Back in the late eighties, golf course architect Dan Maples was called upon to create a championship-style golf course just south of downtown Charlotte. And when it opened in 1989, the Providence Country Club became the centerpiece of one of the finest country club communities in the Queen City. In 2016, Raleigh-based McConnell Golf purchased the club, and in 2008, McConnell brought in noted golf course architect Kris Spence to rework the original Maples design here at Providence Country Club.
