Great course but

Surprised how much I enjoyed the course and layout. Very open off the tee but demanding approach shots. Conditions were good given time of year. Greens were good speed and were quite difficult to read. only complaints were bunkers were not raked and only one bathroom open on the entire property. 130 bucks may be a discounted rate there but it's hardly cheap and for that price they can rake the bunkers from time to time. Would like to go back to experience mid season conditions.

A shadow of it former glory

Obviously it GelnAbby so expectations are high. Fairways, perfect and greens flat, tee blocks flat and level.
Pace very slow, no starter, or Marshall’s, and leaves everywhere. I get it that it’s fall, but never fun losing balls in the middle of the fairway. Traps not raked, so unplayable, I am sure due to the virus.

All that said, an amazing opportunity to play this professional grade course, which sadly may be gone for ever.
Best to all

Power-cart became push-cart

Played 9 holes on Saturday afternoon. Pace of play was slower than expected, need to wait for 4 minutes or more starting at the 2nd hole. My golf cart's battery ran out of energy before I did, had to drove-pushed-walked the last 3 holes. The condition of the course, in particular the greens, were below standard.
Hope to have better experience next time...somewhere else.

Glen Abbey

The only reason why I didn’t give this 5 stars is because we had to push our cart up the hills until it finally died on the 17th and we decided to walk the remaining two holes.
I also was not impressed with how arrogant the male staff was.

A rush to beat the dark

We booked a twilight promotion for $99 at 2:50pm. I have never played Glen Abbey due to the cost, but this was a decent price and our last round of the year. Naturally we were pumped to play quick and get as many holes in as possible. The course was beautiful. Holes all felt different and the valley views were picturesque. Sadly the group in front of us didnt have our drive to play quick and we couldn't finish the 18th because it was too dark. The fairways and tee boxes were not in as good of a shape as I would expect for the prestige of this course and the money. Ball marks all over the greens, unfilled divots all over the fairways and tee boxes. I would still go back on a promotional rate, but was a bit disappointed by the condition.

Keep Glen Abbey open

The course is in good shape but there are certain parts that start needing attention and I hope hope that they keep up the course to a level it deserves until a permanent decision is made on its future. things like the retaining wall on the cart path between 15 and 16 is starting to fail needs to addressed. and just some areas around the course are starting to show it age. Othr than that the course itself is still a challenge and has more than one signature hole. I especially like the 11th hole
