Cherokee Run Golf Club - Return To Course Page

Conyers, GA

Hole #: 01

Par: 4 / Yards: 411

A tough opening hole, the right center of the fairway is the ideal spot. The green is not very deep but it is quite wide. It also feeds away from you towards the right.

Hole #: 02

Par: 4 / Yards: 389

Many may choose 3 wood rather than driver here, aim towards the right center of the fairway for the best angle in. Only really poor drives will find the fairway bunkers, but many will find the several bunkers up near this green.

Hole #: 03

Par: 3 / Yards: 171

Perhaps the course's most picturesque hole, it may also be one of it's toughest. There are two "death" bunkers behind this green, though there really isn't any good place to miss. Missing short may mean your ball rolls back a long ways into the ravine.

Conyers, GA

Hole #: 04

Par: 4 / Yards: 402

Aim at the left center of the fairway, better to miss left than right. Your approach shot is uphill and this green is very long and it slopes hard back to front.

Conyers, GA

Hole #: 05

Par: 5 / Yards: 462

A super short par 5 that can be played a variety of ways. Aim towards the left edge of the fairway, it slopes to the right. Either lay up to the far left (and you can go pretty far left) with your second shot or go for the green. Be aware of the myriad of bunkers starting about 50 yards before this green (if you come in from the right). Another long green so be wary of pin placement.

Hole #: 06

Par: 3 / Yards: 153

Take one less club on this short downhill par 3. The two tiered green slopes from the left to the right.

Hole #: 07

Par: 4 / Yards: 400

They say it's the toughest hole on the course, and though many may disagree (wait til #17), the tee shot might be the most intimidating. Aim towards the left center (your ball will feed to the right) and avoid the two fairway bunkers on the right (and worse trouble right of that). Your approach shot is slightly uphill, you're better off missing a touch left than missing right.

Hole #: 08

Par: 4 / Yards: 287

You know you want to try but I'd advise against it. It's downhill, and when the breeze is at your back, it's really tempting. I've seen it done a few times, but trying to drive this green will lead to more big numbers than it's worth. A long iron towards the left center of the fairway will still leave you short pitch in. The creek that cuts in front of the green also curls around to the left.

Hole #: 09

Par: 5 / Yards: 543

Perhaps the shortest "long par 5" in Atlanta, a well hit drive may leave you a mid iron into the green if you play the angles right. Aim your drive down the left center of the fairway, your ball may feed a touch right once it hits. If you are feeling brave, you will have an angle from there over the hazard and towards the green (coming in from the left). In fact, the green is a bit more receptive to shots coming in from this angle. Be aware, the green (as you face it from the tee) slopes pretty hard left to right. If you play this hole conventionally, you'll have to carry the water hazard in front of the green as you approach it from the right.

Conyers, GA

Hole #: 10

Par: 4 / Yards: 380

Any tee shot in the fairway will leave you a short iron into this green. The trouble here is your approach. Anything short of this uphill green can (and usually does) roll back 30 or 40 yards. I've seen people putt off this green and go into the bunker thirty yards away. The green also slopes hard back to front.

Conyers, GA

Hole #: 11

Par: 3 / Yards: 198

A long downhill par 3, aim for the right center of the green regardless of pin placement. In fact, hitting just short and letting it roll on isn't a bad play. There is a bunker to the front left of the green as well as bunkers behind it to the left.

Conyers, GA

Hole #: 12

Par: 5 / Yards: 515

Though somewhat short in yardage, this is definately a three shot hole. Hit your drive to the left center of the fairway. Your approach shot should favor the left side (you definately don't want to be right, bad angle and missing right is death) and leave you between 125 and 100 yards in. There is a huge ravine to carry to get to this green. Once again, this green slopes pretty hard back to front.

Conyers, GA

Hole #: 13

Par: 4 / Yards: 398

This hole plays downhill and somewhat shorter than the yardage reads. A long iron or fairway wood is adequate for many players, you can go too long (into the trees or hazard) if you hit a driver. Hit to the right center of this fairway, your ball should feed down a good bit from there. Your approach shot will have to carry over water.

Conyers, GA

Hole #: 14

Par: 4 / Yards: 341

Hit your most accurate long club, aim towards the left center. Drivers can find the fairway bunker on the left. The approach is uphill with bunkers guarding the front.

Conyers, GA

Hole #: 15

Par: 3 / Yards: 191

A very tough par 3, don't miss right, your ball will probably feed into the water. Missing left isn't good either (trees and hazard there). Regardless, the toughest part here is putting, this green is one of the most severe (sloping back to front and away from center) of any in Atlanta.

Cherokee Run Golf Club - Return To Course Page

Conyers, GA

Hole #: 16

Par: 4 / Yards: 378

A drive down the left center is ideal, but it's better to miss to the right than to miss left. Your approach shot is uphill and the bailout is to the right. Be careful not to hit the very front of this green, it's a false front that will feed your ball twenty yards back down the fairway.

Conyers, GA

Hole #: 17

Par: 5 / Yards: 499

Depending on how brave you are, aim your tee shot towards the right center (cut off more if you dare) on this dogleg left par 5. The problem is, you have to be far enough left to be able to carry the first ravine with your second shot. A well hit driver will run through the fairway and you'll have no chance to carry that first ravine. If you can find the fairway across the ravine, you now have to carry a creek that cuts in front of this green. You have more room to miss this green left than right. Getting home in two is possible, but it takes two well hit shots, some luck, and a lot of guts.

Conyers, GA

Hole #: 18

Par: 4 / Yards: 446

One of the toughest finishing holes in the city, this long par 4 requires a blind tee shot up the hill and than a long second that shot requires a carry over the creek for your second shot. The fairway is wide but missing it either way means lots of trouble. The right center of the fairway may be the best place to be. The green is not that deep but it is quite wide. Playing this as a par 5 will probably win the hole most of the time.
