Cherry Hills Golf Course sprawls across gently rolling countryside in Sturgeon Bay. The layout tumbles across a variety of elevation changes that make for some challenging, hard-to-read greens. Some have even compared them to Pinehurst's famous greens. Be prepared to have your short-game skills thoroughly tested. The front nine is slightly more forgiving than the back nine where the fairways are narrower and many are lined with out-of-bounds stakes. Water hazards come into play one four holes and there are a few strategically placed sand traps. The golf course is challenging but fair and not too intimidating for beginners, especially since at just over 6,200 yards, it is a manageable length. In addition to the course, there is also a lighted driving range at Cherry Hills G.C.

US Open Rough. 2.0 stimpmeter greens.

First of all, the gentleman at the pro shop counter was great. The course, not so great. Needs better signage between greens and tees. The rough was so long that it was really difficult to find a ball. When you did, it wrecks your wrist and hands to get out of it. I know what you’ll say, stay out of the rough. Not so easy when most fairways are 20 yards wide. When you do get on the green, use a 4 iron instead of your putter. I hit a 20 foot putt that went 10 feet and I hit it hard. This course has great potential. It just needs someone to mow the grass now and then.

If you are looking for a ball placement course where you have to think your way around, where you have to shape your shots, use the slopes to your advantage, and adjust to elevation changes, this is one for you. Now that I have the first experience under my belt, I will know better next time how to navigate. The course is being rehabilitated under new management and they are desperate for some rain, the all day, all night soaker. There is only so much sprinklers can do and the grounds team is not deliberately running it into the ground. Mother nature is avoiding this course at the moment.

Rough Diamond

Cherry Hills is one of the most interesting layouts I have played, with many thinking holes. There are more places that require a layup, either off the tee or on a second shot than so many courses that call for bombs away. The course conditions let down the layout. Weather has been dry, and it appears that there has not been enough watering to maintain conditions. A little TLC could make this a truly outstanding track.

Booked GolfNow Hot Deal. For $16 it was worth it. Glad I was following someone. Course was poorly marked and hard to find some tee boxes. Greens and tee boxes nice, fairways poor.

Cherry Hills is Hily

Lots of changes in elevation made the course difficult because it was very dry and the ball would run down slopes. The corse has some interesting holes. There is some sand but only one water hazard. Tees and greens were watered fairways were dried out with areas of brown grass. The greens putted slow but the reads were easy.

Good and bad

Fast round in 3:30. Course is bumpy for driving. Some holes in the trees are terrific, while most are pedestrian. The rough is not thick but is high enough to lose balls right near the fairway.

Good Course, Good Service

We've been playing this course for many years. Miss all the cherry trees it once had. It is still a pretty course to play. The hills and the tall grass areas off the fairways make it a challenge. Greens were slower than we're use to, but not bad. Finished around 1:30 and restaurant did not open until 4 p.m., otherwise we would have stayed to eat.

Fun course, very playable. Greens were really slow, but it did rain the morning I was there. I've played this course the last couple of years, and they've done a great job with it.

Great course and challenging.

The course is great. The fairways and greens are in pretty good shape. It is challenging due to the layout with changes in elevation throughout the course. I would play it again.

You get what you pay for

My wife & I were looking to play a round while on vacation and the price at Cherry Hills was very good. Check in was efficient & friendly as were the other golfers on the course. This course can be challenging at times as there are several holes (such as # 1) where there's a narrow fairway and a high grass rough in which it's very difficult to find your ball. Overall you get what you pay for. The course conditions aren't great and it doesn't appear much investment is happening. Greens were OK but this is more of a course for a family teaching the kids to golf. Nice folks though.

Interesting

The course has a nice design. It is pretty hilly so walking would be a challenge. The greens were average size and slow because of undulation. Fairways small but playable. It was a windy day so it was easy to get in trouble off the tee. Some pretty nice views though and a few memorable holes. Would play again.
