Gleneagles Golf Club -- Satan's Glen: Hardest Golf Course I've Played
Review by: Bill Young Glen Eagles gets a lot of negative press due to the location (in the hood...there are projects off the 5th hole), and the fact that it's 9 holes only (though you can re-play it from different tees to make it 18). But the main reason everyone hates it, is because it's hard as hell. Every shot is a utility shot...there is something in your line, you're on a hill, the angle is impossible, the distance make carrying difficult, etc., etc., etc. With a slope of 139, this is one of the hardest courses you will ever play. And the "roughness" of it is simply part of it's charm. Let me put it to you this way...Lee Trevino played Glen Eagles years back, while practicing for the US Open at the Olympic. He couldn't break 80...in two rounds. This was in his prime. No, this course is not high-class. Actually, if you need an umbrella in your drink or someone to pick you up at your car so you don't have to carry your bags...don't play Glen Eagles. If you're a sportsman, who wants the ultimate golf challenge...come out to Glen Eagles and try to break 80. When you don't - just head into the bar and have one of many beers on tap and a hot dog. Relax, nobody else broke 80 either.
