Cedar Crest Country Club first opened for play in 1962. Located amid the rolling farmlands of southeast Iowa, Cedarcrest Golf & Country Club stands as testimony to the "can-do" spirit exemplified by the citizens of Columbus Junction. The initial construction of Cedrcrest began in the early 1960's with excavation, green development and planting being largely performed by community volunteers. Local farmers, businesses, electricians and plumbers supplied their talent and equipment towards course development and clubhouse erection. Once a family-owned farm, many of the hardwood trees and majestic native pines that provided shade and comfort in bygone years continue to grace the grounds of Cedarcrest
