Cedar Valley is a city in Logan County, Oklahoma, United States. The population was 288 at the 2010 census, nearly four times the population of 58 at the 2000 census].[3] It is part of the Oklahoma City Metropolitan Statistical Area. It is primarily a bedroom community, since more than 90 percent of the employed inhabitants commute to work in other towns. The main attraction is Cedar Valley Golf Club, which is by far the largest business in town.[4]

History[edit]

Golf course developer Duffy Martin constructed the Cedar Valley Golf Club during 1973-4 in rural Logan County, near Cedar Creek, an unincorporated place with 61 residents in 1960. Several residences were also built on the property, and the new community had an estimated population of 33 by 1980. Residents voted to incorporate Cedar Valley in July 1982. Two additional golf courses opened in the early 1980s. The town population returned to 61 in 1990[4]
