Olde Sycamore Golf Plantation


"Average"

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,...

      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!
