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.

Getting there

WOW the greens looks great for this time of year. I can't wait until the grass starts coming in. Everyone there have put in a lot of work in the off season. I think it will be one of the best courses around for the price in no time. Great job Cedar Crest

Excellent course!

Great course on the out skirts of Murfreesboro. Challenging for the average golfer and course conditions were outstanding. All greens were in the best shape of any public course in middle Tennessee.

Impressed

This was a very nice community golf course. The facilities were really nice and staff overly friendly. I was most impressed by the condition of the tee boxes and paths. Unlike many mid price courses there were flowers, shrubs, ball washers, coolers, and colored signs at every hole. You could tell the course was well maintained and the owners took pride in their product.

Very Fun Value Course

Today was my first time playing the course. The course layout is nice and the course is fairly open so wayward shots are not penalized as much as other courses. Overall, it was one of the more enjoyable options in the Nashville area.

Great day

Another great day at cedar crest. Great group and pace of play was well with the exception of the back nine once again. I know it’s more narrow and requires solid shots and not everyone is a pro, but come on you gotta stay within shouting distance of the group in front of you and they didn’t. Otherwise, great round!!

Great round

Great afternoon round. Played with two sons and father and had a good time. Aside from spending almost two and a half hours on the back nine due to members of my group hitting two, three balls a shot or was enjoyable. Course was great!! Love the cart girls. They come around many times and it’s very pleasant and not in a weird way

Great Course.

The course was very well maintained and the greens were “just right”. The back 9 were very tight and they were challenging.

Okay Day

The greens were in great shape. The tee boxes need some work. The range needs some love. New range balls are needed

The pace of play was slower than expected and the cart kept failing to work. Had to reset the tow toggle no less than 20 times.

Horrible experience

We teed off one minute before our time the two behind us stood on the tee box after we hit. They were asked what time their tee off time was they said “later”. Hit into us twice - ruined the first nine holes of golf for us I was concerned they were going to hit me with a ball after the second time they hit the ball it landed behind me and I was only on my second shot from the tee box of the 8 th hole. We went to speak to someone about them and instead of having them hold back they came back to us and asked to let them go past us after the 10th hole. We played the first nine holes in 1 hour and 25 minutes so we weren’t slow! I love the course but won’t come back because of this here. Would love my money back for allowing two men who teed off 10 minutes early to ruin a day of golf
