Glenwood is Good, but not Great
3 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Glenwood Park is a beautiful, scenic park surrounding a decently sized lake, giving a few holes beautiful views of the water or the surrounding hills and valleys.
The tee signs were cool; hand-painted with distance, map and par, adequate information for a course where most every basket is visible from the tee.
Elevation on this course comes into play a lot. There were a lot of downhill shots, as well as the occasional uphill crush. Definitely some fun options in these scenarios.
A good variation of open holes and wooded holes, as well as holes requiring a left turning shot, or a right turning shot. This gives players a variety of shots to throw off the tee, and you will throw most, to an extent, every shot in your bag.
Cons: There are not a lot of holes that require a distance shot, especially if you have a large amount of power. I probably threw my driver on 6-9 holes, even on some of the par fours.
The tees were gravel, which is definitely not ideal and leads to some unfortunate slipping on tee shots, which wasn't a huge problem, but made me think a few times.
There was only one tee sign per hole, and it was with the white tee. If you play a different tee, navigation could be confusing, so I would suggest playing the whites for the most stress free and enjoyable round.
The course plays with the road, walking paths, picnic shelters, etc. in play on a good amount of holes. In fact, there was a car parked directly in the fairway on one of the first holes. C;mon people!
Another little safety issue, there was a short, downhill hole where the basket is placed between two playing courts. If I were you, if there was someone on the courts, just skip this hole, or it could be bad news.
Other Thoughts: This course has a lot of fun shots, and is definitely worth playing if you are, for some reason, in the area, or driving through. With concrete tees and a few different hole ideas, it would be a lot better, but for now, it is a solid course.
