Red at Gleneagles Country Club
Gleneagles County Club is home to two 18-hole golf courses, the Red and White. Opened in 1924, both courses have traditional layouts that have withstood the test of time. The Red Course, also known as the Lakes, is the longer of the two. Water hazards come into play on several holes, including what is considered the club's best par 3. The Red's 16th is a 170-yard hole that plays directly into the wind to an elevated green that is protected in front by a pond. It's a tough green to hit but a relatively easy one to putt. Both Gleneagles golf courses appeal to a wide range of skill levels, which is one reason why the club is known as the "Home of the Shotgun Start," serving as host to hundreds of golf outings every year.

Late in the season greenns a little fast but overall nice day
Almost 5 hour round on a Tuesday, 52 degrees out - arghh!
Started at 10:20am and finished at 3pm. That is nearing a 5 hour round on a Tuesday morning/afternoon! Cannot play here again. I cannot sit around for that slow of a round. Several 5-some groups out there and several slow shimmy walking elder players. I am happy for the course for their profitability...but, rangers got to move people along. So frustrating. Price was great but not worth it at that slow of round of golf - that's why I would not play here again. Course itself was pretty good condition and couple cool challenging holes (doglegs, forced carries, some undulation, etc). Lots of very courteous maintenance staff out there working hard. Kudos for that investment/cost outlay from course.
I play the course twice a week . Tuesday Am and Wed afternoons.
The condition has been good all year but this last month it has been great.
Fairways always good but now even the rough has been cut up to 10 feet from fareways making it more fun. Enjoy the back nine on red
A nice course to play. Back nine more of a challenge
but in great shape most likely because a lot just play the front nine. Play the two course here weekly twice a week. Again a great course for the money.
I have played this course many times fairways are good the rough can be challenging when they are not mowed the greens are small but receptive. The BUNKERS stink I know we try to avoid them but when you are in them there is very little to no sand at all.
Great golf course
The course was in great shape small greens on red course the only problem we had was the cart died in the middle of the 18th fairway and had to walk the rest of hole.
Had a good time but one complaint
If you miss the fairway by even a few feet there is a good chance your ball is lost. A few times my ball was less than 10 feet off the fairway and it was difficult if not impossible to find. Cut the grass. We're not playing the US Open...
Very disappointed with the conditions of the red course. First of all, the course isn't very well marked to follow from one hole to another. Some tee boxes are back to back for two different holes which is tough for teeing off. Women's tee boxes on some of the holes are so small & slanted besides being way too long that it was difficult to tee off. Pace of play was much too slow. Got to the 17th hole & the maintenance crew decided to water the green while we were going to hit onto it. Kept us waiting & waiting, wouldn't move even though we called to them a couple of times so we finally just hit our shots!! Complained to the pro shop afterwards about this situation. Will never go back to play this course again. There is too many courses in the midwest that offer better!
Went off at 6:05 Moved along fine Done by 9:15
Course in great shape .
Fringe around greens were higher then normal
Brought a friends, they loved it!
I've played Gleneagles about 3 or 4 times since 2017 and I have had nothing but exceptional experiences, and a fun time with each visit! Several weeks ago I had my foursome of my girlfriend and her daughter, and my friend Joe - neither of them have ever played Gleneagles before - and they all had a great time. June 5th I played with my friend Anthony, who hasn't been to Gleneagles in about 10 years, and he also enjoyed the course. Everyone will definitely be back to play again with me.
Great Value Course was in great shape
Got a great deal from GolfNow - great value for the course which was in great shape. Bunkers had water but were being pumped out by the staff which were respectful of golfers. Check in was easy and staff was friendly!
Great staff and well kept course...great afternoon of golf!
Played with my golf buddy. We play any weather above 35 degrees. The course was in great shape for the fall. Got a great deal $12 bucks. Red course is challenging. Leaves were not a factor as they were cleared off the fairways.
Great holes and close in
Our group plays the Gleneagles several times a year. We always enjoy playing there although the sand traps need some work. Don't miss the fish sandwiches at the grill after your round.
Much Improved conditions
Last time I played this course 2 yrs ago the fairways were rock hard and burnt, greens were severely beat up.......Yesterday I gave it another shot because golfnow had a great hot deal I couldn't pass up....I was very surprised and impressed by the current conditions, fairways were nice and green, very nice to hit off of. Greens were in great shape, rolled true and were fairly quick. Only bad thing, No driving range or chipping area, just a small putting green!
