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?

Really need to improve on pace of play. Every time I play it's over 5 hours.
Course was in good shape though.

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.

There is no way you should go her

I had the misfortune of paying a lot of money ($160) for an extremely slow round (2:45 for 9 holes) with poor playing conditions (all of the greens were aerated). My sense is that this place is a cash cow for the company that runs it. In fact the assistant in the pro shop said to someone on the phone that there is a corporate event their everyday. (I found this out while I was returning a shirt that I bought because I was disgusted with the place.) Crazy story - one of the "player assistance employees asked my group to "make sure that we kept pace of play" - while we were the third group waiting mid way through the first nine on a tee box. Talk about gaul!

Hi Jimmcconeghy. Thanks for taking the time to review your recent round with us.

Although we are disappointed to hear of your comments, we would like the opportunity to discuss offline, we are available at playersclub@clublink.ca.

Glen Abbey is an active corporate event course, with many dates pre-booked, especially in June and September - although that wouldn't impact your visit on a non-event day.

We hope to hear from you for a future round opportunity.

This is a PGA tournament course???

Got a great price to play a PGA tour stop.
Staff was good. Marshall said it would be slow and it did take 5 hours to play.
14th green was not even cut and 16th was not complete cut.
There is no way you can charge people over $100 for a round. Carts don't even come with GPS.

Expected More

Maybe we just came on a bad day (a tournament was concluding as we arrived), because we didn’t have the golf experience we hoped for when we booked. The course was run down with lots of on course maintenance occurring. The pro shop staff was stretched thin and it took quite a bit of time just to check in. Getting basic information (where’s the range, directions to 1st tee) required us tracking someone down to ask rather than being provided an overview at check-in. The course layout was fun and the weather was good, so that helped counter-balance the deficits. Overall, an average golf experience.
