We had the opportunity to play the course several times during our recent stay in Charlotte. The staff was courteous and the course was in great condition. We found the price very comparable with courses we've played in other areas. The practice area was very nice.
As an average golfer I had trouble with the rough and very fast greens. My husband didn't have the same issues with his better game. Overall we both thought the course was excellent.
We definitely will play it again when we are in the area.

I played with a group of friends from work for the first time in early September and found the course to present a real challenge for the weekend golfer. The grounds crew has the course in excellent shape and the greens rolled true all day. What makes it a difficult course is that even if you hit the ball in the middle of the fairway of the te box, on many of the holes the ball will end up below or above your feet which can make the approach shot very difficult. For a low handicap player this is not a problem but for a higher handicap golfer this is one of the toughest shots to hit accurately. #18 is a great finishing hole, just make sure you take enough club to avoid the water when you hit into the green!

They hosted an event for my company. I highly recommend them for this. The staff was easy to work with and they made sure the details were impeccable. My group loved the cocktail hour and dinner we had. The billing was smooth as well.

Very well maintained golf course. Worth playing if you're in the area. Good place to take clients for a round of golf followed by a nice dinner in the club.

I had the chance to play here last week and absolutely loved it. The course is in great condition and the grounds are beautiful. You can reach several of the par 5's in two.. Definitely take some extra time on the putting green as the greens are super fast. Only concerns besides the greens was the cost for the driving range balls. Way too expensive for a course that is charging over $80 a round. That should be included.
