Olde Sycamore Golf Plantation


"Below average"

5/26/24: Review by RT

Poor value. Fairways in good shape, with a few isolated spots, but able to play the ball down. Greens generally in good shape, with a lot of unrepaired ball marks. Speeds were consistent. Tee boxes are beat up. Bunkers not raked. Pace of play was just under 5 hours,...

      Moving to Charlotte in March from Michigan. Any suggestions on where I should play my first round?

      The course you play depends on what type of course you prefer. Down here you will have a lot of choices. I have played them all, and here are my favorites:

      1) The Tradition – my favorite course layout, tight fairways, very wooded, good greens, solid overall course, accurate tee shots critical.
      2) Highland Creek – well maintained, wider fairways, excellent greens, a little pricier, but worth it.
      3) The Divide – bigger greens, comfortable fairways, not as tight off the tees.
      4) Springfield, Waterford (south of state line)- great layouts, a little tougher in terms of approach shots. Waterford’s greens are about the fastest around.
      5) Fox Den (35 miles north) – one of my favorites since I shot 69 my first time there. Great diversity of holes.
      6) Verdict Ridge – the toughest course I have played in this area. Bring your A game, or you are in trouble.

      There are about two dozen solid courses within a reasonable driving distance of downtown Charlotte, so take your time in picking. Just check out the yellow pages when you get here. B-man web site is a good reference too. All of the ones I listed are semi-private, so the public can usually play anytime. Good luck, and welcome to Charlotte!
