    Glengarry Golf and Country Club is nestled among rolling hills and routed through both mature and young trees. The Garry and Delisle Rivers wind their way through the property, coming into play on many holes.
    The most challenging hole is the par four, fifteenth hole. At 467 from the blues, this is truly a beast. A person should keep their drive down the left side of the fairway to provide a better angle for your long second shot to a kidney shape green. The second shot is uphill to a green surrounded by trees.

    Average sized greens with deceptive speed. The cut of the grass looks long but they sure fooled me.
    The pin position was noted by flag colour.
    A couple of pin placements caused me problems. I had one very difficult putt that went over a ridge with the hole on the downward slope.
    The fairways were good but some areas the grass was a bit thin. Some fairways seemed to be a bit narrow.
    Excellent yardage marking ranging from 100 to 250 yards at 50 yard intervals. The 150 yard marker was identified in the center and both sides of the fairway. Top notch. Stakes and plates were available for all.
    Varying tee quality. Some good, some requiring work.
    There was signage at every hole but some not located in the best location. Signage for #4 was well away from the white tee.
    Glengarry has some minor elevation changes. However, the course is still very walkable.
    The bunkers rarely have lips so getting out isn't quite so tough.
    I sprayed a few balls around during play and still managed to find them.
    Pricing at Glengarry was very fair for the quality of course. A comparable course around a city would be the same price but without cart. I'll be back!
    Many holes are straight ahead. Hole #11 is particularly tough as it requires a well positioned tee shot then an uphill approach to the green.
    On a few holes you can shorten the distance to the green by cutting corners with little penalty even if you do end up in the rough.
    Glengarry was clean and well manicured. Surprisingly, the par 3s were some of the less impressive holes.
    A few elevated tees made you feel like you could hit it a mile.
    We were rather disappointed in not seeing a beverage cart. In fact, there seems to be a shortage of beverage carts in many of the courses we've played this season.
    The gentleman in the pro shop was efficient and courteous.
    The pro shop is nicely stocked and had very fair pricing for both clothing and equipment.
    The clubhouse was unremarkable.
    There were a couple of washrooms on course but not at the best hole locations.
    Rules on course don't appear to be enforced as proper golf attire was not worn ahead of us and the threesome only had two sets of clubs.
    Directions and route of the course was easy to follow.
    I hit an extra ball out of a bunker on a par 3 because I had the wrong club and I got an earful from the four seniors behind me even though I did not play the hole out. The course played slow and we had to wait on many holes. The comments by the seniors made me glad I wasn't a member.
