General Comments:

After many years of wanting to play Glen Abbey, I was afforded the opportunity and must say I was rather disappointed.

First off, I didn't pay the overpriced green fee of C$240! If I had, I would have been very upset. Glen Abbey is a very nice course that does not offer enough bang-for-the-buck. There is too much competition in the Greater Toronto Area that provide far better value.

In terms of the course itself, I was surprised that I didn't find it a particularly challenging course off the tees. The fairways are very generous and because I played early in the season, the rough didn't offer much of a defense. The real difficulty lies with the approach shot. Nicklaus placed many green side bunkers strategically and if the pins are in the right (or is that 'wrong') placement - look out!

Overall, I am glad I played the course at least once. I won't be rushing back anytime soon - unless someone else is paying.

One last thing: do yourself a favour and drop a ball in the fairway bunker on 18 that Tiger hit the 218 yard 6 iron during the Canadian Open. What a phenomenal shot! I did. Took one look and picked my ball right back up.

Best Hole: #11
Why: Elevated Tee with very tough approach shot.

Overall rating : Good

Overall value: Way Overpriced
