The golf course at Cedarbrook Country Club sits on approximately 225 acres of gently rolling landscape in Blue Bell, the heart of Montgomery County, and is free from the intrusion of dissecting roadways and housing developments. Members and guests liken the experience of playing the William Mitchell design to "taking a walk in a secluded park". Surrounded by a distinctively suburban setting, the club is easily accessible to center city Philadelphia.
The Par 72 golf course is characterized by an incredible array of mature tree specimens, several large ponds and the Wissahickon Creek meandering through seven holes. The design is spacious with large, softly undulating greens that make up over four acres in total area. Greens Superintendent, Tim Kelly and his staff take pride in presenting and maintaining high quality playing conditions daily. The course is a favorite among local golfers who enjoy the challenging design but are not overwhelmed by too sever a layout.
Four permanent sets of tees combine with three "blended" tee courses to provide playing options from 5600 yards to over 7000 yards. An 18-Hole PGA approved and USGA rated "Family Course" measuring 4000 yards is available for beginning players or junior honing their golfing skills.
Black Tees Par 72 7100 yards Course Rating 74.4 Slope Rating 136
Blue Tees 6650 yards Course Rating 72.1 Slope Rating 132
White Tees 6143 yards Course Rating 69.5 Slope Rating 125
Red Tees 5584 yards Course Rating 72.1 Slope Rating 128 (Women's Rating)
The practice facilities at Cedarbrook Country Club include a 300+ yard driving range with tee areas at both ends, three short game practice greens complete with bunkering and a large practice putting green.
The Golf Program is led by PGA Professional Brad Nelson and his dedicated staff featuring several PGA Assistant Golf Professionals, a shop manager, caddy master and supporting staff. A full compliment of golf events designed for both the competitive and the social golfer is available for men, women, juniors and seniors throughout the season. Individual instruction, group clinics and club-fitting services are supported by HUDL Technique Video Software, Trackman 4 Launch Monitor and a variety of training aids. In the off season, members continue to work on their golf games by utilizing two indoor Golf Simulators for instruction and playing enjoyment.
A full service Golf Shop makes available the finest selection of men's, women's and junior apparel combined with a complete selection of golf equipment and accessories. A fleet of over 60 golf carts is supported by a professionally managed caddy program supervised by Caddy Master Al DeColli.
