Okay

The course was okay. You did not return to the clubhouse after 9 holes - they didn't tell us. They have a halfway house, which was closed. Tried getting drinks out of a soda machine - was not working. Tried a water cooler - water tasted like sulfer. Awfully hot for not having any water or refreshments on the course. Very long and frustrating day! Will not return.

Great shape for fall

Traditions have done a great job keeping the course in good condition this fall. The course was clear of most leaves and did not hide the balls. Staff was very nice.

Not a walking course

Traditions is an older golf course where riding is a must. The layout is decent but with today's golf technology even the mid- high handicap can score here. Most of the holes are short by today's standards, but it's worth a round.
The conditions were fair, it could use some TLC , otherwise look for special deals to play usually on golf now has some pretty good rates.

Course needs some tlc

I've played this course many times, dating back to its heyday as IBM CC. I only play it once or twice a year now as It's really not worth more than $35 these days. On this particular day the greens were decent but tees and fairway grass was unacceptably high. I rated conditions as "average" but they don't measure up to other courses such as enjoie or links at Hiawatha.

Out of the blue

This was a last minute change for us as we did not see this in the list at the star. Arrived at the course and loads of parking for a Large Car Truck.
The staff was awesome, Naomi was a pleasure to all with, She is he Head Pro and is very pleasant, Rick was also a nice person with great info on the course. Thanks to the both of them. The course was tuff from the blue tees as it rained in the AM and you got no roll at all and on some drives it plugged but the rain was massive in the AM.
Great test for good golfers on their target playing, Undulating Fairways and uphill shots and down hill fairways. This is a must if in the area.

Frustrating!

I played this course early in the year and it was a disaster. The course was terrible and the carts were shot. They charged me $44. I played again recently. I believe they now have some newer carts. I think the price has been lowered and the course is now in better condition, although there are some greens that could use work.

With a $34 weekeday price, I'd recomment it (if the snack shack was open alllllll day). If it goes back to $44, no thanks. Too many better courses around here. Conklin is $44. Traditions doesn't compare.

Very annoying that the snack shack doesn't open till later in the day (they said 3:30, but at 3:40 no one was there). Nowhere to get a drink or snack since the crazy course layout never takes you by the clubhouse. An open snack shack is a must if the course is open.

Additionally, we played a day or two after a lot of rain. The bunkers were filled with water. They were like ponds. No one had touched them... whereas when we drove by The Links, they were out working their bunkers that morning. Hmmm, maybe $34 is still too much if you're not going to maintain your bunkers after a rain.

Frustrating... it used to be so nice there.

Great deal on golf now

Course is always one of my favorites when I come back to the area. Deal was amazing on golf now. They look to be struggling just a bit with a couple of the greens but the deal was too good to complain about a green or two. My biggest issue for the day was it was pretty hot for the triple cities(90°)+ and there was not a single water jug to get a drink and since it was a weekday the concession stand at the turn waa closed. Needless to say it was a tough day. A fun layout that holds many good memories from my childhood.

Really Gone Down Hill

Been two years since golfing here and it seems to have really gone down hill. The greens were in poor shape, shaggy and bumpy. The tee boxes needed work, and the rough looked like it hadn't been cut in weeks. Fairways were OK. There are better courses to play in the area for the price.

Shaggy Greens

For the price that they regularly charge there are many other courses for less that are better maintained. The greens were shaggy, some had ant spots and patches. Fairways were good and staff is friendly. Price does not reflect quality this year!

Shaggy Greens

I have played Traditions many times before but this year they are off to a rough start. The greens are extremely shaggy and not kept up to what you would expect for over $40 a round. No water on the course or beverage cart on an 80+ degree day. Otherwise the rest of the course was in pretty good shape.

Quirky, but nice.

Traditions at the Glen (formerly Heritage CC) was designed as a country club for IBM employees back in the heyday of the triple cities. IBM is long gone and the course has changed hands a couple times. The original 9 hole executive course is also gone and has been replaced by "foot golf" (dumb). The course's fountainhead was originally the old country club building, which you'll now pass on holes #11, 16 and 17. As a result of the re-route, the course doesn't seem to flow quite right, and you don't come back to the new clubhouse on the turn. There's a small snack shack near the #8 and #15 tee that's sporadically staffed, depending on the season. The course is quirky in spots, but the conditioning is generally good. My most recent round had us raving over the perfect green conditions, though the rough could have used a trim. Carts are gas powered and in decent shape. The traps are generally decent and playable. There's alot of elevation change here and some blind shots to go along with it. All in all a good play if you can get a discounted rate. I never pay full price to play here.

Good old course.

Typical old private course layout. Good use of terrain with elevation changes. Has seen better days but is still worth a try.
