Great Course

First time at this course, while some fairways were a bit wet because of heavy rain a day before it was still a great experience. I wouldn't want to walk it... it is very long and hilly... but very beautiful. Challenge level about s 5-7... I will play this course again.

Very scenic and pretty course

Overall very nice course with nice layout. It also has a very hilly terrain with a lot of nice scenery. The river running through out the course makes for a nice peaceful surrounding.

Great course

Would have been perfect but they had just agitated the greens. Still the ball ran true. The course has plenty of great shots, great lay out, creeks to go over, dog legs right and left. These were shown on the card and granite hole markers. All in all, lots of fun. Couldnt have asked for a more diverse and interesting course.

Wonderful Course. Excellent value!

Absolutely loved this course. I'm from Toledo, OH. This course had more elevation changes than the entire city of Toledo. I played with my brother-in-law - he is a caddie at Inverness (Toledo's pro level course) - he said that Gladstone was about as well kept as Inverness.
If this wasn't the best course I've ever played (questionable) - it was certainly the best value.
10 out of 10. Would highly recommend. We will be back.
