Location & Founding


Cedar Point Country Club is located at the confluence of the Nansemond and James Rivers in Suffolk. The Civil War ironclads, Monitor and Merrimac, battled in the waters of Hampton Roads just outside the clubhouse windows. Since its founding in 1964, Cedar Point has evolved into one of the premier country club environments in Southeast Virginia.

The crown jewel of the club is the recently renovated 18 hole championship golf course. The course is immaculately maintained with greens that are fast and true. Well groomed bunkers and attractive landscaping reflect the conscientiousness of the caretakers. The golf course is challenging and presents plenty of temptations to the more polished golfer.

Other diversions at the club include a:
  • Complete Tennis Center With Both Indoor and Outdoor Courts
  • Croquet Court
  • Driving Range
  • Putting and Chipping Greens
  • Swimming Pool (Seasonal)

Both the golfing and tennis centers are staffed with certified professionals and include well stocked pro shops.

The Cedar Point clubhouse offers a formal dining room and casual grille room; both with panoramic views of the water. Additionally, the facility contains a private meeting room, art gallery, locker rooms, and the golfing center. An outdoor terrace is a nice area to relax and mingle with friends after any activity. Weekly events keep the clubhouse alive with members and their guests.

Amenities


Designer Tom Doak sculpted the beautiful layout to take full advantage of the natural beauty surrounding it. It is a magnificent waterfront golf design. Tees are typically at ground level, the fairways are generally wide and friendly and chipping areas are plentiful. Large deep bunkers, combined with undulating greens make shot-making crucial. All but three of the 18 holes are bordered on one side by natural features, whether tidal marshes skirting along its fairways or undulating greens at water's edge - with beach bunkers on three sides. Mature pines, oaks and sycamores overhang the marsh, adding beauty and majesty to the design.

Riverfront was voted 4-1/2 stars by Golf Digest and included in "40 best Daily fee courses" by 'Golf and Travel Magazine'. This course is a "must play" in the Hampton Roads area for golfers of all abilities.
