Frost delay

Course layout was good for any level golfer. My course GPS didnt seem to match the course layout however. Inside staff were great. Frost delay kept us on a 2.5 hour delay. They granted permission for us to start on hole 10 since we were only playing 9 holes.

Greens are dead

I have played the cedars in the past and it was a tad swampy but a pretty solid course. New management has allowed greens to die off on 16 holes .

Believe the bad reviews!

Don't think the reviews are overly harsh... The two some I played with said it was worse in the summer when they played, and I can not imagine paying for it. They were new to golf and got a gift certificate from family. What a waste of money! A note to the management: PLEASE START TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR COURSE.

Better Than The Reviews

Wow. These reviews are brutal, which is why I have avoided playing here until today.

I didn’t see a course in poor repair. I saw one green that needed some help, but overall, things were very shipshape. They had two cuts to the fairways, which really added to the enjoyment.

It was really wet today, but the greens were beautifully designed and well-maintained. The ball rolled the way it should have - no nasty surprises. The greens are spacious , with excellent soil foundations and drainage, and shaping and tiers which make them fun to play. There’s a well-defined and maintained fringe, forcing chip/putt decisions for those of us with marginal abilities.

The course is absolutely beautiful, It’s short (only one par 5, but it’s a nice, long one), but the par 4s are very interesting. You won’t be ripping a driver and driving the green (with a couple of exceptions), but will be playing a game requiring precise ball placement on fairways that narrow strategically and punish errant shots.

This is a course which is designed in every detail to reward those who love the game.

If you like the layout of Camas Meadows, but want to be able to play without a cart, this is a course you will love.

It’s a walkable links layout - a rare gem.

I would like to see them vary their rates the way Mint Valley does. $40 is reasonable, but a little steep on a rainy day.

Check the slope ratings. If you like a challenge that rewards shotmaking, this is a course for you. I’ll be back. And when I’m playing, the only place you’re safe is on the green :)

Course in bad shape

Heard a lot of rumors from other golfers that this course was in bad shape and they will never go back. I found a “hot deal” today for Cedars and I thought, why not see it first hand. Really disappointed in the condition of the course. Not sure who owns this course but may be time to sell it to someone who will actually put in the work (and money) to make it a playable course. Play many different courses in the area and they are nowhere in this bad of shape. Hopefully they can find new owners that will take pride in this place.

The course is in terrible shape! They should be giving a huge discount instead of charging more. The course needs serious help

Lot of work needed here...........

Course is in very much need of repairs in many ways. Greens were very slow, had no grass in many spots, brown spots - cracks around outside edges. Many fairways had no grass, mixture of hard dead spots, dirt and small rocks. really run down from a few years ago when I last played here. Cut a few par 5's into a par 3&4 due to house construction and loss of two holes. I would doubt this course will be around in future if no changes in maintenance.

A Diamond Coated In Neglect!

I want to choose my words here carefully! I want to say to everybody, this is really a course that we all should be making teetimes to play. At the same time, I would understand after playing it once, you may not put it very high on your list of courses to return to. To me, this is the sad part. I absolutely love these 18 holes, but with the condition the course is in it almost makes you want to cry. It’s truly a beautiful 18 hole track that if it had green fairways and If some professional could fix the grass on the greens, I’d play this course every single weekend, and I don’t even live in Washington. The actual greens, the design of the greens are amazing and brutal, but with the condition they are in, again it just makes you want to cry, because you see the potential that is there yet, whether I’m right or not it just looks like neglect., Or they don’t have a true superintendent who knows how to grow grass properly. In the end, if you have not played this course I personally would recommend you to go see this amazing track, but don’t expect plush Fairways or smooth greens, and if you go there knowing this, you will enjoy yourself and you may even come back hoping that they can get it all fixed.

Not that bad

Some reviewers really unloaded on the course. It's good to have your expectations low. You can see this was once a terrific course but has fallen on hard times. There's a lot of housing going up around it. I heard that the course was torn up to put some pipe in last winter and two holes were sold off so the back nine is only a par 32 now. Maybe 12 holes are in acceptable shape and the rest are a mess. Hopefully they can bring this beauty back.

Was pleasantly surprised. Reviews were not good. Would definitely play there again. Some of the greens were a little rough, but enjoyed it.

Curse challenges players ability

Been playing for the last 7 weeks and each week the course has improved the greens and fairways. The sand traps are in disrepair . 3 fairways are in need of over seeding , small pebbles left from the construction . Hoping for continued improvement. .

Even if its free wouldn't play it again.

first time at the course. No range. Course is in terrible condition. Greens are dead. Fairways literally have gravel only in some spots. You will waste more money hitting your clubs off the gravel fairways. Bushes are all over grown. Such a waste because its a great setting with lots of water surrounding the course. If it was half way maintained.
