Golf at Cider Ridge

Golf at Cider Ridge 

Located in Midway between Birmingham, Ala. and Atlanta, Ga. in Calhoun County, Cider Ridge Golf Club features a 6,946-yard, 18-hole golf course nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains.

Designed by Alabama-based Bill Bergin, this par 72, regulation golf course is situated at the base of the Alabama’s tallest mountain - Mt. Cheaha. The front nine plays similar to a traditional parkland style course with tree-lined fairways,100-year-old majestic oaks and streams including the Choccolocco Creek. The back nine offers many rolling hills, elevation changes, mountain vistas, dense hardwood forests, and water features including the Little Hillabee Creek and natural waterfall which exists on the signature hole(#12) to this day.
In fall of 2010, the golf course underwent a one million dollar restoration. As part of the restoration, improvements were made to the course drainage and sand bunkers, along with the repairing of concrete carts paths and construction of asphalt cart paths. New maintenance procedures were implemented which dramatically improved overall course conditions and greens resulting in rave reviews from local and regional golf publications in the spring of 2011.
