    This review is for the West course.

    Don't get me wrong, this is not a quote/unquote "4 star" course. However, it is a very nice muni course that is very playable for all abilities. The course today was in very good shape. The fairways were fairly firm and fast, and were cut to a very reasonable height (not too long, not too short). The front 9 is very flat with many short par 4s. The back 9 is much more hilly, with most holes playing north/south, into or with the prevailing wind. The greens were very consistent speed and receptive wise. I would say they were a little on the softer side, but not too soft. They would receive a well-struck shot nicely, but ran out on those that came in "hot". We played as a 2-some and were behind groups of 4; however, we never really had to wait long between shots. We played in about 3 hours and 45 minutes. The biggest negative was that the restaurant/snack bar was closed for remodeling, so all there was for food was pre-packed sandwiches and snacks. There was a beverage cart on the course, and they came by about every 4-5 holes. All put together, it was very enjoyable!

    it's a fun course. Very walkable and I'm 64 is is much better shape, since the new management. If you buy the PDP card, you can get a huge discount off of greens fees. We play there frequently.

    The front nine is pretty straight forward, and unless your are a senior it's a very short 9 holes. Not well kept, and not worth the prices being charged. The back 9 is significantly better as far as design, and it has the appearance of being slightly better maintained. I feel as if the tall trees on the front 9 prohibit proper turf growth, thus turning the front 9 in a wetter and muddier golf course during off months.

    For what the golf course is, the price is not worth it. It certainly appears to be a Metro cash cow.

    During peak hours in good weather, you'll struggle to find parking as you are in competition with the exercise path users and tennis court users.

    The front desk staff has an extremely high rate of turnover, don't know if that should be blamed on the public they serve, or the management.

    Overall, just a below average vote here.

    Seriously, $20 for 9 holes of golf on the West Side at Glendoveer Golf and Tennis? Are we at Pebble Beach? A struggling economy coupled with a weak golf design that only Portland Hippies could rave about, should equal far lower green fees. Here's an idea, to increase profit, lower the green fees and get more play, rain or shine.

    On the plus side.

    Pretty easy for an average golfer. Pro shop employees very friendly.

    My group of golfing friends are searching for a reason why Metro has oversight of this golf and tennis club. Absolutely zero improvements to the West Side of the golf course. However, millions of dollars spent on a cart barn, patio area, and 3 weeks and counting the dollars on a small dumpster shed in the parking lot. 2 Metro employees, each with a new white pickup, and 3 weeks of construction with the best materiel for a dumpster shed? Metro is clueless, and the new oversight company Course Co, could care less as they are getting paid no matter what. The icing on the cake, an increase of green fees.

    Glendoveer was far superior under the previous management, whoever they were. At least it was a golf course then. Now, it's simply an over-priced amusement park searching for more Metro cash flow.

    It's a tragedy for East County.

    Piece of junk golf course, as one would expect with oversight from Metro. Much better under Hickey. Poorly kept greens and tee boxes. Almost zero golf course oversight with regards to the general public running push carts on to the tee boxex, and or fixing divots and ball marks on the greens.

    Extremely over-priced.
