As a professional realty I cannot comment specifically about a particular area. However, I can refer you to resources that may be helpful. Gaston County, where Old Course is located, does provide a map of crime statistics which might be helpful.
I specialize in this area. In fact, I live in Cramer Mountain, a subdivision just across Cramer Mountain Road, and I am also a friend of one of the builders who has built homes in that subdivision. Contact me through my website: www.foxhomescharlotte.com and I'll be glad to assist you.
