Country Club

Country Club takes it name from the . Its earliest avenues were platted in 1903 and its newest date from after the Second World War. Buildings range from turn-of-the-century factories and blue collar housing, to one of Charlotte's largest pre-World War II suburban shopping strips, to the city's most prestigious country club.
Plaza-Midwood did not formally come into being as a neighborhood until 1973. Residents who had organized to stop a highway through the neighborhood decided to form a permanent community organization, and chose a name that combined those of the area's picturesque main street and one of its larger subdivisions. Official boundary lines were drawn in 1979 by the Charlotte Planning Commission, part of a city-wide effort to define Charlotte's neighborhoods for the first time. The post office has been moved and updated, the library is a stunning showplace, a major grocery chain has expanded and updated its store, and homeowners are taking on "fixer-uppers", restoring bungalows to their previous beauty. The area's stores and restaurants are eclectic, with hidden bargains especially in the antiques shops. Within this area you will find Charlotte County Club. In 1910 a group of Charlotte businessmen organized the Mecklenburg Country Club. Charlotte was still a small city of only 34,000 people, but its newly wealthy industrialists and developers felt they merited the era's symbol of wealth and prestige, the golf course. They purchased a tract of farmland far out in the country, straddling Briar Creek on the north side of Central Avenue, and turned the old farmhouse into their clubhouse. Today it is known as one of the premier clubs in town. Along Central you can find a wide variety of funky shops and restaurants including the The Penguin and Fuel Pizza.
