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!

The first 3 holes, I thought I was over my head. I then settled down and played golf, and noticed there are some short cuts, especially on the par 5s. This is a very well maintained course, friendly staff, nice greens.

Plenty of elevation changes. Best course conditions I've seen this summer of any course I've played. From mountain views to a granite rock hillslide that looks like molten lava from a volcano. This course has wonderful scenery.

Pro shop personnel warned me this course is more challenging than most, he wasn't kidding. You have to draw or fade with everything from a driver to a 9 iron. Two par fives make you think to try hit crush a drive 270 over trouble or hit a hybrid, then wood, then short iron in. Really great design of risk/reward. Greens were small but excellent shape. This course kicked me in the pants and I enjoyed it.

It had been 18 months since I last played here and the wet Spring and Summer really greened up the course. The greens were in great shape and really fast with subtle undulations that led to a lot of near misses. This is course you need to play with someone who has played it before if it’s your first time or you will hit the wrong club at times. It’s a true gem in terms of layout and conditioning and one I look forward to playing more and more as my game improves.

Played early morning during the week. No issues with pace of play as I was 2nd on the course. The course was in great shape except for the traps (expected with all the rain). Greens were perfect!!! Played from the blues, but next time I’ll play from the blacks as a number of the par fours are pretty short from the blues, but I definitely will be playing agaIn soon! Love the layout!

This is a great course for golfers with average or better golf skills. The greens were smooth and fast and the fairways were in good shape for July. The layout has enough different holes that it keeps your mind in the game the entire round. I wish I lived closer so I could play this track more often.

Like Cherokee Run but the pace of play was extremely slow. Lot of players and the staff seemed overwhelmed and unable to manage slow play. Condition of the course was fine but the play was way too slow. Over 5 hour round. No good.

I've played this course several times over the past few years and have usually enjoyed it. Something has happened this summer and the pace of play has come to a grinding halt. My last round was over 5 hours. The golf carts have GPS that track progress and even has a clock that says how long you are behind the pace of play. We were a hour over pace of play with no help from the course ranger trying to speed up play. They are more concerned with packing everyone onto the course then people having an enjoyable round. Unless you like waiting 15 minutes between holes and having rounds take up your whole day, go somewhere else.

One of the best courses ever played... Greens were very fast; warp speed. Fairways just cut. The zoysia grass (fairways) was nicer than some greens at other courses. Sand traps were a bit hard (so stay out of them). Cars in the lot, but almost no crowd on the course. Nobody behind, nobody in front. GPS on the carts very accurate. GPS limits carts on steep downhill paths and out of bounds areas. Carts have coolers and ball washers.

First time playing the course. Very challenging layout and difficult. Blind tee shots and several elevation changes. Many greens protected by water and sand. Zoysia fairways were in excellent condition with good roll and few bare spots. Greens were also in great shape. However all of the bunkers were in bad shape with some half full of water and poor drainage. (Reason for the 4 rating) Pace of play was slow on back nine. Had a single in front of us (on a Sunday!) and slow threesome in front of him. Range balls included in price. Range includes a green side trap. Look forward to playing again after having a round of playing experience.

Did the 4+ inches of rain in the last day and a half have anything to do with the bunkers?
