Harry L. Jones Sr. Golf Course


"Worth playing"

5/20/22: Review by Jonny

The last time I played this course was in 1999. It was somewhat new at the time and built on re-claimed property from a land fill. I was most impressed by the driving range and practice area for chipping and putting. Nearly every course I have gone to in the CLT area...

Highland Creek closing next week
    • #3941

      Highland Creek sent a letter to its members this week that it is closing October 1st in an attempt to fix the greens. However, the letter did not say for certain whether the course will re-open. It simply said, “We will monitor progress and make a determination later in the fall whether reopening the course is a viable option.”

      I’m not optimistic. Courses usually have a definitive plan to replace their greens (typically with Bermuda) when they reach this age and condition. HC’s letter does not say they have the funding or support to replace the greens. So this sure sounds like the end of the line for what was once one of the more prestigious public tracks in Charlotte, in my opinion.

      Message on the Highland Creek website says they are re-opening on Friday, 11/23. All greens have been interseeded with A1/A4 bentgrass. I just don’t understand closing for two months to put more bentgrass on greens, when every other course in the area is switching to some type of bermuda. They are also touting ‘unprecedented re-opening values,’ yet their prices are still too high for the course conditions.
