"Worth playing"

7/20/24: Review by The Don

Thought the layout was challenging, a fun Arnold Palmer design! Staff was very friendly, and course was not too busy even with a weekend tee time. it had rained a little the night before and course did not drain well. The lack of driving range is a minus, however the staff...

      Imagine if more courses were walkable. Example instead of the $55 green fee with cart on the weekend, to walk your fee would be $35. Too few quality walkable courses has everyone paying more for golf than they should in my opinion.

      You simply cant walk places like Highland, Skybrook, Birkdale.

      That’s what I’m talking about. I use to walk Torrey Pines for a twilight rate of $6. In pro golf, greed rules. Part of the problem with golf in Charlotte is the NASCAR mentality, and the inbred desire that thinks if it’s expensive, then it must be good. We’re so far from the game’s original intent, I won’t start.

      Regarding the posts about prices and walking, I think there are still good values around, especially for walking. A few courses that I would consider walking to get a reduced rate:

      Monroe CC
      Charlotte National
      Stonebridge
      Fort Mill

      Borderline / Restricted walking policies:

      Charlotte Golf Links
      Olde Sycamore
      Emerald Lake

      Walkable but already a bargain and conditions not always great:

      Larkhaven
      Charles T Myers

      Courses I would never walk:

      Regent Park
      The Divide
      Renaissance Park
      Skybrook
      Carolina Lakes
      Red Bridge
