    Glade Valley Golf Club

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    18-hole public course; snackand beverage bar; practice green and driving range.
    The pro shop has tees and balls and other golf equipment as well as facilities for repairing clubs and a pro who has inside info on each of the holes.

    $55 is the cost of a round with a cart. The short tee course is 5200 yards and the long tee course is 6500 yards. Both mature and juvenile trees edge the fairways so you do not want to get stuck in the woods. Bermuda grass is left long in the rough and will cost you a stroke to free yourself. Most of the fairways are wide without water hazards but there are plenty of undulations and sand traps and bunkers especially around the green. Playing an errant power shot is going to get you in trouble. Better to "grampa" the ball and go for good placement rather than distance.
    The greens are bent grass and fairly well maintained; they are large and mounded. Hole placements in the slope of the green can cost a three putt.
