Golf Course Information
The Glen Club, designed by renowned golf course architect Tom Fazio, is a remarkable feat of engineering. For over 70 years, the land was used as a Naval Air Base complete with runways and a total elevation change of three feet. Today, the land has been beautifully transformed into a dynamic terrain with rolling berms, stunning vistas and naturally harmonious transitions.
The routing features dramatic elevation changes up to 40 feet on certain holes mature trees and natural areas, meandering lakes and flowing streams. There are 75 acres of prairie grass flowing naturally throughout the layout.
Each of the spectacular par 3's face a different point on the compass. The par 5's are big and bold yet contain ample driving zones and generous bailout regions. The par 4's range from short and sweet to long and tough. Many elements of a superb Fazio design are here and offer a challenge in many forms, from the classic perched greens undercut by bunkers to the awesome peninsula greens menaced by water.
The finishing 18th hole is one of the most picturesque on the course with two water features and strategically placed bunkers that demand accurate tacking from one safe area to the next. Walking off the 18th green will leave a lasting impression of a spectacular test of skill in an environment that offers an array of memorable golf holes.
