Always a treat.

They have great deals going on right now. With Covid-19 it isnt as lavish as it has been in the past.

Check it out if you havent before. One of the best courses in the country.

Great experience

Kudos to Glen Abbey for making all the necessary changes required to open given the new “Covid” guidelines. The course is in beautiful condition and the entire experience was great! Thank-you. Your efforts were evident.

History

I picked to play here because of the history. It's cool to walk and play the same course as the pros have in the past. The pro shop has no almost no golf amenities to purchase which is unfortunate especially for first time players. The course is in decent condition except for a few spots on a couple greens which are a bit bumpier then others. Not worth being over priced. $150 gives you better options.

For Nostalgia Only

The course is worth it just to say you have played it. Aside from a 4-5 hole stretch on the back 9 it is a very boring back and forth course. It is in good shape however for the price i'`d rather play a different course. Worth 50-60 mayb but definitely not the almost $100 its usually at.

Covid golf

Course was well orgainsed for the new norm. Good communication. Course was in nice condition, other than some bunkers had not been maintained. Group ahead was slow, no marshalls but overall a good experience for the first time out this year. Bring patience to the courses this year. If youre in a rush stay home.

Always a fun round

Great course. Felt like nobody was around with the way everything was set up with social distancing. The cups need some improvements. A lot of times your ball should’ve been in the hole but you can’t take the pin out and the pin is raised too much so the balls rolls out of the cup.

Glen Abbey Rocks

I couldn't have been more thrilled to spend my first day outside, after the Covid shut-in, surrounded by the outstanding team at Glen Abbey, even with a short-handed staff, they were determined to carve out time to connect and ask how my winter had been, they greeted me by name and ensured I felt welcome, while still following stringent directives regarding the new life "SOP's". As always, the course has a beautiful layout, the early season greens will be back in action soon, and overall, the course was in moderate to good early spring shape. As expected the round was a little slower than normal at 4:34 min. but WHO CARES!!!! I was outside in the SUN!!! It was amazing. Brian, Amy, Drew - I am sooo sorry i don't know more names.....but all of them, every one of them was amazing and kind and welcoming.

Thank you Glen Abbey - with so much sincerity.

Abby, Revenue Stream

It's a very lovely place and the staff are good. The Club Link model is about revenue so you have to understand they will take anyones money as long as you show up and pay.

I played yesterday with a good friend from Scotland. He gets so frustrated with the pace of play on public courses, in Canada. I agree, the Abby pace is sooo slow evertime I play it. As the home of Candian Golf, it needs to step it up and get people moving.

Get golfers to the correct tee boxes, this needs to be detemined at check in. 95 percent of the golfers I saw yesterday could handle the gold tees. Too far and punishing for their skill level. Next state the time you want people to people to play get a round.in. Finally get a real marshal out on the course who uderstands speed of play. Players need to play the entire course a lateral hazards,

We waited on the tenth hole for over 25 minutes. I was waiting on every shot, either on the tee or from the fairway.

They let out three twosomes in front of us, we asked the twosomes to join each other and speed it up. They looked at us with blank empty looks.

We played in 4.45, which they feel is exceptable. The game can and should be played in 3.30 in my opinion.

In closing the Abby needs to take some pride in the game and the speed of play,

Lovely place to visit, Clublink in my opinion cares about revenue first and player experience is way down the list. Having said all of this we paid $59.00 for a course that charges $225.00 during the summer.

Maybe I am asking too much considering the price?

Hi Bikerboi6969. Thanks for taking the time to review your recent round.

Unfortunately at this time of the year it is frequent to see a frost delay pushing you beyond the time par from your original time - we do apologize for that. We will pass along your comment to our Marshalling team to determine how to continue in enhancing our time par for the best customer experience.

We hope to see you back again for a round in 2020!

Bucket LIst Course

Had the opportunity to play this course at a reduced price and was not disappointed...Course conditions were excellent even though it was the end of the season. The layout was challenging but fair (played the seniors tees). Staff were very friendly. All in all a great outing.
