Carolina Lakes is just south of Charlotte in Fort Mill, just off the Charlotte Highway, on the east side of the Catawba River, routed through the relatively new Sun City community. The course plays from 5,200 yards to just over 7,000 yards, our group of 12 handicappers plays from the White tees at 6,321 yards, 70.2/131, and find it most challenging. Parkland style of layout with tree lined fairways and through the community, and has matured nicely since opening in 2007. Shot maker's layout where accuracy is more rewarded than length, a good amount of water and sand, and a good set of par 3's. Fun and challenging, well conditioned, just a little expensive on the weekends.
