Just so slow

I have played here 20 times now; it’s 45 minutes from Atl and 45 minute wait between 9 and 10th hole. They do not marshal well, senior golfers, hackers, just does not move. I like the course and great shape. Just not worth the drive and wait

Great course!

This was my first time playing this course. I’ve heard good things about it and it lived up to expectations. Nice driving range and practice area. .The greens where in great shape and consistent in their speed. Nicest course I’ve played this year. The pace of play was perfect. Will definitely be back to play again soon even though it’s an hour drive from where I live.

Cherokee run is in great shape

Friendly, helpful staff, we played it on the way to the Masters again this year. Must do central Georgia delight and great value for the fee, which included a hat, large photo printed golf towel and lunch at the turn.
Much better conditioning than past years, it’s a delight, especially the intriguing back 9, with lots of elevation change and great risk/reward choices off the tees.
We are going back Monday!

Wonderful Par 3s ... Silly Par 5s

I usually like Arnold Palmer designed courses. He provides a mix of holes that can be challenging but fair. He often has a good mix of very wide to somewhat wide fairways - nothing pencil thin and tight. 5 sets of tees also allow you to play to your handicap with a slope from 143 to 122 and yardage from 5286 to 7016.

I had some issues with the par 5 hoes. They are silly in their design. On the par 5 14th, the hole has a fairly straight routing but from the tee you see a large landing area carved out on the right side giving slicers (most mid-high handicappers) ample landing to still hit the fairway. But this is the only par 5 on the course I enjoyed. The 8th hole requires a drive of less than 220 or you run into water. I like to play 5-pars with a driver and let it rip. Teeing it to a target isn't fun for me.
Then if you played your tees shot too safe from the tee (I did), you'll need another 210+ to carry the water onto a smallish landing area. You really need to know your yardages for the 1st and 2nd shot to play this hole well. The 18th is another design of silliness. Imagine the letter "J". You tee from the the top of the letter and make a sharp right turn to a very small green. You are almost as far from the green after you tee shot as you need to hit your second but high rough and a water hazard guard the tee from the front and the side route.

The par 3 holes are what made the round enjoyable and favorably memorable. The par 3 12th (not loo long at 150 when I played) is a gem with deep bunkers guarding the right side of the green (again, slicers and blockers beware). I have a picture of that hole to give you an idea.

Don't get me wrong, this is a well-maintained course and worth the play but I was disappointed based on my experiences with Palmer courses. I know the design needs to follow the landscape and terrain but some of the choices seem out of character and unusual.

Great course layout

Played the course for the first time ever today and it did not disappoint!! Great course layout and conditions considering the shape of many of the other courses in Alabama/Georgia from the winter. The greens rolled fast and true, and the pace of play was great. I played 18 as a single in under 3 hrs. The only complaint I have is the rude woman working in the grill who acted like I was intruding by trying to order food. Her actions alone ruined what would have been an overall 5 star experience.

Great layout and green conditions

Drainage is very poor and most fairways/tee boxes were at least a 1/2 inch of standing water. On a drier day this course would've been amazing. The layout is interesting and challenging.

Wonderful round

First time to this course. What a magnificent course. Great practice facility as well as restaurant/bar area. The course was in great shape. They have zoysia fairways which were in perfect condition. The greens were the fastest I have putted on in a long time. If you are on the wrong side of the hole its an adventure. The par 5's were almost all reachable in two with a good drive. I missed several greens and was able to putt due to the grass around the greens cut so low. That helped due to the speed of the greens. Really nice par 3's also. Some long some average length. I will definitely come back to this place. About an hour from the Marietta area.

The Run

The perfect spring day at Cherokee Run! Sunny and 70 degrees with a slight breeze. A great round with three buddies in perfect conditions. You won’t find another course in the area this time of year better conditioned than this track. A challenging but fair test awaits you at all times. Greens are slick, fairways are greening up nice, and the bunkers are improved over past visits. Shot placement off the tee is advised and the gps carts are certainly helpful for accuracy. You must leave approach shots below the hole out here or a difficult two putt remains. The driving range is sufficient with a short game area and a practice putting green. The pro shop and grill are staffed with courteous and helpful employees. A must play!
