Very enjoyable round of golf. Played in less than four hours. Fairways were in great shape, especially after receiving eight inches of rain in last four days. Due to aeration the greens were very bumpy, which is why I didn’t give a perfect score. The course, also, had a great practice area. I will definitely be back.

Beautiful!

Another great round at Cider Ridge! We had a great time! Weather forecast showed 60% chance of rain so we were little afraid that we will get wet today but it is Alabama after all and it was sunny all day. Course is in a great condition, rough is recently cut so if you’re not in a fairway, you can still find your ball...So bring your golfing buddies and have yourselves some fun people!

Cider Ridge Review

This course starts off rather flat, but soon you can see it was carved into the Mt. Cheaha & Talladega Natl Forest Regions of Alabama. It offers four to five sets of tee boxes on each hole, so you can bite off as much as you can chew. You better be in good physical condition to handle the ups & downs of the terrain, specially on the back nine.

The greens are bent grass & even tho they had been hole-punched & sanded recently, they would still hold an approach shot. The speed & undulation makes putting fairly difficult. The fairways were excellent, cut at about 3/4 inches which allowed players to get a club under the ball on fairway shots.

Need Beverage Carts

Need Beverage carts on the course. Put them out there consistently and players will use them. Your soft drink supplier will typically supply the carts.

Other than that everything is fantastic!!

Great

It was a hot day but course was in excellent condition. The only thing we were little annoyed by was grass cutting crew that accompanied us for last 4 holes.

Cider Ridge

This course is in amazing shape, and is the tale of two 9’s. The front features more of a neighborhood type feel with beautiful houses hugging the fairways. The back however, is considerably harder with tight fairways and some picturesque wilderness. This course gives a big time PGA feel to the amateur golfer. It is surprisingly affordable when using GolfNow, and I HIGHLY recommend Cider Ridge. It is an awesome experience!

Cider Ridge

This course is in amazing shape, and is the tale of two 9’s. The front features some beautiful house that line many of the fairways and the back features some beautiful wilderness. The back is exceptionally more difficult than the front. This course gives that feel of a big time PGA course while still remaining playable for an amateur. This course is amazingly affordable and is a great challenge. I HIGHLY recommend it!

Perfect in May

I play this course about 5 times a year on avg. This year (april 2018), is the best shape i have ever seen it. Greens are perfect. Fairways are in mid summer form already by the month of may. sometimes the pace of play is slow.

Amazing

Played this course on Friday and Saturday, the first time around was frustrating but the second time was perfect. Ver challenging layout that definitely rewards knowledge of the course. One of the most beautiful courses I've ever played. Only complaint I had was the GPS on the cart didn't give you yardages. Would play this course every week if I lived in the area, unfortunately that's not the case.

Aerated with no warning.

Booked my round through Golfnow and there was no warning that the greens had been aerated. Actually booked a round here because my home course had been aerated and I didn't want to play on aerated greens. Drove an hour each way for nothing.

Course gets an A, amenities get an F

Cider Ridge is in much better shape than my last trip.

Bare spots on some greens are no longer there. Greens were very good.

Fairways were better than I expected given the amount of rain we have had recently. No complaints with the golf course.

However, there are some major deficiencies elsewhere. My tee time was 10:36am and I arrived plenty early to warm up. I saw three fivesomes sent out. Not sure that is the best idea on a Friday mid morning at a busy public course when tee times are steady.

No water on course. All of the stations were missing water coolers. Why?

Carts are equipped with GPS, only they show just the hole diagram and an endless stream of ads. Pin locations are not marked so ZERO yardages are available. This is unacceptable for a Troon property.
