Great Cours5

This course was amazing! My first time playing I was to busy trying to take in all the natural surroundings in scenery. The back nine has some nice views. Greens and bunker were a great shape. I would recommend this course.

Alright course

This is the 2nd time I've played this course in the last 3 years. This year it was cart path only on 10 of the 18 holes which is crazy for the way this course plays and the hills you have to walk. Most of the greens had bad spots in them where we had to move our ball to putt. It was in a lot better condition and more relaxed cart rules the last time we played here.

Greens

Not the Cider Ridge I'm used to playing. Love the course but don't know what has happened but the greens were in good shape. Don't mind paying for a nice course but don't feel like we got our money's worth. Guess I should have realized something was up when I was able to get the first time for the Saturday before Labor Day on the Thursday night before. When asked would I recommend to a friend not till they either offer better deals or get things fixed.

Excellent besides staff

Played for the first time at Cider Ridge. We were very impressed with the course conditions and layout. However, we were not thrilled with the customer service in the clubhouse. Both interactions with the staff member was unpleseant to say the least. Made us feel unwelcomed and unappreciated. Besides that we had a great day at Cider Ridge.

Nice interesting layout

First time, great track. Course condition was very nice.
Love the elevation changes on the back, but can get in trouble quickly. Knowing course ahead of time would be an advantage
Will play again

Fun and challenging course

Awesome time with my son. We love the course. It’s in fantastic condition especially the greens. Provides a challenging and fun layout. Only complaint is that they did not have a beverage cart going around or water coolers filled (I’m thinking it’s because of the Covid-19 stuff) we had a blast!

Cider Ridge

Cider is in great shape right now. If you and your buddies can snag one of their hot deals you won’t regret it. One of the prettiest and best courses in East Alabama.

Cider Ridge

Cider Ridge is very much a tale of 2 nines. The front nine is considerably easy and scorable. The front follows the famous Choccolocco Creek. It is very beautiful and not overly hard. The back 9 however, plays like a completely different course. It is much more target golf and is considerably more narrow. You have to hit it straight on the back. 16 is the hardest hole which allows ZERO room for error.
I’m by no means a great golfer and I play this course a lot. It is definitely a challenge, but it’s very enjoyable and the value is unbeatable, my favorite course no doubt in my area (East Central Alabama).

Very good course for the money

This course is very beautiful as well as a very good test of golf. Some holes are very tight but very fun to play. I was well pleased with the course condition. Twilight is very good deal. Hope you enjoy.

Nice course - poor grouping management

Course was in great shape considering the amount of rain during the previous days. Challenging course. Requires strategic play. The main issue is that this appears to be run like a good ole boys club. I had an afternoon to grab a round and decided to try Cider Ridge again since I had not played there in about a year. Being a single, I arrived 1hr 15m early with hopes to be paired up with less than a four-some. I asked at check-in if I could or would be paired with another group, and was told that there were no slots available. Ended up teeing off behind a group of 5, and in front of a two-some. The group of 5 allowed me to play through on hole 4. I then caught up with another two-some. It could be that they do not look kindly on people who grab Hot Deals.
It's a great course if you want a challenge. Just be prepared if you are not a local, that you will not receive consideration to make your round an enjoyable one.
