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.

Great Greens

The start of the round was a bit slow but gradually opened up bc the crew was out asking golfers to pick up the pace. The course is in the best shape I have seen. Challenging but not too tough. Great new carts and the staff was very friendly and accommodating.

Open but challenging course

Unless you are spending $100+ for a round of golf, you’ll never get nearly “perfect” overall course conditions. Glade Valley is a beautiful course with great greens, fairways and rough. The sand traps need attention to make them playable like a sand trap; they are playable as a chip/lob shot but few were good enough for a sand blast. But I went in only one: observed from the others in my foursome the issues.
The club house staff and grill were friendly and very nice. Made you feel at home. Carts are brand new and wonderful.
I play weekdays so I can’t speak for weekend pace of play, but Friday was a great round of golf with a nice 3some I got paired with.
Thank you Glade Valley for an enjoyable day. Already booking my next round

Just slow

Wish people would fix their dang divots. Sand traps need a lot of TLC. But the place was horrible. 4 were a foursome and had my 3 year old granddaughter w us. We had to wait on most shots so at least she got to play a lot. We always have a good time hear but they need Marshall's to either push people along or have them let folks thru. We just expect it now.

Course was in great shape

Tee boxes, fairways and especially greens were in great shape. You can tell that there is great effort going into maintenance which made for a great experience. Play was a bit slow but not too bad.
