Gleneagle Golf Club Clubhouse

Clubhouse and Amenities – Rating 5.66

The clubhouse for Gleneagle Golf Club – Hudsonville, Mi, Is small but decent. The carts are excellent though the cart paths could use some work. The available parking, bag drop, and service all scored very high. The clubhouse itself and the amenities offered are average but solid. Where it lacks is in what is offered with food, drinks, apparel and equipment. There is little in food to offer, the drinks selection is wider than the food, but still below average. There is little offered in apparel and less in equipment. We at Michigan Golf Matrix felt this a bit odd, since the actual course was one of the most consistent plays we have seen.
