Well it's finally here, Canadians will be pleased, Glen Abbey has finally arrived to the Golf Club. Currently available in White or Black tees. The white tees play exactly as it would if you showed up to the course in September, with your buddies, your cooler, dropped your $250 in the pro shop, and were quickly ushered to the white tees as not every one in your group is a single handicap. Measuring in at 6700 yards you will likely play this real life recreation far better though. The black tees are 1000 yards longer are require thought and strategy to get through the round. the White tees are fun, the black tees will make you sweat, you decide. There are future plans for a 4 day Canadian Open version as well. If you like come back and click like please. 4
There is a cool, misty look to this one as you wind your way through a fairly wooded parkland setting. I'm not extremely familiar with the course, other than the 18th hole, but it did seem perhaps a bit overplanted, or if not overplanted, the trees were just a bit large. The extremely large pine and spruce trees (I think) were particularly awkward looking.

That was the only thing that looked off to me, though, as many holes were awesomely framed by bunkers and hills. Holes 7 and 9 come to mind, and another par 5 on the back 9, maybe around 15 or 16. It's a very cool looking course, and plays quite fairly, if not a bit on the easy side. I anticipate this one holding many a Canadian Open on TGC Tours, and should be played by all.
