HISTORY OF "THE HOLLOW"

LITTLE SLEEPY - Founded in 1962 by Dr. Marshall "Little Sleepy" Glenn, Sleepy Hollow was built with the working man in mind. "Little Sleepy" distinguished himself as a basketball and football captain, and also later as a coach of both sports at West Virginia. Considered WVU's best all-around basketball player prior to World War II, Glenn established the season and career scoring records for that era. As a linebacker and blocking back, he was also a three-year football starter from 1927-29. Posting a 53-29-6 mark as a player in both sports, Glenn went on to become West Virginia's seventh basketball coach in 1934.

Posting a 61-46 record over five seasons in basketball, he also took over the duties as head football coach in 1937.
In his initial season as football coach, Glenn led WVU to a 7-1-1 record and its second bowl appearance in the 1938 Sun Bowl. Taking on slightly favored Texas Tech, Glenn relied on an impressive defensive performance as the Mountaineers won the game 7-6.
Glenn practiced medicine in Charles Town until his death in 1980. He is a member of WVU's all-time teams for basketball and football, and in 1992 was inducted into the WVU Hall of Fame.

THE LEGEND - With nine holes opening in 1962, "The Legend" of Sleepy Hollow started. Built on farmland that was originally purchased in the 1940's by Dr. Marshall "Little Sleepy" Glenn, "The Hollow" was born. In 1972 the second nine was opened with "Little Sleepy" actively guiding the design as well as the construction. Today the course is solely owned by his five children and their families.
