The max yardage is deceiving. The course plays longer. Many tee shots are narrow with landing areas that require accuracy. Greens are fast. Be careful about the 18th green if the placement is at the front: your ball can roll 20 yds off the green.

Course is in good shape.

But, the pace of play was terrible. Tee times too close together and no marshal dictating the pace.

We teed off at 3.30 pm. Front 9 took almost 3 hours. Couldn't even finish (got dark around 7.30). Only got through 15 holes.

2 groups ahead of us was a foursome. Took 45 minutes to get through first two holes and two groups were waiting at every tee behind them. No marshal to be seen.

Maybe I will play here, but only off hours.

Go further north/east for better bang for your buck.

Course layout is bland with few interesting holes. The greens are in mediocre condition. We generally play at courses which cost less and are in better condition.

After being lectured on the first tee how stringent they are on pace of play, insisting that everyone stay on a 4:15 hour pace, we hardly ever saw a ranger and the round took 4:40. Needless to say, will not return.

As a former member of clublink I had played Cherry Downs on a few occasions. Played it again yesterday and having nothing but great things to say about it. The greens are the best I have seen perhaps in many years. They are firm, lightning fast, but completely fair - no insane undulations. You make a good stroke at the right speed you get rewarded. If not you get penalized. Fairways, bunkers in great shape (only 1 unraked bunker), and the rough is a fair height - you can hit out of it but you won't get the spin needed to hold these greens unless you bounce it short and roll it on. Staff is super friendly and helpful and the halfway house (which is actually after hole 11) is amply supplied. One of the best values for the money out there!!

Still a great course, even though it's public now. People should pick up their feet and repair ball marks.

The layout and condition of this course is typically fine. The greens however are another matter. I've played the course a dozen times now and each time the pins have been cut in ridiculous spots. Unless you've played them a hundred times and seen every pin placement on every green. you'll have no idea where to try to leave your approach. If you're putting from the wrong spot it's impossible to leave it close. If you happen to drain the first one or hit a bomb coming back on your second putt, you've won the lottery. Even when playing well tee to green, I always blow my brains out on these greens. I'm a mid handicap. If I know I can't break 80 even when I'm playing well, it's not much fun. Don't think I'll be back.

I have always wanted to play this course after hearing how challenging it was. I was not disappointed. I have played most of the top courses around including Canadian Open venues and the greens here are some of the most challenging i have encountered ( they were running a bit slow today thankfully).

The club house staff, starters and players assistants were all very friendly and welcoming. They made me feel like a member. I would definitely play this course again just for that reason alone.
