TAHLEQUAH — Visitors to Cherokee Springs Golf Course will soon have to play a nine-hole course for a while, but Cherokee Nation Businesses expects patrons will be pleased when enhancements to the first nine holes are complete.

The renovation project, approved at a Feb. 27 meeting of the Cherokee Nation Businesses board of directors, will cost more than $1 million and begin in the coming weeks.

Shawn Slaton, CEO of Cherokee Nation Businesses, said improvements are needed because of the age of the property and equipment, and that most work not relating to the course is complete.

“Our goal is to provide the best golf experience in the area, right here in the heart of the Cherokee Nation,” he said. “We have replaced the gas carts with a fleet of electric carts, built a new cart barn to support the new electric fleet, improved landscaping and made minor touch-ups to the clubhouse.”
