Glenview Park Golf Club

  43 Reviews

Let me preface with this: I grew up playing summer youth golf at Glenview Park Golf Club. I have a lot of good memories from playing this course and when my future brother in-law asked me to play here I had to laugh because many years ago, GPGC was known for being a so-so public course- torn up greens, terrible bunkers, and spotty fairways. I agreed to play for the nostalgia, if anything else.

But I learned quickly GPGC had a recent major course renovation and I have to say it was such a joy to play. To see a course transformed and much improved but still keep the same feel and shots that I remember as a kid was a wonderful feeling. The fairways and greens were in good shape and rolled true, trees were removed and the course felt more open and appealing. The best part was GPGC still remains an affordable option, and you get your money’s worth here if you find a good GolfNow deal. So glad to play this course again; I’ll definitely be coming back, and not just for nostalgia.

He would play this course again.

My 3 brothers and I play here every memorial day morning and have great time the course is in great shape the greens are firm and fast and fair. Really only complaint I have is I wish there would be a couple more yardage markers.

Honestly I had high expectations with this course having one of the top ratings in the Chicagoland area. The course was well kept, and yeah the staff and amenities were fine.

But, the most important thing is that the course is small. The holes are short. I believe there were 5 par 4's in a row on the back 9, all about 380 yards. Boring. Only 2 par 5's. I would not recommend this course to anyone who enjoys challenging or fun course layouts.

Played my first round here yesterday after reading positive reviews of the renovation a couple years ago. Never had ever considered playin here previously. Really looks more like a standard country club layout/vibe/clubhouse than typical north shore muni. Fairways & greens in great shape with consistent rough. I played as a single and they were very accommodating, linked up with a good group of older regulars. Played quick round because It started raining so had course to myself. Decent challenge with mix of holes but quite a few short ones where 5 wood off the tee Is sufficient. Definitely will be back. Staff was great.

He would play this course again.
