Cherokee Run Golf Club Course Review

Newest of Arnold Palmer’s three Atlanta layouts. Among the toughest daily fee courses in area, with the back nine featuring some particularly demanding holes. Tight driving course with plenty of length and challenging greens to test all facets of game. Rock outcroppings on several holes offer appealing views but can come into play. Plenty of opportunities for scoring, but danger lurks throughout the course.

Palmer layout easy on the eyes, a true test of your game. The most recent addition of Arnold Palmer’s three Atlanta layouts, opening in the mid-’90s. Ranks among area’s toughest courses, although lofty slope rating may be a bit deceptive. Does not play as long as the yardage, but there are several extremely strong par 3s and 4s and plenty of opportunities to find trouble.

Take advantage of the handful of scoring opportunities, especially two visually dramatic and reachable par 5s and a short par 4 on the front nine, because there are few breathers on the back. Tight driving course with plenty of length that will challenge every aspect of your game from tee to green, with the putting surfaces matching the layout for difficulty if you are unable to keep your approach shots below the hole.

The quality of the layout and visual appeal that includes rock outcroppings on several holes will make some potential high numbers on the scorecard easier to take. Located adjacent to the equestrian site for the 1996 Olympics, the non-development setting makes it one of the most tranquil around. Zoysia fairways add to the experience, which is one of the most enjoyable in metro area.

  1. Fell in love the course. Especially #9. A challenge for even the best golf. Well maintained, has both
    difficult and moderately challenged holes. I will go back!

  2. By far the best course in Atlanta! I’m an out-of-town golfer and I really enjoy playing this track. Sure, there are other courses that provides challenges, but this course embodies everything low
    and high handicapper’s can enjoy! I try to visit it at least once a month, can’t wait until next month!

  3. Fun and challenging course. The course has a variety of challenges and is always in great condition. The green fees are cheap, and think it is a must-play course in Atlanta!

  4. Very challenging course with a lot of elevation changes; undulations in the fairways make shot making more of a premium because of uneven lies into tight pin placements. Overall very enjoyable course; walking the course is a real workout.

  5. Great course. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Allowed our 6-some to go off as two threesomes. Greens were quick, fairways were in good shape.

  6. A thinking-man’s golf course. The greens were in great shape, and always a terrific view of the
    native pine trees. Best to play during the week when crowds are lower, so to enjoy every minute
    on this amazing golf course!

  7. This was a beautiful and challenging course which I very much enjoyed. Nice setting and very
    professional, and pretty reasonably priced. I would recommend it to anyone who likes to swing the
    links. Can’t wait to play it again.

  8. I thought Cherokee Run was a great test of skill for the mid to low handicapper. The greens were
    in good shape as were the fairways. I found the par 5’s challenging yet open to assault for the less
    risk averse players. A fun round on a good course!!

  9. I have played Cherokee run one time, and I will be back. The course was in great shape and the
    greens were very demanding.

  10. The Course is a great design with lots of Arnold Palmer favorites (ie., Dog leg left holes). Good challenge from the back tees and shorter tees as well.

  11. Although I am somewhat new to golf and admittedly haven’t played all the courses in the Atlanta
    area, this course is by far the best value. It is challenging and well maintained.

  12. A true test for every club in the bag. Beautifully laid out and challenging but fair to every level of golfer

  13. This is absolutely one of the most enjoyable courses in the area. The course was in great shape and the layout is superb. If I lived closer, this would be my home course

  14. Played the $42 all you can play deal during Summer months…awesome! includes breakfast, lunch and the course was in great shape. fairways pure, greens good speed, bunkers raked and looking good. great layout, very challenging!

  15. Course was in very good condition and the greens were rolling true. As usual the service from the staff was outstanding. They were able to accommodate me as single.
