There’s been a gargoyle sighting in South End! These gargantuan stone guardians protect the Belle Acres Golf & Country Club. (Did you know that there was a country club in the heart of South End?) Affectionately pronounced “Belly Acres” by its members, the idea that the private club/restaurant is a golf and country club in a bit of a joke. Inside you’ll find walls covered to the brim with sports memorabilia, kitschy antiques, and signs from yesteryear rather than the prim and proper decor typically found at a posh country club.
What makes Belle Acres a golf club you ask? It’s the 9-hole putt-putt course around back, that only the best of the best golfers (or really anyone who has ever held a putter” can handle! Between the unique decorations, putt-putt course and casual menu, Belle Acres has been a place where it’s easy to lose track of time while you share burgers and beers with buddies for decades.
Side Note: Belle Acres is a private club, meaning you need to be a member/be with a member to eat there. This makes it the second hardest place to grab a beer in Charlotte, just after the brand new Charlotte Beer Garden. Have you seen those lines?!?! *sigh* Hopefully, we can get into the beer garden once something else new and exciting opens up in 6 months.
