Cedar Point Golf Course
The picturesque Cedar Point Golf Course at NAS Patuxent River features a par 72 championship course that stretches to 6,714 yards from the longest tees. The course features well-bunkered greens with narrow, tree-lined bermudagrass fairways, and spectacular views of the Chesapeake Bay and Patuxent River.
The original nine holes o?pened in 1947 but a planned extension of runway 24 prompted the need for a new layout. Historical documents show that Robert Trent Jones visited the site in 1952 to offer his design services. Ultimately, the current design was produced by Fred Findlay and opened for play in 1954. (Mr. Findlay’s older brother, Alexander, known as the “Father of American Golf”, was also a golf course architect who designed courses beginning in the late 1800’s). The golf course went through a complete renovation in 1998-1999 to include new USGA bentgrass greens, bunkers, tees, upgraded irrigation, and a full-service clubhouse. A second bunker renovation project was completed in 2014.
Course Amenities Include: Pro Shop, PGA instruction, Mulligans Grill, two practice greens, two practice fairways, a target green and driving range. The course is open year round, weather permitting.
