Cedar Valley is set quite spectacularly on high ground, affording panoramic views of the Caribbean coastline. Ralph Aldridge originally laid out the course in 1970 as a 9-holer. Seven years later, the course was extended to 18 holes and it immediately became Antigua’s first and only 18-hole championship course.

Viv Richards is possibly the most famous Antiguan sportsman and one of the greatest cricketers of all time. Everyone knows that cricketers enjoy the odd game of golf but it was a pleasant surprise to bump into him at Cedar Valley when we last played here in April 2002.

The Cedar Valley design is at once thrilling and the layout plots its way up and down the valley in a charming manner. Mature tropical trees flank many of the fairways and they certainly come into play if you are slightly wayward.

Measuring 6,157 yards with par set at 70, Cedar Valley is not that long, but it does provide a challenging test for all levels of golfer. The first hole, which measures more than 400 yards from the back tees, sweeps to the right and it’s probably one of the hardest holes on the course and a brutal opener hole for many golfing holidaymakers.

We think Cedar Valley is the best course on Antigua and if the condition could be improved we’re convinced that this could be one of the Caribbean’s best courses.

I was a member from 2007-2008 and the condition of the course was much improved over that time. It is a very beautiful course with each hole offering different challenges. Notable are the 6th with its dramatic views from the elevated tee, the 9th which tempts the bold and ends with a glorious green, the 14th and 16th either side of the dried up lake (which remains a blot on the course) both of which are challenging but great fun. Far better tha any of the other courses in Antigua. The clubhouse is great place to hang out.

I played this course in 1992 when I was a beginner and it is a beautiful course. Stunning scenery all around. Very nice and I would love to see it now 15 years later.

Cedar Valley Golf Club AntiguaFirst of all Antigua is a wonderful island as most people I'm sure would agree if they've been lucky enough to spend some time here, but Antigua hasn't yet got a really top-class golf course. However Cedar Valley could very come close, all it needs is a sympathetic renovation and a little TLC. If the club could improve the all-round course condition then who knows? Wonderful elevation changes make this a really exciting course and the views are simply delightful. I'd certainly play here again and enjoyed meeting Curtly Ambrose, but the course could be so much better.
