Living the Country Club Life
With four mild and mostly beautiful seasons in Charlotte, golfers can rejoice in the most beautiful of things – year-round-golf. And with over 50 courses in the region, there’s no doubt that you’ll have plenty to choose from on any given weekend. From fun public courses such as Charles T. Myers or Dr. Charles L Sifford Golf Course, to world renowned courses like the home of the Wells Fargo Golf Championship, Quail Hollow, you just might have a course in your own backyard. But if you don’t already – you still can! Check out these three gorgeous South Charlotte golf courses.
Ballantyne Country Club
This private country club came along while the community of Ballantyne was being developed by Smoky Bissell. Amenities include five swimming pools, 45,000 square foot main clubhouse, nine tennis courts, a 24/7 fitness center, and of course the crown jewel – the 18 hole course designed by Rees Jones. Located in the heart of South Charlotte’s most popular neighborhood, golfers can enjoy the exciting dining and entertainment options that Ballantyne has to offer.
Nestled between Charlotte’s popular Ballantyne neighborhood and the small, neighboring town of Matthews, NC, Raintree is a beautiful club featuring two 18-hole championship courses. Members are also included in the Private Club Network which allows access to over 200 private Clubs across the United States. Who doesn’t love vacation golf!
Raintree’s neighboring course, Piper Glen not only has a wonderful 18-hole course designed by the legendary Arnold Palmer, but the club offers a bevy of social activities including Golf Tournaments, Kids and Family events, Networking opportunities, and holiday celebrations.
