Fiddler's Green at Cecil Field Golf Club is located at the Cecil Commerce Center, formerly the Cecil Field Naval Air Station. The golf course was built in 1975 and has been managed by Capstone Golf since 2005.

Needs work

I liked the course layout, but it needs lots of work to be nice again. Carts are junk and forget about even trying to read a putt. Needs major TLC.

Course needs some work

The condition of the greens were in bad shape with an unpredictable roll due to the mud and crabgrass that controlled the direction. The fairways were also lacking real fairway grass but instead had crabgrass and weeds it was sometimes hard to even see your ball when it was in the fairway. It was a nice place to practice golf if you have people that have not golfed much. It was wide open with no one pressuring us from behind. The layout of the course was very good- just needed some tlc (maybe an extra groundskeeper). I’ve seen the course in much better shape on previous visits.

Fairways were not kept up to par couldn't tell where the fairways and the rough started mended greens are not kept up to par but that's to be expected for what we paid for the course so not really complaining just need to have people take care of the course better for others that way the overall experience could change for everyone but all in all a fair day on the golf course beats a crappy day at work

Wasted Time and Money

The course is a piece of *&^ Played one hole and walked away. fair ways not mowed, greens like semi shag carpet. I've been in out-houses that were kept better than the restrooms.

Definitely would never play her again nor will I recommend.

Fairways mowed. A few wet spots. Greens bumpy and fast. Sand traps in good shape. Cart paths good. This is a good course for an average golfer. Played for less than $1 a hole. No challenge for a scratch golfer. Will play again.

Fiddler's Green

The people are friendly the course is only a two-star course could use a lot of maintenance but if you can get it cheap enough go for it.

Good course Great value

The course condition was good. The staff were polite. The pace of play was very good. If you want to play a good round of golf without breaking the bank this is the place to go. I see negative reviews. Well if you are comparing course to other courses that cost 3,4 or 5 times as much, what can you expect.

Good Practice Course

If you want a practice course this is excellent but remember the greens are slow & bumpy. The bunkers are not all soft sand.

Great Practice Course

The course has improved the last year but is still not an upper tier course. Greens are bumpy because not rolled daily or every two days. The fairways still need more grass thickness but are improving. If you are learning or high handicapped player a great course to Horne in your skills. The course is also a disc golf range too so you have to deal with that too.
