GRASS EVERYWHERE.......

The greens are a touch slow but bent grass is not a friendly grass in the heat.....There Grass everywhere and less then 1% of the greens are damaged from the heat....and Mother Nature is not the best partner......she makes it hard on anyone trying to grow grass but these guys have figured out......

Good, Bad, and the Ugly

Good - Great golf course. Fun layout. Great Condition.
Bad- no one was policing the course,
Ugly- pace of play was terrible. There were very few groups on the course but at one time, there were 6 groups on number 11 and 12. Teeing off at 8:30 and finishing at 1:30 is inexcusable. No one driving around to help speed up play!

We will continue to look for ways to improve, and we are glad to see you rated the course conditions to be great during your game. Thank you for playing Cherokee Ridge Country Club.

So much potential

The place has so much potential. Everytime ai go there I have the same thoughts. Staff could be more friendly, accomidations could be better, there is no drinking water on the course. Today was Cart Path only. They have that in place way too often. Especially when I pay for a cart through this app. There were 2 holes that needed to be Cart path only, the rest would be fine with 90° rule.

The course is in fantastic shape. This is a challenging yet forgiving course. The layout is fun and beautiful. The water falls are an extra treat. We did not stop to eat but will next time.

Much Improved.. Worth It!

I was hesitant to play this course after the last few years. The greens were in poor condition but everything else was always good. The greens are greatly improved. Not as fast as RTJ or Gunters Landing but plush, green, and true roll. Mid handicapper dream. Fairways plush also. Great shape. Lots of blind shots and not a long course but beautiful. Worth playing. No Marshall during the week or drink cart.

Played this in early June for the first time. Liked it so much played it again. 2 weeks later. We moved to Huntsville in the fall of 2020 and I have been trying the various courses within a one hour drive of Huntsville. This is my favorite so far. Great layout with a lot of variety. Course conditions were excellent, very well maintained.

Standards Services Need to be Upgraded

A beautiful day with a mid 80's temperature! Great golf day except No Cart services at all. No on course water makes this course drop in ratings due to this major deficiency! Clubhouse staff was great! Board needs to get current on what are the standards of other local top end courses.
