Cedar River is a solid course which an average golfer can enjoy
After playing The Chief nearby, this course was a relief. It is typical resort golf in Northern Michigan with some refreshing design touches and a couple of oddities. The 13th hole needs to be viewed from the green on backward to the tee before you play it and 18 is 604 yards from the tips. Maintenance was above average. One or two greens differed noticeably in speed from the other 16. I'd recommend it and play it again myself.

My Favorite Shanty course
Cedar River is both challenging and forgiving at the same time. Course conditions were excellent. This is our golf group's favorite Shanty course.

Played late afternoon.... Only ones on course... Great rate through golf now.... Every hole was extremely asthetically appealing and was postcard worthy.... A very fair test of golf!!! Will definitely play again!!!

Par 5s make the day at Cedar River
I'm a huge fan of courses like Cedar River that consist of five par 5s and five par 3s. These unique designs give players more opportunities at a career highlight, whether it be reaching a par 5 in two or sinking an ace. Cedar River's par 5s at no. 9 and no. 10 allow even average-length hitters like me the chance to reach in two. The stretch of holes no. 6-8 in an open meadow is beautiful. The Cedar River runs along the left side of the par-4 13th and par-3 14th, providing a scenic element that Weiskopf wanted to make better use of but couldn't for environmental reasons. The toughest hole on the course might be no. 18, a long par 5s with ravines and a pond. It's a strong finish for one of northern Michigan's best courses.

Great course and views
The course has great views. The undulations of the fairways make a well placed shot a premium. Pleasure to play

Must try it to enjoy it.
My friend and I spent the morning on the Cedar River course and enjoy the course very much. It has problems and wide enough fairways even for not so great golfers like myself. Always a pleasure to golf Shanty courses.

This course has great features.
There were only a couple of holes that were somewhat challenging.
The views were excellent.
The greens were fast.
They have a very nice halfway house very accomadating.
Sufficient port-a-johns that had privacy surrounding them.
