Like most area golf communities, Shannamara is built around its center piece golf course, The Divide Golf Club. The course and community was established in 1995 and the course design was provided by John Casell.
The course was voted best course in Charlotte in 1997 and features 18-holes with wide Bermuda fairways and large bent grass greens all protected by sand-traps and water, yet the course is applicable to any skill level. The Divide name originates from the fact that the course lays-out in both Mecklenburg and Union Counties as illustrated in this Shannamara Neighborhood Map.
