Fairly nice public course but not good drainage after rain. Seems like it is always cart path only because of it. Cost is on the high side for public course in the area.

I wish this course wasn't 2 min from my house because I would never play it. Unfortunately the convenience factor brings me back. First there is no potable water on the course. How hard is it to put a few jugs of water out there?...More

Even with the severe drought that WNY has experienced in summer of 2016, Glen Oak is well watered, greens and tee boxes well tended and rough proves a challenge. Offers Yellow tees for about a 6000 yd experience along with tips , whites and reds....More

Definitely not a beginner course. Challenging but you can score on most holes. Fairways are winding with pretty tricky greens but not insane. Houses in play for 6 of the holes. Great greenside bunkers. Gps on the carts helps tremendously.

The course offers a good assortment of challenges for golfers of all skill levels. Water is in play for several holes. The placement of sand traps is well designed.

Enjoy this golf course as being well maintained over the season. Staff is courteous. Prices are reasonable for a course of this type. Greens are great, not too crazy. Fairways are pretty wide open with some trees enroute thru the 18 holes. And, the rough...More

Winding through houses and condos, the course is a stiff 18 hole challenge from any of the sets of tees. This is not a course for a beginner. The fairways are well maintained, the greens are undulating and kept at a good speed. The golf...More

Well managed, beautiful shape and a challenging course. Easy to make tee times on line, reasonable green fees and a nice bar for the 19th hole refreshment

This course offered our group quite a challenge. Depending upon the tees you select to play from, the course can be very long and very challenging. We found it to be well kept, even considering the amount of rain that had fallen in the previous...More
