Good course

Good course. Challenging and interesting, but not goofy. Played in the Winter, but greens were in very good shape.

We were recommended to this course by Mark, the golf guy at Dick's in Charlotte. Mark led us astray. This course is a Muni track, owned and run by the city. We paid $69.00 for the round with cart, each. I wouldn't have paid $35 for it back home. Most of the tee decks were either under repair, or should... More

This beautiful course is near Charlotte Motor Speedway. It's been sculpted into the Rocky River wetlands and it's a memorable beauty. Every hole is unique and requires some thought. It's apparently been chosen as the best public course in Charlotte. I consider it one of the best public courses I have played. Very reasonable price. Great, friendly staff.

Played the other day for the first time with my Dad who was in town visiting. What a great golf course! Staff is friendly and attentive. The course itself is challenging yet fun...very well maintained for early spring. We played from the green tees which was a little tough on some holes but not too bad. I will definitely return...

Played today with my wife and usual golfing buddies. Had a flat tire on 16 and we called the clubhouse to get a cart. I was told they would try to get one out. After 15 minutes I called again and the person told me they would send someone out. I told him we had called 15 minutes earlier they... More

Course is normally in good shape. If you play green tees you will find it not too long and not too short. I love the layout. Only negatives, staff not the nicest in the world and the green fees are a little over priced, however if you are a senior the rates are 32.00.

Really great and interesting golf course in good conditions. Played it a few times during the last year and I always found good deals on golf now.

If you're into golf and racing, this place is meant for you. The drag strip and oval tracks are visible from the course and it is right next to a very large hotel (Courtyard). The course itself is tough enough for your average golfer just be sure to show up later in the year than March as the Bermuda grass... More

This is one of the best public golf courses I've played. The course is challenging for a duffer like me (31 handicap), and is beautifully maintained. I typically play in the late afternoons and never have a problem with pace of play. An added bonus is the wildlife you may see on and around the course. I seen Great Blue... More

This is a really nice public golf course. Wide open fairways here. The course has nice holes, is well maintained, has friendly staff, and is not too expensive.
