Beautiful

Very nice track, greens were still recovering from punching, but rolled nice. The course was challenging enough but not extremely difficult. The scenery was amazing, every direction I looked was a picture.
The staff were very friendly and accommodating.
I rented some clubs, so I was able to play with some brand new Pings. Definitely, would play it again!

Hidden Gem!

I’ve wanted to play Cherokee Run for a long time, and it didn’t disappoint. The course is in great shape overall, and despite recent aeration, the greens rolled pretty well. Amazing layout with picturesque views from the tee boxes and greens.

Will definitely be back.

A Very Challenging Golf Course & in Great Condition

My wife & I have played more than 70 different courses in GA and this course is amongst the top 10.

Beside the challenging layout in lieu to its elevational change, slope play and plenty of hazards & sand bunkers, the conditions of the fairways & green are in great condition. I would give an “excellent” rating if the sand bunkers are properly filled with sufficient sand & raked. As single handicappers, we found the “green” very challenging due to its tight slope and fast roll.

Overall, we loved that there are no houses around, it’s very serene, very well maintained and the staff there are very friendly especially Mr Digno the starter.

I always enjoy playing this course. The front nine is normally my best side, however this time I play the back pretty well. Looking forward to the next time. The course is always in great shape.

gerry

very pretty golf course in quite good shape except for the sand traps ( they were horrible to put it mildly) you need to pay very good attention to the cart GPS and check the distances for each particular shot, there are several blind shots and the fall off of the fairways is pretty severe at times. I would recommend this course with the above advice

Amazing

This isn’t a perfect course as there are a few washout areas here and there as you get to the edges of the fairways. And I recommend that you consider playing after June 1 when the course has more fully greened up. But either way, the greens are perfect and absolutely amazing - fast and smooth. On almost every green we found ourselves admiring the beauty and architecture that Mr. Palmer encompassed in his design. We include this course on our yearly trip to the Atlanta area and in fact we played it twice this year. Highly recommended.

Every hole is beautiful.

Played here while vacationing near by and was the first one out with a 712 tee time during the week and finished in about 2.5 hours. Even though it rained all night the day before the course was in great shape and greens were in great shape. Even with the morning dew the greens were quick. Would definitely recommend.

Similar to last time

This is a great course layout. The two par 5s on the front are three shot holes - period. Actually, #8 may be more if you cannot draw your tee shot around the corner. The tee boxes were HARD - I broke two tees trying to get them in the ground. The sand is inconsistent in depth which makes some shots more challenging. I putted out of a waste area behind a par 3 because there wasn't enough sand to get a club under the ball. Beyond that, the fairways and greens are spectacular. And the food in the clubhouse was great! Try the homemade chips!

Greens are too fast for the slope

Course was in great condition and I really enjoy the course architecture but if you get above the hole it’s extremely difficult to 2 putt.
