Birkdale Golf Club Course Review
A hidden beauty in the heart of Lake Norman. Sometimes overlooked by Donald Trumps masterpiece just a few miles away, Birkdale is a beauty in its own right. Offering golfers a surprisingly immaculate practice facility, and a very nice golf course, you really have a steal when you make your way to the Birkdale Golf Club at Lake Norman.
Offering full access memberships for $115 per month, Birkdale is the best deal in the Charlotte area. When you become a full member, you will have full access to the practice facilities, which include a very cool putting green that wraps around two trees, a grand short game facility, and a driving range that goes on for days. Any aspiring golfer should give Birkdale a shot, and the practice facilities are not even the best aspect. The golf course is supreme, and the layout is very unique. Combining a Links style with the traditional layout, they really did it right with this course. About half of the holes are links style, and it provides a really neat atmosphere going back and forth between the two different styles during your round.
The par 5s are mostly reachable in two shots, aside from the 8th hole, which is a bit of a quirky sidewinder through the trees. Scoring is definitely out there on this track, and it comes quite often. The course is Bermuda throughout, with Bent greens which leads me to my only negative. The bent greens just cant make it through the summer, and they are already burning out and beginning to die. Aside from the summer, the greens are actually very strong, but the summer is all that matters in the golf industry. Dont let the greens hold you back from this semi private beauty, because this is truly worth playing.
