Awesome course.

Played on a cold rainy day in late October and the course was still in incredibly good shape considering the circumstances. Well taken care of, there’s some fun rewarding/challenging holes and overall good character course.

Great day to play!

Cherry Blossom is a challenging course with some nice views. The hot weather has left its mark a little on the course but it was in pretty good shape at the end of a long hot summer. The green roll well but were not too fast. The cart paths are torn up in some places but it was an enjoyable round. It took 4 and 1/2 hours and we pushed the group in front of us all day. It was a holiday but no course seems to use rangers anymore.

Not worth the money

Mowers and maintenance staff were inconsiderate of play. Sprinklers were disruptive. Burned out areas on the greens.

Maintenance worker was very loud and became abusive to one our foursome who was very respectful of the course.

I want to go back

This is a very nice, well kept, and well laid out course. I plan to return soon, we had rain issues from about the first hole, had couple more delays due to weather. Greens and fairways very nice.

Never a let down

I've played this course many times and it never disappoints. The front 9 is somewhat average with a few holes that will make you think position over power. The back nine requires you to use most of the clubs in your bag if you want to score. 17 and 18 can play above par if your drive is not in the fairway. Both are long and depending on pin position, your third or second shot will require a high approach ball flight with backspin to keep it on the green. Looking forward to playing again.

Tale of two 9s

Front 9 fairly simple. If you’re going to post a low score you need to take advantage of most of these holes. The back 9 is fantastic. Great test. If you can par 17 and 18 from the back tees you’re a player. Overall a fun course I hope to return to next trip into the area.

Overrated

I’ve heard a lot about this golf course from family and friends. The layout is excellent but I was disappointed with course conditions, level of staffing, and the condition of the range balls on the driving range. The course maintenance was lacking, there was no starter on the first tee, and the range balls were dirty with at least 20% having cuts on them. We had tee time reserved but it appeared people were just teeing off on the first hole whenever they pleased. For the rates charged ther are many nicer, better managed courses close by, in Lexington, Paris, and Nicholasville. Tee times matter at well managed courses.

Good shape

In good shape considering alll the rain and spring weather.

Greens a little bumpy but will get better as season and weather get steady.

Shower water in locker room needs to be fixed. Ice cold.

Disappoint

It’s been two years since I’ve played here . Not the same place I remember. Somethings going on with this place . We get there two hrs ahead of our tee time to get some food in there nice dining room. Well not so much anymore. The guy told us that we don’t have a cook so the grill is closed... hot dogs tho. The course is real banged up . The rough is real, real thin. Fairways are also thin. The best part were the greens. DANDELIONS all over the place... really disappointing.

Very enjoyable round

Apparently our timing was perfect. We played as a threesome, and although there were several golfers out, we never had anyone hold us up or push us until we reached hole 15. The weather was great and the course was in fine shape for the this early in the spring. The greens were fantastic and quite fast. I hope to be back soon.

Good Course

Course was in good condition. There were several un-repaired pitch marks on the greens, but everthing else was fine. Cart paths need some work.

Best Public Course in Central KY

I played CB many, many times. I love this course and truly think it's the best public course in Central KY. The fairways are perfect, like walking on carpet. Shots 170yds and in from the Fairways here are fun. Greens are true but can be slow at times. The one thing CB has to do is repave the entire cart path throughout the course. It is incredibly embarrassing for such a nice course to have deplorable cart paths. Having to dodge pot holes the size of small meteorites is ridiculous. This course makes too much money and is too nice for this. I hit one yesterday on accident where I thought the cart broke, and even found myself just driving in the rough instead. Fix this. Other than that, I'll be back. I always shoot well here - terrific course!!
