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...
Larkhaven is in the best shape i’ve ever seen it! The fairways are great, its nice to play on green grass in the fall and winter, you can really tell this course is going to be one of best ones in town before long! They also have one of longest running tournaments in Charlotte coming up at the end of April. I think everyone should check this course out! Great conditions.
Played Larkhaven the other day. Course is in good shape with green fairways even in the winter months. Worth another play with early bird rates Mon thru Thur at $23 for 18 holes with cart.
Played Larkhaven today. The fairways are in good shape. Some of the teeboxes are rough with the worst being #9 (its totally bare). The greens are horrendous. Normally the greens here are a little hairy and slow but they must have aerated them or something (dont really see holes in them) there is sand all over. Very rough. I’d stay away for awhile.
Got a note from Terry at Larkhaven and he did say they had to punch the #3 and #8 greens about a week ago. He said they are coming along but still a little bumpy. He also said the rest of the greens were pretty good and invited me to come out and play their July special, $25 anytime Mon-Fri and after 12:00 on weekends.
I’m a bachelor this week and next (family drove up to PA to see relatives). So I may try to get out for a late round one day next week and see things for myself.
really surprised at what this course has done over the past year. fairways in great shape. greens pretty good (for bermuda). the bunkers had actual sand in them. looks like managment invested to make this course more playable. will be back next week to play again ($26 afternoon rate)
Played on 9/29 and the greens were very inconsistent. Some were cut and some were not. Made for very inconsistent putting from hole to hole. There seems to be two types of grass on the greens.
Larkhaven has reseeded with rye grass again this year. Everything is just as green as can be. I tried to play there around 10:30a.m. yesterday (Monday) and turned around and left due to the large line of people still waiting to tee off. Every hole in sight had gofers on it also. If conditions were like they were last year, this is probably the best public course in Charlotte right now. (with the exception of the greens being slow) Don’t attempt to go out here without a tee time and make sure you have time to play, that includes the week days.
I have to agree about Larkhaven’s conditions. They are awesome. It feels good to play a course with green grass and full plush fairways and Greens. The only problems are its an older style course ( though its not the best layout), the greens are slow, and they allow fivesomes. Why any ranger would let five people play together blows my mind.
