After the club closed its doors in 2010, the property laid dormant for over 2 years. Then in 2014, Cramer Mountain Club was formed by a partnership between over 200 residents and DMD investments, creating a nonprofit, member-owned club. There was lots of work to do in order to bring the course back to life. Eight foot high trees and weeds had covered the course, turning it back into a forest once again. The huge undertaking was led by head Superintendent Paul Stroman and Golf Services INC, both boasting an amazing resume' of improvements to courses like Augusta National and Quail Hollow Club, thus the renovations to CMC are outstanding!
The original layout of the course is still present today, but new championship Bermuda greens, irrigation systems, tees, and fairways have brought new life back to the historical Cramer Mountain. A round of golf at Cramer Mountain is challenging, exciting, and truly memorable. Playing 6,456 yards from the back tees, the length of the course is not daunting; however, its topography and challenging shot-making make us one of the best golf clubs in the Charlotte area.
Lenox Development Group lead by Eric Vargosko was the brains behind the brilliant clubhouse renovation. The building was in such disrepair and with 36,000 sqft of extreme renovation needed, there was talk of tearing the beautiful building down. Firstly it was far to large to accommodate the needs of the new CMC model, so Vargosko and his team decided to turn the upstairs into class A office space, though many thought this would not work, Lenox Development had the vision and knowledge to make the upstairs of Cramer Mountains Clubhouse one of the most desired office condo's in the area. This work continued downstairs where the clubhouse now boasts a pro shop, locker rooms, conference rooms, 2 hair salons, a barber and an esthetician. It is vision like this that separates Cramer Mountain Club with the ever expanding list of amenities. Cramer Mountain Club proud to have Lenox Development Group as a partner.
