Highland Creek Golf Club
This 18-hole Championship course, designed by Clifton, Ezell, and Clifton has been rated both the best and the toughest public golf course in the Charlotte area. Designed with extra care to preserve the natural beauty of the area, Highland Creek Golf Club winds through towering trees and meandering creeks. The neighboring community surrounding the course provides an upscale backdrop set well back to offer plenty of open space.
The course features Bent grass greens, Bermuda fairways, four sets of tees measuring from 5,080 to over 7,000 yards, 67 bunkers and water features on 11 holes. Highland Creek offers all golfers an enjoyable round. The par 4, 9th hole calls for a very precise tee shot to a narrow fairway. Any miss-hit, shot left, will find the creek and can definitely add up to a big number. Although the layout may be challenging, it is set amidst some of the most picturesque golf holes in Charlotte.
The practice facility at Highland Creek includes a driving range, 12,000 square foot putting green, chipping green, and practice bunker. The 15,000 square foot clubhouse has men’s and ladies locker rooms and a restaurant with full bar. The dining area has wonderful views of the 18th hole and surrounding lake, which always makes a great setting for hosting golf tournaments, outings and corporate events.
