Cherry Blossom Golf Club takes some pride in the low number of bunkers that players will experience during a round; just 38, with a mere 15 on the front nine. That said, a few of the ponds on the back will more than make up for what’s missing in sand.

Although the par five at No. 9 may have a small green-side pond, the first 11 holes will serve strategic golf without severe penalization for those who go off-line. No. 12 may be a shock to the system, an island green par three appearing after such a comfortable first half. No. 13 also features a sizable lake along the right side.

That lake makes a grand return during the closing hole, a 440-yard par four that features a forced carry, with the water remaining all along the right-hand side of the hole. Of the course’s minimal bunker total, nine of them will occur on this final hole. Clyde Johnston has designed many courses in the Hilton Head-area that display the tendency toward a plurality of bunkers and water hazards. He kept a humble mindset throughout the majority of Cherry Blossom, seemingly letting it all out on the final hole.

Cherry Blossom is a nice place. The course starts off a little slow, as most of the Front 9 doesn't have anything that stands out until you reach #8. which is a good short Par 4 with a beautiful old barn framing the hole. That hole is followed up by a great risk/reward Par 5 in the 9th, with a beautiful curved/sloped fairway leading to a large green guarded by a pond on the left. The 12th has a great island green, not all that dissimilar from the 17th at TPC Sawgrass. The course ends on a high note with a brutal Par 4 in the 18th that's got a myriad of bunkers and a lake on the right which is what the aforementioned 12th hole plays around. The course was in very reasonable conditions for early October. Some barren/burnt out spots throughout the course, quite a few bunkers lacked a proper amount of sand, and some tee boxes were seriously missing some grass, but it's a good looking place. I'd recommend it to any casual golfer. It's not Valhalla or Idle Hour, but it's a solid public track without a doubt.
