Prestigious In Name Only

Glen Abbey was always considered a prestigious course to play. That is no longer the case.
The gentleman we were paired with indicated Club Link had considered selling this course for residential development, but has since changed their plans. This initial consideration may explain the condition of the course. The tee boxes were in terrible condition. Fairways and greens for this time of year were pretty good although it’s clear that there are individuals playing the course that have no concept of divot repair, ball mark repair and the raking of bunkers. The carts weren’t in great shape. Ours was very difficult to steer, had a parking break that required creative parking and a flat tire. We stopped at the clubhouse after 9 and they kindly brought a new one out to us.
I am not sorry we played here. We played later in the day and received a good rate. I would leave it a year while the owners commit to it being a first rate golf course and then try it again.

Overpriced

The course is overpriced. The course condition was poor for the price we paid. The clubhouse was outdated, but clean.

I thought the starter was great, we enjoyed speaking with him and the greeter was patient and polite with us. There was no cart service, but the attendants at the snack shop were rude and I was made to feel like I was interrupting there most important discussion…btw, everything in the snack shop was over priced.

I was eager to play a course with such a rich history, but my overall experience and the value I got for my money was disappointing. There are better priced courses that offer a greater value (eg TPC Osprey Valley) than Glen Abbey…spend your money there.

Slow pace of play

Course was extremely slow because of club championship which led to wait times on every tee deck and on many approach shots.

great day

Course was in great shape and we had a spectacular day all around. My only complaint was that they were doing split tees and had us off the 10th which means starting with the difficult valley holes.

Overall I wanted to share an iconic course with my son in case it disappears one day. Mission accomplished.

Expensive, but fun experience

Sand bunkers were very challenging. I got used to having very little sand in bunkers on most courses during Covid but these had lots! Course was in great shape. Very enjoyable day but at these prices it is special occasions only.
