First Time Playing

Winter Gold

Course was in very good condition especially considering the recent heavy rains and time of year (late December). Some confusion about where the first hole was and subsequent holes as they were not clearly marked. Made worse since the garmin watch I was wearing confused the front and back nine (a regular told me they swapped them a few months back). No water coolers and very few ball washers on a wet day. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Only real complaint was a sixsome holding up play for a few holes (they eventually let us play thru)

5-some at Cherokee Ridge

I do not mind the course letting 5 people play but they should be told that they should let faster groups play through!

Excellent Golf Layout

Cherokee Ridge has seen numerous improvements in course conditions in the past 18 months or so. The new greens are incredible now. The fairways are thicker even with scarce rain this summer. And thank God or someone on the new management staff flipped the nines back correctly. As I write this a trackhoe was working on number 2 s bunkers. I hope he continues on through the rest of the course as many are gravel laden.

October and 82 degrees

Had to play with 80 degree weather at the end of October. Went as a single and played with 3 locals who were wonderful! Had a great time. Very dry but course was in great shape. Bermuda greens were firm and fast and rolled true. The local guys (Chris, Jason & Rich) helped me play my best round at Cherokee Ridge where I have played 5 or 6 times when in North Alabama visiting family. Course layout is great and fall foliage and mountain views were beautiful!
