Birkdale Golf Club
From his historic playing career, as leader of Arnie’s Army, to his growth of the game initiatives, to his golf course design skills, Arnold Palmer was a true ambassador of the game and legend in the golf business. Arnie has designed more than 300 courses worldwide, but the only daily-fee course in the Charlotte area is Birkdale Golf Club in Huntersville, North Carolina.
Located on 200 acres of rolling terrain, this 18-hole Championship golf course is carved between tall pines and natural streams. Birkdale Golf Club is a challenging 7,013 yard, par 72 course made up of Bermuda fairways and new Ultradwarf Bermudagrass greens. The course layout features a number of elevation changes, which are appealing to the eye and adds to the challenge. Well positioned water hazards require players to use every shot in their bag.
