Hey @missmelissa ! I’m in the same boat trying to find a club with a good mix and female golfers! What did you narrow your list down to? And did you ever receive that excel list mentioned in this forum?
Totally agree. I should have mentioned Cedarwood. I check on them every time MPCC shuts down. I'm hoping my son will join there in the future.Lived in Charlotte since 1983.Been a member at both Providence CC and Firethorne which is in Waxhaw. Loved Providence but assume membership is a bit older or perhaps in transition. If you have a family you should take a look.
I echo that Carmel is #1 but I know there is a lengthy waiting list. If you're looking for just a golf club go to Carolina which is near uptown or Cedarwood which is in South Charlotte but has a golf club versus country club kind of vibe.
Here is a link from Axios of top club and how much at each.
Should have put in price range in my initial post, thanks for pointing that out. Carmel is outside of the "budget." After my initial research, I was thinking something like TPC Piper Glen, Raintree, Providence, or Firethorn. Something with a reasonable Young Professional rate - probably less than $20k for initiation fee and anywhere from $300-600 for monthly.It all depends on how much you want to pay. If you can afford it, I recommend Carmel Country Club. If you are on a budget Cedarwood or Firethorn are great clubs.
I'm a senior member at Myers Park and have been there for thirty eight years. I doubt I'll ever leave, but would be interested in seeing the aforementioned spread sheet just in case.
Yes. You will have to pay a cart fee for each round unless you walk. Except when it was really hot, I used to walk and carry when I was younger. Cedarwood is a great course to walk. Also, some clubs have pull/push trolley for a nominal fee.Should have put in price range in my initial post, thanks for pointing that out. Carmel is outside of the "budget."

This is also probably a stupid question, but I'm assuming that there are no greens fees to play each round at these clubs? Back where I grew up, you'd have a monthly fee, but you'd have to pay a cart fee for every round you played. Is that common here too?
@SHOWBOAT12 I am relocating from Houston, TX to Charlotte for work at the end of this month and am in the same situation you were. This thread has been super helpful. Would you mind sending me the excel sheet you compiled so I can try and figure out the best course fit for me?
Hey man. I recommend checking out Charles T. Myers when you get here. Fantastic condition currently. I play it 3x a week right now. Would be happy to get a round in when you move. @mlmaurer17
