First off this course is more than just about golf for the young men at the Glen Mills School. The Glen Mills School was the nation's first reform school for boys. The course is a recent addition as a means to both raise revenue and teach job skills to the students in golf course management and maintenance. Some of the students have moved on to college programs in golf course management. The boys here learn not just job skills but life skills.
At $105 for a Sunday tee time with cart and range balls, this was the most expensive round of golf I have ever played but this was also the hardest and best kept course that I have ever played. It was well worth it. The greens were fast and rolled true. They were extremely difficult which put a premium on an accurate approach shot. The fairways are tight and require accurate tee shots.
All in all a great experience!
This is a really good and challenging course, one in which you need to hit your shots straight. The myriads of bunkers, deep rough, scattered boulders, and well placed trees, narrow fairways, and several blind tee placements, will keep your head on your game. And the greens - lots of undulation and unpredictable speeds throughout the course. They also have a very friendly and helpful staff. The $79 green fee is reasonable for a public course of this scale and shape. The only negative I found is that you'll need a cart to conquer the hilly landscape, but it's not a cart friendly course as you won't be able to gain close access to lots of fairways and greens from the concrete cart paths, so you'll wind up doing a fair amount of walking and climbing anyway. Having all that said, tee it up and treat yourself to a great round.
We paly at least once a year. Cost is $79; howver, on Teusdays it is Ladies day-$55 for girls inc lunch. Great course. Well maintained and just spectcualr views. Fun
Wonderful course. Quite challenging unless you're scratch or low handicap, but great course layout and immaculate. If you're in the area, check it out.
I don't have one bad thing to say about this place. Absolutely beautiful and very well maintained. I can't even really complain at the cost.
