Course is in pretty good condition. Greens were a little slow but understand with heat they need to be watered. Gives a good challenge but fair. I have played many times and always in good condition.

Halfway there to being a good day out, hence the rating…

Stuck behind a group of 5 for most of the round.

Course is in good nick and has some challenging holes but let down by the occasional average piece of maintenance such as bunkers full of rocks and stones.

PROS

  • Decently challenging layout
  • Fairways and greens in good condition

Cons

  • Groups of 5 and 6
  • Bunkers with rocks/stones

The fairway condition are much improved since the last time I played here in 2000. Some of the greens are still not good.
Overalll it is a challenging course for me from the white tees.

Played here yesterday and the course (Links) is in great condition. The only downside is the temporary green on the 10th. The fairways are in great shape despite recent heavy rain. The greens seemed a little slow to me but still played true.

Staff were extrememly helpful. From some advise to even changing my spikes before the round. The ground staff even cheered my bunker shot.

  • Fairways
  • Friendly Staff

Cons

Played this course on Saturday 20/10/2012
Played the better 18 holes. Course was real nice, greens were fantastic to putt on. Was far too short from the social tee’s however. Many par 4’s that you can drive.

Unfortunately it took at least 5-6 hours to play the damn course because of slow play. My friend and I were surrounded everywhere by groups of 4 (not in carts) who were ridiculously slow. 90% of those people also didn’t speak English (or at least not well) which made it difficult to communicate with them. Not once did they ever call us up on a par 3, or let us play through. I thought this course had a separate 9 holes that were made for hackers?
I don’t recommend going here despite how well the course was maintained

Played at Glenmore the other day using a’scoopon’ voucher and I’ve gotta say was a little disappointed. Firstly was met by the young tranniee pro in the Proshop he was very friendly and service was great! After this my experience took a bit of a turn. The course was below average was expecting a lot more going off pervious reviews. Included in the scoopon were two drink vouchers to use in the clubhouse this took us 20 mins to redeem as there was no one serving! I had to go and find someone to pour me a beer her excuse was ’oh sorry I didn’t see you there’ I believe this is not good enough and when I explained this to her she rolled her eyes at me. I mean come on!! Going off this experience I don’t think ill be back.

The course was in good condition with decent condition fairways and great greens with a very good roll which worked well with the undulations. I would not recommend playing on the "Original" 9 holes as it seems the greens are not as well maintained and barely rolled at all in comparison to the links and valley 9 holes.

Our day at Glenmore Heritage was excellent. Firstly even though it was a decent drive from the city it was very easy to get to. Secondly the course was in excellent condition. The variety as well as the design made for a interesting day of golf and tested your skills.

I would recommend this course to others.

Remember this is the course review section and not a forum to discuss the course staff and slow play is a problem on every golf course, but there are 27 holes here, so my advice is to play holes 19-27 which are more suited for the beginners and less frequent golfers.

Established in 1927 with some buildings being built over 180 years ago the course has a country club feel to it. Glenmore Heritage Valley Links course (holes 1-18) measures 6399m Par 72 with four par 3s ranging from 153-194m, ten par 4s ranging from 297-420m and four par 5s ranging from 470-589m.

Holes 1-18 has couch fairways and teebeds with medium-sized bentgrass greens whilst holes 19-27 have a mixture of kikuyu and natural grass fairway with tiny-to-small sized bentgrass greens. Every holes on the Links Course is bunkered with a total of 62 bunkers whilst holes 19-27 has 14 bunkers with only the 23rd and 25th being bunkerless. The entire layout is bordered by Mulgoa Creek along its eastern boundary and Mulgoa Road along its western boundary. There are numerous water hazards scattered amongst the layout with up to a dozen lakes and ponds – mostly out of general play for the better golfers.

