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.

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.

Old course

Played for the first time. Staff was very friendly and kind. Played as a single and very fast play. Conditions were rough, but paid $10 for 18 with a cart , so I won’t complain ..just state truth, and layout had it challenges to any skill level. Had a fun day with wife , even played two rounds of pool in bar at turn then completed round. Been in Florida a month and would play again. Not so much for course conditions as for the friendly staff and very quick and not busy course.
