The Cherokee Run golf course, which was awarded to the city of Conyers in court from previous owners who filed for bankrupcy, is set to open Dec. 10.
The course has undergone extensive renovations since it was turned over to the city in September. The city recently set up a $2 million budget as a enterprise fund for the facility, which is located at 1595 Centennial Olympic Parkway, near the Georgia International Horse Park, which is also owned and operated by the city. The course will be open for play and the lounge open for lunch.
Initially, there was a possibility the course would not be able to open until March 2011.
Cherokee Run's Director Tommy Moon said, "There was a question whether we were going to wait until spring to give the greens more time, but they’ve responded." Some renovation work will continue, such as repairing bunkers and clearing brush.
"We'll continue making it better," Moon said,"and get it back to a championship Arnold Palmer venue."
Moon said he was happy to see the facility brought to this point. "I think the citizens are ready for us to open it."
