Biography

Cedar Crest Golf Course, formerly Cedar Crest Country Club, is a public golf course in Dallas, Texas. South of downtown, the course was designed by A. W. Tillinghast and was the site of the tenth PGA Championship in 1927, won by Walter Hagen. It was his fourth consecutive PGA title and fifth overall, the ninth of his eleven major championships. It also hosted the Dallas Open in 1926, won by Macdonald Smith.

Established in 1916 and opened in 1919, the course is where a young Harry Cooper honed his skills. The country club was closed in 1929, changed ownership, and then was purchased by the city in 1946. It hosted the United Golf Association Negro National Open in 1954, and the USGA's Public Links Championship later that year.

A new $2 million clubhouse was built in 2001 and the course was renovated in 2004 by D. A. Weibring.

Cedar Crest Golf Course continues to be a favorite of Dallas golf enthusiasts. With its rolling terrain, greenside bunkers, and tree-lined fairways, every golfer gets an opportunity to compete, as the champions of 1927 did, for a fraction of a price.
