Upton Golf, LLC doing business as Cedar Pines Golf Course officially opened on May 1, 2016, but preparations started in August of 2015.
Owners Neil and Victoria Schiller, and Jory Hillman wanted to keep the golf course going and set to work providing a place for not only golf, but events such as weddings, receptions, meetings, dinners, and reunions. There are nine holes, a driving range, as well as meals and liquor available in the Clubhouse. The Cedar Pines Golf Course has been an important part of Upton since it opened in the late 1970’s.
Upcoming events are the Joe Haynes Memorial Golf Tournament during Fun Days on July 16th and 17th, and the Kids Golf Camp to be held July 27th through the 29th. Ladies Night is on Wednesdays and Men’s Golf is Thursdays. There is currently a tournament in the works for late August.
Their goal was to have fifty memberships the first year and they have exceeded that with 33 single memberships and 20 family memberships. They average 17 golfers per day right now, and look forward to that number increasing.
