Opened in 1965, Cedar Rock Country Club made waves in North Carolina golf, being ranked as the third best course in the state in 1970. Golf Digest Magazine listed Cedar Rock as one of the best 100 courses in America in 1969-1970 as well. Boasting a championship layout with Bermuda Fairways and Bentgrass greens Cedar Rock is a treat in the western part of North Carolina.
