20 Best Golf Courses in Charlotte, NC | Charlotte Golfers

This course has a very tough design with uneven fairways and extremely sloped greens, but it’s always in remarkable shape and is a great track to play.  Go here to get a country club feel.  As of 2022, Verdict Ridge is now only available to the public Monday-Thursday, and operate as a private golf course Friday-Sunday.   One exception to that is you can play on Friday’s if you show them your Charlotte Golfers Passport.  They are one of the few family-owned clubs around and are clearly doing something right!

A round here could be on the higher end for courses in the Charlotte area, but their twilight rate is hard to beat.  Depending on the season, you can play any day of the week for $39 (after 2-3pm).

When you play here once, it won’t be long until you get back out.  It helps once you know the course’s layout, and you’ll instantly fall in love.

Signature Golf Holes

#9 Par 4, 321yds, Handicap: 9 – Hit your 200-210yd club and aim toward the cart path on the left.  You’ll find yourself in the middle of the fairway about 100yds out.  Depending where the flag is, you can fly a wedge toward the massive ridge on the green and watch the ball trickle down.  Good look at birdie here.  If you have wind in the back, long hitters can elect for driver and hope for the best.

#18 Par 5, 515yds, Handicap: 4 – A very challenging finishing golf hole, this long par 5 requires an accurate tee shot.  Aim for the bunker on the left and you should funnel to the right of it.  A miss to the right is trouble.  Either way, play it as a 3 shot hole and be happy walking away with par to end the round.  I’ve only seen someone on in 2 a handful of times, so kudos to you if you’re one of them.
