Golf Digest's Top 75 Public Courses included Glenview Golf Course once upon a time, and the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship was played there once, too. Even if the golf course's prestige has faded a bit - or simply been surpassed by golf courses that were designed more recently - the golf course still offers a test and still draws golfers.

If golfers choose to golf the South and West golf courses in tandem at the Glenview golf club, they'd be looking at a route that would take them 6,843 yards from the Black tees. Teeing off on the South Course, golfers would have to travel 401 yards from the Black tees and do it with a par of 4. Things get long on the South Course's third hole, a par 5 that measures 547 yards from the Black tees and is one of four holes that play to over 500 yards on this route.

The West Course's ninth hole is one of these, requiring golfers who go South Course to West Course at the Glenview Golf Course to close out on a par 5 that measures 541 yards from the Black tees.

Nice muni

Course was in rough shape due to 3-4” of rain the night before.
Greens excellent, and the course should be back in good shape when things dry out.

Nice course

I live and Florida and was in Cincy to visit family. The tee boxes and greens were in excellent shape. The contours were very different from what you generally see in Florida.
Staff was courteous and friendly. I recommend

Another fun day at Glenview

We are pretty regular during the summer and this was our first time out this summer. The course is in pretty good shape considering how much rain we’ve had. The rough was a major factor in our scoring, you have to stay in the fairways! The greens rolled very well, a bit slow today but I was happy with them. I think they could do something with the forward tees so that women wouldn’t have such a long carry to the fairway. Would also speed up play.

Not Worth Time or Money

Played this course several times over the past few years, mainly on weekends. You can expect a 5 hour round most weekends and you’ll never be allowed to play the East course (at least the handful of times I’ve asked I’ve been given a different excuse each time). Took a vacation day today (Friday 6/11) and was first group out. Made the turn and we got stuck behind 2 groups of elderly 3 zones walking on hole 10. And we waited behind them hoping to get let through until hole -4 when we decided to just skip in front of them. Not their fault it’s the courses fault for letting other groups tee off on the back 9 when you know you have groups making the turn shortly after. Wasn’t even compensated anything for the issue. Will not be playing again.