FRONT NINE (Holes 1-9) highlights include: the 338m slight bend left 2nd with the large fairway bunker along the right shared with the 1st hole and the large pond far right to the wide green guarded by a bunker left; the 545m 4th which plays straight to the gully with a fairway bunker right off the tee and another 3 bunkers both sides about 150m out from the green which is also guarded by another deep gully short and a rear bunker; the 589m slight bend right 6th with a fairway bunker right off the tee with the same red-staked vegetation on the right to avoid on your second with another fairway bunker 200m out on the left to a 30m long and narrow front-sloping green with a bunker short right; the 357m straight 7th with 2 fairway bunkers – right and long left rough off the tee – to a green with 3 bunkers; and the 153m 9th with a teeshot across the pond to a green guarded by hollows left and mounds right and a bunker back right.

The front nine (current holes 1-9) opened in the 1990s to allow holes 19-27 to remain more suited for the beginner golfers. Fairway bunkers can be found on all front nine par 4s and par 5s. The front nine is longer and more challenging than the other outward nine holes. The par 5s at 4th and 6th are the course’s signature holes.

BACK NINE (holes 10-18) highlights include the 2 par 3s: the 160m 12th guarded by 3 bunkers and a pond short left and across the front edge of the 25m long green; and the 157m slightly uphill 18th with a teeshot over a pond to a wide but shallow green guarded by 4 bunkers.

The back nine par 5s are generally weaker than the front nine. The back nine is fairly mundane apart from the par 3s at 12 and 18.

The ‘original nine’ (holes 19-27) measures 2148m Par 33 with four par 3s ranging from 95-180m, four par 4s ranging from 252-345m and the 435m Par 5-21st.

These holes are not very well maintained with longer fairway grass, poor sand in the bunkers and tiny greens. Every hole is quite short for its par.

Highlights include: the 180m 20th with a long iron to a small green guarded by 2 bunkers short; and the 287m slight bend left 26th which is slightly uphill with Mulgoa Road OOB far left and a green guarded by 4 bunkers.

The 27-hole layout offers a variety of holes to challenge the more accomplished golfers and beginners alike. Despite being over 50km from the coastline and with far too many tree plantings to be a links course or even a links-style course, Glenmore Heritage Valley won’t be in any top 100 course ranking, but is amongst the better layouts in Sydney’s greater west.

Played here 12th May 2012 with the $33 weekday green fees and $42 weekend green fees for the Links course, whilst the ‘original nine’ (holes 19-27) is $14 green fees. I haven’t played a course with such discrepancy between the quality and conditioning especially if you play the Links course and then jump on to play the Valley course.

Good value here and a reasonable challenge for all golfers too but Twin Creeks (ranked #63 by Golf Digest March 2012) and Macquarie Links (ranked #99 by Golf Digest March 2012) courses are still the benchmark for golf in Sydney’s greater west.

Let me start by saying I really like this course, and have played there dozens of times. But Saturday (19/05/2012) was nothing short of a disgrace.

SEVENTEEN PLAYERS on the par 3 3rd hole.

SEVENTEEN !! There was a group of six on the green, my group of 3, our other group of three behind, another group of three behind them and a group of two.

After waiting for 20 minutes on the tee I rang the pro-shop who replied with "we have been marshalling groups all morning."

Absolute joke.

To be fair, they did offer us a refund after 9 holes, but we opted to play the old nine instead (which, by the way is actually better than I recalled – although still nothing compared to the ’Links’ course.

Unfortunately it seems certain playing groups at Glenmore are basically able to jump on the first tee whenever they like, in groups of whatever size they like and hit as many balls as they like.

Played last weekend in the Sat comp with a couple of members – Monthly Medal or otherwise known as ’how to make a tough course really brutal’. This parkland style course has plenty of hazards and unlike some courses with ’courtesy hazards’ that are well off the line of play, at Glenmore they’re always in play. I think there was water on pretty much every hole. For high handicappers or those who can’t hit the ball fairly close to where they want: take plenty of spare pills! The proshop must make a mint selling balls. Whilst the strategic challenge of the course is excellent because you have to think about each shot, it does make for a long round, with people searching for balls in almost every group.
That might all sound a bit negative, so the balance is that the course was in great condition, especially the greens. With so much traffic I was expecting the greens to be pock-marked, but they were brilliant – if only I could putt to take advantage of them! Everyone around the club was friendly too.
Playing with others who know the course is a real help as some of the hazards aren’t easy to see from the tee. Plenty of challenging golf out at Glenmore Heritage Valley.

