Fore! Or Actually Six... That's the number of golf facilities that the Mecklenburg County Park & Recreation Department is responsible for. Four (4) 18-hole courses, a 9-hole public course and driving range provide unique experiences for golfers of all skill levels.

It's the perfect course to play a round at either before or after work. The course opened in the 1930s and received a major makeover under the guidance of Clyde Johnson in 2010. In 2011 the course was renamed to honor Dr. Sifford, the pioneer and PGA legend who, as a child, fished golf balls out of Irwin Creek on the course, but could not play the course due to segregation. Amenities include Mini Verde Bermuda greens, a first-class driving range, practice chipping & putting areas and a pro shop and snack bar housed in the Revolution Park Sports Academy. Dr. Charles L. Sifford is also home to The First Tee of Greater Charlotte that reinforces nine core values to introduce golf to youth from all walks of life ages 18 and under.
