Nice cheap course, what do you expect?

Courses are really a reflection of the price it costs to play them, in Cherry Hills case or California Golf and Art Club if that’s how you remember it, it costs $11 with a cart on a deal day at 11:30, it’s prime time for the heat and nobodies around (which can be a good thing). The greens in the past couple months have improved since last year, getting greener, softer, more difficult. A lot of greens are patchy and seeing what’s happening so far with the revitalization of the golf course I expect these to be fixed pretty well by the end of the year. The fairways are rough, especially when driving the golf cart on them, they also need new golf carts but before that they need to fix all the holes in the ground throughout the golf course, need to exterminate all the squirrels and gofers and regrade the land. So in all, I would give this golf course a 2 star but since the greens are getting better and I see that they’re trying to make it a nicer place, I’ll give it a 3 star, pretty challenging course at almost 7000 yards, one of the longer golf courses in the area. Not a bad bang for your buck so to say. Wouldn’t spend more than $28 on this course.

Horrible

If you like playing on dirt from tee to green then this is the course for you. Course was in horrible condition. Hard to find any good grass to play on, nothing but dirt and weeds.

Good for the money

Cherry hills can be a very good course, if better care. Long par 5s. Greens are fast. Keep it in the fairway, or good luck finding your ball.

Aweful

The course is in TERRIBLE condition

The greens cannot even be considered greens - there are so many gopher holes on fairways - you can almost throw your back out if you don’t drive VERY VERY SLOW

most fairways have crappy grass

Very very disappointing day - waste of money for both of us

Course should be closed

Everything about this course sucks!
Fairways , rough and dirt all in one. No identifyable boundaries.
Gopher holes everywhere and along with dead squirrels.
Course should not even be offered on golf now even with hot deals.

This course needs help.

I enjoy the openness of the course but it needs help. To start with, the sign that states no outside coolers. Fair enough, but if you won't allow outside food and snack, especially on a hot day, you better have a snack cart out and about. Or maybe have water available at every other hold. (Or any hole for that matter.) They did not. And the course? The first hundred yards of each hole was just dirt. Let's be honest, I paid 15 bucks so I'm not complaining, just being honest about the shortcomings. It could be a nice course if some capital investment was put into it. I hope to see it improve someday. Friendly neighbors line the course and the course layout is good for a Dad trying to teach his son the game of golf without losing to many balls.

Absolutely terrible and awful

Thought I’d give this course a try for the money— right around 15 bucks. I would have preferred to shred the 15 dollars instead, that’s how bad this course was. The reviews all say this but I thought i’d give it a chance either way. Well, please, PLEASE, listen to this review, and do NOT go. It is hands down, bar none the worst course i’ve ever seen. No grass in the fairways, greens are essentially weeds, bunkers are concrete, if you miss the fairway gophers have a higher chance of finding your ball than you do. Even if you hit the fairway, there’s squirrel holes that are 50 feet deep that eat your ball. Unreal.

Enjoyed my round

I didn’t play well and the heat got to me late in my round as there isn’t a whole lot of shade to be found and if you get off the fairway, you are going to have some work to do!! Tee boxes need some work and the fairways could use a little work as well. The greens were in decent shape and rolled well. There was a decent pace of play and they did have restrooms at a couple of holes. The ladies in the pro shop were very nice and made it very pleasant to be there. All in all an ok place and for the price it is worth it.

Terrible Course w/ a lot of potential

I only paid $2 after my hot deal and $10 off coupon but, the rate for this course is $38. I can't tell you how many gopher holes were throughout the course. I wound up playing cart path only because my back was taking a beating driving on the so called fairways that looked like mortar practice fields.. The tee boxes were horrible as you can see in my picture. The flags were crooked because the cups were broken and the flag would not sit straight up. 2 kids walking the course on the 11th hole stole my ball then tried to sell it back to me. Now with that said, the greens were nice. Hard to believe the shape of the tee boxes and fairways and bunkers but, when you get to the green they rolled nice and were soft. This course was probably awesome years ago. It has the potential to be a very nice course. Nice views, challenging holes and in a nice neighborhood. I played the black tees (7050 yds) and it was long.
