"Worth playing"

5/20/22: Review by Jonny

The last time I played this course was in 1999. It was somewhat new at the time and built on re-claimed property from a land fill. I was most impressed by the driving range and practice area for chipping and putting. Nearly every course I have gone to in the CLT area...

      I played The Divide on 4/1, and I was told the greens were aerated on 3/13. Dissapointing – they definitely did not putt like they were aerated almost three weeks ago. The greens are a long way from healing; they actually looked and putted like they were aerated a few days ago. They need at least another two weeks before they roll true.

      12/14/07 Divide is in horrible shape. Emerald Lake, Old Sycamore and Charlotte National all look like Ireland compared to the Divide. $60.00 for no yardage in the fairways; very inaccurate GPS, slow carts,leaves everywhere and poorly maintained greens and tee boxes.

      Anyone played the Divide in the last few days, weeks, or so? what kind of shape is she in?

      I think we are playing it this weekend, and I never have played there before. Any tips (“besides keep it in the short stuff”), blind shots, etc?

      Thanks!

      Played The Divide today (7/25/08). The greens were slow again – I see a trend there. I don’t know why they will not cut them to be faster. Maybe it has something to do with the heat during the summer. Very strange to have to really pound the ball to get it to the hole. Unless you have a downhill putt, you’ll need a bazooka. I hit 13 GIR, 0 birdies. I probably left 10 birdie putts short of the cup. I once left a 15-footer 6 feet short. Next time I’ll use a driver to get the ball to the hole!

      Played last week 8/2/08 …Fairways nice..Greens pocked up from irons into them…Still overall not bad. I think this course is pretty easy. It’s pretty much wide open and short. Nice course to score on.

      Played the Divide yesterday (9/21). Pace of play was pretty slow, but they did have a best ball tourney right in front of us. The group in front of us tried to go for the green on 18 on their second shot… crazy (had to wait about 15 mins before they all dropped on the second landing area). Anyways, the greens were faster than expected… with a lot of brown spots on them. Rough was thick and fairways were okay, some hard spots on a few. Bunkers were in decent shape.

      Been playing here quite a bit since it’s cheaper. We get an email almost on a weekly basis. Played Sat for $39 at 11am. It was pretty wet from the rain on thurs/fri, but it wasn’t bad. pace of play was slow! Divide is one of the worst about pace of play… their rangers need to monitor the course better. there were a bunch of 2somes which could’ve been joined into 4somes. but i also blame the cart path only rule… but still, we waited up to 10 mins on some holes. bunkers still have rocks scattered throughout them.

      I played The Divide on June 13th. We were delayed by 20 minutes from our original tee time and the groups were stacked up all day. All in all we had a 5.5 hour round and the conditions were pretty bad. The greens were soggy and were really tracked up around the holes. The tee boxes were horrible– what little grass was growing on them desperately needed to be cut. The bunkers were among the worst in Charlotte– some with standing water, some with 2 feet of course beach sand to slog around in, 1 with perfect white fluffy sand, one that had gravel in it, and the rest of them were thin and crusty. Several of the holes were double cut so that there was a rim of loose dirt around the edge. Fairways were okay but a bit shaggy. The only positive was the ranger and beer girl. Ranger was really nice and helpful with our disfunctional GPS– the beer girl was an 11+ on a scale of 10 and charming to boot. I get the feeling that someone has cut the maintenance budget at this track by 50%.

      There are some good holes out there on this one but I would wait until they get there act together from a maintenance perspective before I played again.

      Played there last week and I forgot to post a review. I agree with John, the greens were great (color was good and they rolled well)! Haven’t played there since March when the greens had brown spots. Def will go back for a round soon.

      Tega Cay update: not sure if anyone goes out there from this site but they are almost done resodding all 18 greens and are hoping to open back up early November. They are using Mini-verde, a bermuda hybrid which allows them to cut the greens short to allow them to roll fast. Hoping for the best… Also, they are making changes to a few greens to make them wider and more playable than before.

      Played yesterday (10/4) and the greens look like they’re about to go bad. At least half have spots that have been colored green with fertilizer or something. They seemed a bit dried out and super fast. Fairways and rough were good though. Rough is nice and thick… lost a ball on one of the par 5’s b/c the rough was so dense. Bunkers are 50/50… some are hard with rocks and some are nice and soft. Pace of play was great! Hope something can be done about the greens…

      Has anyone played there recently? I’m curious how the greens are looking. They were beat up and patchy the last time I played it.

      Course is usually junk and overpriced. When you see a good post about this course I suspect it is an employee trying to sucker some rounds of golf. Go to Emerald Lake, Old Sycamore or Charlotte National, they are in the same area and in better condition and better priced. I wouldnt chance it.

      Don’t understand why they can’t maintain a nice course when they are on the Carolina Trail.

      I played out there today with a group of 10. This was my first time so I cannot comment on the greens in the past but they were ok today for the most part. There were a few greens that were a little bumpy, but not bad. I paid $29 on Click It so I did not think it was overpriced. I dont really have a review but I wanted to put my 2 cents in. It wasnt the best course I had played in Charlotte but it wasnt nearly the worst either.

      This golf course has come a long way since I played it last. I had not played this course in a few years. The tees and fairways are in good shape. The greens are good, but not perfect. There are a few that are a little bumpy, but overall they are good. I have always loved the layout here and it seems as though the course conditions are starting to improve.

    • #6547

      Has anyone played the Divide recently? I have a free weekday voucher for them but haven’t played there in about 2 years. Please let me know if it is worth playing for free now or if I should wait on conditions to improve.

      Thanks

    • #6549

      Haven’t seen any updates on how The Divide is looking. Heard they were in pretty bad shape financially. Wondering if anyone has played there recently?

    • #6551

      Played this course on 4/7. This is the first time I have played it in several years. I found it to be in the usual winter shape like most courses in the area. Thin fairways but the greens were in better shape than what I remembered them to be in. I really enjoyed the round. Although not my favorite course I enjoyed it enough to want to play it again when things green up. Pace was good and the staff was very friendly

      Played The Divide on Saturday 10/18. The recent reviews are accurate – the course is really showing signs of dramatic improvement. Good job by new management to turn things around. And the green fee was only $40 for prime time. Time to put this course back on my play list.

      Played at The Divide on 6/6/15. The course is in decent shape as far as fairways are concerned. The greens looked good and were very consistent, but they were extremely slow. They had been cut, just were cut high for some reason. Very different from all other course I have played this year.

    • #6557

      Haven’t played the Divide in a few years because of the conditions but it is the closest course to me and I wanted to give it another try this Friday afternoon. Anyone have an update on the conditions and is it worth the twilight rate? My expectations are low but hopeful.

    • #6559

      Two reviews got posted within an hour of your message board posting. Both reviewers were brand new to the site. So take the reviews with a grain of salt. I heard an anecdotal review from a friend who played here last week and he gave it an average review. If your expectations are low, I think the Divide will meet or exceed them. If you like the layout, it’s probably worth giving a shot. If you want really good conditions, take the 20 minute drive to Red Bridge or the 10 minute drive to Olde Sycamore.

      I have played The Divide a few times over the past few months and it is much improved. The greens are much better (but slow). Fairways are ok but some places thin. Tee boxes were pretty chewed up on a lot of holes. Bunkers are definitely improved. Pro shop and staff much improved (now that they are being paid). I would still put Charlotte National and Emerald Lake above it but The Divide has closed some of the gap and given the layout (which I like) it is back on my play list.
