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.

My first time at this hidden gem, I walked 18 in just under 3 hours and found the greens the best I have played all year so far, however they were very fast leading to a few 3 putts.

It's been a few years since I played this course. I can't remember why it's been so long. The course has a great layout with challenging holes that make you think about your shots. It was in great shape, especially with all the rain the past weeks. Greens were firm and read true. I look forward to returning.

Took a hot deal as I just wanted 18 and wasn’t picky.

Glade Valley turned out to be a well kept course and at 3 pm on a Friday not too crowded. Due to traffic I was 30 minutes late for my tee time. Staff was very accommodating and let me go right out.

Medium speed greens with a true roll. Fairways were excellent but the rough was challenging due to the excessive rain.

Overall an excellent experience.

Course was in good condition especially after lots of rain in previous days. The first four holes went quickly but slowed down after that. There was a foursome that was extremely slow two groups ahead of us which changed a 4 hour afternoon of golf into a 5 hour one.

I booked on Golf Now. Had never played course before. I was a one ball and got grouped with a father and son who knew the course and were out for their first round of the season. The speed of play was fair considering the course was busy on Sunday. An interesting course that has a bit of variety and water is in play on some holes. It is fairly well kept. Some of the greens are bumpy though and the green speeds are not all the same. I will definitely play the course again.

I like that one of the staff (Mike Thompson) walked to the parking lot and took my golf cart back for me. It was nice because I was late and I was really tired and ready to drive home.

Enjoyed the experience.

I have played Glade Valley 2-3 times but today was an absolute pleasure. Michael Thompson and his staff were so friendly and they treated us like we were family. The course was in great shape, the greens were fast, the bunkers were well manicured. The pace of play was fast and the round of golf was just awesome.

This golf course is a hidden gem. I would highly recommend calling Michael Thompson at Glade Valley if you are looking to play at a wonderful golf course with wonderful service.
