Good Value

Glen Abbey is a very nice course that is a great value for the money. The course is not as plush as some courses, but it has plenty of grass and you can find decent lies anywhere. The greens are fast and put true. I would recommend this course to anyone and especially for those who are looking for more for their buck.

Fair to Bad

Played here a month ago and decided to give it another chance. There was improvement around the greens with grass filling in the bare spots. The greens were brown and some sort of weeds popping all over. If you hit one on your putt you didn't know where the ball would be going. The t boxes were ok. A course for beginners and families. For the $29 i payed it wasn't worth it. They spent more money doubling the size of the bar than taking care of the course. I feel bad for all of the staff because they are extremely nice. I would have rather paid an extra $10 and played another course. You can get a golf now deal and play it for $16 which is what it's worth. Alot of potential out there.

Fair condition

Greens are brown with small growths. Fairways are ok, some ruts due to cart tracks in soft ground. Some challenging holes. Pace of play average. Friendly staff.

Needs improvement

Have played this course numerous times. The greens are usually in good shape and can play fast. There are a number of interesting holes on each nine so the layout is good. The t boxes are generally in decent shape. The only draw back is the fairways on many of the holes is not good. Very little grass if any which makes for difficult shots. The grass around the greens is mainly non existent. I watched the players in the league pull their carts up right next to the green. This kills all the grass and leaves nothing but sand. I told the club house that putting stakes and ropes up would help. They said they tried that but players either pull up the stakes or drive right through them. The cart paths are bad which makes for a very bumpy ride out there. For the price, you get what you pay for (And here that is a little high). If they improve the course they could get more play and increase the fees. Until its improved, I won't be going back. On the upside, the staff out here is great.

Need a rain check policy for golf now customers. Will not make a tee time if rain in the forecast. If to wet to play I would like the option to get a rain check on a prepaid tee time

Once upon a time

At one time I am sure this was a well conditioned course as the "root"s are there. Today however the lack of maintenance was obvious as the fairways, were sandy and the drainage for water was very poor resulting in what fairways that were present were wet. Some Tee boxes were hard to determine if not for the box markers.

Bruce's review.

I have played here a lot.

Course is good condition and plays a little

challenging. The folks at the course are like

family. Always nice to me. Maybe that's

because I am always nice to them.

Mixed feelings about this course

I have played this course about 6 times in the last 3 months and I kept hoping it would get better but the conditions are just awful. The staff however is wonderful and I feel bad writing a negative review which is entirely about course conditions and not the staff. I have played there frequently lately as my wife is a beginner just learning the game and the course was not crowded so she didn't feel rushed or intimidated. The greens fees are very cheap but this is a case of you get what you pay for, There very few holes where the grass in the fairway is abundant and in good shape. Most fairways are mostly weeds and sand. What is not sand or weeds is bare dirt hard as concrete. It can make for a very frustrating golf experience to hit a ball well and where you want it only to find that your lie is horrible. The greens are actually not bad but weeds are beginning to take over. If price is your biggest criteria then I highly recommend but I just got too frustrated with the conditions to come back again.

Update- Played the course again on June 30 and things have improved. There is still a ways to go but the grass in the fairways was better although still a bit sparse in some areas. The greens were in good shape and the weed encroachment I mentioned earlier has been addressed. Very happy to see that an effort is being made to improve the conditions as I really like this course layout. Kudos....I will be back.
