The Sunday brunch is awesome. Great food. Great service. Pleasant atmosphere. The buffet has a good variety and the desserts are to die for.

I haven't played the course (not good enough to spend that much on golf) but I have attended clinics for myself and my daughter. It is well worth it. The professionals are excellent and we learned so much!

The clubhouse affords a great view over the course, and they have a separate patio area for summer functions which can be partially covered. Really great staff and lovely event every year. PLUS I know my family loves golfing here because it's where they host their yearly charity tournament.

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.
