Checking out The Cedars

Updated: August 31, 2011

The Cedars, an 18-holer located in Brush Prairie, just east of Vancouver.

The course opened for play in 1977. There are a few houses lining the nearly 6,500-yard layout but there’s also a wilderness experience to like about The Cedars.

There is plenty of water to negotiate, including a creek and some ponds. One of the top holes you will encounter is the 16th hole, a 395-yard par-4 which has a narrow fairway and has water right and trees to the left.

The course is one of the most popular tracts in the area and worth the trip. With all of its challenges and playability it is a must play.
