A buddy and I played Fort Cherry on a scalding hot but sunny and gorgeous summer day. Friendly starter got us off early and we enjoyed a great round. The course gets a lot of play, but the tee boxes were well maintained and divots were all filled, lots of COLD water which really saved the day, and overall conditions were most enjoyable. Even the portajohn was clean on #13. Greens were very nice and consistent. The electric carts have GPS which was a great help. The pub offered cold draughts and the perfect setting to savor my victory. We'll be back.
Golf course was in great shape .
Greens were in great shape and ran true, they were a little slower then usual but with the amount of rain area has received lately it was understandable.
We received alot of rain this week and Sunday it had to rain 2" , was almost reluctant to play anywhere on Monday, that's why we booked the 1:36 tee time, that might have accounted for our fast pace of play.
Course is in good condition; GPS in the carts. It's a great place to play for the "Hot Deals" promo

Meet new people
Always great to meet nice people...but i guess golf usually presents those opportunities...
Considering the amount of rain we’ve had this year, the course is in excellent shape. Nice fairways and the greens were nice.
Course in good condition, everyone was friendly ... etc. we were a twosome but did not have to wait much until the second 9. Only unfortunate issue was the foursome of high school kids ahead of us started to loose consideration on the 17th par 3. As we were waiting to hit they were goofing around throwing clubs into the sand pushing each other , yelling as they took their putts..etc. A golf ball then got thrown back onto the green followed by one of them as I was hitting... unfortunate ... they are young but this kind of behavior should be policed by the staff and eliminated.
Nice Course, great value
I hadn't played this course in three years. I was entertaining a guest from out of town and was very happy with the course conditions and pace of play. We played 36 holes that day and were charged half the cost of our first round. Staff was friendly and very accommodating. They have a very good GPS system in the carts. The greens are in great condition and very challenging. Overall the day at Fort Cherry was very enjoyable.
Best for the money
Golf Now has hit the nail on the head with this course...great value.. good test...and very nice condition...probably should dump the gps..90% of players today have their own yardage devices...and this system tends to slow down play
Very good, quick, cheap round
Booked pretty last minute but easily got on, and for under $20. The course was in really good shape considering the part of the season and weather conditions. I will be going back to play the course the summer.
Course is always in great shape. Wide open layout with several challenging holes. Friendly staff and really nice restaurant on site with full bar. Will definitely be back again.
Early year condition
For the time of year the golf course was in great shape. All aspects of the golf course T's Fairways greens and rough.
Typical Fort Cherry Ineffective Golf Course Management
Had a regular group of golfers that make T times and play at Fort Cherry regularly throughout the year. Not that Fort Cherry is any sort of impressive golf venue, but it is cheap! Understandably so by golf course condition and layout standards. Showed up for play and players had to stand around for quite a long time, waiting for the few carts that were usable but out on the course. Most of the carts were unusable because they had dead batteries. Although, it could have been a blessing in disguise if players would carry their bag and walk so they would not have to suffer through the stupid cart control software that slows and stops carts way too often and at many non-sensical times and locations.
the rough was very well-kept, with no bare spots and consistent height. Course has many parallel holes, but generally wide landing areas.
Only worth the trip for a deep discount
Have played Fort Cherry 5 times in the last year and the only time it’s remotely worth the trip is on a great hot deal. Today the entire course was soaked (no drainage anywhere). All but 1 cup was full of water. The other 4 times I played Fort Cherry the greens were always ridiculously firm. The GPS on the carts are horrible and slow down when passing water hazards while still on the cart path, and if you get too close to the green or hazard then you are forced to reverse even if you’re cart is pointing the direction to get you back to the cart path. The pro shop was closed since they were slow, but thankfully the bartender had the list of prepaid golfers. The only time I’d consider coming back is another $16 hot deal like I had today, but even then I’ll still be checking other nearby courses first.
Course is wide open so bad golf can work out to be good. And a history of danger zones from golf balls flying in all directions. Adjoining holes put you in danger of being hit by balls that zoom at your head. Story is that a player was knocked out & taken to a hospital when he was hit directly in the forehead by a drive from the #8 tee, while walking up his #7 fairway. I was not hit, but several times I heard Fore being yelled as balls went bouncing by. Pretty hard ground and you can get a lot of distance on the greens after your ball lands on one. One of the worst GPS & golf cart control systems I have ever experienced. Carts are slowed down & stopped in illogical places, e.g. the cart path. Inaccurate GPS information. $45 is ridiculous for this course. I have played here before over the years but now with that aggravating GPS/cart control system, I try to avoid going to Fort Cherry as long as there is another golf course open somewhere.
This is a fun Golf Course to play. You actually have to be able to move your ball in all directions. Greens are on slower side but can get a little quick on downhill putts.
