Cedarhurst Golf Club
When it opened in 1922, Cedarhurst Golf Club wasn't an 18-hole course. It wasn't even a nine-hole course, a driving range, or an early simulator made with a scrolling painted screen. It opened with just three holes, and remained that way for four years until renowned architect Stanley Thompson came along to bring it up to a nine-hole layout. Mr. Thompson himself would go on to a decorated career as a course architect, designing courses such as Banff Springs and Jasper Park and founding the American Society of Golf Course Architects. Cedarhurst, meanwhile, continued to expand, with a clubhouse built in 1935 and a back nine designed by Bert Turcotte that was added in 1964.
Today players pass through that original clubhouse en route to a round on the 18-hole course. They might notice a marked difference between the front and back nines, primarily between Thompson's narrow fairways and small greens on the front and Turcotte's extreme length and large greens on the back. Even so, the most difficult hole is the par 3 third, where players must crush a 243-yard tee shot while being careful to avoid the out-of-bounds area that runs down the right side.
