Eagle Chase Golf Club


"Great course"

11/3/22: Review by Golfmusician

Played Eagle Chase for the first time yesterday. I had heard about the elevation changes, but I wasn't expecting as much as I saw. If you're a straight hitter, you'll have no problems here. If not, plan on losing balls. The Bermuda rough can be brutal, and if you get in...

Revolution Park since renovation
    • #3389

      Had someone ask me today about Revolution Park. It was renovated last year and renamed Dr. Charles L. Sifford Golf Course at Revolution Park.

      Anybody played it since the renovation and have a review?

      I never played it because I got the sense it was just a beginners’ course.

      I played Revolution about three weeks ago. The green complexes are beatiful. The fairways were awful. The course needs more TLC before I’d return

      Revolution is okay. They have several Par 4s. I wouldn’t necessary call it a beginner’s course, more like that midway point of beginner and almost intermediate. The stepping stone if you will.

      I still play there every once in a while because, it’s fairly cheap and convenient when you want to get in a quick 9. Longest hole is the 9th, at about 430 or something.

      Fairways are usually beat up, but the practice area is flawless. The chipping, putting green and range are some of the best around town.

      I played here a lot before the renovation and it was not good. Boring design, poorly conditioned but I could walk 9 before work for $8. The redesign made a lot of improvements to the layout and the green complexes. Much more interesting. Still a handful of parallel fairways and I have had some weird experiences like six-somes, people popping out of the woods to sell you golf balls, one-armed golfers (he was pretty good considering) Earlier this summer the greens were in excellent shape but the conditioning of the rest of the course is standard for Ratcliffe Golf. (Sunset Hills, Renaissance, CT Myers)- just not good. The practice area is shared with the First Tee of Charlotte and it excellent. Price has increased – it is not the bargain it used to be.

      Awful does not begin to describe the condition of some of the fairways. 9 is about half clay, broken up by weed mounds that I guess they don’t mow to make the fairway look green from a distance. And 1 was underwater during the heavy rains a few weeks back and had a huge deposit of dirt parked in the middle of it. (For about a week 1 has additional water hazard, complete with geese swimming in it). So why play there? Well the greens are hard and slow but amazingly consistent. And it is still extremely cheap (though not the deal it once was) and close to uptown.

      Hahah that’s too funny. Yes, you WILL encounter a guy with dreads rolling around on a bike trying to sell you a bag of golf balls. Like clockwork, he just pops outta nowhere when you lease expect it. lol

      That’s Willie. He’s been there for years and part of the character of this course in my opinion. Nice guy just looking for a buck or 2 for some balls. I always buy a few and tease him that the balls have been under water longer than the Titanic…
