Dramatic holes, always in great condition with greens you will love to putt on. Really important the first time you are there, to play a tee box or two forward from where you always do. Take advantage of their second play option and then go to the back tees --- you will really see this course delivers fun and exciting... More

There is a variety of accommodations to suit everyone's needs, the setting is right on the water and you will not find more beautiful views. There is an 18 hole championship golf course just across the road from the hotel that is as good and as pretty as you will find in North America.I have been coming here for the... More

We came here for a quick lunch - they serve the best hand cut fries I have ever had....and the smoked meat sandwich on the pretzel bun was very good as well.

Try to play this course at least once/year. It is challenging but fair, wonderfully maintained, and laid out in a scenic area along the St Lawrence River. Staff is friendly, nice pro shop, and the restaurant has an accommodating wait staff and good pub fare.

Stayed and played and had a great time. Tough and challenging but fair. Great views, very nicely designed given how it had to be carved out of the meandering terrain. Sand was hard and crusty probably from recent watering. Worth the drive nice place to stay and play. Friendly staff.

Just returned from a two day golf outing at the Glen House Resort and Smugglers Glen Golf course. I have played better groomed courses but the elevation changes, views, natural terrain cannot be beat. The greens and fairways are bent grass and both in good shape, however the greens are thick and bouncy, not receiving a ball well and putted... More

Tried the course out two days in a row. I would have to say that it is challenging for a beginner like myself, but fun none the less. The staff was friendly and helpful. Although hard to tell in April, I am sure this course is spectacular in the summer.