Great course, shame about the management!!
Seriously, how much slower can you get? We played the first 9 holes in about 90mins which was great…until we came across a backlog of 6 4 ball groups in a row. It took us 3 hours to play the next 6 holes, FFS!!!
Got to the 16th and gave up and went home, so did the other 3 groups behind us. Pathetic.

16. artpenty | Rated | 19 Mar 2012 | Add A Review

We were greatly disappointed playing here and would never go back. The course itself is OK — not great but it has interesting holes — and by the way, it is NOT a ’links’ course.
However we teed off last Sunday at 12:06 and by 5 pm, when we quit, we still had three holes to play. Play was so slow, you had to wait before every shot!!
When we stopped at the office to return buggies — and complain — the staff said that this was ’the way it is every weekend’. Obviously they just load the course with golfers to get their money — with no marshall to keep things moving.
The course fee is not inexpensive, and I think they should tell you before they take your money that it will be a 6 hours round!!

17. nikovahes | Rated | 13 Mar 2012 | Add A Review

Fantastic course. At $45 on a Sunday, cart included, it’s also great value.

As a beginner I found the course had a good variety of holes requiring all sorts of different shots. An errant shot was punished by thick, but not impossible, rough, a really errant shot resulted in a lost ball (make sure you have plenty of spares).

This is a course that rewards good play and brings the best out of you. Any faults in your game will be exposed and you really need to play strategically.

Worth the drive. I’ll be back.

Played the championship 18 holes this week for the first time in a while. The course was in very good condition and the layout remains a great test of golf. My member friend tells me that Glenmore has always suffered a little from lack of resources in the area of course maintenance and this combined with heavy and often careless social club usage does sometimes lead to a drop in course quality. I didnt see that on this visit. Greens were smooth and true and fairways well grassed. Some really soggy spots just off a couple of the greens would be my only gripe. If you want to really gauge where your game is at on a good quality testing layout I would highly recommend Glenmore.

PROS

  • Course condition
  • Variety of holes testing all clubs in the bag

I never liked Glemmore in the past because I didn’t know where to place the ball but now it is my 5th time playing and playing with a member has been the best caddie for me :-) I played better this time. I always play from Blue which actually gives correct handicap / course rating from the score perspective.
Two double boggies in front 9 was still due to incorrect amount of fade I put on my drive on 6th and hit the ball straight into water on 9th by having fly getting into my eye at downswing ! other than that just one boggey (3 putting) for the back 9 gives some good news of indication that I can play better as I play more. I had no problem with fairway and green condition – I like fast green. Bunkers now have more sands and so much better than before!
I will play again definately ! $25 including cart on Friday afternoon is something you can’t get elsewhere for sure !! I will try to hit even par next time !!! it is certainly a challanging course !

Some really testing holes on this course. Lots of hazards, bunkers and annoyingly placed trees to make you think about every shot you play. I played about 30 mins after a hail/rainstorm and the course was playing like nothing had happened.
Can’t wait to get back to the course.

22. easyaspie | Rated | 01 Dec 2011 | Add A Review

ill start by saying, i played Glenmore a few weeks ago and WOW i havent seen the course in that bad condition in a long time. Fairways were cut to short, the greens were slow and bare. let me say i didnt see a greenkeeper all day (which i believe is unusual for a monday morning) until i went into the club house and they were having lunch, maybe they should focus more on the course and not there belly’s.

PS Barry, if its true that green staff were laughing at you during your round after bad shots the green keeper in the kubota hat and his mate should be seriously spoken to. to ensure this doesn’t happen again.

In regards to your comments Barry I know the person in question and find it very hard to believe.

What is the difference who is in a pro shop?, would you have complained if the pro shop was full of australians?

