What a wonderful time I had with my 3 sons playing this top notch course! Each hole seemed like it was cut out of the woods. Beverage cart girl was super accomadating. We saw deer, turkey, and geese while playing. Would highly recommend this gem to anyone. Thank you!

I would like to say it was a great time.

The weather was a cool 54 deg. and a little wind.

Rain went through the night before we played.

So we had the course pretty much to our selves.

The course was in great shape with many challenges that you will want to play again.

the greens were some of the fastest that I have played.

Ill be back and maybe bring a little sunshine with me.

thanks

alan

Glacier Woods is a great course hidden in Iola. For early season was in great shape. Have played here before and could not believe how nice the course was for the price. The only issues was the pace of play. Don't know what was holding up everyone, but waited on the first 13 holes. Will play here a lot this year! Thank you Glacier Woods!!

For late in the season the course was well kept. The leaves were pushed into the woods adequately. The sand traps were covered with deer tracks as usual. Good time
