theirs. You should call to inquire before booking anything there.

      Played Char. Nat’l this weekend (1-22-06) and the course is basically under water. Greens are in good shape but need to really dry out. Course does not drain well at all, standing water on fairways and greens, 8th and 18th fairway were completely underwater. Before you play, make sure you inquire about the drainage and how wet the course actually is?

      Bman,

      Your review of the Charlotte National Golf Course was spot on. The greens were in the best shape of any course I’ve played in the area this year. And they’re lightning fast and very tricky to read (better get a view from both sides of the hole!).

      I’d rate this course a B+ overall. The conditions are “A” caliber but the course is a little visually drab and the layout could use a little more variety — you have to use driver on almost every par 4 hole.

      Thanks for your reviews and keep ’em coming.

      The great thing about the finishing two holes is the 17th favors a fade and the 18th a draw.
      I play a draw so on the 18th I aim to the right of the far 150 yard marker. The carry is probably around 230 yards to make it over the water (from the back tees) and over 290 to push through the fairway.
      If you cant make the carry then aim for the two mounds at the end of the fairway to the right you will wind up with under 200 yds.
      Hope this helps.

      Played Charlotte National yesterday. greens are in good shape for being in a drought and paying only $30 (with discount card)this place is the best value in town. i did stop by fort mill wed and asked about the greens (since i saw all the sand) i was told they just airified and reseeded. big mistake in august. i used to work on a golf course and there is a reason most places wait until sept to do this (heat and humidity.

      Played this course yesterday (1st time)a day an 1/2 after heavy down pours in Charlotte. However with a very nice day the next day and an even better day the day we played, the course was still soaked!! Drainge seems to be a problem here. The only thing that was good was the true greens. Also with water on almost every hole its best to bring some extra balls. Not real impressed, especially for the price. Better deals and courses at Monroe CC and Stonebridge.

      For this time of year, greens and fairways are in good shape. As usual, the rough is nasty here. Great value.

      Just wanted to post that Charlotte National has aereated their greens. Looks like it had just been done. If you call ahead Vic and Robby will let you know how they are filling in. Lots of sand on them right now.

      Charlotte National’s greens are pretty much gone. There were a couple that were still in good shape but most were burnt up with sand patching dead spots. Rest of course is ok but like others, their greens are dying.

      The course is greening up nicely and the greens right now are in very good shape. They have some speed and roll true. Just wish more players would take the time to repair their divots and ballmarks.

      Played for the first time at Charlotte National in over a year on Saturday 7/9/11. Course was in good shape except for the bunkers – some had little to no sand. Greens were recently mini-punched, and unusually slow. They rolled well, but you needed s sledgehammer on uphill putts. As for the clubhouse, still a trailer, so there still really isn’t one. After 15 years in business – if the trailer continues to deteriorate, they will be forced to either build a clubhouse or shut down. At some point something has to give. Very strange situation for such a good course.

      Aerated on Monday (8/24) and Tuesday (8/25).
