My friend and I were 10 minutes late because we were new and not familiar with that area of town, South of Sodo, White Center, and off 509. We called ahead to the clubhouse to inform them. After we played first hole, unbeknowst to us, a golf member drove the cart to our green at the 2nd hole and yielded "If you don't know how to play, then play somewhere else." We were shocked. Later a course marshall came on the 3 rd hole and said "we should be kicked out of the course because of jean and warm up pant. " NO ONE had warned us either online or when we checked in. We thought this is an entirely public course and country club was a thing of past, since which golf country club would let public make reservation. We felt so unwelcome and intimidated. Our play experience was affected. The course is fine. We would like to play again under the right condition.

I love this course, but it was not kept up due to the early part of the season. I lost 9 balls that were struck in the fairways and or on approach due to be being plugged!!! So, not a fault of the course, just really frustrating to have to search a lot...then have to drop another ball.

I really appreciate that this 9 hole course has two different sets of tees so you can play the holes differently!

Very well maintained and fun. I wish there was some more variation (each hole is just straight) but the elevation changes added some excitement.

I played nine holes starting about 8:00 AM during the week. I think I was the only golfer on the course for about 45 minutes. The fairways and greens were in excellent condition. The course is hilly and a little challenging for a senior golfer that is walking. I enjoyed It and may play it again. Thanks

I usually love this course! I understand that it is private and know members and have known members in the past that I was able to play with! This course gets completely ruined by rain! For as long as they have been there..you would think that they would have slowly fixed drainage one hole at a time! Waste of money right now..steer clear! And. The only time golf now is involved now days is when nobody will play it so..they have to get extra money somehow! Thought about a membership before but..not I only have to pay for months when you can actually play!

Made a Tee time For 12:27 and showed up 10mins before my Tee time (12:17) only to find out they were having a shotgun tournament that day at 12:30. I was told " sorry for this but that Tee time was removed a week ago, there is nothing I can do other than give you a tee time for a different day" when that was a total lie because I reserved my tee time the same day at 9:30 as the tee time.

I was really excited to play this course being that I grew up playing on Glen Acres and spent everyday of my summer break as a junior/teen playing on the course and have not played it in over 15 years. But I will not go back now because I do not want to show up for a scheduled tee time only to find out I cant play and have my whole day ruined.

The Course is very challenging due to the narrowness of the fairways, the trees as obstacles, the houses lining the edges with blocked off fences, and the greens that are like mogles.

If you don't hit the fairways on your drive, you're going to be punished greatly. 1st hole I had a 'slight draw', but it was enough to lose not one of my 4$ balls, but two. I repeated this loss several holes later where a fence lined the left side and I hit another slight draw and poof... balls gone... twice again. Only this time I could see the balls, but they were behind a fence that I could not get around to retrieve them.

Not the course's fault that I hooked or sliced my drives, but it would have been nice to be able to retrieve the balls gone wrong.

The greens were in good condition but so 'sloped' on some that missing the cup on the softest of putts sent the ball traveling far past the cup.

The cart I used had bad brakes... locked down, the cart still rolled down hill which caused me to be less focused on my game. Hopefully they'll fix that issue as I alerted them to it when I finished my round.

I was paired up with a guy who RUSHED through like nobody I've ever seen. That part made the round less than favorable for me personally. I felt like I was under-the-gun the entire time.

The next time I am paired with someone like that I'll send them on their way so that I can play 'my game, my pace' not theirs.

Great course for Seniors.

As for my game-score:

I shot over par, and then some. Definitely not one of 'my' better games. :--))

Next round at the Auburn Course Thursday (Tomorrow).

Good Golfing!!! and remember to:

*Fix your ball marks and divots please!

Once you're comfortable that you've learned how to play golf the next step is to be challenged by other players and by tough courses . When you find that special course it's like finding a diamond in the rough. Well Glenn acres is a nine-hole track that I'm sure most golfers in the northwest have no idea exists or how awesome it is . It's beautiful, it will challenge you, and I has the country club feel just like it was designed to be .
