The Glen Club

4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 2001

The Glen Club is home to an excellent Tom Fazio designed parkland layout that contains a wealth of wonderfully crafted, memorable and challenging holes. Prior to its transformation into gently undulating terrain laced with rolling berms and scenic vistas, the land was used for 70 years as a Naval Air Base ... complete with runways and an elevation change of just three feet.

Fazio's sculpting of the course involved the creation of dramatic elevation changes – up to 40 feet in some cases, as well as the addition of mature trees, meandering lakes and flowing streams. 75 acres of prairie grass now flows through the layout.

Each of the par 3s face a different point on the compass, while the par 5s are big and bold with ample landing areas and generous bailout regions. The par 4s range from short and birdieable to long and tough. The long par-5 18th is one of the most picturesque holes on the course with two water features and strategically placed bunkers demanding good course management as you journey to the final green.

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with four wins out of her last four appearances on the LPGA Tour, a feat last achieved by Lorena Ochoa in 2008. Korda's win at the T-Mobile Match Play brought up her 12th LPGA Tour victory.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda’s three-in-three, when he placed second at the Houston Open. This followed back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players. Like Korda, he remains comfortably ahead in the official world golf rankings.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.

Prince's Golf Club, Kent (UK)
