About

Holes 18
Par 72
Length 7060
Slope 130
Rating 73.7
Type Public
Garrisons Lake Golf Club, nine miles north of Dover, is a historic play centrally located to all parts of Delaware. The course is nature friendly: with tree-lined fairways and large, well bunkered greens throughout. The par-72, 7,060-yard course was recently renovated and improved, and players of all abilities will be confronted with a fair challenge. Not that there aren’t hurdles. Garrisons Lake is book-ended by two long plays: The 535-yard, par-5 first features out of bounds along the left side, and the 536-yard 17th features a challenging tee shot with trees on the right side. Garrisons Lake Golf Club also has a bustling practice range, putting green, golf shop and snack bar.

aeration

When we arrived, we found out they were aerating the front nine and they kindly allowed us to play back nine twice. Back nine was in pretty good shape and we appreciated them allowing us to play that way, but we would have liked notice of aeration on golfnow.com when we booked our round.

GLGC

GLGC is a tree tree lined moderate length course of reasonable difficulty. The course is in truly great shape with the exception of some of the bunkers. Kurt is a great guy and his staff are are attentive and friendly.

great local course

This course is a great value. The staff is friendly, and the course is in good shape. Some of the fairways could be cut a little closer, but overall it is well kept.
