Always enjoyable

It’s a long drive for me to play this course but it is one of the most enjoyable courses to play. Pro Shop is always friendly and welcoming and the Starter got me off earlier as a single player which was really appreciated. Even though it was cart-path only the pace of play was acceptable with no long waits. Greens were very quick and in great condition. This course gives gives your game a good workout which is why it is it is one of my favorites. This is a must play course in my opinion.

Public Course, Private Worthy Greens

Offers a mix of shot maker challenges and plenty of length in one package. Scoring low requires a real strong day putting but even without a low score, CR is a fun course and one of the best in Atlanta area,

Cherokee Run

Great 18 holes at a great price. New carts were a nice touch as well. They didn't accept my offer to trade them my hatchback... sad. They were really nice carts. Fast greens all day but the temp dropped whilst golfing. I would go back and recommend this course to others. See you soon.

Must play

My second time paying here. Played it in March and wanted to make it back in the summer when the course would be green. Just getting back but the course is still in great shape here in December even with the fairway grasses drying out. Greens in excellent condition and a bit fast. The staff are very pleasant and welcoming too.

the Golfnow rate was the same as the regular course plus Golfnow charged $10 for making the reservation, thus making the golfnow rate more expensive.

I thought golfnow offered reduced rates. I was very disappointed.

why should I use golfnow in the future?

First Time Playing

Not worth the trip

For 4.7 stars I expected it to be in great shape with awesome views and fun holes. It was in decent shape. The tee boxes are an afterthought. The greens were lightning fast which was great but they were so undulating it was hard to get anything near the whole or even keep the ball on the green. It’s a tough track because I never had a flat lie. Might be better the second time through because you’ll know the landing areas. But for 4.7 stars, I expected more.

Fun but wet

Fun layout. Championship greens. But...always wet, whether just rained or not. Greens take ALL the break, and are lightning fast.