Let me start off as my day started off when i played Glenmore park about a month ago. Was greeted by helpful and friendly pro shop staff, procceded to the course, didnt play at my best but had a great day on the challanging layout and long holes. As my round was coming to a close and was standing on the 18th getting ready to play my tee shot, two of the greenstaff pull up in there gator to watch me tee off before they went to the greenkeepers shed, i teed off and flubed it straight into the water, i look over at the greenkeepers to see them laughing at me and my poor golf shot. this really put a sour note to end my round of golf, i was planing on saying something to the shop staff but they had a shop full of koreans so i just left them alone. overall great course but wont be returning after what the green keeper did to me. i dont know who they were but 1 was wearing a black kubota hat. i really hope this hasnt happened to any other golfers out at this course because its really sad and wrong that they treat golfers this way.

The course is good and the buggy service was nice but that’s where it ends. The golf shop staff are non committed and lazy. The round took 5.5 hours to play due to the greed of the club in allowing groups of five players per tee time, how ridiculous! Finally if you allow players of the caliber of 50plus handicap and no golf etiquette in these groups it only spells disaster for others. What a waste of time!

Played this course two days ago and found it challenging. The fairway grass was cut too short to my liking and the group I played with all agreed that the fairways were hard to hit off and as the previous reviewer said it appears that the frost has had a significant impact as there was a lot of brown on the fairways. The difficult greens were in great condition and played fast. The course is in a great location and it was easy to forget how close it is to Penrith. It felt like I was in the middle of nowhere. I will play this course again in the future, but wouldn’t like to play it in the middle of summer, as I could imagine that the heat would be unbearable. It hasn’t warmed up that much yet, but a red belly black snake payed us a visit on the 12th tee box.

Great course for the price. The fairways were a little brown, but that’s to be expected in the middle of winter with couch. The greens were extremely fast and fairly undulating with a really true roll.
This course has the longest par 5 I have ever played at 589 metres uphill and some of the shortest par 4’s around.
Tee to green is generally not a challenge with generous landing areas for drives. The greens seemed to be the biggest factor with regard to scoring. There were not too many easy two putts out there.

I have played the Glenmore Hertitage Golf Course on 2 other occasions, and I guess I was lucky not to have experienced players starting their round on the 10th Tee.After having played the first 9 in good time, this can be annoying. I’m not sure, but I believe players are also able to start on the 10th when playing holes 10 through to 27.

Aside from the above, the course (holes 1-18) is in good condition with quite a lot of water to contend with, some of which is not visible until you’ve hit your shot and move forward.The greens were in excellent condition.

Better management of playing groups would go a long way to enhancing the playability of the course. Groups of five and SIX slowed down the play intolerably.

40. PenguinWoods | Rated | 14 Nov 2010 | Add A Review

Not a bad course. There is a lot of water. The course is not paticually long, however its a course where a good long tee shot comes in handy. The front nine goes through hilly countryside. They claim this is "links" course, but nothing about the course reminded me of a links of a course. The back went through more of a bushy valley. The par threes are pretty tough. The course can be quite punishing, but as long as you stay on the fairway, you should be fine. The greens are quite unpredictable, fast one putt then slow the next.
The pro shop was pretty understocked.
Overall 7/10

We played on a Tuesday and zoomed around in 3.45 hours. It was our first time at GH. The tees had been spiked and the greens were long so I guess they were in recovery mode after their spring freshen up. The greens were very slow due to the long grass but it was a very enjoyable day. Slower groups invited us to play through and pro shop, clubhouse and greenkeeping staff were friendly and helpful.

Both of use hit a long ball and it seemed that that course was not particularly long but we found that the layout demands that you use your head every now and then and leave the driver in the bag.

We look forward to returning when the greens are faster – I reckon give it a week or two.

This course is an interesting test of your golfing ability. It is not Riverside Oaks or Twin Creeks but you are not paying those prices either!

