Covid round

Covid 11 am tee time. Course packed.Areas of course not cut to normal length. Greens slower than usual. Overall playable but it’s perfect weather. This golf course should be in perfect condition. The maintenance guys were looking at some irrigation valves. Tees shaggy fairways not mowed. And all the weedy areas along the edges of the course in full bloom.
Have seen this course in better shape routinely.

Worth A Look

I usually play in the Bay Area, but after 5 weeks of shelter in place we noticed that Sacramento courses were open so we took it upon ourselves to explore the courses up there that we had never played or heard of. I never knew of this course and now I’m glad I do. The staff does a great job of running things with appropriate social distancing and cleanliness, and everyone there is helpful and friendly.
As for the course the layout is varied and interesting. The tee boxes are good and the greens are in fine shape and run true. I do feel that the fairways are just OK. Not dry or bare mind you, just that it’s all a tad bumpy and uneven, yet playable.
Overall worth it to head there instead of playing the same tracks in Sacramento.

Great Round of Golf

It was a perfect day for golf the course is in excellent shape. Due to COVID0-19 we were able to get separate carts and we played the round in 4 hours. When we finished they needed the carts ASAP. Putting on the greens were tricky got my share of PAR's for the day.

Great Day at Cherry Island

I believe the Staff has done a great job keeping everything clean & reducing touch-points!

Staff was very friendly and the course was in great shape!

First time here and man was the course challenging! But that’s o.k., I like a good challenge, especially when the pace of play was so great!

Keep up the good work!

would not play again

while some of this was beyond control some was just a problem, to put it the fastest and easiest way, I will not come back, this course has not gotten it down yet as far as golf in this virus problem. Played another Sac course and they have it down, which would be Ancil Hoffman, would I make the effort to go there again, most likely, so if you want to have staff problems cart problems, no tee time from golf now problems, no starter with a clue problems and a course that is "ok" they I would go here, for me if this is the last golf course running I would quit the game

Enjoyable ROund

This was my first time playing Cherry Island and I was pleasantly surprised. Not just your typical straight forward valley course with circle greens and two bunkers fronting every green. Definitely had some quirks to it. Course was in pretty good shape (looks like they punched the greens a few weeks ago but were roiling pretty well).

Friendly staff to accommodate the COIV check-in process. Pace of play was a 4 hour round.
