Tournament was being played

Everything was great with the #1 thing that ruins Golf.....slow play. A tournament was being played and I got behind some guys playin Best Ball. My great grandmother could have played faster. A little less talk and a lot more action would have been nice. Oh well, there will be another day for golf.

Truly excellent from start to finish

We had one of our best experiences on a course we were trying for the first time today. The course is beautiful....excellent condition. The staff could not have been more friendly. Pace was spot on and the course is the right level of challenging. Even great, diverse food and beer options! Can’t wait to go back.

One of the best in Gerogia

This was my 2nd time playing the course. Some really interesting holes that make you ponder club selection. Went out before and outing and caught a 5-some not part of the outing. They let me play through but I suppose this isn’t normal practice to let out a 5-some, as a three some was quickly approaching to also be on their take. My only negative comment is a few tee boxes were in rough shape but they had gotten quite a bit of rain so I suspect that will be addressed as the fairway are well groomed and the greens are immaculate on almost every hole making them very fast. A true pleasure to play and I will be back as I’ve found another great challenge.

Needed a Ranger

The foursome in front of us was playing the wrong tees. On the first tee, we heard them talking about how long it had been since they last played and then they proceeded to the Blue tees which were beyond their means. This was evidenced by rarely, if ever, reaching a Par 4 in two shots. They sprayed the ball all over and had no idea how to play ready golf on top of it. The round took almost five hours and we went off at 7:30am on a Saturday morning. The next time will be my last time if this is the new norm at Cherokee Run. Otherwise, the staff could not be nicer, including range balls with the greens fees is a nice touch I wish other courses employed, and he course was in good (greens had been aerated three weeks early) really good shape. Another week and they'd be back to great!,

Needs some work

Good course okay shape i remember when the course was great excellent but needs some attention now. Lost 2 balls in the fairway on 18 with the double cut fairway. The out of bounds needs some attention because if you ball rolls in you cant find it. Love the golf carts. Also some tee boxes need help. But for $30 because of the greens aerated not bad. I'll be back. Thanks

Good Round.

Course in great shape, but it was HOT, we expected that, and cut our round short. Big course if you are tired and hot.

But always an eventful course. Know your site lines.

Difficult but really really good.

The course is in amazing shape. Nothing more to it. One of the top five courses within 30 miles of Atalanta, easily.

Best in Atlanta

Cherokee Run has been my favorite public course in Atlanta for the last five years. The layout is fun, challenging, and fair. It is always in great condition. I gave it 4 stars because the bunkers need to be rehabbed. I also meet great people there--people who are grateful for the chance to play such a nice course at such a great price. Thanks, Cherokee Run staff!
