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,...

      OK, here is my beef with golf in Charlotte- golf here just takes too *%#$ long. I have NEVER played a full round here, at any major course, that took less than five hours. Why is this? Speed your game up people. Tee shots and approaches should take no time. Don’t dawdle. Spend your time, if you are going to spend it, around the greens. I was playing behind a group the other day, and a guy asks if we want to play through. Very nice of him, however, he says “Would you like to play through, we are just taking our time.” No you’re not. You are taking everyone else’s time. Since you “paid your money” you are NOT entitled to fool around as long as you like. Rangers need to have the nerve to send people home or put them in “time out”. Large warning signs should be posted at the first tee that says “You will play briskly or you will not play at all”. And why is walking not allowed ever? Anyone who says it is because of “cart fees” wasn’t there when I offered to pay the full price of a round, just not ride the cart. I was turned down. Why? Pace of play? It doesn’t seem to concern anyone any other time. I also think the average golfer places too much emphasis on course conditioning. We demand it here in the US, and they give it to us, in exchange for ridiculous green fees and slow play. The biggest travesties in town are Renaissance Park and Charlotte Golf Links. Those nonbelievers in the crowd should play a round in Ireland or the UK. Once you did, you would come back and realize how ridiculous golf in the US is. Bottom line, speed up or get off the course.

      Try Crowders Mountain. If I get there at 5:30 (June/July) I can play 18 and there are few people there.