Played on 7 Sept. Greens were cored, which was unfortunate. Started of the back nine. Course layout was decent but looking brown with fairways running firm. Front nine was closed, which was disappointing, which meant we had to play the 3rd nine, which was a very basic & boring par 33 nine. More of a beginners nine. Overall experience was average and unlikely to return.

played links course yesterday off the blue tees, which were a little forward on most holes. A testing course with some long holes, hazards on most holes and OB’s coming into play as well. The layout is good and will improve in coming years when trees grow and greens mature. Greens in great condition and fairways were a pleasure to play off. be prepared for a 5hr + round on weekends though as pro shop allows groups of 5! great value with a cart included.

PROS

  • testing and a quality layout
  • greens and fairways in good condition for a public course

The weather was absolutely perfect for golf today. This course seems to be getting better each time I play there. Greens are looking their best and all fairways are top notch. Only draw is that it continues to be a very populsr links course which always brings a croud, so perpare to have to wait at each tee.

I am a member at Glenmore and would recommend it to anyone. Looking fantastic at present with a lot of bunkers redone. Water on 17 holes (well some should not come into play, but they do!). You must play the 6th hole from the plates. 590 metres, out of bounds on left, dog leg right, hazard all the way up the right hand side with the fairway sloping to the hazard. And once you have negotiated all this, the green is narrow, long and sloped back to front with a step.

I play here quite a bit but am a member of a Sydney private golf club. This course is absolutely fabulous. I wish the layout was at my club. I recommend this course to everyone I meet and no one has ever been disappointed. $29 on comp days (Thursdays) so do yourself a huge favour and post your review.

your exactly right muzza, the changes they are making are going to look amazing when all the turf grabs and greens up. there are alot of hard holes even the par 3s from the championships tees, they average about 170 and over.

and fullback your full of sh*t cause i played there about a month ago and thats the best ive seen the course in about 5 or 6 years.

im not sure why people slag of golf courses when they have a bad game, i have played many times at glenmore heritage recently some good games some bad but everytime the course keeps improving, but alas my game not.living in the penrith area we are spoilt for golf courses,but my choice always is glenmore heritage,great layout, challenging holes and always well turned out. looking forward to play again soon as who ever is running the course is making some great changes and major refurbishments to the course. see you again soon

Played today from the whites on the Links 18 (1 to 18), and even from there it’s still a reasonably lengthy and challenging course (5941m). The layout means that the longer irons or hybrids will get a bit of work off the tee to ensure good positioning for your second shots.

Fairways were a little dry looking, but the greens were pleasant looking and true, if not a little soft underfoot after probably being watered moderately over the morning. With a couple of pin positions less than 3 or 4 paces off the front, this meant that pins could be attacked on the shorter par 4s. Tightly packed fairway bunkers made approach shots a bit easier, however there were new traps around a couple of the greens where the sand looked a bit softer, which would make sand saves a little less daunting.

Just by looking at 19-27, I could tell that I made the right decision to spend a few $ more and play 1-18. Not many people on course today, so I went around in just under 4 hours with a mate. Well worth the visit IMO.

Not a bad course, however is not worth the money for the front 18 or back 18 as this 27 hole course has not had any money spent on the back 9.
I also find it hard to get onto this course and find that it is a course were you get rushed & the people are not nice
I still play here due to it being close to home

We played here yesterday as a precursor to our social club event next week, and really enjoyed the layout and the golf in general. It was a bit slow (5 1/2 hours) but it was the group in front of us that was the problem. We had to play off the whites which shortened the course especially the par 5’s which were reached in two most times!! The index had us a little stumped as the harder holes by index seemed to play relatively easier then some others (according to us anyway)

The fairways were in great knick, and the greens were true and slick, while still rewarding a well struck approach. All in all a rewarding day out and very cheap. Bring on the Carl Spackler Invitational, I’m ready to win and the boys will enjoy this course, as it suits all golfers.

I played here today and thoroughly enjoyed it. I played from the blues and it was a real test and a course that you have to think on. It starts off with an easy par 4 but it doesnt take long to get tougher. The Par 5’s are the best with all but 1 true par 5’s where you need to think and their length makes them unreachable in 2. All but 1 of the par 3’s require a water carry which always sorts out the players that can carry the ball rather then those that bump and run long irons. The greens are large and very undulating. I think I had one straight putt all day. The fairways were in good nick considering all of the rain and the greens held well and ran true. It is a thinkers course which beats most of the courses around the area which involve bombing a driver and having a 9 or wedge to most of the par 4’s. I also played holes 19-27 which were much easier and are perfect for the learning golfer. These fairways and greens were also of a good standard. If you want a good test though I highly recommend the first 18 holes to anyone. It was only $30 whcih is more than reasonable for what you get. I will be back.

