Shanty Creek - Cedar River


Shanty Creek Resorts offers four different golf courses including Tom Weiskopf's Cedar River, Arnold Palmer's the Legend, the Schuss Mountain Course, and the original Summit Course. The Cedar River Course has been ranked as one the country's "Top 100 Resort Courses" by GolfWeek and is also among the "Top 1,000 Courses in the World." At 6,989 yards from the back tees, it's the longest of any of the four layouts. The golf course winds through mature hardwoods but also stretches across open, grassy meadows, providing plenty of variety throughout. There are some tough holes that will test even seasoned golfers but five sets of tees guarantees that it's suitable for any skill level. Cedar River's ninth and 10th holes are reachable par 5s, even for high handicappers. The golf course ends with a par 5 as well, one of its toughest holes. You'll face both a ravine and a pond on this long hole.
