Stay Below the Hole

Glendarin Hills has a strong reputation, and it lived up to it today. Staff was very friendly despite a frost delay at the outset. As for the course itself it is in great shape for April, and the greens were fast. Do. Not. Get. Above. The. Hole. The starter said the greens were not up to the usual speed they keep them at, and if he was telling the truth then yikes as they were quite fast and freshly rolled.

Layout gives a great mixture of holes with some in trees, some open, some have water along the way. Good ball striking can be rewarded here, but if you spray you'll pay. Beautiful to look at from first to last hole.

It's well worth the drive or the stop if you're on I-69./80/90 in NE Indiana. Easily one of the top 3 public courses in the state (others being Kampen at Purdue and Chariot Run in my opinion).

Great Course

This course is in fantastic condition similar to that you would expect of a top tier golf facility. I like that each hole is on its own and you don't see other golf holes. Lots of undulations and generally receptive to good tee shots. I am an 8.5 handicapper and shot low 90's from the white tees. the greens are large, fast and undulating. Hence I had lots of three putts. I enjoyed the course but at $69 I might not play it very often. The course based on quality and price of other area course should be more like $50.

Beautiful course

Very nice course with quick greens. Like the blue/green combination tees that played about 6200. Deer running around as you play. Only complaint was feeling pushed with singles and twosomes behind us with our foursome playing behind a group of 4 or 5 other fouresomes.

Beauty and speed in one

We played as a twosome on Sat. afternoon. Staff was friendly, after the round McKenna the cart girl then staffed the newly renovated bar to bring us a cold beer. Greens fast, fairways smooth, sand traps excellent. Driving range with piped in music. One of my favorite rounds of golf ever.

Rolling Hills that you don't find in NE Indiana

If I lived closer, I would definitely join Glendarin Hills. We always compare it to Sycamore Hills (a Jack Nicklaus course) in Fort Wayne, Indiana. In my opinion though, it's a far better course, maybe not in design because who can beat Jack, but in the layout of holes following the natural terrain of rolling hills and large growth forests which is hard to find in NE Indiana. Even if you're not a golfer but a nature buff, you would still love it. Just last week we encountered 3 family of wild turkeys and a fairly young buck deer.

Glendarin provided an excellent day for my son and I. We played from the back tees which made par a challenge and birdies difficult. Rolling fairways produced uneven lies which required additional adjustment. Wide fairways provrided initial security but as each hole unfolded many pins were only accessible from certain portions of fairways. Greens were true but a little slow, perhaps because of the recent rain. Looking forward to playing again but armed with course knowledge.

Best course around

It was the 2nd time playing here and it had been several years ago. This course is an hour and a half drive from our house and is worth the drive. Glendarin Hills is an absolute beautiful course and the staff is very welcoming. If you ever have the chance to play, I would recommend taking the time to give it a chance to impress. I wish we lived closer so we could play it more often.

Great course and great staff

This was my first time playing Glendarin, and I must say first impressions go a long way. I will be coming back. The course was in great, green and plush condition for middle of July. Challenging course compounded by challenging greens! Step up your short game. Pro shop and wait staff were amazing. Nice, accommodating and made the course that much better. Again I will definitely be making a trip to play here again!!

Nice course but overpriced

This is a nice course and I have always enjoyed it but the lack of a senior rate on Fridays (why when the course was not very full?) and the $69 green fees make this a very poor value for the price. Food and drink also overpriced. It seems they don't really want non members to play with these high rates.

Great course

The staff was very friendly. The course was in great condition. The carts have gps using an iPad so every hole was very easy to navigate. I play all over northeast Indiana each summer and this one of the nicest courses and most challenging course in the area. Just a personal vice. The carts are equipped with sensors that don't allow them to operate or operate at very small fraction of power when within the zone near the green (no cart area). This is a very nice touch and a good way to keep the approaches nice. The only caveat is that these zones can be very large. We found some up to 60 yards away from the green. so my only warning is if you cannot or have trouble logging a lot of walking steps this may not be the course for you.

Great day on the course

Friendly staff throughout. Course was in terrific shape for late April. Free driving range for warming up. Plenty of space between tee times. Look forward to playing again
