The Cherry Hill Clubhouse sits at the highest elevation of the Clubís property, the course included. As one makes the gradual descent from the Clubhouse toward the first tee, one is struck, not just by the simple beauty of the surroundings, but also by the efficiency of the setup. The first and tenth tees and the ninth and eighteenth greens are positioned comfortably around the practice putting green and the starterís station. The Clubhouse, menís locker room, pro shop and halfway house complete the circular cluster. Just across Cherry Hill Boulevard are wonderful practice facilities, including a spacious driving range and comprehensive short game practice complex. Immediately to the west is approximately 120 acres of mostly wooded land, providing ample space for an additional nine holes should the membership ever opt for expansion.
Cherry Hill was designed by Walter J. Travis, a respected golf course architect and magazine publisher, as well as a renowned amateur golfer. The course was completed in 1924, and according to Travis scholars, it retains as much of its original configuration and intent as any Travis course in use today. This is particularly true of the Cherry Hill greens, which are known for their speed, trueness and subtle breaks. By modern standards, the greens are relatively small, yet present ample opportunity for varied pin locations ranging from the straightforward, to the enticing, to the ďsuckerĒ variety. Subsurface drainage systems installed around the turn of the century have enabled the grounds crew to maintain the integrity of the greens despite their old-fashioned clay and topsoil composition.
A comprehensive golf course renovation project, completed in 2009, re-introduced many features characteristic of Travis designed courses, and updated the course for modern play and maintenance practices. From a numbers standpoint - the course was lengthened from 6891 to 7027 yards; the number of bunkers was reduced from 117 to 83; the pond on 15 was expanded more than two-fold; several tees were added, altered or removed. The visual impact on the course is dramatic, introducing beautifully sculpted grass-faced bunkers with surrounding mounds, in a fashion typical of Travis. The placement of the bunkers and new tees creates a variety of shot options for players of all skill levels. The greens remain virtually unaltered from the original Travis design, and as such, rank among the finest in Canada.
The 2009 course renovations were developed by golf course architect Ian Andrew, lead architect for Weir Golf Design. NMP Golf Construction was the contractor for the project, working in conjunction with course superintendant, John Gall, and the Cherry Hill grounds crew.
Menís par is 72, 74 for women players.
