All greens on the course were long and narrow in shape. This means your approach shot must be very straight. Flag colour indicates pin position. Minor contours are visible. Be firm with your putts as it's easy to leave a long putt short.
Yardage markers are very difficult to find. I could only locate the 150 yard marker with any regularity.
Fairways were a bit erratic in quality.
You'll start you round with a couple of very narrow holes with trees eagerly waiting to knock down a less than straight ball.
Three sets of tees with the back two tees (white/blue) used for the front and back nines. The front tees (yellow) are used for shorter hitters.
Yardage signs are available but not always clearly detailed.
Cedar Valley has a very plain layout. The lack of variety of shape of greens may bother some players. The course is flat and a very easy walk. A couple of marshy environmental areas are the only real threats to losing a ball.
Great bargain! For the first time in my 52 years I was able to take advantage of senior pricing. I paid a mere $11.50 for a nine hole round. This is the best pricing I've paid in a long time.
The difficulty is in the shape of the greens and the narrow fairways on holes #1 and #2. It's tough to hit a fairway with a driver to start your round.
There is not much of interest to see on course besides the old shed on the 7th tee.
The course is clean with lots of garbage cans located on course.
When I arrived I had to wait a few minutes as the gentleman was busy discussing an issue with another staff member. When I was served it was quick and friendly.
An older building but a reasonable size. The pro shop had a few unique items available for sale; namely a few rare books and cards.
There was lots of doors around the outside of the building but the pro shop can be found at the rear.
The course has a QGA rating on the scorecard and I can only guess how long ago this rating was updated.
I required the scorecard to navigate the course.
My guess is Cedar Valley caters to senior golfers during weekdays. For the price of 9 holes it probably can't be beat.
The course would be great for beginners and families.