Played with a social club today. Day was beautiful and the course was magic. Greens are fast, difficult to read and unforgiving and will truely test your golf. Great value.

62. johng | Rated | 29 Mar 2008 | Add A Review

Tough course. Very long and unforgiving in some places. 3 out of 4 par 3’s are over water and the one that isn’t is long. Off the back plates it is a good test of golf and one of the toughest in the west.

Fairways are in good nick as are the greens which do provide some interesting contours. Good value with a cart and even better value in the thursday open comp.

Best hole is the Par 3 9th which boasts a full water carry. Many a ball has found the water there (including mine).

3.5 out of 5

I played on saturday and its very tough in winter around the greens. $30.00 in the comp on saturday is reasonable and i have to say the pro shop is improving. Started at 10.50 ish and walked in at 4.45 – wasn’;t impressed as to why it took so long to play 18 hours, although when you hear that someone had a 23 on a par 3 ina stroke round you realise why. won’t be playing the medal again.

Played the medal day here on saturday morning, Easter long weekend, when rain was pouring down in Sydney City, Mulgoa was beautifully dry and cool with a little breeze. What a find! I had never heard of this place before. It ranks up there, I would say similar to Kogarah for features but much more tight and more water hazards and more undualted. Not flat at all.

Tight course where it is true that you need to think of shot placement from nearly every tee, especially playing from the back tees.

Greens are beautifuly undulating for the money you pay I expected flat greens and council-like features, but this place delivers the goods. The greens however were quite shabby and I’m hoping they are at the end of the season and by the looks of it, works had alreadyt commenced on some of the greens. Not the worst greens mind you, just need to be cored.

Overall, Im very impressed. Will be back for sure. It is only 40 minutes from CBD on a early saturday morning run.

we played here early, before the comp a few weeks back.

after some shennanigans in the pro shop, found holes 10-18 to be a great challenger, sadly, the original 9, 19-27 are awful.

no distance markers, short, one hole under construction, a stark comparison to the previous 9.

make sure you pay the additional $10 to play the good 18.

greens superb.

Good comeback by " THE GOLF PRO " at Glenmore. If you think the service is good there pat yourself on the back. I stand by my review of the back nine minefield and we will enjoy paying the extra for a challenging course and respectful staff.

67. thefreeloaders | Rated | 18 Aug 2006 | Add A Review

our social club play glenmore regularly and i have to say are treated well the valley course 10-27 consists of the back 9 of the links and the old 9 of the original course which to be fair is not of the same standard this is reflected in the cost $29 as opposed to $38 for the full links course 1-18 on weekends a course which i beleive is 2nd to none in this area, there is a saying , you get what you pay for , so go and play camden lakeside pay $90 on the weekend but REMEMBER leave your trackpants at home

68. shakeyone | Rated | 24 Jul 2006 | Add A Review

Where do I start ?

PRO SHOP - Our social club ventured to this course recently and were greeted by the most uptight & rude "head pro" (as he kept repeating). Being a rainy day he informed me that I couldnt wear those "tracksuit pants" . This would be fair enough if they were tracksuit pants but they were not ! They were wet weather pants bought from Drummond golf only last week.He wouldnt budge and told me I would have to buy one of their rain suits ($60) They only had XXL and were way too big with the bottoms dragging on the ground, he saw this and with a smile said "make sure you keep them on all round"

Suffice to say I was not in the right frame of mind to play a good round of golf but thought forget about him and just enjoy the day as the sun had come out.

GOLF COURSE - We are a long running social club which plays all number of courses and this would rate as one of the most overated courses we play(10th to 27th). Social clubs start off the 10th, with the first couple of holes in good condition and good variety. The same cant be said for the next holes 13th, 14th 15th.

