The Resort at Glade Springs boasts three 18-hole layouts, the latest of which, the Woodhaven course, was completed in 2010. Fairways on this course are routed across an undulating, forested landscape, making it the toughest of the three tracks.
The Glade Springs resort was established in the early 1970s, with George Cobb setting out the initial 18-hole course on the property. Thirty years later, Brian Ault and Tom Clark created the Stonehaven course and the same architects returned a decade later to fashion the eighteen holes of the Woodhaven.
In The American Golf Resort Guide author Daniel Wexler writes: “Playing out of a separate clubhouse, the Woodhaven course lies across the Glade Creek Gorge from the Cobb. Utilizing more undulating terrain, it is arguably the resort’s most engaging track and, for most, its toughest.
The front nine is the centerpiece here, offering the 493-yard par five 4th (played to a green tucked behind a hillside) and the sharply downhill 211-yard 5th before approaching the gorge for a closing trio that includes the 200-yard 7th (benched spectacularly into a slope above the chasm) and the 589-yard pond-guarded 9th.
The much longer back nine opens with the 541-yard split-fairway 10th and closes with the uphill 557-yard 18th , with the lower-lying holes in between being led by the 169-yard 12th (played across rough country, with the gorge lingering left) and the 506-yard 13th, a brutal uphill par four.”
