In this article, we’re going to have a look at not one, but two of Charlotte’s finest country clubs. These are set inside a ten minute drive of one another, and they are in the south side of Charlotte, NC. The country clubs we’re going to explore are Providence Country Club, and The Piper Glen Country Club. We will start out with the Providence Country Club.
Providence Country Club began in 1989. It is famous for its spacious yards and magnificent properties. The Providence Country Clubhouse is a grand structure of Georgian style, offering personal conference rooms, the Carolina Ballroom, dining room, lounge, fitness center and Pro Shops for Tennis and Golf fanatics. This is a very dynamic organization with the help of pros and clinics readily available for golf, tennis and swimming-instructing the novice athlete to the highly skilled sportsman.
Club membership includes the Dan Maples 18 hole golf course, 12 clay tennis courts, and three swimming pools: an impressive 10 lane competition pool; Junior Olympic pool and wading pool. Nearby, the handy Turn House Grill offers a variety of food and snacks. Property owners aren’t forced to be a part of the Providence Country Club, yet those that do not, still pay HOA fees of about $450 per year. Social gatherings inside the neighborhood include things like the 4th of July Fireworks; Music on the Lawn, along with a variety of sports oriented camps and pool parties.
Providence Country Club households can be found in a large selection of models and pricing. There is a mixture of single family homes, semi-custom homes and custom homes in the neighborhood with prices that vary from $400,000 to $1M.
By comparison, you’ll discover quite a few divine homes throughout the Piper Glen Country Club. Gorgeous custom homes sculpted into the rolling terrain. This is home to the TPC at Piper Glen. The magnificent 35,000 square ft clubhouse sits high upon one of many hillsides overlooking the course and lakes. The club house has both casual and fine dining rooms, in addition to banquet and exclusive meeting spaces. Full service locker rooms along with club storage are on site. Plus, it has an award winning Golf Shop. Piper Glen features eight lighted clay tennis courts, and a Junior Olympic sized swimming pool.
The estate sized homes provide an average square footage of 4500-5500 and an average price of $1.5 Million. The full range of homes is noticeably different with an average living area between 3000 to 9000 sq. ft and prices going up to just under $4 Million.
