Little Greens, May 31, 2006
|reviewer: Will Dixon

|Oh my. I just played the course with the new holes (1 & 2). The new holes are far superior to the original 1 & 2. They feel like they have been there forever and are much more challenging. The slope is 135 from the Blues despite being only a few yards over 6,400 so you better bring your A+ short game. Tiny greens with tough breaks and punishing short side consequences. Course was in great shape-- rough was spotty in places but the fairways and greens were immaculate. A must play if you are going to be in Charlotte. I agree with the other reviewer-- find a member.|

Classic Donald Ross, Jan 28, 2004
|reviewer: CGCC Golf

|This course is short in yardage (6200), but plays much longer. One reason is that there are only 2 par 5's on a par 70 track. The par 3's are classic Ross. 3 of the 4 can play over 190 yards to postage stamp greens. There are a lot of down and up style par 4's, but there is also variety. Holes 10,11 and 18 are good examples of tough, well thought out par 4's that demand accuracy and thought. A four is an excellent score on all of these holes. The course is generally in excellent condition and has undergone some minor renovations. You will notice that the greens are exceptionally small, even for a Ross course. Greens are properly protected with bunkers and have just the right amount of undulation. One designer has stated that these are the smallest greens he has ever seen on a Ross course (which may be its claim of distinction among the many Ross courses). There is a premium on iron play and short game. Greens are quick, but not penal. Everyone thinks they can bring this course to its knees, but it usually is the other way around. The course can frustrate you if you expect too much too easily. This is what makes it such a wonderful place to experience the brilliance of Donald Ross. It is private course, so find a member and enjoy...|
