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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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

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!!!

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.

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.
