Greens set to ludicrous speed

This could’ve been one of the best courses I played this season... except the superintendent inexplicably thought it’d be a good idea to make resort guests putt on slick concrete. I’m guessing they were rolling at 13 or 14 on the stimp meter. In either case, I’ve never putted on any surface so fast in my life! Factor in the 15 mph wind gusts, and it’s no wonder I needed 45 putts to get through the round (30-34 is normal for me). The fairways, tee boxes and landscaping were otherwise stellar so I’m giving the course conditions 3 stars. And I’m only recommending Glaze Meadow under the assumption that the greens aren’t usually like this.

Fun Track

First off, found it hard to get to this course. In a gated community with many narrow streets and GPS had a hard time getting us to the club house. But is well worth the struggle to get there. Well maintained and manicured from tee to green and putting surfaces rolled true. Many trees line fairways as well as houses and water comes into play on a few holes. Course is fairly flat with few forced carries. All in all, liked the course and would play again.

Slow Greens!!!!

We all know this is a great lay out, but don't waste your time or money here this early into the season. The greens look great, but are slower then anywhere you can play. If you look to play and pay for courses with nice and quick greens, don't play here.

As Good as this course has been.....Ever!

Since the upgrade of Glaze Meadows a couple of years ago this course continues to just get better. Once you get over the beauty of Black Butte you will find that both resort courses offer challenges and enjoyment for all. I have played these courses since 1990 and can honestly say that even with the warm weather this year the course(s) are as good as ever. The greens are absolutely running perfect (11-12) and the fairways are in great shape. Pace of play was somewhat of a disappointment the day we played but is not the norm. It was a little windy and may have been the reason for the slow play (though a little prodding by the Marshall would have helped!). You can easily walk the Big Meadows course but would recommend a cart for Glaze Meadows due to the elevation changes. Bar & scenery for your 19th hole is better spent @ Big Meadows. With that said, my hat's off the staff at Black Butte for keeping the courses in great condition!

Glaze at It's Best

Usually play the 2 Bl. Btte courses 2x/yr on visits. Glaze is favored post extensive remodel. I am 77. HCP 28 (well deserved). Play Whites-5,931-- Blu-6,506, Rd5,367. Weather amazing-65-80 during round. Course in great shape, greens superb. Moderately trapped, good sand. Water minimal. Rolling topography with postcard views. Prior knowledge helps on a few holes, but course plainly in view 95%. I can score on this course if I am "on" and I always enjoy the round . Foursome slow play due to our own casual play, with few others on course.

Beautiful course in all golfing respects

Course is in excellent condition but is the usual mountain timber lined fairways. Must keep the ball in the fairways to have a chance to score then once on the green the bent grass will force most golfers to shake their head. Not many courses in the West have these bent grass greens so we have to relearn how to play them but the greens are big and inviting. Had a great day and enjoyed it a lot. Looking forward to playing it again.

Hidden gem

Rare opportunity to play a course generally not open to public play at such a great price. Greens are still hard but will be more receptive as they mature. Friendly layout to all handicaps.

Nice layout, poor green conditions.

Greens had been fertilized and die applied that morning according to staff when asked after our round. Putts did not roll true and the speed was very slow. I expected better.

Excellent

A well done redo of this course. I've played it many, many times before it was overhauled. It was getting old and outdated. The new course is more open with better views and is much more user friendly. The bunkers have been redone and some placed in new locations. Makes you aim and gives you good sight lines. Can be walked with a little more effort than a totally flat course. We got in at the $39/person rate and had lunch at Robert's Pub for $65/person total W/GOLF & DRINKS! We will be playing it again! A great upgrade. PS: Shot 75, lady friend had 88 and we're senior golfers

A fine walk!

Early season conditions…fairly large greens were slow and bumpy, but ok. Course is very fair, and very well suited to walking. Water in play on a few holes on front nine. Nice views of the mountains on several holes. We played at our own relaxed pace, with no one in front or behind, in about 3.5 hours. Facility is modest, but nice. Staff was very friendly. I look forward to playing here again.

Early season near alpine golf at it's finest.

I had a great time playing this course. It was early season for them so it was not 100% green yet, but it seemed very well manicured. I can't wait to come back later this summer and play again when it is all greened up. There is nothing like playing in the shadows of mountains, and this truly is a real golf gem for the entire state and maybe west coast. Heck, I might even retire here!

one of the best in Central Oregon.T

Black Butte Glaze Meadows is one of 2 very nice courses at destination resort Black Butte Ranch. The course has recently gone through a 2-3 million dollar renovation. Fairways and greens are in great condition. Plenty of sand traps. Views from several holes include Black Butte, Mt. Washington, and 3 Sisters Mtns.

Great course.

Good course, well maintained. Nicely secluded. Would certanly play again. Challenging for all levels but even the novice can find some successs. Nestled into the pines and aspens. Your time on the course feels private, not some wide open venue. The weather wasn't great but loved it nonetheless. The deal withGolfNow was wonderful. The pro shop managed it perfectly.
