Mayor Eric Johnson and Mayor Pro Tem Carolyn R. Arnold will showcase new improvements and amenities recently completed at Cedar Crest Golf Course. The iconic Oak Cliff course reopens after undergoing months-long renovations that feature the addition of Legends Plaza, a homage to Walter Hagen, 1927 PGA Champion, and Charles Sifford, 1954 UGA Negro National Open Champion.

Golfers will enjoy new greens, bunkers, updated natural grass driving range and a stylish banquet area. A.W. Tillinghast – known as the Picasso of golf architect – designed the historic 18-hole course that was the site of the 1926 Dallas Open and 1927 PGA Championship. In 1954, Cedar Crest hosted the UGA Negro National Open and USGA Public Links Championship.

The reopening of the golf course takes place at 1800 Southerland Ave. with a ribbon cutting ceremony Friday, Sept. 30 at 8 a.m. Following the ribbon cutting ceremony, Cedar Crest will offer tours of the course and facility, and Radio One Dallas will host the 10th Annual Celebrity Golf Classic. The historic golf course has been closed the past three months for a greens maintenance and will be open for public use on Monday, October 3, 2022.
