Will be nonexistent once they put up apartments and houses where it used to be. The golf course and putting greens have grown over and haven't been used in several months. Used to be a lovely golf com... read more »
Regent Park used to be a top 10 course in the Charlotte, NC area. But 7-8 years ago, the current owners purchased it and ran it into the ground. They invested zero money in upkeep. They ran off all bu... read more »
This golf course has always been one of my favorites in the Charlotte area. The layout is challenging, but not unfair, the greens are very good - most courses have gone away from bent grass to the min... read more »
Was greeted by pro shop employee out front smoking with "wanna play?" He was pleasant enough but smoking by the door then smelling like a dirty ashtray while he checked me in wasn't very good. The place was a ghost town. I didn't use the range but it looked worse than any range I have ever seen...huge weeds and dirt. Wow! Anyway...I was given a "deal" on the fee. Little did I know that any fee would be too much for this place that I used to like. Don't know the details of what has happened here but the result is a terrible golf experience. Conditions were fair at best. No, they were pretty bad. The grounds crew don't seem know anything about golf as they were always driving by right when I was hitting. Never made an effort to slow down or be quiet so I could hit. Not sure they were even doing anything. Just driving around. Never saw them drop their blades. Bunkers were washed out. Areas were overgrown...badly. They obviously have no budget but letting the place go to hell isn't going to attract more golfers to build the needed revenue. You have to spend money to make money. And start by spending money on the bridges! They are in dyer need of repair and are borderline dangerous. Holes in bridges with big drop-offs covered in cheap plywood? Not cool. Someone is going to get hurt. And the cart paths are buckling everywhere. After 14 holes of being bounced around on a crappy course, I felt like I had been in a football game. I just had to leave. Too bad they have let it go so badly. Wish I could buy it and make it right again.
This use to be one on the best public courses in the area, until the couple from NY purchased it. The owners are rude, and obnoxious, imagine that, they are from NY. The golf course is in total disrepair, the tee boxes are horrible, the fairways bad, and the greens atrocious. It appears they put no money back into maintenance. Regent park had the best practice facility anywhere, that was the first thing they let go to hell. The practice facility mirrors the golf course, terrible. Save your money and yourself from the aggravation, go elsewhere for better service and conditions.
The reviews are pretty consistent with poor service and bad attitude. They overbooked on the second nine and both basically told us we had to deal with it. The starter was at the bar having a beer when we went into complain when he should've been out trying to keep the course playable and moving. There was nobody in the pro shop and then what appeared to be the chef came in with an attitude telling us to basically deal with it it's Father's Day weekend. What a poor way to deal with fathers. We went ahead and played the back nine twice because of the log jam on the first hole. Three groups on the first hole when we should've been able to tee off after finishing the back nine. When we pulled up to drop the bags off there was nobody there to help us with our golf bags. The concession was close when we finished at 3:45. I'll give you one star for the nice greens but that's it. This course need some serious training on customer service and how to deal with people.
I've played this course several times in the last few years since it's close to where I live. Their rack rate in comparison to other courses in the area is way too high and not competitive for what your playing. If it was not for some type of deal from various golfing websites, I would not play at regent at all. They recently hiked their range rate to $7 dollars a bucket for a handful of water balls, ridiculous. I understand the previous comments related to the attitude of the staff, I've had fellow colleagues relate their own experience and will not play at regent as a result. Recently played on a gorgeous Saturday around 80+ degrees, the course was overbooked, not a surprise. We waited on the first tee forty-five minutes past our tee time in order to tee off, four groups on the tee block. I called the clubhouse to request teeing off the back 9 in order to get this moving, we were told "no", 5.5 hr round. No concession cart on the course, at the turn there is a snack shack which always seems to be closed even on hot warm overbooked weekends. Not very business savvy. Here's an idea! Reduce your rack rate to become competitive, reduce your bucket rate. Place a concession cart on the course, open the snack shack on weekends and holidays. Even if the course is overbooked, people will generally be happy eating and drinking and the money made from the two will grossly out weigh gouging a few extra dollars from the rack rate and the range.
Don't waist your money on anything here. The new owners have not put any money in the place since they plan to get rid of the course and put homes on it. It's a crying shame because this course has great bones and used to be one of the premier public courses in the Charlotte area.
