Our traveling group from Crown Point made the trek over to Glenwoodie this season in April. The weather was bitter for the day but the course was simply outstanding and the finest I have seen it for many years. The fairways we're lush and green and the greens we're large, undulating and challenging. Many tees are available and the course was pristine on our day early in the season. In addition, the staff were very friendly and receptive to our being there on that dank day. All thought this course was really challenging and in top condition. We had coupons to utilize and the rates we're very fair. We will be back when the weather gets warmer. Maybe one of the nicest courses in the area.

Was greatly surprised by upgrades to course. In fabulous shape, Tee to Green. Still using rocks for balls on driving range only bad comment.

Awesome course. Have played it for years. Only problem was extremely slow play that day, but it is not a easy course. #16 is the hardest par 4 I have ever played. Great value for old traditional course. Overhit one of the par 4s and when I drove to my ball the cart died. Said I was to close to green. Had to call clubhouse to activate cart. Felt like Big Brother was watching!

Played the course for the 1st time. Very good course layout. The fairways and greens were in great shape. I probally would have enjoyed it better if the heat wasn't so bad. The heat index was around 105.
