The Ballantyne Resort Golf Course in Charlotte, North Carolina has been dubbed as among the PGA’s finest layouts in the region. This 18-hole golf gem is set in a dynamic terrain that was perfectly crafted into Piedmont’s natural hills. The golf course designers cleverly routed this amazing masterpiece in a wobbly rolling piece of property to give the course a unique distinction. From inception, the golf club has been persistent in obtaining various citations from reputable periodicals including the “Top 100 Golf Resort in North America & the Caribbean” by the Conde Nast Traveler readers.
This par-71 tree-lined golf layout also features the five sets of tee boxes challenging enough to test every golfer’s ability and handicap levels. From the back tees, golfers have to go through a 6,735-yard play with a course rating of 73 and a slope rating of 133. And from the white tees, there will be a solid mixture of the long and short par 4’s with the manageable 127 slope rating. The layout’s 4th hole offers the 3rd longest par three but can be played as the course’s second easiest. The 16th on the other hand was designed for the lower handicappers and has been considered as the layout’s 6th most difficult. If you are looking for the golf course’s signature layout, that would be on the 10th.
Aside from the challenging holes, guests can also take advantage of the resort’s professional putting greens and driving range. The golf club also offers the upscale Golf Shop as well as the advanced Z Golf Custom Club Fitting Shop. For large gatherings, the resort has the impressive pavilion perfect for any kind of ceremonies. For guests who want to take golf lessons, the Dana Rader Golf School is just located across the base range.
