Par 72
Length 7016 yards
Slope 134
Rating 74.4

Golf Digest's Top 75 Public Courses included Glenview Golf Course once upon a time, and the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship was played there once, too. Even if the golf course's prestige has faded a bit - or simply been surpassed by golf courses that were designed more recently - the golf course still offers a test and still draws golfers.

If golfers choose to golf the South and West golf courses in tandem at the Glenview golf club, they'd be looking at a route that would take them 6,843 yards from the Black tees. Teeing off on the South Course, golfers would have to travel 401 yards from the Black tees and do it with a par of 4. Things get long on the South Course's third hole, a par 5 that measures 547 yards from the Black tees and is one of four holes that play to over 500 yards on this route.

The West Course's ninth hole is one of these, requiring golfers who go South Course to West Course at the Glenview Golf Course to close out on a par 5 that measures 541 yards from the Black tees.

Oldie but goodie, Glenview always a treat

Lack of Starter on #1 would be the only complaint, course had too many singles and 2somes that should be paired up. Also encountered 6some on par 3. Otherwise, the course is in fantastic shape tee to greens especially now towards end of season. Tee boxes, fairways and greens in much better shape than many courses around Cincy. A forgotten gem, Glenview delivers the goods and the fun layout does not disappoint. Very challenging from the Tips.

Cincinnati golf

Very nice public course that was well maintained and managed. Got rained out on 18th but was an enjoyable day of golf and a good value for the money.

Nice course for anyone

This course can be a bit underwhelming when compared with others, but it makes for a fun round no matter your skill level.

Best of the collection of Cincy Public courses. Recent rains have prevented cutting so she was bit shaggy.
Normally it is a great track with moderate level of difficulty

Below average

Not even worth a hot deal for $23 on golf now. I would’ve rather spent $10-20 anywhere else. Staff was rude course has seen better days.

Good value

Greens were great, but slow. Bunkers perfectly kept. Fairways above average. Collars a bit rough.

Boring blah course

Course was definitely not worth $37 (with $3 charge). Course was in decent shape (some dead spots in fairways and bunkers were sub par) but man this course is a snooze to play. Boring holes, no variety, no major hazards...this is a $25 course at best.

Staff was very friendly.

Will not be coming back.

Classic Glenview

The course is in really great shape, probably the best I’ve seen it in years. But with the whole pandemic the course was absolutely packed and it was obvious nobody was on pace of play control throughout the course. That doesn’t take that much away from the experience but it is something to note if you are in a bind for time. Luckily my whole day was free and it didn’t hinder my round.

Feel like the course loves me!

I have been playing this course for several years. A few tough and blind holes but very fair for an old timer like me. Bring your 3-wood as you'll probably need it. Greens are always in great shape. Lots of hawks, deer and wild turkeys make Glenview even more fun!
