Eighth Wonder of the World
Two teepads per hole, flush with the ground. Distance painted onto teepad.
No signs at teepads, so difficult to find - MUST have the map. A few baskets play close to walking paths, parking lot (long tee #10 is in the middle of a parking lot!), fishing pond, outdoor meeting area, buildings, road, etc.
Most of the course plays along the outer edge of the property forming the Cedar Lakes Convention Center, "composed of a large variety of guest lodging styles with indoor meeting spaces. Cedar Lakes Conference Center provides year-round facilities in a natural setting that enhances any type of program - educational, inspirational, or recreational" , although some the middle holes play near buildings and other parts of the facility.
Other than up-slope on #7, up-n-over slope on #8, and then downhill/across field on #9, the course is quite flat. From the short tees, the distances range from 200'-350', averaging about 250', while from the long tees, which, well, mostly just add length (on only about four holes do the long tees also change the look angle), the distances range from 225'- nearly 500', averaging about 330'. Never did find tee #11 - used the manhole cover for the long tee, and from a gap in the fence near the water for the short tee. The long tee for #16 is behind the CEDAR LAKES sign. Fair blend of left/straight/right shots needed off the tee, with more rights early, and the lefts more prevalent toward the end. #13 is a classic either/or - basket about 225', clump of trees 50' in front of basket.
Favourite holes: #15 is a long, slow left-turner, with a tree-lined river to your right, and a line of flowering trees to your left. While the fairway on #18 is big, flat, and wide, the left turn at the end places the basket near a small amount of water, and a red-painted covered-bridge behind and to the right - very picturesque!
Suitable for a wide range of players, from beginners (hopefully avoiding people and water) to advanced (plenty of birdie opportunities from the short tees, plenty of challenging shots from the longs)
The title? The distance on every hole ends with an '8'!
