Cherry Creek opened in 1995, a Mike Bylen/Lanny Wadkins collaboration, is cut through dense forest land a short drive north of Detroit. Once on the course one could almost believe that they are in northern Michigan.
The terrain is fairly flat with no real elevation changes with every hole bordered by woodlands and wetlands. There are a number of forced carries over bogs and natural areas, the driving areas are reasonable but visually the course appears tight. Once near the green one will find a moderate amount of bunkering. The layout is 6,784 yards (73.1/137) from the tips. Three alternate tees are available to lessen the challenge.
