fun and challenging

overall course is in really nice shape. Greens are fast but consistent. Stay below the hole as much as possible. Played in just over 4 hours which is great for a weekend day. Will be back soon.

Love playing Cherokee Run. Course is challenging but for me lots of fun. It’s fall and course was in very good shape. Pace of play was ok due to lots of folks on course. Can’t wait to come back.

Greens fast and true

Staff was hugely helpful. My friend misplaced his wallet and despite it being after the carts were due in, we were allowed to take a cart and back track to try and find it. Super nice staff all the way around. Bar keep Lindsey was super and everyone could not have been nicer. In case you get these my friend found his wallet deep in his golf bag Thru a torn pocket. May need a new bag. Ha We will definitely be back

Nice Course

Beware of holes eight and nine. They can do a number on your score card, especially the tricky eighth. And if your putting stroke needs some work, this is not the course for you. Greens are fast and many undulating. Three putts lurk on at least half of the holes unless you are stiffing the pins.

Fantastic Course

This was our first time playing Cherokee Run, and we were all very impressed. The condition of the course is outstanding, with Zoysia fairways and Champion Bermuda greens (which can be very quick btw). The course layout is very engaging and good views. On a regular basis we play St. Marlo, Bears Best, and Chestatee, but Cherokee Run is a better course than any of the regulars I just listed. This is a high-end golf course hidden in the middle of nowhere.

Nice place

For some reason. My GPS didn't take me to the front of the building. It left me out in the woods somewhere. They were very understanding and got me on the course a little later than my specified tee time. Some of the locals were brutally slow players who never offered to let us play through. That was the only drawback. Goof course with fast greens. Would play again.

Gnats gnats and more gnats

The amount of gnats buzzing in your face was unbearable. EVERY single shot, swarms were in your face or buzzing in your ear. The course was nice and great layout, but couldn't enjoy any of it due to the amount of gnats and mosquitoes. Also, course does not drain well judging by how slushy everything was and it being cart path only, and the previous 2 days we had no rain whatsoever. Maybe deserves another chance, in winter, when there are no gnats and mosquitoes.

Very nice course

For an extra few dollars I’ll happily drive 30 minutes. The course is very nice (a cpl greens need repair but otherwise in very nice shape) and its shorter holes offer challenging approaches. Greens were hot - any power at all and the ball tolls for days. Overall great value for the money - I’ll definitely play here again.

Good course but the back was unplayable due to pace

Got a Friday 11:30 tee time figuring the course would be empty. The course is beautiful and challenging -- great greens and the rough is incredibly tall and absolutely unforgiving, although some spots on the fairway are muddy due to rain.

However, pace was beyond dreadful. My twosome got paired up with 2 other guys who played from the tips even though one of them said "I have only been out on a course four times before." There was nobody in front of us, so we split up after the 5th hole and finished the front in less than 2 hours. When we made the turn, there were SIX people putting on the 10th green. Figured it was a men's league or something so we tried to skip 11 to get in front of them... Turns out they were playing as 6 because there were foursomes on EVERY SINGLE HOLE in the back. We played 9 holes without anybody in front of us, so where did everyone come from?! I think people go into the clubhouse for lunch and the starters don't control who makes the turn when. In 3 hours and 30 minutes we only played 12 holes. Had to abandon because we had other commitments. Will probably not be back

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 would have to look at our sheet to see what exactly happened on that day. 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 Run Golf Club. We hope to see you again soon.

Excellent course

Cherokee Run was the toughest course I’ve ever played. Most holes had significant elevation changes, multiple obstacles, bunkers surrounding more than half of the green. Fairways were tight, rough was in good condition but deep enough to swallow a ball. Very few areas under repair. Greens were excellent, fast, and most required excellent touch on your approach in order to keep your putt on the green. A good mixture of holes that rewarded long drives, that required small target iron play, and that required a controlled drive. A storm cut my round short so I didn’t get to finish 17 or play 18, but I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge and excellent condition of the course.

Cherokee Run never disappoints

Brought a friend from out of town to Cherokee Run. He was impressed on the first hole. We had to leave after the 13 hole, pace was a little slow and it was a Friday on Labor Day weekend. So pace was to be expected. Enjoyed what we could finish and he wants to play again he comes back to Atlanta.
Friendly Staff that is always eager to help
OH BUT THAT ROUGH IS ROUGH right now!!! Better keep it in the fairway
