Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Virginia
Was good in the past
Thick, heavy uncut rough
Fuzzy tough to putt greens
Deteriorating tee boxes
Horrible unkept traps
New management mostly concerned with your money and not your experience. Previous management group was much more personable.
Overall course in good shape greens ran true though pin placement on some holes ridiculous. Only big issue NO water coolers on course I will definitely play again
When I booked for all 3 nines I asked if the tournament would be a problem and was told no. When I got there today again told no problem. Then when time to play last nine was told could not play longest hole because of a different tournament. Was told could play one of the others again or refund. Told ranger he had said at the beginning and at turn it would not be a problem. He said again play others of refund. I don’t think it’s fair to tell someone this multiple times then this happens. Course was in good shape and staff other than this were very nice. Would play again and recommend but would be cautious and warn others.
We played yesterday morning and I have to say that the course has really gone downhill, since this spring.
Most tee boxes are full of bare spots and dead grass, most greens have many patches of what looks like black, bare soil (maybe mold?) and little to no grass, land almost all greens have poor aprons. The fairways are in very good shape, as in the past.
I'm not sure what's happened to the superintendent or the maintenance budget, but you'd expect a lot more from a course owned by a nursery chain. I really hope they get it together soon, because when it's in good shape, this is one of the best values in central Virginia.
We decided not to go again until next Spring.

We hope you'll bear with us through this transition and give us another try in the near future. Thanks for choosing Island Green/Longest Hole at Meadows Farms Golf Course.
Trying to figure out how this course is rated 4 stars. Fun layout, but the greens were atrocious today. Greens were nice a month or so ago; but very bad today.

Disappointed in conditions
Played the course 6 months ago and it was in good shape then with good greens. Played today and the greens were horrible. Out of 18 holes, maybe 2-3 greens were acceptable. No grass on some, grab grass on others, pitch marks on most, inconsistent grass length, etc. Would not recommend to anyone. .
Thank you for reviewing the course. Let us first start by apologizing for the poor experience you had during your visit. The current condition is by no means the standard we strive to achieve, and we are working towards getting things up to par. Thank you for playing Island Green/Longest Hole at Meadows Farms Golf Course. We hope to see you again soon.
Dont play the Long
I have been playing here for many years. The Long course the greens we terrible. They raised there prices over the last year and for the money they charge 40-50 bucks the course is not a good value. This course use to be great but something happened.
Hi, thank you so much for leaving us with your feedback. We value our customer experience, so your review is important to us. We will make note and we hope to see you back!
Had a great time out there like the staff and the. Course layout fun and challenging.
Amazing Layout Terrible Course Conditions
First off the layout and design is amazing WaterfallI/Island was the courses that I played.... Oh but the conditions dandelions and weeds every where and general maintenance of the fairways very poor. I think for the prices that they charge they would put more detail and care in the course. I hope they step up the maintenance of the course because it is an a great layout and I like the staff.

Pace of play was very slow
Pace of play was very slow not sure what happened but as we teed off we had 8 players in front of us and would not pick up pace after Marshall had talked to players it normally takes 4 1/2 hrs to play but almost 6 hrs on a weekday afternoon it was ridiculous...
I know the starter/Marshall was also getting frustrated with players cuz they were just laughing at them and saying whatever..
it was only 2 of us and we play here a lot cuz it’s a home coarse for us
Come On Guys Do Better
Played this course again yesterday. Course was the same, but it was unbelievable how many people were congregating in large groups, players were riding 2 to a cart, and the whole place seems WAY too cavalier about COVID-19. It’s like they don’t care, they are just pumping players out still. As a business they should be ashamed of themselves.
Hi Michael, thanks you for taking the time to review your recent round with us. We would like to apologize for the inconvenience that you experienced during your round.

That being said, please reach out to our team in the pro shop for further resolution in this matter.
First time playing. Lots of gimmicky holes. Rough conditions. Needs a lot of work. Lots of people standing around in groups (kind of upsetting with Covid-19 in the area).
Driving range and some practice facilities.
Had a good time with family.

Thank you for coming out and playing, we are glad you had a good time. We are working hard to get everything in great shape which will improve more when it gets warmer and the grass can start growing again. We are keeping a limit to how many can be in the clubhouse and doing our best to work with our guest to try and discourage hanging around the parking lot or at least to remember to keep that 6 foot distance. We want to keep everyone safe and still offer some fun exercise through this time . We are keeping everything sanitized constantly. If you have any more concerns please reach out to us, we are happy to get any suggestions that can help keep everyone safe.
Low score for pace of play cuz everyone else had the same idea but it was great getting out there and hitting a few.
Spending time with my son and enjoy our day it was worth the wait.
A fun track
This is really a fun track to play with your friends. Very nice layout with ups and downs. It’s pretty open but challenging with very nice scenery. The holes are moderately to very challenging and the pace of play, on this day, was very good. Given the time of year the course is in pretty good shape but could definitely use some work. Overall it was fun, fun, fun.
Been playing this course sparingly over the past few years. Have never really enjoyed it, but this past round was horrendous. The greens are terrible. There are weird bare spots or weeds on a lot of them. They were not putting very smooth at all. A lot of the fringes are bare. Fairways were in decent shape, and the tees were hit or miss.
The course is very gimmicky, which I guess is what they market towards. Unfortunately, it seems like a lot of poor golfers go there, because it took us almost 6 hours to play 18 holes. We were waiting 10 mins on every tee box. Felt like the starter wasn’t concerned about pace of play.
For new golfers: Greens are small and tough to hit. A lot of blind shots that if you don’t know the course, you will be in trouble.
My suggestion: Play somewhere else.

This is a very fun course to play great landscaping and some unique hole layouts. Included with the island 9 is a practice hole to warmup before keeping score. The par 6 is challenging but not impossible to par with strong 2nd and 3rd shots.
The Greens were rolling perfectly!
The Tee Boxes and Fairways were lush and the ball sat up nicely for approach shots!
Love this place!
