What a difference a year makes. Apparently lots has changed at Glen Ellen. I have played there for years. Today I was charged an obscene $75 to WALK 18 holes, despite the fact that this is the riding rate. You see they have a "policy" whereby carts are "required" before noon on the weekend. Interestingly they will "allow" walking, however require that a cart is purchased, even if NOT used. This is extremely poor business. Either have a cart policy or don't. To charge for an unused cart is just a vile way to operate. I would have understood having to take a cart.

As for the course, the place has gone downhill. The greens which were once very nice are now average at best. Pace of play was slow, and there was no ranger to push things along. They didn't even fill the water jugs on the course. Again, this was a ridiculous $75 WALKING round. There are lots of much nicer courses in the area that can be played for MUCH less money.

Glen Ellen, you need to just get over yourselves. Way overcharging for a really marginal course will not do anything for your bottom line. I can walk. TWO rounds on many much nicer courses for $75. Hate getting rolled with a ridiculous policy and an attitude.

Nice course. Exceptionally well-maintained for a public course. Quick, true greens, with challenging breaks. Rough is kept quite short. Lots of dog-legs. Playing from the blues is almost like playing a different course. Easy to walk (not hilly, short distances from greens to tee boxes.) Generally not crowded, but plays slow when full (like all public courses).

I find Glen Ellen to be a plain course. However, I do enjoy playing here mostly because of the greens (fast and true). Overall, it is a run of the mill course. The prices are a bit high, and lately pace of play has been aweful (3:30 for 9 holes 3-weeks ago, 5:30 for 18 last week). The front 9 is more difficult than the back 9 mainly because it is more narrow. On the back 9, you can miss your drive and still par the whole by playing another fairway. Also, try to play the back 9 first. This improves the course in my opinion as you end the front with a par 3, then the last 4 holes would be a par 5,4,3,5. Both par 5's are reachable on the front and make the finishing 4 holes very exciting.

Finally, the grass range and large putting green are huge plusses for the course. The putting green has 20-30 yards of rough so you can practice your long chips.

Overall, it worth playing.
