Beautiful course in excellent shape. If your looking for a fall round to enjoy the beautiful fall colours this is the course. Pretty tough track so would say it’s not for ur below avg golfer. Green a slick and true. Not many straight putts out there. Overall great course Like it so much I had to come back and play it again within a week. Just have to work on the 3 putts

Cheers

Cherry Downs Greens are still Lighting FAST!

Great course layout and lightning fast greens. Nothing held today as the greens were cut very short. The pin placements made it difficult to get within 10-12 feet and some holes had very little green to work with.
This is very typical of Cherry Downs which is what they are renowned for.

Classic Course

We had a great time playing this storied and challenging course. Tight fairways and lightning fast greens keep this one a favourite! I am not a great golfer so i am thrilled to break 100 on this one.. sadly i shot a 104 but had a bit of a sore back! ha ha
