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.

Towering pines shape the course as it weaves its way around the serene natural setting. Fiddler's Green's generous fairways leave challenging approach shots to some of the smallest putting greens in the area.

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.

A shame

Look im not comparing this to any other golf course..The price is not good for what you get.you can play a way better course for nearly the same price..I went an they cater to the disc golf people.They need to get this place in better shape if they want to charge money...I grew up play here an worked here as a teen when it was in its prime..Would like to see it back again..fingers crossed

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.

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.

Nice Value

Had not played in three years. Wanted to play a course without a lot of water hazards, and wide fairways.
Greens need to be cut, as they were very high and slow.
Typical Military course. Below average condition, but exactly as expected, and a good $ value, and close to home.
If you want a quick round, or either just starting, or have not played for awhile, I would recommend as you can work your way around the course without to much problem.

Frisbee Course. Not A Golf Course

Had To Wait On A Cart Because All The Carts Were Out. Once We Received Our Cart And Playing Hole Number 1 A Single Lady Golfer Goes To Hole #2 as We Where Leaving The First Green And Jumps In Front Of Us. Now We Are Waiting On Number 2 tee Box To Hit The Ball No More Than 50 Yards At A Time Down The Fairway. As We Finally Start To Tee Off There Is A Group Of Frisbee Players On The Right Side Of Fairway About 6 Carts Full With Foul Music And Foul Language screaming Out And Danceing On The Right Side Of Fairway. This Was Sickening As Well As My Friend Had His Little 4 Year Old Daughter With Him. This Is Suppose To Be A Golf Course Not A Vulgar Dance Club. Encounter This Several Times From Different Frisbee Groups Through The Whole Round. I Mean vulgar Danceing And Very Loud Music. Will Never Ever Go Back To This Frisbee Throwing Night Club. This Is Not A Golf Course Any More. Terrible Price For A Terrible Course That Allows This From Its Frisbee Players. Guess When You Dont Keep Your Course Under Control Your Golfers Dont Come And You Rely On This Kinda Trash. Worst Round Ever.
