Amenities include Mini Verde Bermuda greens, a first class driving range, practice chipping & putting areas, pro shop and snack bar that's housed in the Revolution Park Sports Academy. Dr. Charles L. Sifford is also home to The First Tee of Greater Charlotte that promotes core life values and introduces golf to youth from all walks of life, up to 18 years old.
