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,...

      Heading to town with a group of 16 for the Pats/Cats game this weekend. We have ONE day to golf (Saturday). We have a mixed crew with guys who shoot in the 90’s all the way to guys who shoot in the 120’s. Money is not an issue. We are looking for an upper class track that isn’t excessively tough or super long. Wide fairways, elevated tees, spectacular views, and beverage carts are all major plusses. Basically I’m looking for somplace that will impress some of the more experienced golfers, but not be too tough for the beginners. Looked into Skybrook, but found out the greens were being aierated (sp?) which is a MAJOR turnoff. In researching a number of places, it seems that Regent Park & The Divide seem to really come close to what we are looking for. Any suggestions or comments?

      Regent Park is a little better than the Divide in terms of overall conditioning, but I think it is also more difficult. The Divide features slightly more foregiving fairways, but the greens are a little less consistent. Check with the courses about aeration, because September is a popular time for that. A few more courses you may want to investigate are Highland Creek near the university, Birkdale, and if you really want a beautiful but tough course, Verdict Ridge. Verdict Ridge may be the most scenic course, but it’s a little bit of a drive.

      If money is no object, go for Ballantyne Resort. That’s a great conditioned course with all the amenities and it’s not all that difficult. I did just play the Divide last week and it was fine. They don’t aerate til October. Generally speaking, I’d say the Divide is overpriced compared to others around town.

      Last I heard (a week or two ago), Regent was in OK shape. They had recent problems with burned out greens, but have mostly recovered.

      One last one to consider is Emerald Lake. I hear it’s in great shape right now. It is very playable for all skill levels.

      Check out Olde Sycamore. Reminds me of Regent Park. I understand they “punched greens” about a month ago, so they should be in good condition.
