Course Review and Comments

Playing Cedar Valley is like reading a book rich in caribbean history and story. To appreciate it one needs to study it some and learn of the local characters like Luke and Jodi Aldridge and Bascus and Atty Ralph Francis and Bob Guinnup and Denny Foster and Pat Skerrit and Stephen Winter Ralph the bad ketchup man and all the girls in the kitchen and most of all a tough little guy with a big heart and bigger visiob for golf in the caribbaen Ralph Aldridge, say hello and thank him when you walk out of the club. Playing golf here is much more than hitting it good. Smell the air... it does not get better.

Course Design Rating
Course Design Comments Ralph Aldridge created this unique golf club with little more than a tractor, a couple cows to chew the grass down into fairways and a machete man. It is an amazing layout.
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Rating
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Comments It is a roughed test of golf that US players are often not adapted to. One day it could be driver driver to a par 4 and a driver wedge the next depending on the wind. The greens are naturally grainy and the same for every player.
Course Service Rating
Course Service Comments The girls in the kitchen have been there since I was but a boy. Luke Arnold runs the place from day 1 in 1970 for Ralph Aldridge.
Course Facilities Rating
Course Facilities Comments I once accidently fell asleep in the bunker right of 18 and I woke up to cheers of Cedar Valley Members looking down upon me and my friend from the clubhouse porch/restaurant. the staff brought me a rum punch and another day at cedar valley GC begun.
