2018 Tennis Expansion


For more than 20 years, NorthStone has provided an exceptional country club experience that rivals the better clubs in the Charlotte market. And over the last 5 years, our owners have invested more than $2.5 million dollars in the Club, including new greens, new cart fleet with GPS, new water slides and plunge pool, new course maintenance equipment, enhanced irrigation, fitness center upgrades and new equipment, locker room renovations and clubhouse carpeting with little funds allocated to tennis. 

Folks, tennis is finally getting its day in the sun!

I would like to give you a glimpse of our new, lighted, four-court tennis expansion.

         


Project Details
• Four brand-new, 60-foot by 120-foot hard-surface tennis courts.
• 10-Foot fencing with 4-foot divider fences between courts, California corners, and windscreens.
• State-of-the-art LED lighting to tournament specifications.
• 6-Foot, shaded, double-sided benches between courts with refreshment stations.
• Small tennis shop in part of the existing pool concession stand.

When this project is complete, NorthStone will have 7 tennis courts and finally be able to offer a competitive tennis program. We plan to offer new Tennis memberships and promote interclub and USTA teams as well as host traditional club tournaments like Member-Member, Member-Guest, men’s and women’s club championships, and more.
We hope to begin moving dirt as early as next week and expect the project to take about 90 to 120 days to complete. 
We have published a new FAQ page on our website under the Tennis menu which we encourage you to visit often for the latest questions and answers on the future of Tennis at NorthStone. We have pre-seeded the FAQ page with questions we believe will be asked and welcome you to email Lindsey Davis (ldavis@northstoneclub.com) with new questions that she will add during the construction phase of the project.

We believe this new facility is a HUGE STEP in the overall direction of our Club, but we know it is not the final step for our tennis program. How fast we get to the next steps, like surface repairs and lights on the original three courts, and possibly more, will depend on all of us and the entire membership. Our owners have repeatedly demonstrated their financial commitment to the Club, and now specifically tennis. They have also shown a strong faith in our leadership team that this investment was needed now and have provided significant financial resources to make it a reality. Next comes the challenge of ensuring that NorthStone Tennis is held in the same high regard as our other great programs and amenities.
