    It was my first time out to Glen Oaks. Great course. Very well maintained. Fairways are like greens which made for excellent lies, and the greens were quick. Really wide fairways on a bunch of holes. Several odd designs. For example, on the par 5 no. 18, the course (local rule) lets you tee up your second shot over a lake if you hit your first over two of the restraining walls (it funnles downhill off the tee) that head down toward the lake. It’s about 250 yards away (from the white tees) to get to the second wall, and another 200 or so to carry the lake. You then have about 120 to the green, now back uphill. On another hole on the backside you basically have to hit it over (or around) an old barn that guards the green on a dogleg left along with a creek that runs through. Really weird, but I kind of like it. Downside of the course today is that it was packed, and made for a very slow round. Couldn’t go anywhere and a lot of walkers in the morning. Was told this is just a normal day on the course. This is a very popular course in the Lincolnton/Maiden area as there are just not a whole lot of options up this way. Clubhouse is ancient and needs some updating, but no big deal. I will be back as it is an excellent value, but I’d probably put it a notch below Verdict Ridge, Red Bridge, Stonebridge, and Edgewater. Seemed a little more like an old school municipal course that is just very well maintained.

Lots of clubs around town will do short game clinics (1-3 hours on one day) that are fairly inexpensive ($30-$100). Stonebridge is one course that offers this. I've taken the one with Fred Bond and got my money's worth out of it. These types of clinics are usually a good...
