In the heart of Southeast Charlotte is The Tournament Players Club at Piper Glen. A part of the TPC Network, the 6,853 yard, par 72 course was designed by Arnold Palmer and features the knolls and berms typical of a TPC club. This particular course has been recognized as one of Palmer’s best designs to date.
It’s uniqueness lies in the fact that it is a challenging round for the expert golfer, while also offering an enjoyable round to non-expert golfers.
As a member of the TPC Network, a first class outing is assured with every round. A “high-quality, service-oriented golf experience” is the hallmark of a TPC Club and TPC at Piper Glen is no exception.
Charlotte’s mild year round climate means a great round of golf can be enjoyed almost 365 days a year.
The undulating fairways, planted with Zoysia grass and lined with Bermuda rough meander through stately homes and neighborhoods. Bent grass greens are guarded by white sand bunkers and water hazards. Players enjoy the surroundings as much as the game.
Piper Glen has received certification in the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program. A day of golf often includes sightings of herons, ducks, woodpeckers, deer, and more.
When not on the course, golfers have access to a 10-acre practice facility with target greens, separate putting and chipping greens, including a practice bunker, full service locker rooms, and an award winning pro shop. A fleet of quiet electric golf carts are always ready to go as well.
Alternatively, tennis players can enjoy eight lighted clay tennis courts, with a separate tennis pro shop. A junior Olympic sized swimming pool is available to members in the summer months, complete with a Summer League swim team for the kids.
Inside the 35,000 square foot clubhouse, Palmer’s Grill has a commanding view of the 18th hole. The restaurant is a popular spot, with special themed dinners and events being held regularly.
