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.

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.

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.

Except for the fact that you'll be able to hit the ball anywhere and still have a shot to your green, it will probably be the most irritating round of golf you'll ever play. Balls will bounce off & roll across greens, after they've rolled over the hardpan to reach the green. Then, the cart operation will be infuriating! Controlled by the GPS system, they are slowed down when you are driving them ON THE CART PATH! & that is only an indication of the irritation the carts will cause if you get off the cart path. Someone with no knowledge of golf wrote software thinking they are going to control the cart on the course. I have heard that players have turned off the GPS unit because it was so irritating & an employee rode out to where they were & turned their GPS unit back on. But, like the Three Stooges, you can golf with your friends at Fort Cherry.

I enjoy playing this course many times per season. It is a moderately challenging layout. This year the conditions are absolutely excellent, fairways, 1st cut is nice and short (no looking straight down to find your ball in heavy grass). Greens are perfect, nice speed, no bumps. Staff is very friendly. The GPS carts take some getting used to as you cannot approach too close to the greens with them, you will have to reverse and back away at times. You get used to that after several rounds and understandably it is keeping the course in good shape. Highly recommended!

By my estimation, Ft Cherry is overpriced. Relatively slow play and close fairways caused several close calls with other golfers playing other holes. Very low on my 'replay' list.