Good to see some water to contend with around this nine holes and some well placed bunkers in good condition.

18th hole is a tricky little par 3 uphill.

Have to say the half way shop is a very good pit stop with good variety of tucker.

NOW, The next nine holes (19th to 27th) Firstly the positives...THERE ARE NONE !! No creativity, no grass, no distance markers, no effort.We all know why... its only for the social players ! Who of course pay their money to play a good 18 holes. These holes should not be played on so SOCIAL PLAYERS BEWARE. Your better off going somewhere of better quality where once your hard earned money is paid you get a consistant state of play. I suggest Camden Lakeside, Riverside Oaks and even Massey Park and North Ryde rank as a better experience than this place. This tirade sounds harsh but they bring it on themselves with an arrogant Pro and poor service to social players (You shouldnt need to be a member to be treated equally if you have paid your $).

Camden Lakeside here we come !

Payed this course from the plates and was very impressed.You had to think your way around not just blaze driver on each hole. (4's & 5's) The greens were super, although some spot on greens could cause nightmares. Fairways, greens even hazards were perfectly maintained.

Not sure about being the best in the west just yet but most certainly has the potential.

The greens were so pure ie:Fast, no bouncing. Pick your spot, stoke it over the spot & bang it was in.

Over all a very good track.

Open Comps every thursday at a cheap price. Great quality course. When played from the back markers it is a true test of golf. About 5 mins from the M4 - near Penrith, definately the best in the west.

Glenmore is now the premium layout in the outer west of sydney. It has long been the best design of any course in the west and in recent times the condition of the course has improved greatly. A great test where every club in the bag will be required. Testing greens and trouble on every hole. Play well at Glenmore on the championship 18 and you can play well anywhere.

I played this course yesterday and to me, it compares very favourably with Camden Lakeside and Macquarie Links but longer.

The back tees were in play (last Thurs. of each month) and for $15...the best value anywhere bar none.

Apart from the 1st which is soft, all the other holes with their doglegs and water hazards are just great. Less than 1 hour from Sydney, you MUST get there.

If they ever get the course in good conditon this will be a good course, the new 9 holes are much better than the old ones and if they bring the rest of the course up to par it will be well worth the drive.

Don't be fooled by the location of this golf course. And despite the effects of past dry seasons, this is a very good course. It has something for every golfer!

Fairways are spacious, especially good for those who like to tee off with a driver on every par 4 or 5 they come across. The length of the course will ensure you'll get a descent workout despite the overall flatness of it all.

A word of warning though, especially when playing during the hotter months. Don't be tempted to want to retrieve your ball (however expensive) if you've hit it deep into the marsh containing bushes. There may be a red-belly black snake or similar waiting for you!

I found playing on windier days made it less straight forward and at times more enjoyable.

This golf course is truly worth a look at. It's got a good mixture of challenging holes and some par 3's require accuracy. It's not Huntingdale, but it will do for most players just wanting to get out there.

This course is the same one as the GLenmore Country Club, it has just changed names. It is actually 27 holes with main 18 being links style.

79. corndog | Rated | 19 Aug 2003 | Add A Review

I am not a particularly seasoned golfer, not having played a lot of exceptional courses, however I can say that this course is good and getting better.

If you had of asked me a year ago I could have come up with a list cons for Glenmore, but today, there are few, and they are far outweighed by the pros.

Glenmore is a 27 hole course, with the main 18 being a par 72 links design, with a rating a little higher, and can be very challenging, especially from the blue markers.

As mentioned in previous reviews about Glenmore, it has some very long, tough par 5's. This is especially true with the 4th and the 6th holes.

Most of the fairways are fairly forgiving, but this course comes into it's own around the greens, most of which don't have a lot of spare real estate around them.

I do also agree with previous reviews, that the back nine is somewhat up and back again, but it is challenging enough to forget this.

Glenmore is set in a valley, about 5 mins south of Penrith and the setting is quite spectacular.

