This is a great course, particularly for the price. Cedar Crest opened as a country club in 1919 was home of the 1927 PGA championship. The City of Dallas purchased Cedar Crest in 1946. In 2004, D. A. Weibring renovated the course by regrassing the fairways, greens and tees with hybrid Bermuda turf, adding new sand bunkers, construction of a new golf practice range, plus the addition of a new clubhouse and banquet facility.
Cedar Crest offers a great variety of playing conditions with no two holes the same. Taking advantage of the rolling hills of South Dallas, you'll find plenty of elevation changes as the fairways go up and down the hills. Nine holes are doglegs adding a lot of variety and some challenges. Water can come into play on 10 holes and trees line all of the fairways. Most of the traps are on both sides of the green, requiring a more precise approach shot.
The fairways and greens were both in very good shape. Greens were about average size, some are table top (a number of times we watched our ball roll off the green, requiring a chip back up the hill) and gently sloping – a couple greens had some minor undulation. The greens seems true and fast and we had a tough time reading the breaks.
Par is 71 with 6 par 3s and 5 par 5s. The staff was very friendly and courteous. The views are fantastic, one hole has a great view of the Dallas skyline. Cedar Crest is well worth playing
