Cedar Point Country Club in Suffolk, Va., was recognized as NGCOA’s 2019 Private Golf Club Leader. Cedar Point was on the brink of bankruptcy when a group of members banded together to form “Friends of Cedar Point Country Club” and raise the capital necessary. Since then, the new ownership group has focused on streamlining operational efficiencies and making modest capital improvements to the facility.
