The par 72 golf course is characterized by an incredible array of mature tree speciments, several large ponds and the Wissahickon Creek meandering through seven holes. The design is spacious with large, softly undulating greens that make up over four acres in total area. Greens Superintendent Rob Nolek and his staff take pride in presenting and maintaining high quality playing conditions daily. The course is a favorite among local golfers who enjoy the challenging design but are not overwhelmed by too severe a layout.
Four permanent sets of tees combined with three "blended" tee courses provide many options to play from 5600 yards to over 7000 yards. Two 18-hole PGA approved and USGA rated "Family Courses" measuring 3000 yards and 4000 yards are available for beginning players or juniors honing the golfing skills.
Black Tees Par 72 7100 yards Course Rating 74.4 Slope Rating 136

The practice facilities at Cedarbrook Country Club include a 300+ yard driving range with tee areas at both ends, three short game practice greens complete with bunkering, and a large practice putting green.
The golf program is led by PGA Professional Brad Nelson and his dedicated staff featuring several PGA Assistant Golf Professionals, a shop manager, caddy master and supporting staff. A full compliment of golf events designed for both the competitive and the social golfer is available for men, women, juniors and seniors throughout the season. Individual instruction, group clinics and club-fitting services are supported by HUDL Technique Video Software, Trackman 4 Launch Monitor and a variety of training aids. In the off season, members continue to work on their golf games by utilizing two indoor Golf Simulators for instruction and playing enjoyment.
A full service Golf Shop makes available the finest selection of men's, women's and junior apparel combined with a complete selection of golf equipment and accessories. A fleet of over 60 golf carts is supported by a professionally managed caddy program supervised by Caddy Master Al DeColli.
