Played here on Saturday of labour day weekend and all I can say is that Im glad we didn't pay full price for this course. We ended up winning a foursome here from a silent auction at a tournament in Huntsville (Grandview Golf Club which is way better than the abbey). I think full price on weekend is like 265$,... More

I finally played the Abbey after watching a number of Canadian Opens at the Abbey in the 80's and 90's. I must say I was disappointed and the course did not live up to the hype. For the most part the course was in good condition and well maintained. except for the bunkers. The sand was brutal and they hadn't... More

If Glenn Abbey is going to host the 2015 Cdn Open they have a lot of work to do. Everything from the practice area to the greens to the fairways are in poor condition. Seems that in the last 5 years since I was there its really turned into an average course. If not for the valley holes it would... More

For a course that has hosted the Canadian Open I am disappointed that this course is just a little too straightforward. That is just my opinion but there are many other courses I prefer.

Can't believe how this course has deteriorated over the years since under Clublink control. Granted the greens had been top-dressed but they still were in horrible condition. Fairways were in brutal condition. I played this course during its heyday in the 90's and it was a treat at that time. As a previous reviewer said, "the jewel has been turned... More

Dunno how my previous post ended up giving only a 2 star rating. I meant for it to be a 4 star. I am done. The end.

I recently received an invitation from a friend to join his group in an informal tournament at Oakvilles Glen Abbey Golf Club and of course, I JUMPED at the chance to play the Abbey, Crown Jewel in Canada's Golf crown and the 'Home of the Canadian Open'. I had played Glen Abbey many times in the 1990's and early 2000's... More
