GlenRiddle Golf Club (War Admiral course)


4-star: generally an excellent standard golf course, well worth visiting.

Where2Golf says: 

Glenriddle Golf Club is home to two 18-hole championship golf courses, the well-rated and pleasantly testing Man O'War and War Admiral layouts.

Like its sibling, the War Admiral course is a tree-lined parkland course that should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy. War Admiral is routed through mature forest and offers a different golf experience to the Man O'War course.

The site's tidal marsh comes into play on five holes, offering many memorable views. Rugged bunkering, reminiscent of golf's past is also a key feature of the War Admiral layout. Plenty of golfing challenge, a well-crafted design and usually good upkeep all contribute to the appeal of this course. One to include on your play list if you are in the area.

Did you know?

GlenRiddle Golf Club occupies what was formerly the famous Riddle Farm, a large and prestigious horse farm owned by wealthy textile merchant, Samuel D. Riddle (1861-1951). The Thoroughbred horses bred and trained at Riddle Farm, horses like Man O' War (nicknamed "Big Red"), War Admiral (Man o' War's son), Crusader, War Relic, American Flag and Seabiscuit (Man o' War's grandson), are credited with changing the history of American horse racing. In addition to the mansion and large stable block (now the clubhouse and home to a Ruth's Chris Steak House), the farm had a racing oval for training the horses. Many artefacts from the racing days can be found throughout the buildings, and around the golf course. | GlenRiddle Golf Club is a member of the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary System and the Ruark Golf group.
