Played this course many times but only because you can purchase 20 dollar vouchers a couple times a year. I would never pay there standard 40 something price. Have definitely seen a drop of in course maintenance. Can’t remember the last time I’ve seen an uncompacted raked bunker. We generally just take the ball out as their usually not even playable. On the positive side it’s a decent enough layout that keeps you interested. Have had a couple instances where we were playing at the same time outings were taking place and were forced to listen to boom boxes all the way around the course by your typical 20 somethings who seemed to think it was appropriate to mix a rock concert and Golf. My complaints fell on deaf ears by both the ranger and those in the clubhouse. In a nutshell I wouldn’t be playing here without a voucher.

1- Greens were extremely slow and leaves had not been removed from most of the fairways.
2- There were two 4-some ahead of us. After each shot, they would argue about whose ball it was and wasted at least 5 to 10 minutes after each shot.
3- despite complaining about this to the staff, no one asked these guys to move along faster and to respect other golfers behind them.
4- A staff with mower took the flag out of one of the holes and started mowing the green as we waited for him for about six minutes. He did not care!

For the price on golf now it is a good track that gets better with when it is under $20-. Paired up on Number one with a couple of guys in there late eighties and another gentleman. One guy was walking, the oldest one and he was about 89. Hit the ball off the box 20 yards. The starter was my salvation along with the other single. He came up to the box and told to hit and leave the old guys behind. Thanks guy.

This course gives the players that don't play often a chance at shooting a good round because of how open it is. Very few difficult holes.

Unfortunately, we were unable to play all 18 holes because the starter sent us to the back 9 first and forgot a golf outing was coming in. There was also a huge hole on the 9th hole green. Overall the course was just fair.

Course was in good shape, pace of play was actually pretty good despite being busy. problem was at check in. It took 20 minutes and about 15 people were lined up. I had prepaid and only needed cart key which they charge a $1 deposit. They need to get rid of that policy since it slows things down. Also, they need to have more than one person available to check people in. I blame the manager who needs to have a better handle on the process. Enjoyed the group I was paired up with and value for the money is incredible.

I'd play here more often if I could get the round in under 5 hours. The course is nice with some interesting holes, some challenges and some opportunities to score. There's no driving range and the practice green is located a long way from the first tee or the club house. Part of the slowdown comes from the slow service in the grill at the turn.

Good course. 2 groups were really slow and weren't letting people go in front of them. Had to skip a hole on the back and finished 4 holes then can back. They were just teeing off on the next hole.

Course was nice though. I will go again

Let me say, I have heard the course was challenging with long Par 3's, and in good shape. All of that was true, now let's get to the rest.

Pros: Challenging holes, good condition overall, fair price.

Cons: PACE OF PLAY. If you can't get out on a Friday before 8 a.m., then forget it. There are so many hacks out here that it is unbearable. We think that a guy going down the 2nd hole hit my ball, Didn't see a ranger doing their job until hole 13 when I think they realized how SLOW it was going. Then, the ranger challenged us and stated "why are you playing the blacks?" To my response "Because, the blacks are only 6,082, which isn't that long." Myself and one of the other 4 people I was paired with were pretty good golfers, the other two were pretty mediocre. But us 4 were standing around waiting on the twosome in front of us, AND the threesome in front of them. We were not the problem.

After 17 holes and 4 hours and 20 minutes later, I drove in, skipping 18. Almost a 5 hour round on a Friday morning is unacceptable. May not be returning.

Don't know what public courses you are playing that are less than 4 hrs 20 mins for 17 holes?
All public courses have hacks, you get what you pay for. The cheaper the course the bigger the hacks.

Always good to play Glen Oaks because the rates are always Great. It just seems that all 3 rounds I played here have been in the rain or after heavy rain. Only complaint I ever had was back to back par 3's, 16-17. Real estate constraints. But it is still a fun course.

Course condition was very good and not so easy if you play from back tee.
The only frustrated thing was that I took 4.5 hours for 18 holes round.
1 suggestion. The actual yardage of Par 3 hole was slightly different from indication, so actual yardage on somewhere of tee ground would be helpful.
