I have played this track often over the last 8 years or so. It’s had its ups and downs, but is definitely back on its way up. I played here about 6 weeks ago and noticed more improvements on some of the small problems from before. Spoke to the guy in the pro shop and he was passionate about making patriots Glen a pristine course again. I’ve seen it before, and hoping they get back to it. Keep up the good work. I will DEFINITELY play again, and recommend everyone come play it and see how nice it’s becoming.

Thank you for taking the time to review the course. We apologize that our team was not ready and waiting as expected when guests arrive at the course. Our opener was sick that morning so the team was scrambling to get everything set up with one less set of hands. This is not the standard we strive to achieve and hope you can give us a second chance. We see you rated the pace of play and layout to be great during your visit.

Obviously playing behind an eight some happens a lot at this course. Didn't see a marshal all day. Thankfully I played the course before bringing my Monday group here to play.

Hello, Bob. Thank you for reviewing the course. Let us first start by apologizing for the delay of play during your round. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. During your round, there were two groups of 4 playing in front of you so this could certainly slow down a single. We also see you rated the value, off-course amenities, and staff to be poor during your visit. We appreciate all feedback but these items do not match the game you played with us.We will continue to work towards an excellent experience by using your comment for guidance but encourage you to reevaluate your review of the course to accurately reflect the experience you had and the current course conditions.

In the last few weeks, the bare spots on the greens have been patched with sod harvested from putting green. Two weeks ago, the greens were punched, seeded, and top dressed. Greens are looking good. They also punched and seeded the fairways and tee boxes. Many of the fairways are as nice as you'll find. The range is groomed and looking nice, where they even have club cleaners now. If you have not seen this course in a few months, you may not recognize it.

I enjoyed my round at Patriots Glen - the course is in decent shape, based on other reviews I've read it sounds like things are moving in the right direction. The layout was great, you can tell that things will be great if the improvements keep coming. Both interactions with clubhouse staff at start/end of round were great, very friendly. Didn't take advantage of the food/drink at the course, but it looks like a nice set up. No problem recommending this course.

I’ve read all the reviews prior to playing about the course conditions; and yes the course isn’t in great shape. I’m not sure what it looked like before because it’s the first time I played here. The course looks like it’s trying to make improvements; There are some holes that’s are down right awful and others that look acceptable. I’m not golf snob; so I took the good with the bad. You can’t beat the price and the friendly staff. It’s has a nice layout to make you think about your club selection. I shot my best round of the year here today; my only true complaint is no ranger. I was playing solo and had a 2 some in front of me on the front 9 that just wouldn’t let me play through. I even hit into them twice and they didn’t get the hint. The 2 some behind me were nipping on my tail that’s how slow they were.

I play this course regularly because I live in the neighborhood, and I am utterly amazed by the turnaround in the last 4/6 weeks. I have seen many improvements being made around the facility, including extensive work to the course itself, and the results are there to see. I know it's a long and hard process, but the effort is clearly showing. I've been playing other courses in the area as well, and honestly, PGN is not far behind, and for me, has a great (challenging) layout. The transformation in the greens in the last month is spectacular. I commend the revival efforts and hope they continue. Even simple things like tidying up the range (organized grass sections, trimming the edges, club cleaning devices) go a long way to improving the overall experience. I gave an overall rating of 4, because it still isn't perfect and there's work to do (which hopefully continues), but for their efforts, imrpovements, value, and course layout I would give 5 stars! Keep it up.

Things didn't start well; I had made a Sat afternoon tee time directly w/ the course. When I arrived, guy said, oops, on the phone we must've told you the Fri rate. Given I drove 50 min to play there & since it was THEIR mistake, I thought they might honor the lower (quoted) rate. They didn't. Had I not had a %-off coupon (I joined their mailing list) I would have gone home right there. Bad start.

The course was closed for 2 years & is just starting to come around. Tee boxes were mediocre. Fairways were 75% good, 25% bad (I had to move my ball off those bare spots, but that wasn't too big a deal). Greens looked recently aerated & were fairly slow. And most of the greens had 'bad' spots (esp around the edges) that you really couldn't putt thru (again, had to move the ball). Course layout is generally good. Pace of play was fine till we ran into a group of a**holes (driving & parking your cart on the green?). Took us 1.75 hours to play the last 5 holes.

Bottom line, it's nice to see the course "coming back". But I was annoyed about the pricing thing & since I live fairly far away, the jury's out on whether I'd come back here.

After reading some of the negative reviews on this forum I was pleasantly surprised at how nice, just how playable this course actually was. There were some really bad spots but I'd say the majority of the course was in good to great shape. Again, there is some really bad turf, but it was more in areas that I wasn't affected by. Pretty challenging from the back tees, it's more of a placement tee shot over powering the ball down the fairways. The pace of play was pretty bad as I, being a single, was stuck behind 3 twosomes who obviously didn't care about me behind them as they hacked their way around the course. No help from a ranger could be found. Other than that i was very impressed with Patriots Glen and will definitely be back to play. If they keep on track with their plans, come spring this will be a hard tee time to get. The new GM and head pro were extremely friendly and helpful. Living at Bulle Rock makes comparisons hard to come by, but this will be a great course in a very short time. The unfortunate part is that I doubt it will be showing up in the future with Hot Deals, which is how I found this gem.

I really enjoyed playing Patriots Glenn. The layout is fantastic, much different than the courses I play in Delaware. Lots of hills, some blind fairways. We played a scramble from the blue tees and I think it was more challenging than I anticipated. Probably should have stuck to the whites. Some spots on the course are under repair, but nothing out of the ordinary. For the price I will certainly be back.
