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,...

Good golf outside the area

      Charlotte keeps growing exponentially, so area courses get more and more crowded. I find it worthwhile to drive out of the area sometimes. For instance, played Cleghorn yesterday and from the time I left home to the time I got back was just less than 5.5 hours, 3 or so of that driving. I also find the rates for the quality of courses are much more reasonable. For instance, Emerald Lake – a $30 course now charging $62 on Weekday mornings. Depending on what side of town you live on, these might be some not already listed on this site that could be of interest…Olde Beau is listed here (80 miles from Huntersville) but you pass Cedarbrook on the way up…Same exit off I-77. Some of the best greens in the stateClemmons, NC area – Tanglewood championship course has gone through a renovation and is in fantastic shape. Site of the 1972 PGA. Has a second course as well, the Reynolds. Salem Glen (Nicklaus design) is also a great course as is Oak Valley (Palmer design) nearby in Advance, a bit closer to Charlotte.Tot Hill Farm in Asheboro (75 mins for me) is worth the drive once in a while. Mike Strantz designed this, he also did Tobacco Road. It’ll beat most anyone up, but a lot of fun.60 mins from 485/77 is Cobblestone Park Golf Club in Blythewood, SC. 27 holes of great golf with elevation changes you wouldn’t expect in the middle of the state. Fantastic shape and deals available on Golfnow.Been meaning to try Silver Creek Plantation and Marion Lake in the Morganton area, about the same distance for me as Cleghorn. Also Grandover Resort up Greensboro way. If willing to drive that far, there are also Forest Oaks, The Cardinal by Pete Dye, and Oak Hollow in High Point, another Dye design. I hear Winding Creek in Thomasville is nice too.
