Aerated

They’d aerated and sanded the greens (which we knew in advance), but they also closed 4 holes that morning. We still had a good time and the greens were puttable. It’s a good course, even when they’ve had to aerate.

Great prx round for upcoming company outing

My playing partners and I enjoyed a great day at your property. Clean facilities, friendly staff and very playable layout. Mother nature has badly damaged some greens and hopefully cooler, drier fall weather will allow you to recover. We will be back.

Best publicly accessible course around

I play here 5-6 times a year…Great course that is usually not crowded. Late summer heat is taking a toll on a few greens, but still very playable. By late Sept, will hopefully be in PERFECT shape again.

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!

Hello. Thank you for reviewing the course. We apologize for the delay of play during your round. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. We work hard to accommodate everyone who visits our course and to best control pace allowing everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. 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. We hope to see you again soon.
