Olde Sycamore Golf Plantation


"Average"

9/16/22: Review by KirklandSpecial

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,...

      I will be visiting the area in the upcoming weeks. I was looking at playing either Verdict Ridge or Olde Sycamore. Any thoughts on which might be more enjoyable, in better shape, ect…, as both look nice on paper. Any thoughts and info would be appreciated!

      Verdict Ridge and Olde Sycamore are fairly different in terms of setup and difficulty. Olde Sycamore is a shot-shaper style course, with the driver not needed on most holes. It has a lot of dog-legs. The greens are usually in great shape, and fairly fast. Verdict Ridge is beautiful, but one of the toughtest courses in this area. The greens are usually very nice, but can be tough to putt because of the undulations. Verdict Ridge is a great course, but it will frustrate you if you don’t bring your A game. I play Olde Sycamore more because it’s more convenient. Verdict Ridge is a bit of a drive, but worth it.

      You might want to consider The Divide (704-882-8088). It’s fairly forgiving off the tee, and has three sets of tees to vary the course length. It’s one of the Carolina Trail courses, and usually in good shape. The greens are good, and very straightforward, without severe breaks on most of them. Some water holes and/or creeks, but not too many. Other possibilities are Emerald Lake (704-882-7888) or Charlotte National (704-882-8282). All three courses are within a few miles of each other off Interstate 485, and are considered good quality, semi-private courses. Charlotte National usually has great, but fast, greens. Check out the course reviews on this site to get a feel for what to expect.
