Not A Fan

We paid an extremely low green fee by using GolfNow and the fact that there were thunderstorms in the area and we made the reservation on-line just minutes before teeing off. The course was in the second-best condition of all other courses I have played around Atlanta this year. That's about my only positive take-away from Cherokee Run. I had played the course many years ago but didn't remember the layout. The rolling nature of the layout can be extreme at times and you can be guaranteed that with the exception of one or two holes at the most, you are NOT going to get a reasonably flat lie in the fairway. The ball WILL be above your feet or below your feet or on a sidehill lie. The tree-lined fairways make the fairways look quite narrow. The rough...oh my goodness, the bermuda rough was so deep and thick that most of the time youi need a bloodhound to find your ball if you miss the fairway. A scratch or single-digit handicap golfer would find the course enjoyable and challenging. But for double-digit handicap golfers, it will be much more than challenging.

Aerated Greens

As much as I like this course I didn't like learning when I arrived that the greens had been recently punched and were still heavily sanded.

Almost perfect

Fairways perfect, as usual. Greens rolled fast and true. The only thing keeping the course from a perfect rating was that there were several greens that were so firm that well-hit iron shots bounced over the greens. Most of the greens, however, held shots well.

A Good mountaineious course

It's a good and fun course to play. Undulating greens with very good speed. Some tee boxes and sections of the fairways need improvements. These negatives do not affect the playability and the challenges the course offers.

It’s Great!

My friends had been telling me to go since I movers here in October. Finally got there with my son on the 4th.
It is a Palmer course, so I knew it would be special, we were NOT disappointed!
I will be going back many times.

Fast Greens and some blind shot layouts

I found it a tough test if you have not seen the track before or it has been 20yrs like me. The greens were blazing fast and in great shape. My playing partner was not a fan of the course and I was less critical but I agreed #8 is not a great par 5.

Once and done

I have no real complaints - the course was in decent condition - dry despotic having to dodge sprinklers working on much of the course. good lies in the fairways (I am always surprised to see how many divots are not filled - and there were many) - and the green speed was fair. Bunkers were in poor condition - if players will not fill divots, do you think any would rake a bunker? The real issue - the course was not fun, far too difficult for most golfers with virtually every shot being well above or well below where the shot was hit from. I played with two high handicappers (I am a six) who lost at least a dozen balls between them Uphill shots to greens were beyond their skill level = and they played at 5700 yards.
