Larkhaven Golf Club
Extremely well groomed!
Saturday was my first experience at Larkhaven and I must say I am extremely impressed! Most courses in and around Charlotte this time of year are in moderate to poor condition. At Larkhaven, it was as if we were playing golf in the midst of mid spring. Extremely lush fairways and meticulously cared for greens. While everything else us dying of and turning brown, the grass at Larkhaven was a deep blue green in the fairways and expertly cut might I add. The greens...IMMACULATE..some of the best green conditions you will find in this area! Overall I would and have recommended this course to all my golf loving family and friends!

Great Winter Course For Price
Great Value, Greens Medium speed but roll true, Very Tight Fairways, Great ball striker course.
Only bad thing, no range, I like to warm up for an hour before I play, but that is the only reason its not 5 stars. Will play here 3-4 times a month.

The course is great shape with overseeded fairways. The greens are good. The best-conditioned course in the Charlotte area this time of the year.

was in great shape eventhough we had to waite out the frozen ground we had a ice storm the day before but had a good time played poorly but found 2 new golf buds

Great all round course.
In our area it had been raining 4 to 5 days straight. I did not want to play because of mud and water everywhere. This course was absolutely wonderful. I can imagine what it will be like in the spring. Absolutely beautiful course.

Fun and mature course in great winter condition.
I walked the course on a cold rainy day. The course was in the best condition of any of the 6-8 courses I've played this winter. Nice greens and overseeded fairways. This is a mature course with nice natural-looking ponds and wooded areas. The course isn't long, but the dog-legs and changes in elevation make it challenging. I can honestly say that this was the funnest course I've played all winter.

The was entirely green (overseeded with rye grass), otherthen that, not one worth my time...
>The greens were inconsistent, but for the most part slow
>Many holes that are circus-like (not a friendly lay-out)
>No driving range
>Poor putting area

Only course in the Charlotte market that overseeds in winter.
Smooth bermudagrass greens. Fairways are in great shape.
Pace of play a bit slow but due only to volume of play. This place is BUSY.
It is an old school golf course. Not difficult but not a "bashers' course either. The greens are small contoured.
Plan on playing many times in the future.

Course was in nice shape would play again. Great value for the money

This course is one of my favorites by far.
The course offers easy to moderate to challenging holes. The elevation changes can either play into your hands or become your worst nightmares. All greens are well maintained to allow for exceptional putting opportunities.

One of the oldest courses in charlotte. Some short holes shot makers course. One of only around that overseed with rye, love it. Cant beat the price.

Great Value, Course is in very good shape
One of the few courses around Charlotte that overseeds for winter. Fairways are green & lush. Greens are weed free & beautifully manicured. The only course I play during the week that has a marshall tending the course.

Love This Course!!!!!!!!! Great Value!!!!!!!
I play this course once a month or so, and am always impressed with the course condition. Fairways, tee boxes are green as they can be for early December. Greens in good shape, but a little slow.
Do yourself a favor, and play this course soon!

Overseeded fairways make Larkhaven great in winter
The course is always a challenge because of the elevation changes and doglegs but the course is in really good shape which makes it even more fun.

Course is in great shape for this time of year
Fairways are green unlike all of the other courses in the area and the greens were in overall good shape but playing a little slow. It is a decision making course with some scoring holes.

We all enjoyed the course
It was the day after a holiday so we did not get all 18 holes in--we got 14---it was pretty backed up but I guess that was expected. This was the first time we played here and we really loved the course, the price was excellent and the grounds were in very good shape. Will definitely come back and tell our friends about it.

The cousre was very well maintained and the staff was very friendly
The greens were in very good condition. Although there are many trees on the course the leaves did not inhibit your ability to find your golf ball that didn't land in the fairway. I also found out that you can walk this course which seems to be a rarity in NC. Oh the fairways are in very good condition too!

Green fairways when all other courses in Charlotte are brown
Larkhaven is a good course, not too challenging but it takes some work to keep the ball in the fairway. Several 90 dgree doglegs make this medium length course play longer. This course overseeds the fairways for the fall and winter, making this a green course year round. The greens are improving in November, they had been in pretty rough shape since the summer.

Nice to see green fairways in mid November.
Good shape with more attention to some of the greens. Overall, the greens were consistent.

They have some of the best fairways in the winter months

good layout, great value
Nice traditional layout. Some tough par 4's and some good par 3's. Greens are a little slow but the overseeding is to blame there. Could do a little better job on leaf pick-up. Overall, nice track. Need to keep the ball in the fairway.

This course was in impeccable condition especially for November. The greens were lush and expertly maintained. The fairways had a beautiful lush blue green look and seemed as if they just cut the grass for our group. Overall this course is by far the best value in Charlotte. A $90.00 course for half that or less if you book through Golfnow. I will definitely be returning to Larkhaven... very soon!

One of the few courses the over seed. Greens are shaggy right now but will be PERFECT in a couple of weeks. You need to play before 10:30 on Tuesday and Thursday to get ahead of the mens group

Not even worth the money I mean the greens were.terrible. how can you manage the game if u can putt on the dried up grass. And that's an understatement. Maybe its change now but they didn't water the grass all summer and the green was like putting on dead dried up yellow grass

Love the layout.. UPDATE the greens !
Terrific layout and nice amenities like re-sodded t-boxes and good sand in the bunkers. Plus, well-manicured fairways. But the greens are just too slow and not cut short enough. I think it's time for Larkhaven to invest in Dwarf Bermuda like other courses in the area have.

Great Course Great conditions
Course is in excellent condition and plays well. definitely worth the price

This course is not worth a 5 minute drive
I took 3 of my good friends out this course just to try something new. 2 of 3 said they would never go back. The par 3's had temporary te boxes and were all under or near 100 yards long. I wil not be going back.
