Caddie's Summary:. Established in the Fall of 2001, Cherry Blossom is an excellent public track for any handicap. The fescue/bluegrass blended rough makes the course play a bit tighter than it appears and the greens and fairways are developing very well. Located just 20 minutes from Lexington, the course is in the heart of Thoroughbred horse country. Rolling plaid fairways and lush rough characterizes the layout and a focused day of golf can yield low scores. The club house and amenities are cozy and elegant and the staff is fantastic. For the Lexington area, Cherry Blossom is on the top of the list and is a great play for the fees.
