Nestled in the foothills of the Catoctin Mountains about 15 minutes from Fredricksburg, Glade Valley Golf Club has been selected as a top-100 golf course in the Mid-Atlantic region by Washington Golf Monthly. The Jim Reck design, which opened in 1990, has a nice mix of woods, water, natural habitat and sand traps that will test golfers, but the golf course isn't overly difficult.

Fun course

Fun course to play, and challenging at times. Starter did not pair up any twosomes into foursomes, which limited our play to 11 holes of the 18 we intended to play. Overall, course conditions were good, and the carts were average, but in good shape. Would try the course again, if in the area. Good value for the cost.

Thank you so much for the great review. We are glad you had an incredible time, and we hope to see you again soon. We do apologize for the delay of play during your round though. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. We work hard to accommodate everyone who visits our course and to best control pace allowing everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve, and we are glad to see you rated the course conditions to be great during your game. Thank you for playing Glade Valley Golf Club. We hope to see you again soon.

First time here and plan to return!

Due to waiting for the covid vaccine this was my first time on the course and golf for 2021. No waiting on the tee boxes or holes for anyone and the course was in good shape. If you miss the fairway the rough is playable.

Also the holes are wide enough so an errant shot can be recovered. I like the layout. Not that challenging but fun. Also the greens are very fair. Not slow or fast or have any real slopes. They are large and maybe it’s a ball or two break on each.

Will return here again.
