Fall from grace

This course has a great layout. It's fun, challenging, but not too hard. I've been playing here since last winter and it was great. Since then the course conditions have sharply declined. The rough looks like a goat field, and the fairways are full of sand patches. The place needs some serious TLC. I only golf here now when it's really cheap. Many nearby courses have recovered from our rain, draught, rain phases. But Glen Abbey is in need of better maintenance. I would love to see this course come back to its former glory.

Should sell to owner who cares

Fairways are just weeds. Second hole green is mostly pieces of sod layed down not even rolled. Worse condition course that I have been in the area. At lot of rust, no maintenance being done. Going out of business is not to far away..

Needs some TLC

Course is really burned up as you might expect for this time of year. If you could keep the golf carts from riding all over the place and leaving ruts in wet spots,
That would help !! Nice layout but needs some work. It was worth the fee
And I played in just over three hours.

Great place to play

The staff was as good as it gets. The course is self was in very good condition. And the layout was somewhat tricky. We live 85 miles away I might go again someday. Mostly because the staff were so nice.

Glen Abbey, aka "The Swallows"

I played this course a long time ago before the houses were built alongside it. With the exception of a couple holes (#15 comes to mind), the greens were in excellent shape. The fairway grass was thin, as is to be expected at winter's end, so the lies were pretty tight.
I had to skip a hole to get around a very slow foursome, so I only got in 17 holes before darkness. Other than that one encounter, the pace of play was very good.

Nice course

Recent rain has 'greened' up the course. Fairways and greens in good shape. A couple challenging holes. Played at 4pm and got in 17 holes with a partner by 6:15. Very reasonable rates. Enjoy golfing here.

Only allowed 11 holes as shotgun league took over course

Was told to play front nine by 9am to avoid league. Ran around in under 1 hour to ensure back nine play.

However, league started on back and inserted themselves ahead of 18 hole players.

What a joke!

Nice AM @ Glen Abbey

Had a 7:28 tee time @ Glen Abbey ....
We arrived right on the dot as GPS from GolfNow misguided us. Pro shop personnel was understanding and pleasant. Brand new carts-nice!... We thouroghly enjoyed our time. Glen Abbey has a lot of doglegs and we had some trouble with lines off the tee etc. Af few greens were struggling but overall decent shape considering it’s off season. Bunkers were nice and we sped around in under 4hrs as a threesome . We will be back next time we vacation here . Thanks for a great day !

Great easy

This place is a great place and easy to get to by far the best bang for the buck ! Greens and fairways are coming back from being dormant another couple weeks back to normal . Bunkers are soft which is what they are suppose to be . The amenities are priced perfect .Go back here quite often after playing other more overpriced local courses .guess our group isn't upity enough. Lol

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.
