Golf at Cedar Creek

Did you know Cedar Creek is home to an award winning golf course? Shadow Glen features beautiful views, challenging holes, and picturesque surroundings sure to enhance any game.

Voted to the coveted Golf Digest Top 100 list in 1995, Shadow Glen is challenging enough to host a major professional event, but was also built so that the average club players can really enjoy themselves.Shadow Glen winds majestically throughout the community of Cedar Creek, using the rugged terrain of the area to enhance its natural beauty.

The course is nationally known and was named the “Best New Course of the Year” by Golf Digest in 1989. It was included in the “Top 10 Courses in Kansas” by Golf Digest in 1999. Shadow Glen has been ranked in the Top 5 Courses in Kansas every year since its opening and in Golf Digest’s March 2000 issue, Hole #13, was chosen as one of America’s best 18 holes.

Also included in the amenities is a Howard Nearing designed 22,000 square foot clubhouse and extensive practice area. Private rooms are available for every size of event from small, casual luncheons to large, formal banquets and the menus offer a wide range of cuisine. The clubhouse setting takes full advantage of the terrain, offering lovely views of the course from its lofty perch which includes overlooking the 65 acre Shadow Lake. Next month there will be restaurant space for lease inside the clubhouse. The company that is there now has decided that they will build a free standing restaurant after five years at the clubhouse.

Shadow Glen was founded as a not for profit, equity private golf club in 1987, by James and Charles Sunderland, Ash Grove Cement Company. It is the centerpiece of a 3,600 exclusive community in Olathe, Kansas.

The team of Tom Watson, Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish designed the 18-hole golf course which encompasses 7,051 yards from the back tees. Many of the greens are traditional rather than huge and intimidating which rewards the golfer who can read and execute well.
