Larkhaven Golf Club is a Semi-Private, 18 hole golf course located in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Larkhaven Golf Club first opened for play in 1958.
When Barron Connell hopped onto his Ford tractor and carved his family’s eastern Mecklenburg County dairy farm into a golf course 60 years ago, the nine-hole Larkhaven Golf Club was one of the few daily fee courses Charlotteans could play.
Since then, the course has grown to 18 holes, founded a four-ball tournament that’s run since 1972, served countless hot dogs from the clubhouse grill and endeared itself to golfers with a family feel that’s the opposite of country club stuffiness. Larkhaven is the oldest public, 18-hole course operating in Charlotte.
The course features rolling terrain with challenging, sloped greens and narrow, tree-lined fairways. Water hazards come into play on nine holes.
2018 is almost certain to be Larkhaven’s final year: The club has agreed to sell itself to Meritage Homes, which plans to build 350 houses on the 140-acre property tucked away off Camp Stewart Road.
