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!

A different challenge

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.

Amazing Views, Amazingly challenging

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.

Great to play again

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.

Great facllity

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!
