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.

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

Greens need help from the golfers

I always enjoy playing at Glade Valley due to the value for the money. First time playing after more than six months. The course condition is good but the greens need a lot of help from the fellow golfers and golf course maintenance. Too many un-repaired golf marks on the greens. If every one fixes the ball marks, they will be in great shape.

Good Course for a weekly round

Because of our recent weather the course is in very good shape, not burned out. Greens were in great shape and actually a little faster than usual. Played 18 holes in a threesome in just under 4 hours. No wait at any hole. My only complaint is that a couple holes are extremely difficult off the tees due to the trees growth, requires a really accurate tee shot to get out of the shoot created. Need to trim the limbs back just a little. Other than that the course was great.

Always a favorite course

I like the courze layout. Pretty straight forward and wel, maintained. A pretty good storm passed through the night before and and damage was being adressed. Greens were in good shape as well as fairways.

Good Course at a Great Value!!

Today was my first visit to Glade Valley GC. The course is pretty straight forward w/ minimal if any doglegs. If you play from the white or blue tees, it presents a solid challenge. The greens were in very good shape while the fairways were solid. I like the height they cut the fairways. No super ties lies. Got a great rate on Golf Now.. I lost my car keys in the course and the staff couldn’t have been nicer trying to help me find the keys. Luckily, someone found them and the pro shop employee called me immediately.. I would definitely recommend Glade Valley GC.

Good time golf

I had my two son's with me and we had a good time. None of us play consistently enough to be scratch golfers so we appreciate the patience of the golfers around us. We all thought the course was in pretty good shape. Greens were better than average. Definitely will return.

Needs a little TLC.

The greens have some kind of a disease trying to take them over. Water kegs were either empty or hot. The course is in need of a little tender loving care.

this course has fast greens

Great course, very nice staff. Only problem is the sand traps need work sand is hard as a rock, looks like someone put construction sand in the traps. Every year they are making improvements and are always working on the course. Love the long and pleasant drive of 38 miles up to the course. I will always play here.

Great for Working on Your Game

I play Glade Valley 2-3 times a year (it's over an hour drive for me). I like the layout, and there's not much trouble. All the trees running alongside the holes have been cleaned out beneath, so if you are errant, it's pretty easy to find your ball. The course was in good shape, and the rough was thick and long. My only concerns were pace of play as there was no marshal keeping things moving and the gaps filled. And, players at this course are pretty errant...watch for in-coming balls from other holes. The staff was very nice, and we were given a nice discount on greens fees, which was very nice. And, we were put out early, as several people simply didn't show up. I would definitely return but might consider a non-weekend tee time because of the pace of play.
