Nice Course

This is a nice neighborhood course winding through a residential area. There are 3 nine hole courses. We played the Dunes and Vista, finding the Vista a bit easier than the Dunes. I would play it again when I’m in the Foley area.

The Dunes nine - difficult to enjoy

Excepting the Dunes nine, a good experience. We were well taken care of, course in good shape, friendly staff, good pace of play. Excepting Dunes 1 and the par threes no level lies, several blind tee shots, severe dog legs - simply: not much fun. Overall, the Dunes nine felt like the reality version of a video game.

Beautiful golf course.

27 holes of great golf. Well laid out with spacious fairways. Only downfall was no beverage cart on a warm Saturday afternoon. Staff very helpful for first time at course offering yardage book and local rules. Recommend to everyone.

The best staff

You can't beat the Southern Hospitality when playing golf the staff are always accommodating to golfers needs when you play here. It is now the end of October, so the greens are going into a dormant stage, so don't expect a perfect greens. Best of all the golf course itself has always been enjoyable to play.

Soggy, cut grass everywhere

I play here all the time we are staying at our property in Baldwin CTY.

Course was wet, cut grass was everywhere. Greens were uneven.

Slow play

Had a 1:37 tee time. Stopped after 16 because of darkness due to slow play. Only course Marshall I saw was hunting for golf balls for himself. Played this course many times and not had a bad experience.

It’s just ok

The course was super wet and about half the holes were cart path only, so it was pretty slow. If you miss the fairway, good luck getting the ball out of the rough. It’s thick and nearly impossible to hit from. Paid $30 for 18, which it the right price. Wouldn’t pay more than that.

Review of Glen Lakes G C

We had a very good day playing golf at Glen Lakes G. C. The fairways appeared to be dry in many places. Overall we had a nice day.

Course was fine but we had a couple of issues.

The sand in the bunkers was soggy even though we teed off at 10:00 on a hot and dry morning. We saw the cart girl on the second tee and never saw her again. Thankfully there were several water coolers on the course but we would have stopped at the turn for lunch if we had known there wouldn’t be any snacks available on course. Lastly, the course wasn’t busy so the pace of play was great but I noticed the tee times are set at seven minutes apart. On a busy day that would create some traffic jams.
Other than the traps the course was in very good condition. This is a fun and challenging course with a lot of variation.
