Cowans Ford Country Club

Cowan’s Ford Golf Club was founded in 1963. It is a private, member owned club located in quiet seclusion on the southwest corner of Lake Norman.

The club boasts an 18-hole championship golf course, but it’s not just about golf. It’s about fun for the whole family. And Cowan’s Ford offers something for everyone.

Cowan’s Ford is a picturesque and immaculately groomed golf course. The championship layout follows Donald Ross principles by presenting a wide variety of challenging and fun-to-play shots for all levels of golfers.

The golf course offers wide corridors bordered by heavy woods. Ponds and natural creeks bring water into play on seven holes. The greens are A-4 bentgrass and the tees and fairways are hybrid bermuda. The tee and pin placements change regularly to provide a wide variety of risk and reward opportunities.

The practice facility is over 40,000 square feet. It includes a chipping green, practice tee and bunkers.

Cowan’s Ford has active Seniors and Ladies Golf Leagues. The club also has a comprehensive Junior golf program throughout the summer months. It includes clinic play days, inter-club matches, parent/child event and a Junior Club Championship.

Cowan’s Ford is a thinking man’s golf course. It isn’t terribly long and there are relatively few water hazards. The corridors are wide. Low scores can be achieved by strategic positioning and by carefully reading the undulating greens.
