Thank you for playing Cherry Oaks.
Par 4 – 488 yards, 459 yards, 377 yards
Cherry Oaks’ opening hole is a test to golfers of all skill levels. It is the hardest hole on the course playing as a long par four, 488 yards from the back tees. This hole requires both length and accuracy. Your fairway wood or long iron approaches a putting surface that slopes back to front. Par here will be earned.
Par 3 – 195 yards, 174 yards, 131 yards
The first of four par three’s and by far the hardest. The green is protected by a pond to the left and behind the green with trees surrounding the water’s edge. A good tee shot will provide a good scoring opportunity on this relatively flat putting surface.
Par 4 – 463 yards, 437 yards, 376 yards
A drive to the right center of the fairway is ideal for this demanding par four as a pond circles around the left side of the hole guarded by trees. Cutting the corner is all risk/reward on this hole. Your second approach shot comes into a large, slightly elevated, green sloping severely back to front. A missed shot here will provide for a tricky “up and down” for any golfer.
Par 5 – 516 yards, 475 yards, 437 yards
Long hitters can get “home” in two shots on this downwind, dogleg right par five. Shorter hitters will want to play their second shot down the left side of the fairway to open up the approach shot to the green, guarded by trees on the left and right. Be sure to avoid the creek running through the trees on both sides of the hole. Two good shots here should put you in great shape to walk away with a good score.
Par 4 – 311 yards, 263 yards, 187 yards
A short straight away par four that is reachable by some golfers, playing at only 263 yards from the middle tees. This par four is surrounded by trouble. Trees frame the tee shot with with out ob bounds left. A good drive here should put you in position for an easy second shot.
Par 4 – 397 yards, 365 yards, 303 yards
Hole number six is par four requiring two good shots. Out of bounds runs the length of the hole on the left. This hole also features a creek running along the left rough guarded by trees that come into play from the tee box and a second grove of trees forcing an accurate shot into the green. Hitting the fairway here is the best route to go for a good score.
Par 3 – 153 yards, 126 yards, 96 yards
Be careful here, an errant shot can find trouble in all directions. Out of bounds along the left and a small pond runs the length along the right side. A shot too hard is sure to find the native grass behind the green. Keep a careful eye on the pin location as the green has many ridges and severe slopes running away from the hole.
Par 4 – 351 yards, 324 yards, 287 yards
A classic par four. A long iron or fairway wood off the tee demands accuracy to the fairway. A creek extending off a pond runs through the fairway preventing most golfers from hitting driver here. Be sure to avoid hitting left as a pond and out of bounds run the length of the hole. The prevailing winds help you here with distance, but makes holding the green a difficult task for any golfer.
Par 5 – 560 yards, 539 yards, 486 yards
A great closing hole for the front nine. It is a long par five that requires both length and accuracy. Be sure to avoid hitting right where a creek surrounded by trees runs almost the length of the hole. Be careful with your approach shot, missing the green can provide for a tricky “up and down” as the green slopes front to back.
Par 5 – 569 yards, 523 yards, 463 yards
Even though being one of the easier holes on the course there is tree trouble if your drive strays to the left. Long hitters have a chance to get home on the second shot. Shorter hitters try to lay up to a good distance for an easy third shot. Once on the green be careful, this green can prove hard to read.
Par 3 – 145 yards, 137 yards, 118 yards
Don’t be fooled by the length of this hole, it doesn’t play as easy as you would think. The 11th is a quartering shot into a normal prevailing wind. Most people don’t hit enough club. If the shot is missed to the left of the green this could be trouble. There is an out of bounds left and if not out it is a difficult chip shot from the left side of the green.
Par 4 – 396 yards, 362 yards, 315 yards
A drive in the right center of the fairway is desired on this hole. There is water on the left and native rough on the right. If your drive finds the fairway you should have a short iron into this sometimes tricky green. The back side of the green does have a water hazard if your shot is too long.
Par 4 – 382 yards, 356 yards, 284 yards
One of the more demanding drives on the golf course with water on the left and a prevailing wind from left to right pushing the ball to the right rough. Once you avoid the water the second shot can also be demanding as it will be middle to long iron into a big green. The green has a lot of undulation, especially if the pin is in the front.
Par 3 – 126 yards, 110 yards, 99 yards
Probably the easiest hole on the back nine, if you can pick the correct short iron off the tee. This hole does have out of bounds to the left and it can be a tough up and down if you miss the green.
Par 4 – 432 yards, 409 yards, 363 yards
The hardest hole on the back nine has a demanding tee shot with out of bounds on the left side. Even if you hit this fairway, your second shot will probably require a long iron or even a fairway wood to an elevated and difficult green. To save a good round, avoid a big number on this hole.
Par 4 – 335 yards, 308 yards, 265 yards
This fairway is a must. If you have to hit less than driver, do so to hit this fairway. This hole has out of bounds down the left side and water on the right. After hitting the fairway, you should have a short shot to the green with a narrow opening in the front. This hole should be a birdie opportunity.
Par 5 – 540 yards, 512 yards, 446 yards
This hole is best played if your drive finds the right center of the fairway. Longer hitters have a chance to reach the green in two shots. Shorter hitters need to try to lay up to 100-125 yds. from the green, being careful to avoid the water on the right. This hole should also be a birdie opportunity , but be careful, the green can be difficult to putt.
Par 4 – 432 yards, 387 yards, 352 yards
A very good finishing hole with native grass both left and right of the fairway. This hole will require a mid to long iron shot to a demanding green. If this green is missed it is an easier chip from short of the green. Left and right of the green can be difficult. Par is a good score on this finishing hole.
