This was the first time I have played this course. I was very disappointed. The course condition was not good. Too many weeds and not enough grass in the fairways. The course could have used some water on most holes. The back side was very wet on some holes. Overall this might be a course for people learning or starting to play only. Was very disappointed to say the least and will never play again. Other courses in area that are in better shape.

Very good layout and the greens are in very good condition, but tee boxes are in rough shape and fairways need some TLC...lotsa weeds and bare areas. I played this course years ago when it was in much better shape. But for the price it's not bad. And the folks there were extremely pleasant, friendly and seemed genuinely glad we were there...no qualms recommending this course.,

Greens can be quite fast and challenging, and fairways are also generally in good shape.

The layout is quite varied and fun, good combination of some long holes and short.

We enjoyed our round.

This course has a variety of features. Some very wide fareways some narrow. Some water, some elevation changes, some easy holes and some very challenging holes. Greens are fast and are generally in good shape. Very friendly club house staff.

Have been playing this course for years! It has been up and down for quite some time but overall it looks pretty good! Fairways are playable, greens roll true with a some fairway spots being a bit wet, but you learn to play around them. Course plays short so there are lots of chances for low scores! A good practice course with plenty of fun and trouble to be had, best to leave the driver in the bag on some holes. Its not TPC but it is a fun track with good staff and pace of play! If you have some time to kill, this isn't a bad way to do it!

First time playing this course. It has had some damage from the hurricane which has been pretty well cleaned up, but lots of rain in the weeks following the hurricane have made this course very soft and muddy in a lot of areas. If you can avoid the soft wet spots, it's a decent challenge for the money. Greens are a little patchy in places but certainly useable. If the weather clears up it should be in good shape in a couple weeks.

This is the course we use to practice cause its cheap. Fairways are really bumpy, hold on to your hat. Greens are pretty good considering. We nicknamed 10,11, and 12-"the snake pit"...getting through here without getting bit- only 3 over, is pretty good.

Glen Abbey is just a great value golf course and has a very nice variety of golf holes.

Holes 10-12 will test your mettle and can definitely put a dent into a good round, but that makes it fun.

The staff are extremely friendly and welcoming.

I was trying out a new driver (10.5- usually 9.5) thinking I would get extra distance, which I did, but I ended up hitting approach shots from places I've never been before-- I'm thinking with some more adjustments, there will be overall improvement over time . . . oh, wait . . . you meant the golf course, right?
