Great track

Every time I am near Anniston Alabama I try to play this course. Great layout with some challenging holes and some manageable par 4’s. Love the elevation changes too. Greens were in good shape but a bit slow. Can’t wait to play it again.

Nice Course

I discovered this course several weeks ago. It's a great place to play if traveling from Tuscaloosa/Birmingham to Atlanta (or vice versa). The layout is interesting and very fair if you choose the proper tee box. The greens were a little bit rough a couple of weeks ago after having an excessive amount of rain that week. I returned today to find the course in excellent condition.

The pace of play was great, the staff was friendly, and the design is interesting. Hard to find anything negative to say. I will return.

Course is declining

This use to be a premier course, not sure what is going on, looks like no One cares about the course condition, greens where very bad and the fairways were bald... Whoever is running it needs to be dismissed..This once was a beautiful place to enjoy a round of golf...Silvers Lakes is a much better course and for about the same money..

Beautiful Course that you will Remember

Unlike some boring courses you will not forget your time at Cider Ridge. With the Appalachian mountains as a backdrop many holes are just plain beautiful. The course is well cared for and challenging enough to test your skill but not so hard you won't be able to score. I played with two others who had never played the course (from Maryland and New Jersey) and they loved it. The friendliness of the staff will keep you coming back too. I only rated the food one star because the restaurant was closed due to Covid still. But I have eaten there in the past and the food was great. Lastly, this is a great value course.

Not 5 stars

Golf course layout, pace of play were awesome. If you are a local golfer then this must be a great track to have in your backyard. Based on the price I thought there would be some amenities like check in clerk could give directions to the 1st tee, no starter, no cart person, the clubhouse is not at the turn, and not enough signage for the first-time visitor to not stay lost. All of these can be improved to elevate this to a must-play Alabama course.
