The revered A.W. Tillinghast didn’t do many Texas courses, but old 1919 Cedar Crest was one of them, a course that hosted the 1927 PGA Championship won by Walter Hagen. Tillie’s design takes advantage of this unusually hilly area of Dallas, with generous tree-lined fairways that often leave you with uneven lies. The trick here is in dealing with the small, fast greens, which are hard to hold–especially on the long par 3s. Four of the five par 3s play over 200 yards from the tips.

The city of Dallas bought the course in 1947 for $130,000 and has owned it ever since. The clubhouse was renovated recently.

Getting there : From Hwy. 45 south, take the Martin Luther King Jr exit and turn right. This road turns into Cedar Crest, which dead- ends at the course.

    The course is situated in a very depressed area. It has some great sites as you can see downtown Dallas from some of the holes. The greens are fast but are not at this time in good conditions.

    However the fairways are nice and the course although short is very challenging. Many of the greens and postage stamp size.

    I will be coming back. The burgers were great as well.
