Myself and a friend are lucky enough to have tickets to the Weds practice day at Augusta this year, and will be travelling via Charlotte from the UK. We’d like to play some golf in Charlotte Thursday 6th April, watch the golf afterwards (do most clubhouses have TVs?) then stay locally. Can anyone recommend a course we will be easily able to get on in/around Charlotte, or even on the way down to Columbia, and where we will be able to hire some clubs?
Any help would be really appreciated.
Charlotte has only one true resort and resort course – Ballantyne, which is fine as resorts go. If you want to get more local, you can stay downtown at one of many hotels – the Westin and Ritz Carlton are great high end option – and then play at the better high public daily fee courses. These include Verdict Ridge, Olde Sycamore, Carolina Lakes, Edgewater. There are others and you can look at the course reviews on the site for reviews.
