"Worth playing"

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...

Too many courses??

      If there are too many courses then why are the prices as high as they are?

      Charlotte needs more walkable golf courses as well.

      Although they try, Carolina Lakes, at least this year, wouldn’t have met my expectations for an upper tier course. Conditions, especially fairways, when I played April/May were terrible. Red Bridge has a long way to go as well (clubhouse, driving range), although their conditions, including their greens (not bent, I believe), have been quite good, and they try very hard to please with their limited staff.

      I had another experience today with one of my favorite courses (I’m not going to name, since I think many courses would fit this description). I asked them their conditions, and they said they punched 2 weeks ago, but the greens had been cut and were “just a little bumpy”. Well I went and played (fortunately only 9 holes), and the greens were VERY bumpy, and in poor overall condition (not just the punching). Granted, they did offer a reduced rate, but I just don’t think you can get a straight answer no matter how you ask – the courses are just too hard up to get any golfer to their course given the economic conditions.
