Nestled in the foothills of the Catoctin Mountains about 15 minutes from Fredricksburg, Glade Valley Golf Club has been selected as a top-100 golf course in the Mid-Atlantic region by Washington Golf Monthly. The Jim Reck design, which opened in 1990, has a nice mix of woods, water, natural habitat and sand traps that will test golfers, but the golf course isn't overly difficult.

Terrible Shape

The cashier was unfriendly, the greens are a mess (mud spots everywhere, rough, very inconsistent roll), fairways not mowed (like rough), and many tee boxes were at least 1/2 dirt. The only green that was in decent shape was 18. I know the course is on the lower end of the spectrum, but it’s usually a lot nicer. I hope they can get it back next year but we won’t be back this year.

Stay away

I have been playing here since 2015, Glade has always been in great condition. But lately it’s gone from a A+ to a C-. This weekend the starter said they rolled the greens, first green was so bumpy and so were the rest of them. Fairways had divots and bare spots, the rough was so thick and deep we were loosing our balls, but found others that golfers lost.
The value is great but the course needs work, I know it’s been very hot this summer.
I’m going to stay away till maybe fall hoping the course improves.

Disappointingly not what it used to be.

I've been playing this course since 2012. Used to be a regular and have always looked forward to giving this track a go. However, this is the first time I've played here this year and I can say it's easily in the worst shape I've ever seen it. Goose grass has invaded the entire course, divots are covering the fairways and the greens, and most of the tee boxes are worn down to nearly dirt. The rough looks like it hasn't been cut in weeks on most of the holes. Half of the greens are hard as rock, my ball was bouncing like it would on a trampoline, the other half are softer than an underbaked cake. They did roll half decent but overall I was very disappointed in the shape the course is in. On top of the condtionsz the staff was very poor as well. No starter, groups were putting themselves together and the guy working the front desk had no people skills whatsoever. Normally I love bringing friends here but I won't be back for a long time.

Decent Day

Rough around the greens was high, and thinking they are keeping it this way through the hot summer. Made short chips challenging. Greens could use some work as there is alot of ball damage. Anything landing on the greens were sticking but made large ball marks. Overall good for the money.

Pretty reliable course

We have played Glade Valley several times. The course is pretty consistent. Some tough holes and some easier ones to mess up too. (that's golf) greens were a little pitted but mostly ran true. Rough was rough and a little thick but playable. We will be going back for sure

Good value for your money

The staff here is very friendly. The course was in good shape. The pace of play for the most part was a little slow.
It is a good value for your money.
