Fort Cherry Golf Club

  64 Reviews

Used to play here quite often. Wasn't the best, but the price was right and it was a good value.

Then the bar got fixed up a bit and they started charging over $40 to play. You can literally play Quicksilver for about the same amount of money as Fort Cherry; which really put it in perspective.

It looks as though the positive reviews I see are all very vague and similar, which leads me to believe they were either payed for or done by course management.

The real icing on the cake for me, is the carts that will slow down or shut off in the most ludicrous of places on the course. You'll even get warned and slowed if you are just on the cart path. I believe playing around with a mother-in-law and two newborns would have been less annoying than playing with these carts.

Get the price in line for what you actually offer and I'd recommend, but at the same rate as some very nice courses in the area and I'll never be back.

He would not play this course again.

Had a regular group of golfers that make T times and play at Fort Cherry regularly throughout the year. Not that Fort Cherry is any sort of impressive golf venue, but it is cheap! Understandably so by golf course condition and layout standards. Showed up for play and players had to stand around for quite a long time, waiting for the few carts that were usable but out on the course. Most of the carts were unusable because they had dead batteries. Although, it could have been a blessing in disguise if players would carry their bag and walk so they would not have to suffer through the stupid cart control software that slows and stops carts way too often and at many non-sensical times and locations.

the rough was very well-kept, with no bare spots and consistent height. Course has many parallel holes, but generally wide landing areas.

Have played Fort Cherry 5 times in the last year and the only time it’s remotely worth the trip is on a great hot deal. Today the entire course was soaked (no drainage anywhere). All but 1 cup was full of water. The other 4 times I played Fort Cherry the greens were always ridiculously firm. The GPS on the carts are horrible and slow down when passing water hazards while still on the cart path, and if you get too close to the green or hazard then you are forced to reverse even if you’re cart is pointing the direction to get you back to the cart path. The pro shop was closed since they were slow, but thankfully the bartender had the list of prepaid golfers. The only time I’d consider coming back is another $16 hot deal like I had today, but even then I’ll still be checking other nearby courses first.

Course is wide open so bad golf can work out to be good. And a history of danger zones from golf balls flying in all directions. Adjoining holes put you in danger of being hit by balls that zoom at your head. Story is that a player was knocked out & taken to a hospital when he was hit directly in the forehead by a drive from the #8 tee, while walking up his #7 fairway. I was not hit, but several times I heard Fore being yelled as balls went bouncing by. Pretty hard ground and you can get a lot of distance on the greens after your ball lands on one. One of the worst GPS & golf cart control systems I have ever experienced. Carts are slowed down & stopped in illogical places, e.g. the cart path. Inaccurate GPS information. $45 is ridiculous for this course. I have played here before over the years but now with that aggravating GPS/cart control system, I try to avoid going to Fort Cherry as long as there is another golf course open somewhere.
