Originally opened as a nine-hole course in 1970, the remaining nine holes of the Cedar Valley Golf Course were not completed until 1977 when it became the first 18-hole championship course in Antigua. The designer, Ralph Aldredge, had the insight to use the rolling terrain and the ocean vistas to bring out the best in his course layout. There are numerous elevated tee boxes and an interesting mix of subtle doglegs, uphill approaches and long par threes.

The beautiful atmosphere of the course will have you playing among tropical trees and Caribbean Sea vistas. This island course features a hilly terrain with wide, tree-lined fairways that are well bunkered. The greens range from flat to undulating, and there are some that are even triple-tiered. Cedar Valley’s signature hole is the par-4 12th hole, which is known for its breathtaking views of St. John’s and the Atlantic Ocean.

There are only 17 bunkers on this course and 6 holes where water may come into play. The real hazards on this layout are the wind and the vistas – your eyes are either being drawn to the mountains or the ocean and the wind blows up and down the mountainous terrain forcing players to consider club selection carefully. Beautiful, mature trees and tropical shrubs and palms line the fairways and provide scenic backdrops to holes where the distant ocean tops off the idyllic landscape.
