Had Sunday Brunch on November 8th at the Glen Abbey Golf Club House for my birthday. Great selection at salad bar, seafood bar, hot table, omelette station, and dessert table. Great and delicious brunch. Beautiful view of golf course. Will definitely return. Not sure however how someone in a wheel chair would get into the club house? Quite a few... More

Don't get me wrong... certainly I will play Glen Abbey again(once per year) but after playing it... I think its over rated (or maybe I've been spoiled too much). The front 9 is wide open with really nothing special, no scenery, etc. This is not Banff Springs, or Fairmont Whistler courses... or maybe it is without the scenery? I don't... More

Went as a spectator to Canadian Open and was truly impressed. The course was immaculate (as always) and very easy to navigate. Great views for all the holes and easy walking. Managed a few autographs at 18, players were appreciative of the large crowds. Lots of food and drink at reasonable cost, very enjoyable day. Took the shuttle service and... More

We went as spectators to watch The Canadian Open Golf event last Thursday. The course was in beautiful condition and the place is immaculate. The daily program shows you the times for the individual golf pairings and where they start either front nine or back nine. You can walk the course or sit at a hole to watch a lot... More

It's not often you get the opportunity to play a gem of a course like Glen Abbey. The hospitality was great and the pace of play was good. It was a ridiculously hot day but the beverage cart came around enough to keep us hydrated. I will definitely jump at the opportunity to play it again.

From the moment we drove into the course to the moment we left the service was incredible. Not to mention the beautiful and challenging golf course. Everyone was pleasant and professional. Greeted at the car and bags were taken to the clubhouse. Check in was quick and friendly. Unlimited balls for driving range to warm up. Starter was friendly and... More

I had the privilege of playing at the Glen Abbey for a charity event. It was also my first time playing golf, the staff was very friendly and helpful. The loaner clubs were "excellent" according to my foursome teammates and the carts were powerful, although due to the rain couldn't be driven on the grass. The views were beautiful, specifically...

Overall the event was great. Even parking at the GO station and been transported to Glen Abbey. However once the event ended getting back to your car was a nightmare. People were waiting at Go station signs to return to the parking lot and buses were just stopping anywhere to pick people up. It was total disorganized. Volunteers were saying... More

Glen Abbey is a great golf course, designed Jack Nicklaus in 1976. The Glen Abbey golf course is one of Canada's most famous golf courses and located in Oakville, Ontario. The weather was perfect and it was a nice warm day with a breeze, perfect for golfing and taking photo's. I had the opportunity to take photos for the Canadian... More

went for a company outing - the course as it is being prepared for the upcoming tournament, was in great shape even with the t boxes getting extra wear since some t's were closed. good views of the course and wide open in most places so you will not get into a lot of trouble of course unless you cannot...
