The Glen Club

5-star: Fabulous – courses don’t get much better than this.

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.
