    Greens were in good shape, medium size, and had minimal contour. I didn't recognize any flag colours to identify pin position.
    Although there was quite a few weeds, the fairways they were well trimmed. The weeds were no factor in play.
    Yardage markings were slim and only supplied on one side of the fairway.
    Width of fairways was adequate for all holes. Bad shots very find you in serious trouble.
    Tees were a bit on the thin side but were in decent condition. If traffic to the course were to dramatically increase then keeping the tees well maintained may be an issue. Two sets of tees were available.
    The first three and last three holes are outstanding. The middle three holes are rather plain.
    Some beautiful elevation changes are used to the best advantage. Hole #3 can be one tough cookie.
    Bunkers are few and are small and lack character. I'd consider using grass mounding instead.
    Enough trees were left between fairways so there's never an issues of errant balls.
    Scottish Glen is a diamond in the rough. The dream of Bart Bennett took 17 years to build and he tells me there's still lots of work to follow. Bart tells me electricity is on the way.
    An avid golfer will overlook the finer things they come to expect on a golf course and should enjoy this accomplished of Bart.
    Rough is rough. Don't waste your time looking for a ball that enters the long stuff. Rarely a level lie throughout the course. A good test for all level of golfers.
    No cosmetics on the course. Keep your ball in play and move on down the fairway. Natural beauty to be had.
    I paid the owner and talked to the owner. I didn't expect any other frills and I thoroughly enjoyed myself.
    No clubhouse and no beer and from what I saw Scottish Glen is a cash only operation. There isn't even a phone line, just a cell number to call.
    A BBQ was available with a covered picnic table area.
    The parking lot was a grassed area.
    Scottish Glen does not have a course rating and I doubt it ever will.
    Everything about it gives you the feeling that it was homemade; from the scorecard to the signage.
    A few extra arrows for directions would be nice but that, so I was told, is in the plans.
    What a unique experience! Scottish Glen is such a nice change from the glitzy (and expensive) courses that we so often see.
