Excellent round

I had stayed away from this course due to some maintenance issues last time I played, but was very happy to see those resolved and the course was in great shape - fast pace - responsive cart service and as always great pro shop experience. Course can be challenging or accommodating - depending of course on your shot making abilities any particular day!

Challenging

The course conditions are good considering the current circumstances. It is a challenging course, well maintained, and the staff is extremely courteous and professional.
I took a 10 year hiatus from golf and got back into it as a way to get some exercise outside during a time of social distancing and isolation earlier this year. The staff at Cherokee Ridge were extremely helpful in getting me to embrace the game once again. I would purchase a membership if I played more than once a week but I am definitely considering it for the future.

Very nice course

I play a lot of courses and this was one of the nicer ones I have played in a while. Joel in the club house was friendly and helpful. The course is in great shape. The carts are electric and strong. The course has beautiful views of waterfalls and ponds with amazing houses off the fairways. The club house looks like a million dollar club house (check it out online). The only thing I was disappointed in is that they don't have a marker at each hole telling you what hole you are on with a description of the hole and distances. Nothing but tee markers on the ground at each box. Fabulous course though. Play it.

The course and greens are in great condition. They layout requires accurate drives and smart course management. Overall the course is beautiful, with a natural waterfall. I will definitely play this course again.

Super unfriendly staff

Golf course is a decent value for the GolfNow rate. Greens are extremely slow. Looked like they were being maintained about about 1” (no kidding). Rest of golf course was pretty clean, not many weeds. Staff was extremely unfriendly as we were only to make it 15 minutes before our tee time due to and extended delay due to road work. Tried to charge us $35 dollars after explaining multiple times that we were pay $23.62. Offered to show him my confirmation email and he said he didn’t care to look because he “didn’t believe it.” Also had a run in with a community resident on the third tee as we waited to tee off on the third hole. Seemed like he woke up on the wrong side of the bed or his wife left him and was extremely rude to our group. Typical of a guy who seemed as though he spent 20 minutes fixing his hair in the morning. Wouldn’t waste my time going back and wouldn’t recommended anyone else going.

First time at Cherokee Ridge

The course had a challenging layout, but even after a few days of sunshine, fairways were still waterlogged and muddy. The back nine had significantly better conditions than the front. I would wait for conditions to improve before playing again.

A good portion of tee shots are blind. It would have been beneficial to have a course layout map on the back of the score card.
