I was expecting this course to be a dog track considering its location. I work nearby and decided to give it a try.

This course far exceeded my expectations. Course conditions are excellent, greens roll fast and true. It is a fun and challenging layout. The greens have many ball marks, which was not surprising, considering the many hackers who pollute our beautiful public golf courses.

Everything seemed to be going to be ok at first but then the pace of play became a nightmare. The marshal told me that they booked 3 tournaments for seniors, super seniors (70-92 years old) and a lady group.(unverified).

A good marketing seemed to be out the window when the management saw an opportunity to make a good money.

We and half dozen other players decided that was enough and quit after suffering for over 5 plus hours for 14 holes. The sun was still up high.

Advice to the golfers who plan to play at Cherry Island should call ahead and make sure there will be no tournament booked or going on.

Well manicured greens but exceptionally fast that day. If you play like your suppose to like staying on the fairways you’ll be fine. Hitting into the rough is ROUGH N TOUGH. Overall fun and highly recommend but bring extra balls.

this course has a great layout. Is very unique. Par 37 on front and 35 on back. I love the fact that it’s not typical five par fives and five part threes. The greens were terrific very fast but readable. This course is in excellent condition especially for winter

Course in good shape. New sand in bunkers and somebody actually smoothed them prior to first tee time.

Greens running at 8-10.and are firm. Fairways roll out. So with all the good conditions here’s their chance to cut down the weedy areas that help promote the poor conditions this course (around the restrooms on the back nine-behind the 2nd par 3 on the backside) is known for every summer.

And maybe eliminate the water grass on half the fairways?

Overall great shape in Feb. June’s just around the corner.

Thanks

Jamoke.

Maybe the course over booked maybe because it’s a day before the Super Bowl but the pace of play could have been a lot better. Needless to say I was extremely disappointed and I play this course often

Me and three of my friends played on Sunday. The weather was dry but fairly chilly. The coarse was in great shape and checking in at the Pro shop went fast and easy. I've played Cherry many times and have gotten better rates but all in all for a Sunday $46.00 was not bad.
