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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I paid $15 to ride on this course, so it was a great deal. I think this course needs to win back players after a number of years of it being in terrible condition. I saw improvement, so I will return if they offer a great deal, not just a good deal.

This was a nice, somewhat challenging course. You have to know where to place your shots because of the lay of the fairways which I will know the next time I play. The course was dry (lack of rain) but not their fault. I thought the greens were excellent. I will play there again.

The course just wasn't up to my expectations for the Door County area. The signage directing me to the course was poor. No clue as to where to park, other than the hotel parking lot. No signs pointing to the pro shop. The staff was friendly and helpful as to describing the course quirkiness. Tee boxes were small and poor at best. The fairways just weren't distinguishable from the rough. The greens were in decent shape. If this course needs good examples then check out Alaska golf course and Northbrook CC.
