Good times

Haven’t played this course in over 20 years. Overall conditions of course were pretty good. Course experience helps here quite a bit. I hit a few drives really well but was not aware of the lakes protecting the green, so had about 4 penalty strokes which kept my round from being good to just average score wise. Course was pretty busy but finished at around 4.5 hours with a afternoon tee time. I will come back to the course for sure, couldn’t pass up on the $25 price.

Course and Staff

Fairways are well maintained except there are several puddles of water here and there due to poor irrigation system. Carts ran over them and ruined the nice fairways.
Staff is very helpful, quick and friendly. Kudos to manager Steve for running the golf course so smoothly.

Golf Course and Staff

Staff is friendly and courteous. Fairway and green are in good shape although some spots are soaked wet due to poor irrigation. Feel sorry when the carts ran over and damaged the fairway.
I love this course, we play there once a week every week

Refund please

I was told by staff at Meadowlark that if I booked a foursome and only played a twosome I would be refunded by the course at check in. Upon arrival staff informed me that Golf now needs to issue the refund. Please tell me what that process is and how to get started. Paid for 4 played 2.

Golf Course and Staff

Steve and his staff are friendly and efficient, this helped fast check in. Players are respectful and observed good pace of play, no Marshall needed.
A little remark that usually after a rain, some parts of the fairways are soaked wet. When carts ran over the puddles, they destroyed the nice green. Recommend improving irrigation.

SLOW

Had not played this course in years. The conditions were ok. The greens were ok. Course layout didn't make much sense on a few holes (had to ask directions to the next tee). Several tee boxes in the line of fire from other holes, without fencing or nets to protect you. Played on Saturday, so expected slow play, but waiting for four groups to tee off on the 7th was ridiculous. Played the 15th in the dark, too finish our 5+ hour day.

You get what you pay for.

Overall, course condition reflects green fees which was bargain value. Greens were in decent shape. I noticed a lot of trash on the course like empty beer cans. Pace of play was extremely slow, but expected given low price which attracts players with low skill level and no golf etiquette. Couldn’t believe I was told to reserve time for the range.

Meadowlark Needs Help

Recently Meadowlark has gone downhill in not only course condition, but with the ridiculous COVID rules in place which do not conform to today's medical science. For example, having to reserve, online, 45 minutes max of time in advance at the range which never uses the grass. Online reservations where you must pay for a foursome in advance with weeks to get a refund if you have less than four. I play here at least once a week because I live only 2 miles away, however, I have been playing other courses lately. The off-course amenities include a disgusting restroom in the dirty clubhouse and the restroom on the 17th hole is even worse. I'm not sure if Arcis isn't funding this course or if management is the issue but I crave a better place to play locally,
