In 1961, Cherokee Golf & Country Club was originally established it as a nine hole course. The eight founders of the club included Ed Graves, Sr., John Pickett, Gus Henderson, Joe Holmes, Stoval Trawick, Tom Mullen, Bill Mundy, and Herbert Edwards.Norman Summers, a golf pro from Council Bluff, Iowa and a friend of founder, Ed Graves, Sr., laid out the original nine holes. His fee - only his expenses for coming down to Georgia. The course was expanded to 18 holes in 1970. M.L. Langston was the first pro to run the club.
Today, the course measures 6,806 yards from the Blue Tees, and has four tee distances to select the challenge you desire. Cherokee Country Club boasts one of the most enjoyable golf courses in Northwest Georgia. As an old style golf course, it remains fun for golfers of any ability but very challenging from the back tees for the low handicappers. Our Bent Grass greens and Bermuda Grass fairway & tees are always in excellent condition making each round an enjoyable one for our members.
