50,000 would go a long way

This is a course that is simply ruined by its horrendous location. It's located in a poor part of town and it does not attract a lot of business. There is no driving range or chipping green. The fairways aren't cut and play more like rough than more fairway. Believe it or not, though, the greens aren't in awful shape and run at reasonable speeds. It is an extremely interesting design. Tight tee shots, drivable par 4s, and narrow par 3s set you up for an enjoyable day. It is a very easy course to walk as well. It is an extremely inexpensive course so if you do not mind the subpar condition, for its price it isn't bad. I think if they put money into the course and could maintain shape all year round it would attract more customers.

Old, but best value in town

I personally love Glenwood. Basically my first course, my only hole in one and for the value, it is one of the best courses around.

forgiving fairways, but small greens. Makes for a challenging, but rewarding day sometimes.

Staff is great! And its only $26.00 after 4pm to play as much as you want. You cant beat it! Only $40 something in primetime weekend times.

Only knocks are no driving range and sometimes the fairways could be better kept, but other than that, it is a hidden treasure in Richmond's East End.

I would definitely recommend this course to friends.

Cash needed?!?

Greens are in terrific shape. No signage on course so confusing to find next hole. Fairway vs rough= no difference. Lack of credit options at bar prevented us from eating and buying beer.

Never play at Glenwood!!!! Rude staff

This course has the rudest staff I've ever encountered in my 10 years of playing golf. They do not treat Golf Now customers well at all I would never recommend anyone to go there.

Just enough water hazards

This course had wide fairways. Some holes were quite challenging due to water hazard just rightly placed in front of greens. Would happily play this course again.

Old style fun

Glenwood is well worth playing just for the sake of experiencing an old course that hasn't been modified over the years. The conditions were decent for this time of year (late winter), the staff were friendly and we played 18 in 3 hours. What's not too love?

Great Value!

This course is located close to the city and is a great value! It is certainly not one of the best in the region but it is great to get some golf in on the cheap! It is an old course (designed for wood shafts) that is somewhat short but its normally in decent shape and plays well. Cart rules are normally non-existent and everyone there is friendly and courteous.

Great round for the value

My family and I enjoyed some cold weather golf after the Thankgiving holiday. The first three fairways were holding more water than usual but greens are some of the best in the area in my opinion. Also couldn't beat the $18 round.

Great greens

This course had nice greens. The fairways were a little rough but it is late November 2013. The carts a rough. Ours had a broken windscreen and the seats were torn up. The staff was nice, to the point. All and all, good course for the money.

Great 9-hole course for the money

This is a nice 9 hole course. More than drive and pitch for average golfers off tee. Also has par 3 course for short game. Staff always friendly

Umm…. I believe your review is in reference to the Lakes Course at Windy Hill Sports Complex, not Glenwood Golf Club.

Rude Management

Course in fair shape for a public course. Management explained that GolfNow patrons have a 20 minute T-Time window and we would just have to wait. My T-Time was 12:00, we got there at 11:30 and Teed off at 12:45. This is unacceptable. We did not get to finish due to darkness. I've played this course before and it's a good place to kill time but I've never been treated like that before. VERY DISAPPOINTED

Nice layout for a public course

Pace of play was much better this time, played here before with some problems. Like the layout, some short but deceptive holes, pretty rolling hills in places.

This is a very good course.

This course is a challenge for older people. The greens and the fairways are in good shape, the bunkers are excellent. The tee boxes are very good.

Home Course

This is a great course for all levels. The 13th hole is the most difficult hole but birdies loom for the player that can get from tee to green in 2. Because course is always maintained with good greens, your short stick must be accurate. Have Fun-Go Play!!!

This is a nice course to play.

This course is especially enjoyable when played from the back tees(Gold on this course). The Greens were in great shape considering the amount of play this course gets daily.

With the exception of the 13th hole the course is all out in front of you. Like many other public courses in Virginia this course needs sand in the bu

This is a very playable municipal course. No frills though.

Improved conditions

Had read earlier reviews and expected high rough and poor conditions. Found the course in fairly good shape although a few greens need some attention and #2 is a temp green and real green looks terrible. Most of the other greens putted okay. Rough was not too high and fairways were generally very good.

This course needs serious up keep

The 2nd hole was located in the fairway, a lot of the fairways were in need of trimming, drainage was horrible when we played it hadnt rained in a week and was like there was a hurricane the night before

Great price, not very good condition.

Outstanding golf course for beginners, wide open fairways and only one or two tough holes. Greens were in pretty bad shape on some holes, great on others. One was completely under repair, so the hole was cut from fairway lying before it. Pretty terrible to putt on but my goal for playing was to get better and it's a good course for that.