I have played a few courses both in Sydney and throughout New South Wales, but I don't think I have felt as comfortable playing any of them as I do playing Glenmore. Even when I play bad golf, which is more often then not, unfortunately, I still enjoy the walk around Glenmore. And for full membership of $675 and weekday of $440 (which is what I have), without a joining fee at present, it can't be beat for value.

With the ongoing improvements, including work on bunkers, drainage and the greens, this course is set to become exceptional.

Very much worth a round and once you've been here you might even want to stay, if you like a bit of a challenge.

Readers should be aware that this is a winter course review, and my opinion may be different in other weather conditions.

Nevertheless, the condition of the fairways at the moment takes a full ball away from the course rating. The grass cover was thin at best, and soggy in places where cart traffic seems to have taken it's toll.

Design-wise, this course has aspirations to belonging on the top shelf. The front nine in particular is links style, with humps and hollows and fairway bunkers featuring strongly. The par 5's on the front nine are very strong, at 530m plus other off-fairway challenges, but the back nine 5's are weak.

Thankfully, they have eliminated the hazard in front of the 4th green, making it a much fairer hole (its not an 'island' green any more) but the 9th green still has a camel's hump in the middle and the 14th still has a blind hazard at the 230m mark. There is also a sense of 'up and back' about the back nine that might irritate those who like variety.

Having said all that, the greens were very good and the bunkers beautifully maintained.

This course should be better than it is at present. Wait until someone tells you that it's in good condition, then it will be the best round for under $30 in Sydney.

As a member I might be biased but I believe with continued improvment in our courses condition in recent times this course could slip into the top 100 in Aus some time in the future.

From the moment you step into the historic proshop - a converted barn which must be about 150 years old you sense you are playing somewhere special.

The view over the 1st and second holes at any time of the day stirs your senses.

The first is an easy enough a short par 4 uphill to an open green.

The second is a well designed hole with a slight dogleg to the left around a overhanging gumtree and a left to right cambered fairway framed by three bunkers on the left and a huge bunker on the right. The second shot must avoid water on the right and a brook running from beyond the green. A pretty hole.

Thats enough information to wet your appetite.

Glenmore has open days on Thursday with TV's & Video's as prizes on on Thursay each month.

Glenmore has an ACR of 74 which suggests the difficulty here, but a game off the more forward tee's shouldn't provide too many worries for an 18 marker.

All I all, I'm proud to be a member here and always get favourable reviews from visiting players.

Most of the holes run back & forth in the same direction, on what is a poorly routed, poorly designed course by Mr Hak Kil Lee.

The greens have couch & paspalm storks all over them which not only makes putting a lottery, but if your approach shot pitches on one of these the ball will unfairly bounce over the back compared to the rest of the green that palys quite soft. All the greens seem to have this problem.

There are some challenging holes, although the course for the most part is quite open, so if you don't mind poor conditioning you may enjoy yourself.

Be careful of the hidden water hazards on the back.

83. andrew14966 | Rated | 27 Dec 2002 | Add A Review

Fairly open, but with more mounds than you can poke a stick at. A couple of the par 5's are long & quite difficult if you're not thinking.

Another great west Sydney course. Well worth a visit.

84. Mark Barden | Rated | 31 Oct 2002 | Add A Review

From the Blue tees this course can be a real test especially on the back 9 where water comes into play unseen from the tee on a couple of holes namely 14, 16 and 17.

The front 9 begins meekly enough however the Par 5 4th (545m) requires a long iron lay-up and then a precise 3rd shot to a green surrounded by a hazard.

The par 5 6th is a monster (560m) which generally plays into a cross headwind. The green is long and narrow requiring an accurate 3rd shot.

The Par 3 9th (174m) requires a tee shot that needs to carry the large lake in front of the green.

The back 9 has many dog-leg holes where accuracy from the tee is essential, particularly the Par 4 14th (407m) where a long mid iron is required for your 2nd shot.

The Par 3 18th is a great finishing hole as it is uphill and over a large pond.

The greens have improved markedly over the last couple of months and are now getting back to the glassy greens that prevailed when the new "Links" course opened several years ago.
