Detailed description of Regents Glen Country Club

Regents' Glen Country Club, is a Private, 18 hole golf course located in York, Pennsylvania.

Regents' Glen Country Club first opened for play in 1998. The course was designed by Arthur Hills.

The course at Regents' Glen is extremely playable, but, with plenty of challenges that will test your best shot-making skills.

The course begins simply enough, with a front side laid out on gently undulating meadows, perfect for those who might like to walk a leisurely nine. The back side, however, is a little more hilly, and a little more difficult, with strategically placed bunkers, lakes and a hidden brook that lies in wait for miss-hit shots.

#11 has a large, devilishly situated lake that presents a serious challenge. Those who dare to carry a large portion of this hazard will be rewarded with a shorter approach to the flagstick. But the hidden brook and deep bunker in front of the green make arriving in regulation a tall order, regardless of the strategy one chooses from the tee.

#13, a 343-yard, par 4, is the signature hole and features a dogleg right fairway that plays downhill and over a creek to a double-tiered green. #13 passes through a heavily wooded glen, giving the course its name and giving inaccurate golfers trouble.

#15 reads as a short par four on the card, but with an extreme dogleg right, it takes a long drive to see the pin. Proper club selection and accuracy are important on the approach, as a misjudged shot here will reacquaint you with the hidden brook.

#16 and #17 are back-to-back par fives. These two long holes give you the opportunity to use several different clubs.

#18 is one of the most beautiful finishing holes you will find.

Regents' Glen Country Club plays to a par-72 and a maximum distance of 6,188 yards. The course rating is 70.2 with a slope rating of 126.

Our band of travelling seniors played here 6-9-15, as arranged by one of our group who lives nearby. Only paid $30 for this outstanding experience, a very good deal.

The course is relatively short, but more than compensates with a very clever design that employs every architectural trick in the designer's book (thankfully, no railroad ties). IMHO, course is not walkable for anyone, as there are some very significant distances between holes, especially on the back nine. No two holes look alike, and there is significant elevation change on the back nine, which is MUCH tougher than the front. The front nine is relatively open, with generous landing areas, but lots of fairway bunkers adjacent to the desired target line. Most greens allow for a pitch-and-run, with only a few having front bunkers. The greens themselves are medium large, all undulate, some have serious gradients. Good use of terrain throughout the course, with meandering streams, and a couple of good-sized ponds. The back nine looks much different than the front, as the course wends through the surrounding development (upscale, over-50 community), generating some very interesting holes. The stretch of 11-12-13 is particularly memorable: it's Regent's Glen version of the Amen Corner. 11 is a par 4 with a large pond down the entire left side, houses on the right that are in sight, and could be in play of wayward drives, the green is fronted by a stream that feeds the pond: to lay up or not, that is the question. 12 is a shortish par 3, with a ravine to the front right of the green, and a steep hillside and bunker on the left. Number 13 is the most demanding of all: a downhill dogleg right, fairway sloping sharply to the right, with that same stream along the right side, and towering trees inside the corner of the dogleg. First challenge is to get one's drive far enough down and to the left/middle to be able to even see the green. Then one must hit a shot that will clear the stream, avoid the trees and not overfly the green into the rough behind. Daunting!

Conditions yesterday were excellent, although the bunkers were too firm as a result of the previous night's rain. The bunker guy was making his rounds as we played. Fairways and tees were lush, rough was juicy, and greens were firm and MUCH faster than those on the public courses our usually plays. In fact, the practice greens may have been a bit slower than those on the course, which is unusual. Staff we encountered were uniformly professional and friendly, both on course and in the pro shop and bar. Overall, a very positive golf experience, and one we'd all like to repeat. We very highly recommend.

Would travel: 60-120 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Bargain priced based on quality and competitive area pricing, Best course in the area
