Cedar Crest Golf Club in Murfreesboro sprawls across rolling farmland accented with groves of mature trees. The fairways on the front nine are wide open but they become narrower and tree lined on the back nine. The greens play fast and true and they are also well conditioned. There are not many sand traps to contend with but a smattering of elevation changes throughout the golf course cause an occasional uneven lie. Seasoned golfers looking for a challenge won't find it here but what you will find is a relaxed atmosphere that is ideal for a quick, casual round that is player friendly enough for beginners. In addition to the course, Cedar Chest Golf Club offers extensive practice facilities including a driving range and a two-tiered practice green.

This was my Second time playing and it was great. The greens on the front had a ton of sand on them. I was told by the staff it was because of crab grass and divots not being fixed. The greens in the back were okay but had a lot of divots that weren’t fixed. My advice is if you come to play any course fix your divots on the green.

While second fairway is near finished, rest of fairways and fringes are in the best shape I have seen in years. Felt like I was at a country club.

Greens a little slow, but true. They keep them pretty moist as they’re bent grass

This was my first time playing this course and I couldn’t ask for a better time. I had the chance to play with a regular that showed me around which was great. The course was playable and challenging at the same time. I definitely will be coming back very soon.

I don’t have a regular group to play with, never have a problem finding someone or maybe I’m the fourth. Course has always been in good shape for the time of year that I have played. Players should fix their ball marks and repair the divots they make and that would make it even better. (8.3)

Nice course. Good value as a HOT DEAL rate. Ongoing improvements in parts of the course. Greens putted to slow in my opinion. Back nine is very tight on some of the holes.

Brought two friends who hadn't played before. Used to Nashville Metro courses, a bit skeptical about driving down to Murfreesboro. By the end of the round, they were fully converted over to CC. Always fun round, back nine is awesome!

First time playing this course, heard a lot about it, Every word was true..

This is what I call a hidden gym, you must play it for yourself to see what I'm referring too. The fairways and greens were in the best shape I've seen of any course around here this year. I will be back for more.

Took a chance on a Hot Deal for the first round of the season, and wish I had chosen differently. The staff were teenagers unequipped to handle the crowds, the course was in rough condition, golfing ability levels varied widely meaning most holes had someone else in our fairway, and the pace of play was painfully slow. I'll check tnis one off the list and look elsewhere.

The course was a pretty the way, but the biggest thing was the pace of play. We had a group in front of us that had no business waiting on greens to clear (as did the group two behind us). The marshal stayed around the perimeter and never came through the interior of the course or did anything. We passed the group that was in front of us at the turn and were never held up on the back. A little pricey for the course, but all in all not bad.
