The course is carved out of the woods with most fairways open enough to put some zing on your tee shots. But if you end up in the woods, it can be difficult getting out and saving par – or bogey! The front nine is flat and easier than the back nine. Holes 3, 4 long, and 6 are the most difficult on the front side. The back nine has some minor elevation changes and has arguably the three most difficult holes: 12, 16 and 17. The longest hole is #17 at 461′.
The course is very popular and it is located in central Charlotte. Benches at most tees. Course features mulched fairways carved out of a heavily wooded area. Slight elevation changes, with mulch mounds accenting elevation. 1997 World Championship site.
