Charlotte, NC

Cedarwood Country ClubCedarwood was designed by noted golf course architect Ellis Maples and was built by Alex Guion as a public golf facility. In 1972, the course was sold to real estate developer Charles Ervin, who planned to use the land as a housing development. American Cyanamid Corp. bought the Ervin Company before the real estate plan could be carried out, thereby saving Cedarwood and allowing it to eventually become a real player in the Charlotte golf market.

American Cyanamid sold the course to Grady Shumate, who had been director of golf for the Ervin Company. In 1976, the club was sold to Luther Creel and Harold Jordan who continued to operate Cedarwood as a daily-fee course. In July 1979, they made the decision to take the club private and invested $800,000–$700,000 for a clubhouse, pool and tennis courts and the rest for course renovation.
