Solid course. Good value.

Staff was super helpful and friendly. Holiday weekend, so we played pretty slow.

Greens are decent. A little patchy in places, but not awful. The whole course is pretty low lying, so it's generally squishy/wet on fairways and greens.

Set a new best 18 hole score, so this course ranks high on my list at the moment. Ha.

Needs work - help is on the way.

The greens are terrible. They are being worked on but right now they are terrible. They are working on cleaning up the course -getting rid of old dead tress and brush and seemingly doing a great job of it. In time, this should be an interesting course to play.

Very enjoyable

First I thought to write a really bad review to keep this little gem of a course from being run over by the crowd. But that would be unfair. After a few hectic and unpleasant rounds of golf on crowded courses on our ten day vacation here in FL, Glen Abbey was a great pleasure to play. From the relaxed friendliness of the staff, the lack of red tape to the layout of the fairways, everything was enjoyable. Of course there is room for improvement: The greens could use a little TLC, the fairways are currently dry (Yeah, that is nature), the carts could be electric and the restaurant could use a Michelin-Star chef, and so on. But what a nice course this is overall. We will come again, that's for sure.

Off Road

Horrible Tee boxes, fairways are so-so. Terrain around the greens is ridiculous. Would be easier to play in a cow pasture. Spend a few more $$ and play on the west side of 17&92!!!!

Needs some love

For a high handicapper this course isn’t bad for the fee - really interesting layout, but course conditions are suspect.

Another enjoyable afternoon out doors

The course was quite busy but the faster players went ahead and we passed the slower ones. Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves and was very friendly. The course was pretty dry and except for the wind it was a great round. I'll have to play this course again - soon.

The course is mostly in pretty good shape. There are still a few places that haven't dried out and there are a couple places where they are working on the course. The weather was a factor again - cool and windy. A wind breaker jacket was the item of the day to wear. I had a good time and enjoyed myself. Got some fresh air and a little exercise. All in all it has been a good day.

Play Glen Abbey for a comfortable and relaxing round of golf

Glen Abbey allowed me to have a vert relaxing afternoon. The course is being worked on in a few different areas and there is a minor problem with a few low areas that had not totally dried out yet. I enjoyed playing this course and will undoubtedly play here again - many times.

Don’t go

This course was in terrible condition and the customer service wasn’t much better. The course is very old and hasn’t been updated in years. I don’t recommend.

Must Play and I will play again

What a nice day! This course is a jewel, rough, but a jewel.
It has several holes that would rank with the best holes I’ve ever played. Greens are getting better, could see where goosegrass has been sprayed. Lots of rain lately had some areas very wet. The Owner and the locals are worth the trip. Had a very nice afternoon and will surely return. Sure it was a treasure in its past. Go Play It!

The course was little rough in places, but greens were good! I will play there again! Oh, and the rough needs mowed!
