Cedar Crest Golf Club in Murfreesboro sprawls across rolling farmland accented with groves of mature trees. The fairways on the front nine are wide open but they become narrower and tree lined on the back nine. The greens play fast and true and they are also well conditioned. There are not many sand traps to contend with but a smattering of elevation changes throughout the golf course cause an occasional uneven lie. Seasoned golfers looking for a challenge won't find it here but what you will find is a relaxed atmosphere that is ideal for a quick, casual round that is player friendly enough for beginners. In addition to the course, Cedar Chest Golf Club offers extensive practice facilities including a driving range and a two-tiered practice green.

Not good value for the fees

Other nearby courses in better shape and that promote faster play and for less cost.

Love the course, but...

This is one of my favorite public courses to play in middle Tennessee. I love the course layout and how it is all put together. However, when I played there today (Nov 7, 2021) there was an extreme amount of ball marks in most of the greens. I am aware that this is something that the course staff doesn't have much control over, but it was crazy to see all of the imperfections in the greens. This is the first time it was like this for me, but definitely something that I will remember about that round.
Like I said, I absolutely love the course layout and the value of the course at this price point. Definitely going to keep coming here in the future.

Course is in Great Shape.

The course was in great shape. The only issue we saw was on some the greens the previous golfers were not fixing their pitch marks which is completely RUDE.. Other than that the greens were really well maintained.

Good course

It’s high priced for what it is. Dreadfully slow, but it was Saturday morning and cool. Not a bad course, just over priced.

Great value, always in great shape

I have golfed at cedar crest over 10 times now and it never disappoints. Course is really well maintained for the amount of play it receives. Course has a heavy emphasis of trees coming into play, which makes it challenging for some. Overall this is one of the regular courses I go to because of the consistency and layout.

Neat little course

We had to wait about 3 hours to tee off because of the rain but aside from some casual water on the fairways, the course was in great shape. Layout was fair and not as tight as I expected it to be. Greens were smooth and consistent. I would definitely play here again

Needs Work

I wasn't in the best shape after a night of drinking so I knew I wasn't going to play well at all. However, my giant problem with the place was there was no Marshall. They also decided it was a good idea to let someone take their grandkids out on the course which held up absolutely everyone. Played the front in about 2 hours 20 minutes. and then holes 10 and 11 took 55 mins. It was brutal. On top of that it was Labor Day so we already knew it'd be slow. On top of that there was no cart girl coming around. I was dying for a beverage. We also had a guy come spray the greens as we were teeing off on every hole on the back which made it difficult to read putts. I'll be back eventually just not for a while.
