5.5 hours to play is ridiculous. The group in front of us looked like they had never hit a golf ball before.
Great Course But
Course is great, but the management for the pace of play was horrible. Ended up playing for 6 hours. At on point, there were 6 groups on one hole, 4 groups waiting to tee of, one in the fairway and one on the green. No one came to offer a solution or compensation. Ended up playing 3 holes in the dark. This was a very bad experience for is. We have never ever ran in to this kind of situation anywhere else we have played, across Canada and the States.
Finally played the Abbey
I’m glad I was able to play this course especially a few weeks after the Canadian Open. Course is very well maintained. Unfortunately a storm came through making the course virtually unplayable. It’s not cheap but worth the experience.
TOo many people
Now ... don’t get me wrong... I like people
People are good
But even the best people need time on the golf course .
Today however, we were jammed up right from hole # 2
Five hours and we could only finish 14 holes properly.
Too many groups going off
Nine minutes apart is a recipe for disaster here
The course was in phenomenal shape.. the open here last week so I can imagine everyone wants on ..
Just too many groups
A gem worth playing and saving.
This was my first time at glen abbey. And wow it is more beautiful to play than just watching on tv. Very thick rough amazing bunkers and perfect greens (though tough. ). Apparently this course is set to be demolished and turned into a housing development. That would truly be sad. Let’s try to keep this gem open and find another space to develop.
Glen Abbey is still grand
Played this course due to the ongoing discussions to shut it down. Played it in the past prior to it being a Clublink course. Still a great track. A Canadian icon.
Too many golfers jammed in. Very slow pace over 5 hours
A must play!
Played just three days after DJ won Canadian Open here. A great course, very fair to play (played from blue tees), with interesting green complexes to challenge you. Rough around the greens was very long and lush, perhaps still not cut back from tournament. Course was a little busy and loud with deconstruction of spectator stands and such, but this had no impact on play. It was a treat to play a course that you just spent hours watching on tv.
One negative was pace of play. Course used split tees for afternoon tee times, which was no issue.
We teed off on number 10. Starter there was friendly and welcoming. Group immediately in front of us was painfully slow, leaving a large gap between them and groups ahead. My specific complaint was that there was never an on course marshal to help move play along at a respectable pace. Even if the starter at number one had still been in place as groups made the turn, some of this could have been mitigated.
Overall round took well over 5 hours to play. (Unacceptable anywhere) So word to the wise for booking late afternoon times, there would be a great chance of not completing your round.
