Where2Golf says: 

Glenmarie Golf & Country Club (Garden course): With its distinctive blue-roofed clubhouse, which sports an impressive clock tower, Glenmarie boasts two excellent 18-hole championship layouts. The fractionally longer Garden course offers floodlit night golf, while the Valley course also provides a very pleasant golf outing in a well-presented parkland setting. Gently sloping down to some small lakes in its lower sections, the almost bowl-like terrain of the Garden course creates an open feel to much of the layout. In this relatively open environment, the holes are well-spaced, rarely if ever intruding on each other. The opening two holes on the Garden course may have you thinking that water will be a constant threat, but don't worry. Only two further holes, the par-4 5th and short, snaking par-5 12th have water seriously in play. Much of the challenge here comes from judging your approach shots into large, fast and undulating greens, while staying out of quite deep and abundant greenside bunkers. Avoiding the clinging semi-rough, especially around the greens will also benefit your score. With a lightish scattering of palms and other trees along the nicely contoured fairways, most parts of the course are visible from most other parts of the course. From the higher elevations on the back-nine you may just be able to glimpse downtown KL and the Petronas Tower, while high-rise apartment blocks appear beyond the course perimeter on the front-nine. The more garden-like character and often better maintenance standards of this layout give it the edge (in our view) over its companion Valley course, but not all club members would agree with this. As ever, best to play them both and then you decide !
