Considering the amount of rain we have received this year Cherry Creek was in very nice shape. Fairways were tight, greens were rolling well and rough was thick. As usual staff was great and food at 19th was good.

The course was recently aerated but was not told that fact when booking. It was a cold day with next to no one on the course and I was playing with one other person and requested a cart which I was denied. Horrible customer service.
