Cedarock Disc Golf Course
The first disc golf course at Cedarock is the Cedarock Disc Golf Course. It is the longer of the two courses, but is more open with grass fairways. It is a 18-hole course with ameteur and professional tees and baskets.
Wellspring Disc Golf Course
The Wellspring Disc Golf Course is the shorter and older of our two courses, but in some ways, it is much more challenging than the other course. Wellspring is an 18-hole course that plays through a heavily wooded section of Cedarock Park, making accuracy more important than power. It features amateur and professional tees.

History of the Farm
Taken from "The John and Polly Garrett Story" from the Cedarock Historical Farm pamphlet.
The Garrett and Albright families have been intertwined for generations in
Alamance County. Brothers Ludwig and Jacob Albright's great-granddaughter Polly Albright (1815-1884) married John F. Garrett (1811-1882), and they settled in the western part of present day Cedarock Park.
In 1830, they constructed a small log house which survives as one of the earliest structures in the district. In 1835, they constructed the two-story house. The log house continued to be used as a kitchen for the next 30 years.
According to the 1850 Census and Agricultural Schedules, John Garrett (age 39) and Polly (age 35) lived at the house with their children David (11), Henry (9), George (7), and Sophia (1 month). They owned 5 slaves; an adult male and female (age 45 and 39 respectively) and their sons (age 7, 6, and an infant).
John Garrett's farm was valued at $1,150. It was comprised of 85 improved and 30 unimproved acres. It was a typical Alamance County farm in size and value. It was also typical that Mr. Garrett owned only a few slaves, therefore he did much of the work himself. He owned 4 horses, 9 cows, 5 sheep, and 20 swine. His total livestock was valued at $283. Each season, Garrett grew 85 bushels of wheat, 800 bushels of corn, 150 bushels of oats, and 20 bushels of potatoes.
The Garrett farm survived the Civil War, but the 1870 Agricultural Schedule revealed that its value was considerably lessened because of the war. The Garrett farm did survive, and we are proud to recreate this farm setting.
