This 18-hole Arnold Palmer designed Championship golf course has been voted the “Best New Golf Course in North Carolina”, one of the “Top Five Public Courses in the State” and Charlotte's “Best Public Course”. Located on 200 acres of rolling terrain, carved between tall pines and natural streams, Birkdale is a challenging 7,013 yard, par 72 course made up of Bermuda fairways and Crenshaw Bent grass greens, offering a true test of golf skills.

The practice area includes a 10-acre lighted driving range with Bermuda grass tees, short game area and putting green.

Birkdale has several meeting and reception spaces including two conference rooms that are ideal for small meetings and lunches. The Palmer Pavilion is a perfect choice for wedding receptions and large events.

The entire perimeter is lined with French doors allowing for an open, outdoor feel without ever going outside. For more information contact the golf shop at 704.895.8038.

  • Course is in terrible shape. The greens are awful with divots that haven't been repaired and sand patches so bad that you can't even putt. Highly disappointed.  more »
  • I usually play a fair amount of golf in Minnesota and when I had a chance to play a quick 9 in NC...I couldn't wait! The first night I went to the course I arrived at 6:15 to find the clubhouse closed...  more »

  • The past grounds crew was successful! New crew has been a bit shaky. But the course is a fantastic design and layout! Greens could be in a lot better shape but I'll give the new crew time! They just need to pay attention to easy detail like cleaning up the grass shavings!!!! They could lower adult prices but junior prices are great!
  • Course design is as expected, risk reward, however course condition is poor. The course needs attention, either invest in the maintenance and improvement, replace the Superintendent, or both. It is a shame the course designed by Mr Palmer was overshadowed by it’s poor condition.
  • Tee boxes were in really rough shape. Very sad the course management has ruined a nice course. If it weren't for a work event, I would not pay to play here.
  • New management group as of July 3rd. Let's hope they restore this course to it's full potential. Great layout, just not in the best of shape. I have faith it will be best course in the area.
  • Unkempt course and run down facilities. So many nicer options in the area for the money. Only plus, Arnie's Tavern has good food.
